“Warwick in History” – April 29, 1703, begins the history of Warwick when Queen Anne of England granted John Bridges and eleven other land speculators a tract of approximately 150,000 acres in the County of Orange and the Province of New York. John Bridges, doctor of laws, had petitioned for the grant.
The grant was recorded in Haverstraw, New York. Royal patents played an important role in the settling of new York State. The earliest land grants were not only very large but were vague as to boundary.
