Abstract
Some contentious persons have laid claim to certain tracts of land within the territories of the Duke of York under color of pretended grants from Colonel Nicolls, dated 1 December 1664 to John Baker & Associates, and 8 April 1664 to William Golding & Associates. These grants are void in law. When the occasion offers, Lovelace should make known to all persons concerned that the Duke of York will no t tolerate any such departures from his original grants to Berkeley and Carteret. Lovelace should assist the deputies and agents of Berkeley and Carteret in furthering the settlement and maintaining the quiet of the parts concerned. From the Public Records of the Province of New Jersey, III, 59. Examined by Bowes Reed. Entered before the Commission to settle the boundary between New York and New Jersey, 23 August 1769.
