—Jamestown Settlement —

One of the thirteen original colonies


Dutch merchants established trade with the Lenape Indians and set up trading posts at present day Jersey City in 1618 and Fort Nassau in 1624. Swedish settlers came to the area in 1638. After sporadic fighting, they yielded control to the Dutch in 1655 and in 1664 the English seized control. Proprietorship of the region was granted to Lord John Berkeley and Sir George Carteret. The province was divided into East and West Jersey in 1676. The two proprietors surrendered their power to the English crown in 1702, but land disputes continued into the 18th century.
