1747, Bill in suit of John, Earl of Stair and others v. B. Bond in Chancery
A Bill in the Chancery of New Jersey regarding the suit of John Earl of Stair, and others, proprietors of the Eastern Division of New Jersey, against
Benjamin Bond and other persons of Elizabethtown, known as the Clinker Lot Right Men. Included were maps, found after page 124, as well as the
publication of the Council of Proprietors of East New Jersey and Mr. Nevill's speeches in the General Assembly concerning the riots in New Jersey and the
rioters' intent. Of note, the lawsuit was between the middle class "clinkers" (crafty fellows) and the proprietors, each claiming title to various
land in New Jersey. This document gave a good historical overview of the issues and was published in 1747 in New York. (Digitized from a microfilm copy
of title originally held by the American Antiquarian Society Library in Worcester, Massachusetts).
