The Boat Named "Exchange"
Posted by: D.A. Buck Date: October 15, 1999 at 08:13:43
  of 986

I know from other records that John Hampton left his native Elphinstoun, East Lothian, Scotland arrived Freehold, NJ on 19 Dec 1683 in the boat "Exchange" with his wife and five children, by 1 Dec 1684 John Hampton and family registered with the Secretary of the Colony of East Jersey located at Elizabethtown along with 24 other persons, all identified with the Scot Proprietors (Quakers) and indentured for four years.

Need the names of the other families who arrived with him. Does the families of Hoge, Leith, MacKay (any spelling) & or Brown arrived with him.

I have found John Hampton's records among L.D.S. microfilm of original Quaker Records in that location as MacKie (sic), Hoge & Brown.

Looking for a Robert MacKay Sr. born about 1685. Hampton's descendants removed to Cecil Co. MD about the same time as did Robert MacKay Sr. who later settled the lower Shenandoah Valley, VA.

Looking for publish books dealing with Scottish Quaker History of that period and early NJ records. Have L.D.S. records available to me and a local library rather good, just need titles of books.

Thank you for your time.
