Here is what I have (sorry it so late, but I'm just starting to investigate this line of my family).

Judge Samuel Swezey, born March 20, 1689; died May 11, 1750. He moved with his family from Southold to the German Valley in New Jersey in 1737, and settled in Roxbury, now Chester, New Jersey, which became known as the "Swayze Settlement". There the spelling of the name as above was universally adopted. He was one of the first Justices of the Peace of Roxbury and one of the first County Judges. At his death he left by will, dated May 10, probated June 13, 1759, nearly 1000 acres of land to his family. His first wife's name was Penelope _____; died 1746. In 1747 he married Susannah Huntington; died 1776. His son, Samuel, was pastor of the First Congregational Church in New Jersey. (Excerpted from "The Down East Swaseys")

Hope this helps!
