East New Jersey Land Records, 1702-1717 (Books H, I and "Little K")
Richard S. Hutchinson
This series covers the counties of Essex, Middlesex, Monmouth and Somerset. However, some Bergen Co. deeds are recorded, while others make references to Bergen Co. names within the deed's description. Hutchinson’s latest volume also includes nineteen wills, five intestate filings, and one declaration of intention to marry. In addition, the author has also added an addendum - a reprint of “A Further Account of New Jersey, In an Abstract of LETTERS Lately Writ from thence, By Several Inhabitants there Resident” (London, 1676). The period of this latest book, 1702 to 1717 is the general period of recording, not the date of the actual transaction (land sales, conveyances, mortgages, powers of attorney, etc.) which oft times predated the dates of the books. One is able to follow ownership of land from parents to their children and their children’s spouses in many of the conveyances.
