Surveyor General Annual Report

from Surveyor General

The Council of Proprietors of West Jersey continued their rightful, longstanding tradition by holding the 330th annual meeting on Tuesday, May 1, 2018. President Jeffrey Taylor, opened the meeting to discuss matters of the Council. The attendees included descendants of the original council members who held the seats dating back to Colonial and pre-revolutionary period. The Proprietors' charge was to purchase, grant and govern the survey of lands of West Jersey. Continuing the tradition to this day, the Council now operates as a non-profit. Recall in the June 6, 2017, Good Points article, the Dedication of Surveyor Generals Office of East Jersey to a Perth Amboy City Museum. The West Jersey Surveyors' General Office comes to life and spreads its heritage.
