  • Note:
    The minute book of the supreme court of NJ--commencing 1681, and now in the vaults of the office of the supreme court at Trenton--presents a curious trial of Daniel & Mordecai Howell in 1685 for shooting and carrying away the hogs of William Cooper. They were indicted, tried and convicted , the court sitting at Burlington, and were fined five pounds each. The trial, which was a protracted one, discloses the peculiar manner of our ancestors in conducting such cases. The identity of the porkers was the turning point in the case, as the ears had been cut off, and the marks destroyed. But when Daniel Cooper, son of William, testified to having seen a dead hog on the back of one of the defendants, before its ears were cut off, and identified it as one of his father's swine, there was no room for further doubt, and hence the conviction.

    In 1687, Daniel sold his Brother Mordecai 250 acres of land with the buildings on coopers' Creek, probably the farm on which their father deceased. In 1688 Daniel sold 100 acres of the homestead to Moses Lakin, bounded by the stream before named. In 1690, Daniel Howell sold 60 acres, part of the original tract, to Josiah Appleton, which joined other lands owned by John and Richard Appleton, at a place then called Apple-town.
    Event: Land 1691 nr Trenton, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
    Note: In the year 1691, Daniel removed from Cooper's creek to a new residence near Philadelphia which he called Hartsfield; and after a short stay at that place, he removed thence to "Stacy's Mills," at the falls of the Delaware, around which place now stands the city of Trenton.
