James Grover

M, b. Jul 1611, d. before 28 Dec 1685
      James Grover was born in Jul-1611 at Chesham, Buckinghamshire, England. He was born circa 1622 at Chesham, Buckinghamshire, England. James married Rebecca Cheesman circa 1639 at Gravesend, Kings County, New York. James Grover died before 28-Dec-1685 at Middletown, Monmouth County, New Jersey.
      The information regarding the Grover family was obtained from Hist.and Geneat. Miscellany by Stillwell, pp.246-278, Vol. 4, Grovers ofMonmouth County, N.J. We have been unable to find, with assurance, anyhistory of this family in England, but we are sure that the Groverswere English, and that James Grover, first member of the Grover familyto settle in America, was loyal to the English Crown.

James Grover, the founder of the Monmouth County families was one ofthose brave adventurous spirits, of whose history, prior to coming toGravesend, Long Island, at its first settlement, we know little ornothing. The first positive knowledge of James Grover is the grantingto him, Feb. 20, 1646 (Nov. 12, 1646, says T.G. Bergenm, Esq.) in thefirst division of Gravesend lands, a house, lot and farm of 20 acres.

On March 9, 1655, with James Hubbard and George Baxter, he proclaimedthe republic of England and repudiated the Dutch Government, atGravesend, but managed to escape when they were arrested on a chargeof treason, although his hands hoisted the English flag there. Thatwas an important historical event and was of great value to theColonies later. He went to Boston thence to England, but, in 1657reappeared at Gravesend, bringing with him a letter from the Proctor,Oliver Cromwell, addressed to the English inhabitants of Long Island,which he afterward presented to the Magistrates of Gravesend "to beopened and read"; but the Director Stuyvesant had been informed of it,and he, August 24, 1657, addressed a letter to the "Honorable, DearFaithful, the Schont and Magistrates of the Village of Gravesend"countermanding the substance of said letter and requesting that Groverand his letter to be sent to Peter Stuyvesant, Director and Council ofNew Netherlands. James Grover considered it unwise to appear beforeStuyvesant and prudently made his escape, leaving the letter with theMagistrates.

James Grover's farm was on the S-E portion of the town, and, in 1657,he had six acres under cultivation. He must have been protected by theMagistrates and people of Gravesend, although he was an open enemy tothe Dutch Government.

About this time (1663) some of the people of Gravesend decided toemigrate, and a number of them went in search of a place to settle.Stuyvesant heard of it and sent a vessel in pursuit of the party. Theparty had an eventful trip but was not overtaken.

1666-7 James Grover sold his farm in Gravesend, and went to EastJersey, where he was one of the first settlers in Middletown where,December 30, 1667, he had a town lot assigned to him and was deputedto "survey the land that is to be laid out in lots". 1668, JamesGrover was town clerk of Middletown and December 16, 1668, he made anagreement with the Town to lay out the meadows into town lots for onepound of merchantable blade tobacco for each acre.

Jan. 4, 1669, James Grover recorded his "earmark" for his cattlerunning at large.

Dec. 25, 1669, made an agreement with Town of Middletown, in legalTown Meeting to operate his flour mill in accordance with certainspecifications.

1667-8, he was the first Town Clerk of Middleton.

1668, he was one of the founders of the Baptist Church of Middletown.

1673, he was millwright employed by Governor Lovelace of New York inthe erection of a mill on Staten Island.

1673 (August 8, 1674), he was chosen as the Commissioner to consultupon terms of surrender, with the Dutch at Fort Orange.

1667-8, Feb. 27. James Grover of Middletown subscribed to the "Oath ofAllegeance".

1672. Commission granted to Mr. James Grover to be Lieutenant of afoot company in Middletown.

1675, March 13. A Commission granted for the County Court ofMiddletown and Shrewsbury, at which James Grover was to be anassociate.

1677, March 12. James Grover appointed Justice of the Peace, at Courtheld in Shrewsbury.
