In 1662, English "heritics" from Connecticut were then settling in Nieuw Nederland. 3. Francis Redstreak (1765-1840), md. Hezekiah Lampson (1763-1811), daughter of Matthias Lampson (1705-1773) and granddaughter of Thomas Lampson, who arrived in Salem before 1690. Francis and Hezekiah had 2 children. 5.

Peter Van Horn, a Tory supporter of King George. They took John Redstreake (1769-1825) to England "for an education." His older brother, Francis was left with his grandfather, John Brick in Cohansey, NJ.

In a document which is impossible to read with 100% accuracy it appears that Jonathan Borden purchased property in the Township of Chester in Burlington County, in 1732. A survey was subsequently made. John Boulby held the original warrant for 4,900 acres. In 1693, part was conveyed to Thomas Hooten (?) a merchant, of Philadelphia-500 acres on the SW side of Northampton River and 100 acres joining the same for a total of 600 acres. The land was conveyed by a succession of land owners, until the 600 acres were purchased by Francis Hogsett, on 20 January 1723. In June of 1723, James Dunlap purchased 292 acres. That tract James and his wife Elizabeth Dunlap, [WJD H:144] of Salem County, on 1 March 1734, conveyed to Samuel Stokes, the son of Joseph Stokes, of Chester in Burlington County. The description of the 292 acres mentions joining land of Jonathan Borden, Joseph Hollinshead, Thomas Hackney, and Samuel Atkinson. In the last part it read "therefore I have caused the 43 acres to Jonathan Borden with .....of the James......of 43 acres and is hereby conveyed to the said Jonathan Borden" it was dated 5 July 1737.
[Survey Book B:183]

I found this reference to the Dunlaps when researching the Borden family.
