Lands (6 acres) [field names and abutting] in common fields called March Field and Little Oaten Shott in Widdington." were fined for attending an illegal Friends Meeting and a deed declaring the uses of the fine was recorded. [1][2][3]
1676 On March 3, Benjamin Scott and other "proprieters, freeholders, and inhabitants of the said Province of West New Jersey", signed "In Testimony and Witness of our consent to and affirmation of these present laws, concessions and agreements" [for the government in New Jersey] [4][5]
1677 On April 3, John Kinsey, gentleman, late of Grand Hadham, Hertford Co, England deeded land for one-third share in West Jersey to Benjamin Scott, husbandman, of Weddington, Essex Co, England and to William Scott Jr, of same. [6] Benjamin Scott was a Signer of Concessions and Agreements and was commissioned to purchase land from the Indians in New Jersey.
1677 Benjamin Scott was sent by a company of Friends (Quakers) with 6 other men on the ship Kent from England. John Kinsey, reported to be Benjamin's father-in-law by some historians, was also on the ship. The commissioners first went to Sandy Hook, New York to to talk with Governor Andros and to inform him of their intent to establish a Quaker colony in West Jersey independent of the (Dutch) Duke's authority. The commissioners produced the bill of sale for the land and argued that they also had the right to self-government. The governor disagreed, but an accord was reached, with oversight by the governor.
1677 The ship Kent proceeded to the Delaware River in South Jersey and arrived at New Castle on 16 October. The Kent anchored at the mouth of Racoon Creek, which empties into the Delaware at Bridgeport opposite Chester. There was a small Swedish settlement there named New Stockholm. The Swedes helped the Quakers through the winter.
1677 The commissioners proceeded up the river in sailboats and rowboats to "Chygoes Islands" (where Burlington was established) to purchase land from the Indians with Henry Jacobson as interpreter. On 10 October, several Indian chiefs, including Okanishkon, conveyed land to the commissioners (including Benjamin Scott and Thomas Foulke): " for the lands from Rankokus Creeke to Sent Pinck at the ffalls Eastward from the uppermost head of Rancokus Creeke to the partition Lyne of Sir George Carteret against the uppermost head of Sent Pinck Creeke for the consideration of: 46 fathoms of duffelds, 30 blankets, 150 pounds of powder, 30 gunns, 30 kettles, 30 kettles more instead of wampum, 30 axes, 30 knives, 30 aules, 30 needles, 30 looking glasses, 30 pairs of stockings, 7 anchors of brandy or rum, 30 knives, 30 barrels of lead, 30 rings, 30 jews harps, 30 combs, 30 braselets, 30 bells, 30 tobacco toungs, or steeles, 30 pairs of sissors, 12 tobacco boxes, 30 fflints, 10 spoonfuls red paint, 100 of fish hooks, and grosse of tobacco pipes & 30 shirts to them paid".

[30]

