This is a partial Bellis Family Tree, designed to show the ancestors of David Bellis, owner of John Lequear’s farm in Raritan Township, as described in “The Old Lequear Farm.” I had attempted to design a tree that covered all the descendants of Andreas and Maria Bellis, but that proved impossible based on the information I have found so far. So I decided to publish this partial tree and perhaps get to the rest of the family as more information comes my way. Apologies to those whose relatives are missing.
Last week’s post concerned the farms owned by David Bellis on Hampton Corner Road in Raritan Township. One of them was originally the parsonage farm for the German Reformed Church in Ringoes. Around the corner was a farm known as “Township Farm” on the maps, and the subject of today’s article.
As I wrote in my previous post, the farm just east of the Swallow farm was owned by John Lequear in the 18th century. I was delighted to discover the location of his home farm.
