Abstract:

The records consist of Reels 8 through 23 of the microfilm edition. Reels 1-7, containing the general papers (1664-1782), and Reels 24-26, containing New York-New Jersey boundary dispute papers (1719-1754), account books (1711-1835), Hoboken Land & Improvement Company records (1835-1946) and miscellany, were not purchased. The portion selected focuses on the activities of John Stevens and his sons in the development of steamboat and railroad transportation. Included are materials on the controversies with Robert Fulton, Robert R. Livingston and Aaron Ogden, the operation of stagecoach and steamboat lines and the early railroad promotions. Official records of the Camden & Amboy are not included. Other papers deal with canals and dams, harbor improvements and fortifications, the Stevens battery, the development of ordnance, the Rocky Hill and Pluckemin copper mines and the development of the Hoboken property prior to the formation of the Hoboken Land & Improvement Company.

Because the arrangement of documents is strictly chronological irrespective of subject or family member involved, some material on earlier generations is included on the purchased reels. This includes papers relating to the East and West Jersey Proprietors and the East-West Jersey boundary dispute. Several groups of estate papers include those of John Stevens II, his uncle Fenwick Lyell, and James Alexander, the latter containing information on the great colonial land grants in New Jersey.
