The Inventory of Lambert Dorland of SomersetCounty New Jersey 1772
I am happy to share the following with you.? When the New Jersey Archives redid
their Archives apparently some paperwork that had been missing was uncovered,
and in our case this is good news.
381-Letters of Administration were granted in like manner to John Van Lew on the
Estate of Lambert Dorland late of the County of Somerset, dec'd, for the usual
(hard word to read, but it was used consistently for all Letters of
Administration granted on the page) dated 19 Feb. 1882.
The Administration of Lambert Dorland had previously existed as did the
renounciation of John his eldest son, however, the Inventory listed in the New
Jersey Calendar of Wills was missing.? I decided I would give it one more shot,
as I ws having very good luck with the documents for other families I was
working on, so re-requested and I now have the Inventory.
