In its settlement, New Jersey was not an English colony. The claims of the Crown, based upon early discovery and various grants, were ignored by Holland and sweden. It was not until '1664, practically a hall-century after the first occupancy of New Jersey by a white man, that England had much influence upon the destinies of the State.

In settlement, Holland was first to send out planters, under the auspices of the Dutch West India Company. Claiming both the valleys of the Hudson and the Delaware, because of the explorations of Hudson and Mey, land was taken up upon the banks of the Hudson, Passaic, Hackensack, Raritan, and smaller streams tributary to New York harbor, as well as at Gloucester upon the Delaware. By 1630 these claims were established by occupancy, and by the creation of a centre of local government in what 12 now New York City.
