H New Jersey Indian Villages, Towns and Settlements

A complete listing of all the Indian villages, towns and settlements as listed in Handbook of Americans North of Mexico.

Hespatingh. A village in 1657, probably belonging to the Unami Delawares, and apparently in N. New Jersey (Deed of 1657 in N. Y. Doc. Col. Hist., xiv, 393, 1883). A clue to the locality is given by Nelson (Inds. N. J., 124, 1894), who records Espatingh, or Ispatingh, as the name of a hill back of Bergen, or about Union Hill, in 1650.
