Abstract:

"This book is designed to assist historians and genealogists in the rather daunting task of identifying European settlers on the Delaware River prior to the Quaker 'invasion' that began with John Fenwick's group in 1675 and culminated with William Penn's 23 ships in 1681-1682"--Preface.

"The first permanent settlement of the South River began in 1638 with the founding of New Sweden at Fort Christina (now Wilmington), a colony that spread northward to the Schuylkill and southward to Sand Hook (New Castle) by 1655. In that year, New Sweden surrendered to New Netherland and remained under Dutch rule until 1664, when the Dutch surrendered the river to the forces of the Duke of York. Thereafter, up to the time of the first English census in 1671, it remained a part of the Colony of New York, governed out of Fort James on Manhattan Island."--Preface.

"The document is endorsed, in the hand of Matthias Nicolls, then Secretary of Governor Francis Lovelace, as 'A list of Inhabitants of the Delaware' and dated 1761. It names 165 heads of households from Matinicum (Burlington) Island [Burlington County, New Jersey] on the north and New Castle on the south."--Page 1.

The census area is governed by several state jurisdictions, including: Burlington County, New Jersey; Philadelphia and Delaware counties in Pennsylvania; and New Castle County, including Wilmington, in Delaware.
