Thomas Potts' ledger, covering a period from 1727 to 1741, is in possession of the New Jersey Historical Society.
On trip to Burlington in 1733, he probably liked it better, so he sold the land in Stratfield in 1734 and moved his family down there.
Original owner of Lot 7 in Block 1191 in Wilmington, Delaware. Sold to Robert Field by 1746. Deed E-2-610. Why he had this land is a mystery.
