Is there a reliable source showing that Nicholas Davis actually lived in New Jersey in 1667-8?
posted by S (Hill) Willson
He did not; he received a patent but died in Rhode Island. See https://archive.org/details/historyofmonmou00salt/page/n45/mode/2up?q=nicholas+davis for additional references.

In 1676, Eliakim Wardwell (1634-abt.1692) was granted 2 acres of land "in right of Nicholas Davis." Source: New Jersey State Archives. Early Land Records, 1650-1900s (database). https://wwwnet-dos.state.nj.us/DOS_ArchivesDBPortal/EarlyLandRecords.aspx Citing Liber 2, Part B : Folio 45 (PEASJ003)

Wardell is also of Newport, as were several patentees and other settlers who migrated subsequently to Shrewsbury.

Note, I did not compile this list though it's useful; I am not sure I would have called him an "early settler" exactly, perhaps "early landowner" or similar? All the early settlers should be added to Category: New Jersey Founders.

Hi!

I posted on the Patentees page as well, but I'd like to list this as a sub-project of the United States History project, under New Jersey. Can we do so? I'll add the Project Coordinator badges to both you, and we can post about it in upcoming WikiTree newsletters to see if we can get you some more volunteers to help. Would you mind adding the New Jersey Projects category?

Thanks! Abby
