Tl^l' PARISH RFGISTF-R OF ST. MARYS, BURLINGTON, N. J. 

The Records of St. Mary's Church, (Episcopal), of Buriington, N. J., are contained in 
several volumes, but only the first, which is of genealogical and historical interest, is here re- 
produced. This volume shows considerable decay, and is exposed to destruction by fire, as 
no special provision for its preservation has yet been made. Some years since, the Reverend 
Dr. Hills, then rector of this church, made a list of the names appearing in this volume, and 
inserted it in his history of this edifice, but as it kicks dates, it really is little less than an index 
to this volume. 

The copy here reproduced is verbatim ct literatim, save an occasional contraction in the 
spelling for brevity's sake. A comparison with Dr. Hills' list may show some seeming dis- 
crepancies in the spelling of names, but a careful consideration of the original text prompts 
me to hold for the accuracy of this copy. J. E. Stillwell. 

THE REGISTER OF THE CHURCH OF ST. ANN'S, 
AT BURLINGTON. 

Memorandum. This Church was called S'. Ann's, (in the first Charter granted Octob'' 
4"^, 1704, by Lord Cornbury), after the name of the Queen; but when a more ample charter 
was granted in 1709, Janu^ 25"^, by Lieu' Governor Ingoldsby, the Church was called S' Mary's, 
and so continues to be denominated, on account of its first foundation-stone having been laid 
on the 25"' of March, which was in 1703, but this it seems was not adverted to till afterwards.

Here Hcs a failliful follower of her Lord, 
Who with a humble heart her God ador'd 
Of meekness, patience, gentleness possessed, 
Of wives, of parents, and friends the best. 
For liberal hand did feed and clothe the poor, 
Who often in distress approached her door, 
The Widow and the orphan found her kind, 
But few such friends to them are left behind, 
Affection warm and strong she did possess, 
The benefits of which how many miss, 
We weep, but will not murmur or complain, 
Since our loss to her is greater gain. 
Now her immortal soul hath taken flight. 
To dwell \vith saints in realms of glorious light.

Christian faith, the consummation of hope, 

the dawn & the pledge of endless felicity. 

To those who knew him not no word can paint, 
And those who knew him, know all words are faint. 
Mark the perfect man & behold 
The upright for the end of that man is peace. 

For the benefit of Posterity, 

(as while her cotemporaries live 

she cannot be forgotten).

THE FIRST TOWN BOOK 
OF 
MIDDLETOWN, N. J. 

The records of Middletown, Monmouth County, N. J., consist of five volumes, viz.: The 
First Town Book, 1667-1695; The Second Town Book, 1699-1800; a book of "Estrays, " 
1731-1851 ; a book of "Cattle Marks," 1699-1853, and the "Town Poor Book." 

They have had many vicissitudes. The first volume had been unheard of for years when 
it was discovered by Gov. Joel Parker. While in his [jossession, in 1880, I made my copy, 
which is here reproduced verbatim et literatim. Subsequently it was returned by him to the 
town officials, and has again been lost.* 

At various times I have seen all these volumes, but now the most diligent inquiry only 
reveals tlie whereabouts of two, viz. : the book of " Estrays " and the book of " Cattle Marks." 

The First Town Book is probably the oldest document of any size in the State of New 
Jersey, and possibly with one exception, (Newark), is the only perfect record of any settle- 
ment on the original Nicolls' patent, most of the records of the towns on this land grant having 
either been lost or much mutilated. 

Between December, 1664, and December, 1666, the settlement of Elizabethtown, Mid- 
dletowTi, Shrewsbury, Woodbridge, Piscataway and Newark, w-as effected by English people 
who came from Long Island and New England. The Dutch who held these lands prior to 
1664, defeated all attempts to settle in this region by burdensome restrictions. When, how- 
ever, the Dutch were overthrown and the English became supreme, Nicolls, the Governor of 
the Province and representative of its owner, James, Duke of York, granted two patents, 
which, from their liberal character, drew many settlers to this tract of land. These grants 
were known as the Elizabethtown and Monmouth Patents and within their limits grew the 
towns above enumerated. 

