Corrections to Thomas Shourds’

History and genealogy
of Fenwick’s Colony

A Project of the Salem County Historical Society, Salem, NJ
Compiled by Glenn J. Bingham

You should read the explanation of the history and scope of the project, at least the first time through, to understand exactly what I present here. Then read the main document that attempts to correct many of the errors in Thomas Shourds’ account of the 70 or so earliest families of Salem County, New Jersey. You can find detailed information for the cited sources on the Sources/Bibliography Page.
