The "Garden State," New Jersey, was the property of Native Americans for more than 2,800 years. The Lenape lived along the coastal area. Later the Dutch and Swedes created the first European settlements there. The British gained control making it the Province of New Jersey. They gave control of it to Sir George Carteret and John Berkeley, First Baron Berkeley of Stratton. Carteret was born there.
The Channel Island of Jersey gave sanctuary to the King. Charles II of England was proclaimed King in the Royal Square of St. Helier, following the execution of his father, Charles I. After that, Charles II gave his brother, who became King James II, the area. James divided it up and gave the area between the Hudson and the Delaware to Baron Berkeley.
