History & History Related Items

Englewood history:

n the early years of English ownership, many land grants and rights were assigned to encourage settlement. Because of this, many Dutch and French also settled the area along with the English. One of the Englishmen was Samuel Edsall who arrived in 1664. He began to buy and sell land in northern New Jersey. The area became known as "English Neighborhood" due to the many English settlers, though the Dutch still remained strong in the area.

The area began to prosper when the railroad was built from Jersey City to English Neighborhood. By 1858 it was desired to extend the line further north. John Van Brunt and Thomas W. Demarest, of this area, were the organizers for the Northern Railroad. One of the engineers invited his friend, J. Wyman Jones, to come along on an inspection trip. Jones was impressed with the area and felt it would expand once the railroad was completed extended. He began to buy up property rights in the area. He had a map drawn, named streets and finally registered Englewood on 15 August 1859. Most of the area was a part of the English Neighborhood known as Liberty Pole. Several residents got together to discuss a name. While several alternatives were tossed around, the original application name of Englewood. The origin of the name is now known for sure. Some say it was a variation on English Neighborhood. Others say it came from the local Engle family and woods of the hill section. Englewood began to incorporated in 1896, but the process was not completed until March of 1899.
