in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Papers, 1721-1879 (bulk 1765-1840), consisting of correspondence, legal papers, deeds and land patents, record and account books, and miscellaneous papers. The material concerns members of the Rutherfurd, Alexander, and Reid families, who were related by marriage; the largest groups of material relate to James Alexander, William Alexander (Lord Stirling), Walter Rutherfurd, and John Rutherfurd. There are also papers of mary Rutherfurd, in her capacity as executrix of John Rutherfurd's will. Much of the material has to do with the families' land holdings; members of all three families held shares in the Propriety of the Eastern Division of New Jersey, and in the Second Nine Partners Tract in New York. It includes surveys (including a volume of surveys of the Ramapo Tract in New Jersey dated 1767), rent rolls, memoranda about farms and tracts, legal papers, conveyances, and receipts (many for rents), as well as correspondence. There is a large group of letters relating to General John Reid's attempts to retain ownership of his American properties, which were under threat of confiscation because of his service in the British Army during the Revolution, including some from his daughter, Susanna Robertson; there is also material related to the settlement of his estate. There is another large group of letters from Judge Robert Morris, of New Jersey, and numerous letters from William Wilson of Clermont, which deal with Rutherfurd tenants in Little Nine Partners. Other people who wrote letters to members of the families include Cadwallader Colden, Lewis Morris, Robert Hunter Morris, and Thomas Penn. There is some material relating to the French and Indian War: Walter Rutherfurd's accounts for the 4th Battalion, 60th Royal American Regiment, and a list of provisions for the Niagara Expedition, probably created for William Alexander ca. 1759. Other papers include the will, dated July 28, 1715, of Governor Robert Hunter
