-------------------- Land Transfers and Will of John Throckmorton, Jr. John was among the first settlers in New Jersey under the NichollsPatent and was awarded town lots in Middletown at the original division in 1667

1685, July 20. For £375, Pennsylvania currency, he bought of Robert Turner, one of the twelve Proprietors, of East Jersey, 1/48 undivided part of the Province of East Jersey, it being 1/2 of said Turner 's 1/2 of Thomas Rudyard 's undivided 1/2 of the Province conveyed by Rudyard to Turner in 1682.

From John E. Stillwell, in his "Historical and Genealogical Miscellany" (1902), "1685, Dec. 4. John Throckmorton conveyed to James Bowne, Job Throckmorton, Joseph Throckmorton, James Ashton, Joseph Grover, Lidia Bowne, and Edward Smith, each, 1/10 of his 1/48; and to Benjamin Borden, John Smith, John Stout and Jonathan Holmes, each, 1/20 of his 1/48, of East Jersey. In consideration of the forgoing purchase and claim, the Proprietors on June 25, 1688, granted and released to the said John Throckmorton four hundred and eighty acres at Crosswicks, in Monmouth County, 'beginning at a Walnut tree standing on the South side of the Burlington path.'

"1688, Mch. 28. John Throgmorton sold to James Bowne 1/20 of his 1/24. Later, Sept. 22, 1699, James Bowne, as heir, conveyed this conveyance to his brother John Bowne who sold the 1/20 of 1/24 to James Alexander.

Stillwell also records various legal transactions of John's: "John Throckmorton drew in the first division of lands in Middletown: lot No. 24, Dec. 30, 1667, and lot No. 18, Dec. 31, 1667.... 1668. He recorded his cattle-mark.... 1668, June. John Throckmorton, Jr., engaged allegiance in Providence.... 1670, Aug. 31. He was a fence viewer.... 1671, Nov. 18. He was elected a Deputy to the General Assembly.... 1672, June. He was appointed Ensign. 1673, July 7. He was chosen Constable. 1673, September. He was appointed by the Dutch, a Justice. 1675, Jan. 1. He was a Grand Juryman for the year. 1675, June 29. He, with others, was appointed to determine the town boundaries. 1675, Nov. 2. He was elected a Deputy to the General Assembly, at Elizabethtown . 1677, Jan. 1. He was appointed one of the Deputies to meet the Governor, at Elizabethtown . Records, Middletown, N. J. , Vol. I. 1688, May 14. He was appointed one of two Deputies from Middletown , to the Assembly. Records of the Governor and Council of East Jersey, p. 146."

Stillwell adds, as if there were any doubt, "John Throckmorton was a man of eminence. He served as a representative in the Assembly 1675 to 1688; was the Town's representative to meet the Governor in 1677; was long a Judge in the County courts, and was one of the Committee, who, with the sheriff, was appointed to build the first Monmouth County jail in 1684. His lands amounted to several thousand acres and his purchases are too numerous to mention in their entirety.

"He died after an active and useful life, in the Summer of 1690, leaving a will recorded in New York and Trenton, N. J. , which mentioned the following persons: his wife Alice, who received his dwelling and orchard at Garret's Hill, in Middletown, and one hundred acres adjoining, and twenty acres of meadow; his son Joseph and daughter Rebecca, who received the balance of his uplands and meadow, lying within ten miles of his residence, at Garret's Hill, and to them likewise, upon his wife's demise, the bequest made to her. The rest of his lands and proprietorship he willed, equally, to his four other children, who are likewise to have one-half of the estate 'that doth by right belong to me by reason of my brother Joseph 's will.' Finally, he reserved for burial purposes, a one-quarter acre lot 'where my father is buried in Middletown.' The will was written July 17, 1690; proved Aug. 22, 1690. Witnesses: Richard Hartshorne and Job Throckmorton." On 8/22/1690 Administration of the estate was granted to Alice, the widow of John. N.J. Archives XXL, pg 179.

He was a member of the provincial assembly in 1675and a justice in 1683.
