1720 – James Alexander – Ireland
James Alexander, father of William Alexander (Lord Stirling) was a large landowner and had to deal with “squatters” on his land.

1720 – Cornelius Brees (Breese) – Staten Island, NY

So Pitney was actually a squatter on the land Brees purchased. Three members...

The Basking Ridge congregation was recognized by the first Presbytery in the U.S located in Philadelphia in 1729. The Trustees of the Presbyterian Congregation included James Pitney, Henry Rolfe (Newbury, MA) Mordecai McKeene, George Pack, Samuel Rolfe (Henry’s son), Daniel Morris, Thomas Riggs, and Obadiah Ayres (John’s son). That log cabin structure lasted until 1747 when a better structure was built. The Ayres lived in the area for over 100 years. The deed was not recorded until 1763. Building on John Ayrer’s donation, in 1728 John Budd of Philadelphia donated 100 acres to the Basking Ridge congregation (he was from Phia). for the continued use of the”meeting house”.
