Capt. Robert Treat, John Curtis. Jasper Crane, and John Treat, were sent, in 1660, from Branford, Milford, and Guilford, in Connecticut, to view the country and lands in New Jersey. They returned and reported favorably, and were sent back with power to select a site for a town, and make a purchase. The result at that time was a purchase of the township of Newark, by its ancient boundaries.

The Indians called the town Passaic, but the inhabitants, called it Newark, after a town in England, from which the Rev. Mr. Pierson, their pastor, had come. Trumbull, the historian, says that Mr. Pierson, and almost his whole church and congregation, soon removed from Branford to Newark, and carried with them the church records. This removal took place some time previous to the 24th of June, 1667.

DANIEL DOD, Jun., eldest son of Daniel Dod, Sen., came to Newark, a minor, probably with the colony from Branford. He had a lot of land for his home lot in Newark, about Bridge Street, and northward.

Isaac was a captain, and at the beginning of the revolution was appointed justice of the peace, and continued to sustain that office till his death, in 1804. Amos Dod was also captain, and Caleb Dod major, in the same regiment.
