Francis Herbertís children
The following data is extracted from Herbert Family Papers.
Francis Herbertís children:
Thomas Herbert, Sr., of Upper Freehold, m. Elizabeth _______and had Thomas Herbert, Jr. (presumably).
Joseph Herbert, of Bordentown, b. Oct. 22, 1736, m. Amy Lawrence.
Richard Herbert, of Upper Freehold, m. Deborah Lawrence, May 2, 1752.
Probably other children.
Obadiah Herbert, of Perth Amboy, m. Hannah Lawrence, about 1730;
Bridget Herbert, m. Thomas Lloyd of Perth Amboy.
Have just discovered the following:
1677- June 4. Patent. Gove Carteret to Thomas Harbor of Middletown for land there, subject to quit-rent of 1/2 penny for each acre, said rent to begin 25 March 1670. (Liber. No 1, of East Jersey Patents, p. 168).
1677 - Juno 20. Same to Francis Harbor of Middletown, yeoman, also subject to same quit-rent from 1670. (Ibid. p. 171)
From this it would seem probable that Bridgetís husband bought land in Middletown in 1670, died soon afterwards, leaving minor children and she rented the house until they came of age?
