What new colony was made up of lands that the duke of york gave to friends?

New Jersey In the 1660's England had a lot of colonies in America. But King Charles II wanted another one. He gave the New Netherlands to his brother James, the Duke of York. But there was one problem, the Dutch owned the New Netherlands. In May of 1664, he sent warships to the New Netherlands. The Dutch people surrendered without a fight. In 1664 James gave part of New York to two friends, Sir George Carteret and John Berkeley. So James named the new colony New Jersey. They were the proprietors. They charged the settlers who moved onto their land. To get colonists to move to New Jersey the proprietors offered cheap land and freedom of religion. Many settlers came to New Jersey. In 1672 the Dutch reclaimed New Jersey and the English couldn't get it back till 1674. In 1674 John Berkeley sold his part of New Jersey to two Quakers. The Quakers were a religious group that was a part of England, and many Quakers wanted to move to America. New Jersey was divided into East Jersey and West Jersey. The Quakers moved into West Jersey. Then Sir Carteret's widow sold West Jersey to twenty-four English, Irish, and Scottish men. Most of them were Quakers. Neither East nor West Jersey was very successful. In 1702 they joined together and made a royal colony ruled by the king of England.
