The first of the Lake family to arrive in America was John Lake and wife Ann Spicer, who came from Hertfordshire to Gravesend, New York. John Lake died there in 1696, wife Ann died about 1709. I have very little information about this first family. The had 8 children, as seen below, stayed mostly in New York. Son John Lake, Jr. and wife Neeltje came to New Jersey.

First Generation:

(1) Thomas Lake (c.1680 – 1765) & Jannetje/Jane Stryker (1679 – after 1765)

Thomas Lake, son of John Lake & Neeltje Claessen, married Jannetje Stryke, daughter of Garret Stryker and Wuntje Boomgard, in Kings County, New York, on June 1, 1709. The couple moved to Hunterdon County about 1725. They acquired a property of about 102.5 acres in Amwell Township.

In the late 1720s, Thomas Lake made many appearances in the Court of Common Pleas. He was listed as a Freeholder in Amwell Township in 1737, and in 1738 became a member of the New Jersey General Assembly, representing Hunterdon County. In 1750 he served on the Board of Chosen Freeholders for Hunterdon County.
