[1250] Smith and associated lines from a GEDCOM at RootsWeb by Ronald Cox [].

Found in Bound Brook area of NJ, near village of Woodbridge on land from his father; c. 1735.

In a land transfer dated 1718 Samuel Sr. gave his son, Samuel Jr., a meadow and half of land containing forty
acres lying within the township of Woodbridge on the east side of the road that leads to Elizabethtown. This land
was part of a parcel that Samuel Sr. received in his patent and the land layed out by the appointment of the freeholders.

A man named Jacob Janeway had a store in East Jersey. It appears to have been located in what was later the town
of Bridgewater and is, today, Bound Brook. Jacob kept a set of books (now called the Janeway Account Books) from
1735 to 1746 and the following items appear on page 43 of volume 33.

Smith... Joseph, Oct 35 - Sep 46, son to Samuel
... Otheniel, Jun 35 - Aug 46, son to Samuel; delivered to Joseph Smith
... Samuel, Mch 35/6 - Feb 45, at Lamerton, John Bewah near, James Anderson on his place
... Samuel Jr, Oct 44, Dec 44
... William, Dec 36 - Jan 42, son to Samuel; joint account with James Quirck.