After a brief ownership the Duke of York conveyed to Lord Berkeley and Sir George 
Carteret that portion of his domain which included these grants from Nicolls. Though this 
transfer from the Duke of York to the Proprietors was made at a date anterior to Governor 
Nicolls' patents, no news of the transaction had reached this country. The patents were ap- 
plied for, issued and received in good faith by both parties, and no questions arose concerning 
their validity until the settlers had located themselves upon their grants and had further ex- 
tinguished the Indian titles to the lands. 

In the meanwhile the divided domain was represented by two Governors, Nicolls ruling 
for the Duke of York, and Philip Carteret for the New Jersey Proprietors. The latter soon 

* In 1903 this book liad not been found, nor had it been seen since 1S84, when it was in the possession of 
Edward Hartshorne, Esq., now deceased, by whom it may have been loaned to others. The statement made in 
Ellis' History of Monmouth Co., N. J., that their quotations were made directly from this book is an error, Mr. 
Hartshorne assuring me that the compilers of this book had only been shown this valuable record, which is 
proven, as they have copied such typogr.iphical errors as were made by the Ahnmotiih Democrat in printing my 
original manuscript. 

Edward Tartte's writing fills the first fifty-nine pages of the book, 1667-1674. Signatures of James Mills and 
W" Lawrence, John Wilson, Mordecai Gibbons, Benjamin Stout, Jon" Stout, W'" Lawrence, Jr., James Bowne, 
Richard Hartshorne, James Grover and others appear. 

Some of the clerks 

" most worthy men 

handier with the ax than pen " 

rather than struggle with the entries, secured Tartte to do the clerical work and simply put their names thereto. 
Some who did not employ him would have been wiser had they followed the example of the others. 
The surname Deuell now reads Devell, with the accent on the first syllable.

commenced to exercise his prerogatives by enforcing taxation and creating laws which in- 
fringed the rights of the settlers under the Xicolls' charter. They rebelled promptly and in 
retaliation the validity of their land titles was questioned by Carteret who declared that they 
were null and void from being issued at a date later than the Duke's transfer to the Proprie- 
tors; that the Duke, represented by his agent, Nicolls, could not sell that which he did not 
own. On the other hand the settlers maintained that Nicolls' acts were legal, he being vested 
with governing power until relieved or stayed by an official notice to the contran-;and that, 
while he was superseded in England by the date of Carteret's commission, he was still the head 
of the government in New York, until his successor arrived, and his acts during this time 
were binding, especially as he lacked any knowledge of the Duke's conveyance to the Pro- 
prietors. This dispute was waged for many years and it is upon this interesting period in New 
Jersey State history that the old town book sheds much light.

norant what it is : yet as men : not void of Judgement knowing right well : that all oaths : 
engagements : or subscriptions : ought to bee administred and taken : in truth : in righteous 
nes and in Judgement : upon wch consideration wee are nott willing to sweare to (wee know 
nott what : yet by what hath bin presented and come to our hands from the Govemour at 
severall times viz : i : an order or law came in the yeare 1666 prohibiting any from selling 
wine to the Indians : under great penalty : though it seems now : that above the quantity of 
two gallons may bee tollerated by a law : 2d : warrants comming to our hands : nott in his i 
maiesties name but in the lords proprietors names : beeing such a name : as wee simple crea- j

craigiiity : ffrom vvch all laws must bee given : but all soe : the absolute propriety : from wch 
all lands must bee holdeii : (wee say) if this bee the interest soe specified in the Governors 
late order : and intended in the oath : and in partt the submission demanded by the act 

