Biographical Note

JAMES PARKER (1725-1797) James Parker (1725-1797), the son of Janet Johnstone (d.1741) and John Parker (1693-1732), served in the colonial military as a young man. Some time after 1746, he left the army and partnered with Beverly Robinson and Andrew Johnston in a mercantile business. The company traded with the West Indies and in 1750-1751, Parker traveled to Jamaica for business reasons. Soon after this trip he settled in Perth Amboy, New Jersey to manage the family estate, which included the mansion known as "The Castle." He married Gertrude Skinner (d.1811), the sister of Cortlandt Skinner (1727-1799), and with her started a family.

Parker served in a number of different capacities throughout his lifetime. He was an agent for the East Jersey Proprietors; an agent for the Hunterdon and Sussex County properties of Sir Robert Barker, an absentee landlord; a lawyer; a councilor under Governor William Franklin (1764-1775); and mayor of Perth Amboy (1771). In 1775, he declined the appointment as one of Perth Amboy's delegates to the Provincial Congress, choosing instead to stay neutral during the escalating conflict. Though he had loyalist connections and sympathies, he remained neutral and moved his family to the farm he called "Shipley" in Bethlehem (now Union), Hunterdon County, New Jersey. In November of 1777, James Parker and two others were taken as loyalist hostages to ensure the safety of patriot captives. Parker was soon allowed to return to his family at "Shipley," where they remained until the end of the war. In 1783, the Parkers moved to New Brunswick, New Jersey for two years before returning to the family home in Perth Amboy. James Parker died on October 4, 1797, leaving his son, James (1776-1868), to manage the remaining family lands.

JOHN PARKER (1729-1762) John Parker (1729-1762), James' younger brother, served for five years (1745-1750) as a midshipman on board the British vessel Chester, and soon after sailed to Jamaica, Virginia, and Newfoundland. He then earned the rank of colonel through his service in the campaigns against the French in 1755 and 1756, and at Fort William Henry in 1757. In 1761, he was taken prisoner at Martinico, where he died on February 15th of the following year. John Parker never married.

JAMES PARKER (1766-1868) James Parker (1776-1868), son of Gertrude Skinner and James Parker (1725-1797), was born on March 3, 1776 in Bethlehem Township. He graduated from Columbia College in 1793, and was elected to the New Jersey Assembly in 1806. During his lifetime, James Parker was a director of the Delaware and Raritan Canal Company, a United States Representative, a member on the board of trustees for Rutgers College, a business executive, a philanthropist, and a president of the New Jersey Historical Society.

CORTLANDT PARKER (1818-1907) Cortlandt Parker (1818-1907) was a prominent Newark lawyer and active in Whig (later Republican) politics.
