"List of Loyalists that had their real property confiscated by the state
of New Jersey in the years 1777 thru 1784. All properties located in
Sussex county. The list was compiled by William Gaston, an official of
the state of New Jersey who was the overseer for land confiscation
The above names are not in alphabetical order but were put down in
the same order as they are listed in William Gaston's Ledger. Gaston
listed all claims under the individual names of the Loyalists that lost
their property, noting the claimants name and the amounts due him. The
value of the property is also listed and whether there were sufficient
monies available to satisfy the debt owed. In most cases the demands
were met. Two hundred and fifty names are indicated on the list, of
that number only twelve are from Sussex county, the majority seem to be
from Monmouth, Middlesex and Essex. All New Jersey counties are
represented. I put down the original townships where these men resided,
in the period the ledger covers. The reason for my doing so was to
illustrate how prevalent Absentee Landlordism was in those days and to
show great tracts of land were held for speculative purposes. The
original ledger is in the Archives of the New Jersey State Library,
Trenton. - Theodore V. Brush, April 12, 197?, Lakewood, NJ"