This is our result 

Wee having received a pattent from his Roiall highnes the Duke of Yorkes Deputy : 
owning us : nott onely to have purchased our lands from the cheife proprietors of the countrey : 
but all soe impowTing us to give prudentiall lawes to our selves : both for our safety : and our 
well beeing : : and should wee submitt to the interest : soe farre : as by either engaging : swear- 
ing : or subscribing to the lawes of the goverment under the lords proprietors : how contrary 
and preiudiciall would it bee to our present safetys witnes a law made the last generall assem- 
bly : giving liberty to sell wine to the Indians : wch liberty tends meerely to our destruction : 
many sad former experiences have wee had among us wittnessing the same : it beeing a liberty 
soe contrary to the lawes of New Yorke from whence our pattent had its originall over and 
besides (our pattent giving us such liberty) as giving laws to our selves : how are wee bound 
to take lawes from the goverment of the lords proi)rietors (criminalls and apeals excepted) 
by wch it is manifest : that neither the lords proprietors nor the generall assembly can in the 
least breake our liberties and priveledges : butt wee ourselves will bee found to bee selfe vio- 
lators of them in submitting by swearing 

[page] 14 
to such and Interest : as wee are nott bound to : besides at present noe provision beeing 
made by the lords proprietors Goverment. for the conservation of the liberties and privi- 
ledgcs of our pattent they are Hable to bee infringed upon by such acts wch are resolved 
by the maior vote in the generall asembly : then how should wee submitt by swearing to 
the lawes of the goverment : and nott bee guilty of selfe violation of our pattent ' our 
selves X And for as much as they are stiled the 'absolute lords proprietors fTrom hence : 
it is absolutely granted and necessaryly followeth that all such inhabitants as lives upon 
this propriety : are absolute tennants to the lords to the lords proprietors : and by vertue 
of this their submission : by oath to their Interest : are irricoverably invovld to pay such 
lords rents : as will answer the Interest to wch they have swome : and should wee submitt 
to the Interest soe farre as by swearing thereunto : Having a propriety of lands nott onely 
purchased from the cheife Proprietors of the Countrey : \'iz : the Indians : but allsoe 
granted unto us by the Deputy to his Royall highnes the duke of Yorke (wch apears under 
hand and seale) it would bee an act beneath the wisedome of the owTiers of such a pattent : 
and herein wee should apeare to bee selfe violators of our pattent ourselves : and for as much 
as the lords proprietors rents from such inhabitants as lives upon the propriety) apears in the 
concessions : viz : a halfe penny an acre at least : should wee submitt soe farre' to the Interest 
by swearing : whose acknowledgments by vertue of pattent to his Rovall highnes : have their 
dependancy upon such payments as others his maiesties subiects doe in the goverment of New 
Yorke to his Royall Highnes : it would bee an act as wee conceive wch would bee a dishonner 
to him that gave it : Here in wee should apeare to bee selfe violators of our pattent our selves : 
but for as much as there is an asignement made by his Royall highnes to the lords proprietors 
of such a tract of land in wch our pattent may bee compreliended : wee looke at our selves 
to bee (not onely) responsible to the lords proprietors : in all such aclcnowledgments as others 
his maiesties subjects doe : in the government of new yorke to his Royall highnes : (butt alsoe) 
to transmitt all criminalls arising amongst ourselves : and such apealls as are proper to bee 
transrnitted : to the triall of lords proprietors goverment : : These : and noe other beeing the 
same iniunetions : wch once wee were subordinate to the goverment of New Yorke : nott any 
way now nullified : altered : or changed as wee conceive but onely tranf erred by virtue of the 
Assignement to the sayd lords proprietors and their Goverment : Notwithstanding for the 
future benefitt and tranquillity : and for the establishment of peace in the province : wee

In a Icgall lowne meeting: the maior partt bccing present it was onicrefl that following 
writing shall be sent to the Oovcmour: and counsell and Deputies of the townes of the province 
assembled toghether at Elizabeth Town the 12th of this present month x x x x Honoured 
Govemour: the counsell and Deputies of the Generall asembly x x x x 

