Brief Colonial History
Types of People
Come settle in our colony!
The Dutch founded New Netherland in 1613 that was used as a trading post for exchanging animal furs. In 1664 an English captured New Netherland and it was renamed New York. This was called the English conquest. The land between the Hudson and Delaware rivers became known as the colony of New Jersey.

New Jersey was founded by Sir George Carteret and Lord William Berkeley in 1664. The Duke of York made them proprietors (the owner of a buisness or holder of a property) of New Jersey. New Jersey is actually named after the British island named Jersey which is located in the English Channel.
The New Jersey Colony was one of the first original colonies located on the Atlantic coast of North America. It was considered one of the middle colonies along with New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware.
The colony of New Jersey existed from 1664 to 1776 when it joined the other colonies to rebel against Britain. Then in 1787 New Jersey became the third state to become part of the US.
The types of people who live in New Jersey are the Dutch, Swedes, Finns, Scots,Catholics, Lutherans, Jews, and the Quakers. The Quakers are one of the largest religious groups in New Jersey. Some of the main things that the Quakers believed in were equality between men and women, nonviolence, and religious tolerance for all people. The Quakers were the first people to stand up against slavery in 1688.

New Jersey produces all sorts of crops and grains as well as livestock like cattle. They supply all of this and more to merchants of New York and Philadelphia to carry on their trade. New Jersey had a distant government which meant it encouraged merchants to move there. The middle colonies are known as the breadbasket colonies because of the amount of wheat and corn they grow.
New Jersey does not have a specific or mandatory religion. They gave the freedom of religion to everyone. So anyone can practice their religions like the Quakers, the Catholics, the Lutherans, the Jews, and many others.
