Records of the Dutch Congregation of Freehold and Middletown, 1758-1766

The Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey, volume 26 (1951) continues the records of the Dutch Congregations of Freehold and Middletown by covering baptisms beginning with 26 January 1758 (Jan, child of Andreas Voorhees and Antye Sutfin) and ending with 7 September 1766 (Joannes, child of Joannes Van der Veer and Maria Stryker).

The records for this period appear to be more complete and consistent then for the earlier years. The mothers are almost always listed and are recorded with their full surnames or patronymics. Many of the baptisms also record sponsors, and spelling of names is more in line with generally accepted modern day renderings of family names.
