About Robert Morse, Sr

Robert Morse, son of Anthony Morse, was probably born in England. He is said to have first resided in Boston,, Mass., Then in Newbury, "perhaps in Rowley, Mass.," but as he gave deeds from Newbury as late as 1667, and as his children's births came up to the very year of his settlement in New Jersey, it seems more than likely that he remained in Newbury until he joined the little band of Colonists which settled in East New Jersey. With them he took the oath of Allegiance in Elizabeth Town on February 19, 1665, and became one of the Associates. He received a home lot of six acres of land lying partly on Elizabeth river and other parcels of upland and meadow until his holdings amounted to two hundred and two acres. September 26, 1681, he gave a deed of a tract on Elizabeth river to his son-in-law, William Broadwell. June24, 1686, he bought one hundred and fifty acres; he continued to buy and sell land up to1700 when his last deed, signed February 26, 11699-1700, was laid out by John Harriman and the Company "chosen for that service," of one hundred acres, always signing as "Robert Morse, Taylor." One of his deeds was signed by his wife, Ann Morse. February 26, 1699-1700, this deed was south of the present village of Cranford, one mile west of Tahway river. His first wife, Elizabeth, died after 1644; he married (2), in Newbury, October 20, 1654, Ann Lewis, who died in Elizabeth, in 1686; he survived until after 1700.
