About Joseph Stockton

Joseph Stockton was Richard Stockton's Uncle. Joseph and Richard's father, John, were brothers.

Richard Stockton was a member of the first graduating class of the College of NJ (now Princeton University).

Richard Stockton initially showed little interest in politics. He once wrote, "The public is generally unthankful, and I never will become a Servant of it, till I am convinced that by neglecting my own affairs I am doing more acceptable Service to God and Man." Stockton did, however, later take an active role as a trustee of the College of New Jersey.
