Phyllis B. D'Autrechy's book More Records of Old Hunterdon County, Hunterdon County Historical Society, 1998. 

Amwell was called Kingwood after 1746. 

"Hunterdon Co. was formed in 1713/14 from Burlington Co.

In 1738 more land was annexed from Morris Co. At that time Hunterdon Co. had
the following townships:  Alexandria, Amwell, Bethlehem, Hopewell, Kingwood,
Lebanon, Maidenhead, Reading, Tewksbury and Trenton.

In 1838 Hopewell, Maidenhead and Trenton were taken to form Mercer Co.
Hunterdon Townships then were Alexandria, Bethlehem, Clinton, Delaware, East Amwell,
Franklin, Holland, Kingwood, Lebanon, Raritan, Readington, Tewksbury, Union,
and West Amwell."
 

Hubert G. Schmidt's "Rural Hunterdon", p. 30, 2nd P:

"... The name Amwell was adopted by the new township which was formed in the southern part of what is now Hunterdon County in 1708, and when Hunterdon County was set off from Burlington in 1713 Amwell Township became a township of the new county. "

bullet The Township of Union
bullet RAVEN ROCK Delaware Township. This settlement on SR 29 near the boundary of Kingwood Township and opposite Bull's Island, was part of a 300 acre tract which John Ladd owned in 1721. It was known as Saxtonville (when this was part of Amwell Township) being named for Nathaniel Saxton who purchased land here about 1812. Known also as Saxtons Vill in 1817, the longer version was in popular use at least until 1908.

bullet RESEARCHERS please be informed that The Hunterdon County Historical Society has sponsored the computerization of the oldest newspaper published in this county - The Hunterdon Gazette - which was published from 1825 to 1866. It is full of names and more names and stuff about our ancestors that you wouldn't believe unless you were able to read the originals. And now you may do so!

Please go to: http://www.rootsweb.com/~njhunter/ and view the Index. This contains the names of over 10,000 people who did something to get their name published in this newspaper. The Index covers the Years 1825 to 1844 which is the period computerized to date. We expect the years 1845 and 1846 to be added to the Index sometime during February. The project is still active but the process takes time so watch this Web site frequently.

bullet Sourland Mountains
"New Jersey's Sourland Mountain" by T. J. Luce.

In the book the mountain is described as "in west-central NJ roughly 17 miles long and 4 miles wide, running northwest from the Delaware River to a point just beyond the village of Neshanic. It is 50 miles equidistant from Philadelphia and New York and parallels a section of the metropolitan corridor stretching from Boston to Washington DC and yet despite suburban sprawl creeping along its flanks, which in recent years has threatened to turn into a gallop, it still retains much of its unspoiled character."
