East New Jersey Land Records, 1763-1766


The dates given in the titles of each book are those found on the original books. These dates, however, do not represent the years in which the land sales, purchases, and the deeds took place. In all cases, the actual deeds in these books are much earlier-with some dating or referring to deeds of the 1600s. Do not depend upon the book dates when searching for the earliest date of your ancestor's purchase or sale of property! This series covers the counties of Essex, Middlesex, Monmouth and Somerset. Although Bergen County was a part of East New Jersey, the records for this period were recorded at the county courthouse and are not included here. Many familial relationships are revealed in these records.
