The following data is extracted from Herbert Family Papers.
The following record of deaths, same source, is rather interesting:
Susannah Herbert, daughter of Bridget Herbert, died March 16th 1682.
Thomas Herbert died Dec. 4th
Thomas Herbert died Aug.18th 1735 (evidently eldest son)
Elizabeth Davis died Aug.14th 1728 Who, by all that is puzzling, was Elizabeth Davis?
3. Francis Herbert, of Middletown, Monmouth County, New Jersey, yeoman. Place
of birth and date unknown. He probably arrived is the colony with him parents or
parent, not later than 1670, and was likely a minor at that time. There is no record
of his having done any thing startling; bought and sold land and was apparently
friendly with his neighbors. Some references to him in Mr. Salter’s book have been