wee receaved by the hands of some of the men of Woodbridge the late acts of the generall 
assembly at their last Adiourment bearing date 22 of November: as allsoe a summons under 
hand and scale of the province for choice of Burgcs scs for a further asembly to bee Held the 
12th of this present month: both wch beeing enclosed in a paper sent unto us by the Honored 
Govemour: desiring our compliance to answer the summons: and further requesting our pos- 
itive answer by the bearer : to wch wee say : that such is : and Hath bin our fonvardnes for com- 
pliance at all times : that there hath bin anci is noe need of any ocasion : either to instigate or aug- 
ment our forwanlncs tliere unto : having not at any wilfuly omitted any opertunity of apearing by 
our deputies to do such service as hath bin required of us : besides : the sincerity of our desires : 
beeing soe well knowne to god and our oane consciences herein: in point of true loyall sub- 
mission to the govermcnt of the lords: proprietors: soe farre forth as is proper to our condi- 
tion to the very utmost that can bee claimed from us: whose Just power: wee have formerly 
(as it is well known) withall gravity owned but when wee consider (having pondered well in 
our minds) the late act now presented to us: and being therein charged: with noe les then 
contempt of arthority and goverment : the charge being soe generall : viz the 

[Page] 39 
The townes of middleton and Shrewebury the forciblcnes of the charge: soe great viz: 
an act of the generall assembly : and withall Judgeing the charge the whole ground of the act : 
for what grater force can there bee then a generall act : Wee say : wee : (weighing these things 
in the ballances of equity) Judge ourselves at present all toghether uncapable of answering the 
summons: aprehending ourselves at present: rather fitter to bee cleered publickely of soe 
weighty a charge: then to Joyne with the Govemour: counsell: and deputies of the townes 
of the province in the exercise of any legislative power: for the settlement of any thing: needful! 
and necessary for the well governing of this province and shoud have now apeared to have 
answered to the charge if that writt had apeared amongst us wch the late assembly gave the 
Govemour thatt power to issue forth: further more (conceaving under coiTcction) that noe 
such perogative or priveledge: may bee conferred upon contemners: and despisers of goverment 
much Ics noe such thing as either the dignity of a freeholder to elect or the dignity of a Deputy 
to act for the good and welfare of any state or province : and therefore for the fuller clearing 
of our selves : our desire is that the late act (acording to the current thereof) may bee exactly 
procecuted: that soe that power (wch the late assembly of deputies at their last Adiourment 
tooke upon them to give the govemour) may now bee putt in execution : for had that writt 
apeared now amongst us : wee question nott : butt w-ee should have shewed our ready and wil- 
ling obedience to have answered thereunto (beeing carefull of incurring upon any Atta^mdor 
of rebellion : butt that writt apearing nott amongst us : wee Judged our selves not obligd to come 
to answer: and thus in breife have wee given account of our present condition: under favour 
waiting onely wth all humility (pro forma tantum) as to what is further required of us in the 
late act : viz to shew cause why wee will nott pay our Just proportion of expences of provision 
taxed [?] at two assemblies in the yeare (68) wee answer: that what was expended at the as- 
sembly Held 25 May (68) wee had then noe deputies there to expend 

[Page] 40 
and further what was expended at the adiourment in november followTng in the same yeare: 
Our Deputies who were there and nott suffered to act butt turned home agayne reported to 
us : that the Deputies for the townes of the province : invited them one night to supper : wch 
before their departure thence they tendred them mony for itt : soe that : as w-ee abhorre all 
such basnes of spcritt : as to eat any mens bread for nought : soe : wee come not : by what wee 



I70 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY. 

have soe liglitly as to pay other mens expences : who wee conceive rather shew an evcll mind 
in dcsirring it itt so that if any thing by the power of the province be forced from us at any 
time: (upon this acount) viz: for the discharge of expences of provisions for those two assem- 
blies: wee hope wee shall neither be ashamed nor afTrayd to declare it to bee open and mani- 
fest wrong: furtlicr wee give yce to undcrstrmd: the cause and reason why our deputies ap- 
eared not at the last adiourment: when the time came that they should goe: our vcsscll was 
accidentalv drove away by wch meanes they were disabled from coming and for the space of 
neere 14 dayes to ghether noe vessell could not bee gott in any capacity to transport them: 
this beeing the very ground and reason why they came nott: and therefore wee conceave: 
that what providentialy fall out: men of reason and understanding will bee well satisfied 
withall X 

It is likewise ordered: that the Clearke (at present) shall signe to this above sd answer

RECORD 
of the 
BAPTIST CHURCH, MIDDLETOWN, N. J 



The records of the MiddletowTi Baptist Church have been poorly kept. Prior to 1 7 1 2 none 
are knowTi. 