Notes about their possible children are below:
Based on Quaker records and the Will of Benjamin Scott and Margaret's son John; Benjamin and Margaret only had three daughters: Bridget who married Edward Lucas Sr, Elizabeth who married Robert Lucas Jr and Margaret who married Thomas Lambert Jr. (not seen)
Benjamin Jr died before 10-3rd month-1701 - Hartfordshire England.
1695 Margaret Scott married 2-3rd month-1695 to Thomas Lambert brother of Hannah.
1700 Bridget Scott born circa 1679 married 3-3rd month-1700 to Edward Lucas.
1702 John Scott married 7-3rd month-1695 to Hannah Lambert - John wrote his will in 1702 naming his brother Martin and sisters Margaret, Elizabeth and Bridget among his other heirs. Martin was the surviving brother.
1702 Martin Scott wrote his will 19 Jun 1702. His will was proved on Nov 3, 1702.
1703 Elizabeth Scott born aboard ye ship "Henry and Ann" at Gravesend, Kent County, England 7-5th month-1681, Married 6-7th month-1703 to Robert Lucas Jr.
1705 Deed names three daughters as Margaret wife to Thomas Lambert and Bridgett wife to Edward Lucas and Elizabeth wife to Robert Lucas. [37]
1770 The will of Jane Scott, widow of Benjamin Scott (perhaps a grand-son), the elder was dated 23 April, 1770. [38]
Research Notes:
Many printed historical records report Margaret Kinsey to be Benjamin's wife. John Kinsey did deed land to the Scott family. However, I am not aware of any documentation showing his daughter to be married to Benjamin Scott. The website www.binghamassociation.com reports Benjamin Scott's wife to be Margaret Bingham.
Undocumented notes about other children: both Bridget and Elizabeth Scott were daughters of Margaret. An old Lucas manuscript, by Mrs. C. F. Fisher, states Elizabeth was the 9th sister of Bridget. Margaret who md. Thomas Lambert 11, and brothers John who md. Hannah Lambert, Martin, who never md., Benjamin 11 of Bishop, Herford, Hardforshire, who left a legacy to his sister Bridget Lucas, and possibly William, who probably died in childbirth. Apparently, some of the older Scott children had stayed in England. Benjamin Scott was originally from Weedington, Thaxton (sic Thaxted?), Essex Co. I "suspect" Margaret (Kinsey) died in childbirth with the son William. After Margaret (Kinsey) died, Benjamin Scott md. in 1682 Hannah Kemball/Kymball, widow of Thomas, daughter of John Chaffon, Gentleman. The manuscript by Mrs. Fisher states "this Scott is a proven Magna Carta line". I have not seen or found documentation for these notes.
Notes about Benjamin Scott: Some sources name Benjamin Scott of Barbados as the commissioner of New Jersey. See "The New Jersey Coast in Three Centuries", page 166-67. However, Burke [39] traces this Scott of Bretton family and the Benjamin Scott, baptized 1631, of Barbadoes did not settle in New Jersey.
Change Date: 13 SEP 2011 Note: The Essex county, England, records cited below demonstrate that Benjamin Scott was from Widdington, and that he and his wife had become Quakers by 1671, and that Bridget Bingham was his sister-in-law. Thanks to Donna Bingham Munger for publicizing those records.
John E. Pomfret in his article on the West Jersey Proprietors states that Benjamin Scott of Essex was one of the original ten West Jersey Commissioners, representing purchasers in the Second or London Tenth, and that he was among the seven commissioners who sailed there on the ship Kent in 1677. Benjamin Scott had purchased a third of a share, and so was not deemed a proprietor.
In his book Rev. Arthur S. Cole notes that Benjamin Scott was among the commissioners whose presence was recorded at Sandy Hook, New York, 4 August 4 1677 on the way to West Jersey. Cole also disproves the assertion that Benjamin Scott was from Barbados, as made in the book "New Jersey Coast in Three Centuries".
Benjamin Scott sailed from England twice, in 1677 on the 'Kent', and in 1681 on the 'Henry and Ann' with his wife and family and sister-in-law Bridget Bingham and her family. 1 2 3 Note: Essex Co. England Archives:

Abstracted by compiler. 5 Note: The list of Benjamin Scott's children can be constructed and proven by analysis of a body of deeds and wills:
A 1705 deed (WJD AAA:336-7, Davis p. 194) identifies Martin Scott's three sisters as Margaret wife to Thomas Lambert and Bridgett wife to Edward Lucas and Elizabeth wife to Robert Lucas.

The 1702 wills of John and Martin Scott (NJA 23:409-410) identify them as brothers, and brothers of the three sisters.
Two 1691 deeds (NJA 21:443, WJD B:342-3 & NJA 21:450, WJD B:397) identify John Scott as son of Benjamin Scott.

Thanks to Donna Bingham Munger for publicizing those records.
John E. Pomfret in his article on the West Jersey Proprietors states that Benjamin Scott of Essex was one of the original ten West Jersey Commissioners, representing purchasers in the Second or London Tenth, and that he was among the seven commissioners who sailed there on the ship Kent in 1677. Benjamin Scott had purchased a third of a share, and so was not deemed a proprietor.
In his book Rev. Arthur S. Cole notes that Benjamin Scott was among the commissioners whose presence was recorded at Sandy Hook, New York, 4 August 4 1677 on the way to West Jersey. Cole also disproves the assertion that Benjamin Scott was from Barbados, as made in the book "New Jersey Coast in Three Centuries".
Benjamin Scott sailed from England twice, in 1677 on the 'Kent', and in 1681 on the 'Henry and Ann' with his wife and family and sister-in-law Bridget Bingham and her family.3,4,5 Note: Essex Co. England Archives:
