Hi....John Cunditt (Condit) is first known in this country (America) in
was the purchaser of lands "in the bounds of the town of Newark,"
Essex County, N.J., in 1689 and 1691. This land was conveyed to him in
two deeds.the first from Richard Hore, dated February 27, 1689 and the
second is from Richard Lawrence, March 24, 1691.
From the Condit Book: John is known to be the ancestor of nearly all
the name of Condit or Condict in the U.S. Of his ancestry nothing is
known. Tradition says he came from England or Wales. If from either,
probable he was a native of the latter, as we learn from residents of
Province that there are those now living bearing the name "Conduit".
however, for believing that he may have been of English extraction, as
name has honorable mention in English history.
John Cunditt, of Norman descent, was married first in Great Britain,
wife died. He came to America in 1678, with his son Peter, and settled
Newark, N.J. where he married, second to Deborah, by whom he had a son,
John, who died a minor. There is also reason for the belief that
had a daughter by a former husband, nam4ed Mary, who married Captain
Morris, who died October 22, 1749, aged 83 yrs; she died Dec. 10, 1761,
aged 84 yrs., and her grave is in the Orange burying ground..John
died in 1713. Jo Ann