From 171 2 to 1735 they are meagre and suddenly stop, and leave us iminformed of church 
matters, until 1785. Space has been left between these dates, 1735-1785, from which it would 
appear that former church clerks kept their records loosely, and often as personal, rather than 
church property, with intent to insert them at convenient time, and such has recently been 
proven the case by the discovery of Elder Mott's Journal. 

The book, in possession of the church, is a large parchment bound folio, and opens: 

"THE CHURCH RECORD BEGUN DENOVA JUNE ANNO DOM 1712" 

"At a meeting y' 31^' day of May Anno Dom. 1712 Ordered y* y' foore first Leaves of this 

book be Cut out and Set[ ?] out y' it may be knowen how many leaves are Cut out by 

Order of said Meeting. 

" Att ye yearly meeting May ye 24'*' Anno Dom 171 2", an agreement was made to submit 
d'fTerences, to friends from Philadelphia, in the matter of the regularity of excluding John 
Okison from the church as a member, and whether, if they find him guilty, he be allowed to 
preach 

After a lengthy digest of the disturbance the referees decided upon a course, adopted in 
eight articles, which left the church the privilege to select Bray or Okison and to which they, 
the referees, subscribed : 

Timothy Broocks James James 

Abell Morgan Griffith Miles 

Joseph Wood Edward Church 

Elisha Thomas William Betredg 

Nicolas Johnson John Mannery 

After another series of devout utterances in eight provisions, the members sign an agreement.

INSCRIPTIONS 

FROM 

THE BURYING GROUNDS 

OF" 

MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. . 

In walking through the cloisters of Westminster Abbey you may see at your feet lines, in 
brass and stone, now nearly efiaced. They once recorded, in eulogistic verse, the pious acts 
of saintly monks or the mighty deeds of valiant knights. But, alas, like the dead whose memory 
they were ever to keep fresh, they too have passed into dust, and we are left to conjecture 
what they were and to ponder over the effects of time. It is now too late to rescue these epi- 
taphs, and no man can unbosom the secrets of these stones. The same profound feeling of 
regret that I experienced there has more than once been awakened in looking into the bury- 
ing grounds of old Monmouth. Here, as in the old Abbey, has time been at work, and more 
than one stone stands mute. Tliis countn,^ is young compared with others, yet old enough 
to have a noble history of its own, and the essential element of that history is the action of 
its men. To save all that which pertains to them is absolutely necessary, and too long already 
has been the delay. While much is lost, we can, by way of atonement for past neglect, rescue 
that which remains, and there is no field which calls for prompter attention, or which will 
prove more profitable to the historical and genealogical student, than the old graveyards 
scattered through Monmouth County. It is difficult to realize that the fair fields of ^Ionmouth 
were once covered by a forest, massive and trackless. Following the arrival of the settler, 
clearings were made and humble homes were erected. There were no attempts made at dis- 
play, no vying to outdo the other, but an intense, earnest eflfort on the part of each to develop 
his own resources. They who first penetrated here were men fitted by previous experience 
to grapple successfully with all obstacles, and soon they transformed portions of this wilderness 
into "garden spots." Many of them had reached mature age and not a few were advanced 
in years, so that only a short time elapsed before some of their number were laid low in death. 
All communicating roads were, as yet, mere foot-paths, and no common place of sepulchre 
had yet been thought of, and could not have been attained, even if desired, from the unopened 



278 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY. 

condition of tlie country and the widely scattered locations of the settlers; hence, as deaths 
occurred, all families were forced to bur>' on their own land. Later, those who were con- 
nected by marriaj:;e, or who had the claims of kinship or friendship, were laid to rest in these 
original plots. Still later, when religious societies erected church edifices, it became a common 
custom to inter beneath their shadow, and in more than one instance the graveyard has out- 
lived the church.* Slowly the churchyards have filled, and as a consequence the large ceme- 
teries now in use have been set apart. What the future has in store it is hard to say, but if 
the stor>' can be read in the experience of the past, time will leave no greater trace of the tomb- 
stone than it does of the body over which it was reared. 

