Trenton free pdf Excerpt from Trenton: One Hundred Years Ago The following sketch of Trenton in the years 1776-77, is prepared from the statements of a few of our citizens who readily recall the men who lived here in those eventful years, from a very close search among land records, from Dr. Hall's "History of the Presbyterian Church, Trenton," from Mr. John O. Raum's "History of the City of Trenton," and other notes furnished by him, from newspapers published in Philadelphia about that time, the Packet, Journal, Ledger and Gazette, from maps obtained from offices of record in this State, and Hessian maps from Cassel. I am greatly indebted to the late Dr. James B. Coleman, Mr. John R. Dill, Mr. John S. McCully, Judge William S. Yard, Mr. Benjamin Fish and the late Jasper S. Scudder. In the beginning of the eighteenth century the land whereon Trenton is built appears to have been mostly Mahlon Stacy's tract, bounded by Heath's land, Petty's plantation and the Beakes property. In 1712, William Yard bought of Mahlon Stacy the property now on Greene street, south of State street to Washington street, and in depth one-half the present squares, in all about two acres. In 1714, he purchased of Andrew Heath one hundred acres, adjoining the Beakes estate, on what is now called Brunswick avenue. In the same year, 1714, William Trent, a Philadelphia merchant, purchased a considerable tract of land here, and a village was commenced, called after him, Trent's-town. The land east of what is now Greene street and south of Front street, was called Littleworth. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
