when tardiness became too prevalent a compromise was
hit upon whereby the teacher was to hang out a red
shawl at ten minutes of one. What good games of
"shinney" and bantry and "snap-the-whip" did that old
shawl end.

In the house beyond the school, at present occupied
by Bloomfield Howland, lived Simeon Brown, a man
who was evidently very proud of his fine handwriting.



BLOOMFIELD, OLD AND NEW 183

The Rev. Joseph F. Folsom of Newark picked up an
old book in a local bookstore one day last year. It was
"A Treatise on the Jurisdiction and Proceedings of
Justices of the Peace in Civil Suits in New Jersey"
(Simeon, by the way, was Justice of the Peace), printed
in Burlington in 1813. These were the stanzas he found
in the book, both written out "plain" and "neat" :

This is my Book, as you may Know,
By Letters Plain I will it Show:
The first is S., a Letter Bright,
The next is B., in all men's Sight:
And if you chance to read amiss,
Look under neat and there it is.

Simeon Beown.
December 9, 1816.

Simeon Brown is my Name,
Stone House Plains is my station.
Heaven is my Dwelling Place,
And Christ is my salvation;
When I am Dead and in my Grave^
And all my Bones are Rotten,
This you may see to Remember me,
That I am not Forgotten.

December 9, 1816.



BOARD OF TRADE CENTENNIAL RESOLUTION

At the last meeting of the executive committee of the Board
of Trade a sub-committee was appointed to obtain information
concerning the setting off of the township of Bloomiield from
the township of Newark in 1815, with instructions to report to
the executive committee at this meeting. In accordance with those
instructions the committee submits the following report:

Newark was settled by some thirty families of Puritans who
came from Connecticut in May, 1666. The arrangements for the
settlement were made with the representative of the Lord Pro-
prietors of New Jersey, Lord John Berkely and Sir George
Carteret, to whom the province had been granted by James, Duke
of York. After some trouble with the Indians a purchase was
made from them which included the territory afterward known
as Bloomfield, and this latter territory M'as gradually settled by
farmers from the Newark settlement and by the Dutch who came
in from Bergen County on the northeast.

For one hundred and forty years there were no subdivisions of
Newark, but in 1806 three wards were established known as the
Newark Ward, Orange Ward and Bloomfield Ward. This division
determined the southern boundary of Bloomfield.

On January 24, 1812, the Council and General Assembly of
New Jersey passed an act setting off a new township from the
township of Newark and incorporated it by the name of "The
Inhabitants of the township of Bloomfield in the county of
Essex." The act provided, however, that it should not be in force
until the fourth Monday of March (March 23), 1812. That day,
therefore, was the beginning of Bloomfield as a municipality, and
three weeks later the first town meeting was held at the house of
Isaac Ward. Unfortunately, all records of the early meetings of
the township have been lost, the only old record in the office of
the town clerk being a cash book which was started in 1812. A
copy of the act setting off Bloomfield from Newark is annexed
to tiiis report.

The area of the original township of Bloomfield was about
twenty and a half square miles, and it was bounded on the north
by the Passaic County line; on the east by the Passaic River;
on the south by the townships of Newark and Orange, and on the
west by the crest of First Mountain. This district included the
present municipalities of Bloomfield, Glen Ridge, Montclair,
Nutley and Belleville, and a part of what is now the Forest Hill
and Woodside section of Newark. In 1820 this territory had a
population of 3,085,

BLOOMFIELD, OLD AND NEW 185

Although Bloomfield had no separate existence until 1812, the
name had been adopted some years earlier. The Presbyterian
Church was started in 1794, and in 1796 the congregation wor-
shiping in the Joseph Davis house on Franklin Street, adopted
the name of Bloomfield for their community, and for the church
which was organized in that year. When the edifice at the head
of the Green was erected, a tablet with the inscription "Bloom-
field 1796" was placed in the tower.

The name was taken in honor of General Joseph Bloomfield,
who was a distinguished citizen of New Jersey. General Bloom-
field had served in the War of the Revolution as a captain, and
afterward major of New Jersey regulars from 1775 to 1778.
From 1783 to 1788 he was Attorney-General of New Jersey, and
in 1794 was a brigadier-general of New Jersey militia, command-
ing troops during the "Whiskey Rebellion." From 1801 to 1802
and 1803 to 1812, he was Governor of New Jersey, and ex-officio
Chancellor of the State. Governor Bloomfield relinquished his
oflBce on March 27, 1812, four days after the township of Bloom-
field was formed, to become a brigadier-general of regulars in
the United States Army, commanding the third military district
with headquarters at New York City. After the War of 1812
was over he rounded out his career as a representative from New
Jersey in the Congress of the United States. It is evident that
when the members of the old First Church were choosing a name
for their community in 1796, they settled upon a man whose later
achievements fully confirmed their estimate of him. Bloomfield
may well be proud of its name.

This committee believes that Bloomfield's centennial should be
celebrated next year in a suitable manner, and that such a cele-
bration will be of great benefit to the town. The Board of
Trade is unquestionably the proper body to undertake this work,
and the committee recommends that steps be taken in the near
future to bring the matter to the attention of the Board of
Trade and the people of Bloomfield with this end in view.