Already many have gone, and with them a priceless historical note; some gone by the 
action of time, some by the destructive hand of man, who, in his greed for the quarter acre 
lot, has cast down the rails, ploughed over the mounds and incorporated the headstones in 
the masonry on his farm.** 

In nearly all instances, the earlier deeds contained reser\'ations protecting these primitive 
graveyards, but in the frequency of transfers they have, of late, been omitted, and, even when 
not, the occupant has sometimes disregarded his obligation and leveled them to the ground. t 
However, in justice let it be said that some, even where no tie of blood exists, have kept these 
lots in repair, and in other cases, where circumstances have made it desirable that they should 
be abolished, they have removed all that remained to the larger cemeteries, with due regard 
for those who were living as well as with proper reverence for those who were dead.tt 

It will be obser\'ed that no tombstone antedates the year 1709; the earlier ones, if any 
ever existed, are destroyed. Doubtless the first generation of settlers had monuments erected 
over their graves, but whether of a lasting kind is much to be doubted. The scarcity of graves 
made it no difficult matter to fix in mind the occupant of each, and it was only as interments 
increased that it became necessary to distinguish one from another. Hence the mound of 
stones gave place to the wooden tablet, and this in turn to the tombstone. Among the oldest 
ones time has made serious inroads, and before another decade will have passed many will 
have become indecipherable. While the record of an interment may be preserved here, it 
must, sooner or later, come to pass that, as the epitaph becomes obliterated, the exact loca- 
tion must be lost, and for that I can see no help. 



THE PRESBYTERIAN BURYING GROUND 

MIDDLETOWN. N. J. 

On the South side of the highway running through Middletown may be seen, standing 
close to the road, an enclosed graveyard. In Summer it is somewhat obscured by the dense 
gro\\'th of shrubs and weeds, but in Winter, when the leaves have fallen, it cannot fail to attract 
attention. It lies between the farm of Dr. Edward Taylor on the West and the farm of the 
late Crawford Hendrickson, Esq., on the East. It was here that the Presbyterian church was 
erected, and where in turn the Rev. Messrs. John Boyd, Joseph Morgan, Samuel Blair, Elihu 
Syxjncer and Charles McKnight preached the gospel. In time, both pastors and flock were 
dispersed, and the church fell into decay. At what time its final demolition occurred it is 
hard to say, but it was many years ago. The tombstones in this cemetery are in a singularly

fine state of preservation, owing partly to the exposed condition of the stones and protection 
thereby from dampness, and partly to the fine quality of the stone itself. Of the exceptions 
to this that exist, the most conspicuous is that of the tombstone of John Bowne, Esq., which 
is badly effaced near the ground level. A few others are Ijeginning to yield to time, having 
cracked and fallen to the earth, but in the main the condition of the plot and the stones is 
better than will be found in yards of more recent origin. The oldest stone in the yard is that 
of Capt. John Bowne, erected in 171 5-16. It is not unlikely that some were interred here 
prior to that date, of whom there is now no visible record.

BURYING GROUNDS OF MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. J. 281 

TALLMAN BURYING GROUND 

ON PUMPKIN POINT. SHREWSBURY. N. J* 

In this plot is interred the founder of the Tallman family in this locality. He was the 
son of Dr. James Tallman, of Rliodc Island, and was born, according to the Rhode Island

* During the Summer of 1903, Mr. George Dougl.iss Tallman. acquainting few or none of Dr. Stephen Tallman's descend- 
ants, removed the tombstones, and such remains as could be found in this lot. to Fairview Cemetery. Middletown, N. I. The 
natural obliteration of the bodies and the utter impossibility to locate those buried without stones, as for instance the wife and sons 
of Dr. Tallman, made such a removal a farce. Surely more of the family was left behind than taken, and it is another instance 
of interference, lacking as much in sentiment as justice.

