Excerpt from Documents Relating to the Colonial History of the State of New Jersey, Vol. 22: Marriage Records, 1665-1800; Edited, With an Historical Introduction on the Early Marriage Laws of New Jersey, and the Precedents on Which They Were Founded This was in 1800 the only church within the present Hudson county. Bergen county had a number of churches in 1800, as follows: Hackensack, established in 1686; its marriage records are well kept and are given herewith. Schraalenburgh, 1724; printed here. Ponds (Oakland), 1710; records destroyed about 1880, by fire. Paramus, 1725; no marriage records have been preserved before 1800. English Neighborhood (now Leonia), 1770; no records prior to 1812. There were two or three Lutheran churches in the Saddle River valley, some of them dating well back toward 1700, and there may be early marriage records kept by their pastors, but the editor has not been able to find them. There was a French Reformed church near Hackensack before 1700, but its records are not known to exist. In Essex county there were these churches previous to 1800, in the chronological order given: First Presbyterian, of Newark, 1667; Reformed (Dutch), at Second River (Belleville), 1700; Orange Presbyterian, about 1719; Reformed (Dutch), at Fairfield, 1720; Trinity (Episcopal), of Newark, about 1743; Christ (Episcopal), Belleville, about 1755; Lyons Farms Baptist, 1769; Caldwell Presbyterian, about 1780; Bloomfield Presbyterian, 1798. The writer has been unable to discover any marriage records of these churches except the incomplete registers of the Belleville Reformed church, and those of the Lyons Farms Baptist church. All the records of the First Presbyterian church existing at the time of the Revolution are understood to have been lost or destroyed in that troublous period, and the writer has been informed that the church possesses no marriage records earlier than 180. The records of the Fairfield church are believed to have been destroyed in a fire which consumed the parsonage about 1875. The records of Trinity church in the eighteenth century were examined some years since by the writer, who found them to be very fragmentary, with no marriage registers among them. The session records of the First Presbyterian church of Orange are understood to have been destroyed by fire in 1802. Those in existence begin January 30, 1803.
