2. Heermans, Augustyn - Raritans
Augustine Heermans is represented in "East Jersey under the Proprietors," as purchasing these Raritan tracts on his own account. But this was not the case, as most clearly appears from a declaration of Jan Vigne, Schepen of New Amsterdam, dated 1st November, 1656, of which the following is a translation; "In the year 1651, 1652, Sieur Augustyn Heermans purchased from the Indians the Raritan lands for the behoof of the Hr. C. van Werckhoven, for which purpose he, deponent, was present when possession was taken of the afforesaid lands for the said Hr. C. van Werckhoven, and in the trees of each hook of the aforesaid land, were cut the marks of the Hr. C. van Werckhoven, thus, MH." New Amsterdam Records.

6. The Patents behind Kil van Kul, constitute the present town of Bergen, NJ.

7. "February 30, 1657" - Thus in the original.


Note: a morgen is a Dutch land measure, equal to about 2 acres.
