The Sergeant family came to Delaware Township well before the Revolution. Outsiders can easily be identified by the way they pronounce the name—Sar-gent. It’s Sir-gent to those in the know.

Like all the other family trees published here, this is a work in progress. There are many members of this family that I do not have information about, especially those that left Hunterdon County. And some links to other family trees do not work because those trees have not yet been published.

Please add additions and/or corrections to the comments section, and I will take those into account.