TOPANEMUS BURYING GROUND 
MARLBORO. N. J. 

Topanemus was the name applied, in the early history of this county, to a locality origin- 
ally situated in Freehold to\\Tiship. but now in Marlboro. The name is perpetuated by its 
application to an old graveyard situated on the farm of John Vandevere. 

It was here through the efforts of George Keith, that a Quaker meeting house was built 
in or about the year 1692, which subsequently, when he repudiated Quakerism and crossed 
over to the established church of England, became an Episcopal house of worship. As such 
it was used for some time, but doubtless later was either rebuilt or substituted by another 
edifice which they called St. Peter's. 

Topanemus was in no sense a settlement, but merely a church site. The Rev. Thomas 
Thompson, writing in 1 745-1 750, says: The situation of Topanemus. which is distant from 
any town, is, however, convenient enough to the congregation, and was resorted to by many 
families in ^Iiddlesex county, &c. 

At a date subsequent to 1751, but prior to 1760, the church at Topanemus was tom dowTi, 
and still bearing the name of St. Peter's, was rebuilt in the village of Freehold. Into the new 
stmcture was worked a portion of the material taken from Topanemus, and it is in this now 
old church that the Episcopal serA-ice is still conducted. 

The site of the graveyard at Topanemus is distant some little way from the road, yet can 
easily be seen. Trees and underbrush are plentiful, and the stones are moss-covered, fallen 
and broken, and some unhappily lost. Of the origin of the name there is no certainty, but 
from its pecuUar sound it is presumably Indian.

THE ANCIENT LIl'PIT, OR TAYLOR, BURYING GROUND 
MIDDLETOWN, N. J. 

This plot is situated on the farm of Mr. Charles Morford, on the North side of the high- 
way in the village of Middletown, about five rods back from the road, directly behind the 
residence of Mrs. Blanc. The ground was first appropriated for this purpose by John Throck- 
morton, the 2d, who, in his will written in 1690, makes reservation of it as one quarter of an 
acre in Middletown, where my father was buried. 

This property passed to his daughter Sarah, who married Moses Lippit, and from their 
son, John Lippit, it was conveyed in the year 1754, to Edward Taylor, always, however, "re- 
serving and excepting a small piece of ground being enclosed in the burying yard, being in 
length about eighty -four feet and in breadth about thirty feet." From and after this date 
it became also known as the Taylor burying ground, which name it now bears to the exclusion 
of the other. In it are interred John Throckmorton, the ist, and his sons John and Job ; Sarah 
daughter of John Throckmorton, (2d), and her husband, Moses Lippit, as also several of her 
children, and Alice, daughter of John Throckmorton, (2d), and her husband. Thomas Stillwell, 
and their son John Stillwell and his wife, ;\Iercy Burrows. How many others may he here 
it is impossible to state. The graves of many of these enumerated have been unmarked, and

of the old stones have fallen and others are fast losing their epitaphs by reason of their age, 
but all are still decipherable.

THE HARTSHORXE BURYING GROUND 

MIDDLETOWN, N. J. 

The yard is conspicuously situated on the North side of the highway in Middletown vil- 
lage. There are few old stones in the plot, but doubtless there are some early settlers or their 
immediate descendants buried there, other than the Hartshomcs; such privilege being ex- 
tended to them by circumstances readily imagined. When Richard Hartshor.e, the first, 
moved from Portland Point to the village of Middletown, he built the old house which still 
stands on the North side of the street, and which today is probably the oldest building extant 
in this county. Here he died in 1722, and in his wi\l made mention of a "family burial plot 
of a half acre on the street, in the orchard east of the house where I now live." Here he was 
buried, though the knowledge of the exact site is lost.

The largest and most conspicuous stone in the yard, is today, in part, indecipherable. 
The Latin inscription is crudely engraved and the stone itself much worn, making a perfect 
transcription impossii)le and the accuracy of the translation a trifle doubtful. It marks the 
place of interment of the Rev. John Boyd, and, when the church was yet erect, it probably 
stood close to its walls.

