The first permanent Huguenot settlement in New Jersey was made at Hackensack in 1677, with a second at Princeton a few years later. Following the revocation of the Edict of Nantes by Louis XIV in 1685, Huguenots settled widely throughout the colony. This work, prepared by the former treasurer of the Huguenot Society of New Jersey, contains thumbnail genealogical and biographical sketches of hundreds of early Huguenot families in the Garden State.
