Records of the Dutch Congregation of Freehold and Middletown, 1735-1741

The Records of the Dutch Congregation of Freehold and Middletown (Monmouth Co., New Jersey) covering the years 1735 to 1741 were published in volume 24 (1949) of the Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey.

Records of the Dutch Congregation of Freehold and Middletown, GMNJ v. 24 (1949)

The records begin with a clarification from the editor regarding the list of names that were published at the end of volume 23. The baptism records begin on page 46 (issue no. 2) and the first couple of dates appear to be out of sequence. The last date found on the records as published in volume 23 was 17 August 1735, that being the baptism of Neeltje, daughter of Syrynus Van Metere and Abigail Lefferse. The first baptism in volume 24 is that of Barbaraa, daughter of Petrec Heggens and Jannetie Tyse with the date June 23, 1736 printed under Barbara's name. This is followed by the baptism of Petrus, son of Pieter Voorhese and Arriantje Nevius, with the date March 10, but no year stated. The year 1735 then follows with one baptism dated 10 December (Henrikus, son of Jan Brouwer and Hilletje Van Kleef). The year 1736 follows and the remainder of the record appears to be in order. Volume 24 ends with the baptism of Gysbert, son of Johannes Hindrikson and Sarah Moesier, dated 26 April 1741.