QUIT RENTS. 



The feud that arose between the Settlers and the Proprietors has been, of late years, fully 
dealt with in various New Jersey histories, and it is only necessary to briefly outline it here 
for a proper understanding of the Quit Rents. 

It seems paradoxical to state that the sparsely settled to\\Tis of New England and Long 
Island were crowded ; yet, within a few years after their establishment, such was the feeling 
of their occupants, and they began to look about for other lands whereon to settle either them- 
selves or their rapidly growing families. With this in view, a number of the English of Graxes- 
end sailed to the Navesink region, December, 1663, to barter for the lands of the Indians; but 
the Dutch claimed sovereignty, and for the moment defeated their aims. Before many months 
elapsed, the long-existing friction between the Dutch and English was terminated by the con- 
quest of the former, who capitulated to Col. Richard NicoUs, who had been sent against them 
by Charles II. with a force of six hundred soldiers, in three vessels carrying one hundred and 
fifty guns. NicoUs, likewise, bore a commission, as Deputy Governor, under the Duke of 
York, afterward James II., who had received the lands, now known as New York and New Jersey, 
from his brother, the king. To rapidly develop this territory, Nicolls made generous terms 
to the willing and eager settlers, which included : 

(i) The right to purchase the Indian title without tax of any kind on the part of the Gov- 
ernor; 

{2) To Ix; free from all manner of assessments for the five years succeeding the crea- 
tion of a town, which was obligatory, and at the expiration of that period to be taxed only 
for tlie public rates, as then customary among the English and Dutch ; 

(3) To own the lands absolutely; 

(4) To have freedom of conscience, limited self-government, and the election of their 
minister, as well as civil and military' oflicers. 

Not one suggestion was made that they should pay rent for their lands. 

The tempting pledges held out by Nicolls produced prompt emigration from Rhode Island, 
Massachusetts and New York, many settlers disposing of their lands and laboriously journeying 
with their families and belongings to the new Mecca. 

Upon April 8, 1665, Governor Nicolls conveyed, to twelve Patentees and their associates, 

364 



QUIT RENTS. 365 

the lands now contained in Monmouth County, and parts of Middlesex and Ocean Counties, 
with a sea-front of more than one-half of the present State of New Jersey, in a patent which 
embodied the promises and stipulations made in his proclamation of Sept. 30, 1664. 

The settlers promptly complied with the terms of the patent, but the auspicious condi- 
tions under which they started were soon marred by an infringement of their rights by new 
owners of the land. Lord Berkeley and Sir George Carteret, Lords Proprietors, who had bought 
the Duke of York's title to the property, and sent as their representative Philip Carteret, 
who superseded Nicolls in office, and who promptly promulgated new terms imposed by his 
masters, which ignored the agreements under which they had taken up the lands. Chief among 
these was the demand of the Proprietors for rent, the right to which was resisted and became 
the cause of great unrest and revolt. The contention of the settler was that he had in good 
faith abandoned one home for another, under assurances of no rent for lands which he bought 
of the Indians, and for which he braved the hardships of a new country, the solitude of a wilder- 
ness, and the dangers of the wild beasts and savages; while the Proprietors claimed that the 
titles given by Governor Nicolls were void, as they were issued at a date subsequent to their 
ownership of the land, and that he could not grant that which he or his master did not own ; 
to which the settler demurred, answering that Governor Nicolls' acts were binding till he was 
relieved of office. Defiance, disputes, appeals, friction, riots and imprisonments, covering 
many years and many changes of ownership, were the outcome. One concession only was 
made on the part of the Proprietary interests, namely, a grant of five hundred acres of land 
to such of the Patentees who had laid out money in purchasing the Indian titles. This was 
accepted by the Patentees, with reservations. The associates, in fear that the despotism 
which prevailed at home and abroad might work to their lasting injury, reluctantly recog- 
nized the Proprietory power by applying for warrants and surv-eys for their previous grants, 
upon which Quit Rents were then levied and collected.
