About Edward Hadden

Curator's note; Something is wrong with a death date of 1700. No dates in the profile notes so I deleted the date altogether. The name is definitely HADDEN at least for this time & place.

From Francis Basley Lee's Genealogy:

(II) It is safe to assume that a few of the Haddens, like many of the New England settlers, emigrated to Connecticut and eventually into New Jersey, as did Edward Hedden. While there is no documentary proof that Edward Hedden, born 1666, was the son of Jared Hedden, we do know that he married Jane Jones, a Welch girl, though no record of their marriage can be found at Newark or elsewhere. There was a family of Edward Jones which came in the fleet with Winthrop at the same time that Jared Hadden is recorded, which is mentioned as a coincident that a marriage should result between the near succeeding generations of Jared Hadden and Edward Jones. There is every evidence that Edward and Jane Hedden settled at the "Mountain," now in the vicinity of South Orange, where they received grants, as their sons John, Joseph, Eleazer and Oliver all owned tracts at the "Mountain." Jane Hedden, born 1668, was a member of the First Church, Presbyterian, at Newark prior to the formation of the "Mountain Society," and she is interred in the burial-ground of the church on Broad street, having died February 23, 1773, at the advanced age of one hundred and five years, and is said to have been the oldest person that ever died in Newark up to that time and possibly since then. Her gravestone was removed from the old Presbyterian cemetery at Newark when Broad street was widened, and is now in possession of Mr. Harry Hedden, a fourth great-grandson.

Children of Edward and Jane Hedden: John (q. v.) ; Joseph, mentioned below ; Eleazer (q. v.) ; Oliver; Dianna. born 1708, died October 27, 1728; Rebecca, unmarried.

Many of the early records that would throw much light on the Newark ancestors have been destroyed, but according to the best authority Edward and Jane Hedden owned lands in Newark, and their sons were possessors of these tracts later known as the Hedden tracts at South Orange at the "Mountain," near Luddington brook and Rahway river, where Edward and Jane lived and died. The Heddens of New Jersey were noted for their courage and firmness during the trying times of the revolution, many of them taking an active part in the scenes enacted in and around Essex county.
