In Liber B., Part 1, Book of Deeds, on file in the office o f the Secretary of State at Trenton, is found the record o f a deed dated May 24-25, 1682, from Edward Bylinge to "Rog er Parke of Hexham, county of Northumberland, England, yeom an," for 200 acres of land, to be laid out in "West Jersey. " On November 11, 1686, "Roger Parke, late of Hexham, now o f Crosswicks Creek," sold the above tract to John Watkins , of Middlehook.
NOTE: Roger Parke was living in Hexham prior to his immigra tion to America.
Sarah, daughter of Doctor Parke, married Thomas Schooley o f Crosswicks, Burlington County, who was doubtless the so n of Robert Schooley, a fellow passenger with Doctor Park e in the voyage from England to the land of their adoption . They came in the good ship "The Shield" in 1678, and wer e among the first European emigrants to be landed at Burlin gton, as no vessel had previously ventured so far up the De laware.
