About Benjamin Wade

Born: 1636             at: Jamaica, Long Island, NY  

Married: APR 1670 at: Long Island, Suffolk, NY

  Died: 21 MAY 1700      at: Rahway Public Cemetary, Rahway, NJ  

Benjamin Wade was not born in Elizabeth, but rather, Connecticut or England. He came to Elizabeth as an "Associate" or original proprietor in 1675, and purchased land in 1676 from the Governor. My info comes from Honeyman's book The History of Union COunty, NJ, which cites the original records. The settlers in these early years were Connecticut Puritans and some Dutch from Long Island. Ben married Ann Looker and died about 1698. I hope this helps.
