  • Notes 
    • Speaker of the New Jersey Assembly during the early runup to the Revolution. Attended the 1765 congress of the American colonies as one of the three delegates from New Jersey, but resigned over procedural differences, causing him to be accused of loyalist sympathies. In the next decade he and his family were active in the Revolutionary cause. In 1776 he was chairman of the Elizabethtown Committee of Safety, and his son Matthias was colonel of the 1st New Jersey Regiment.
