Summary
The petition of Stephen DeLancey, Lancaster Syms and Henry Whileman for themselves was considered. The petitioners claim that they obtained a grant in 1704 for a tract of land called Minisink, that the Proprietors of New Jersey having heard of it, said that the lands belonged to them. If the low lands are taken from the Proprietors, the petitioners ask that they be granted to them. It was ordered that the petition "lye on the Table" until returns from the commissioners and surveyors arrive. From the New York Secretary's Office, Minutes of the Council begun 21 July 1719. Examined by Goldsbrow Banyar. Entered before the Commission to settle the boundary between New York and New Jersey [ca July-October 1769].
