Sharp <sharprm@@sbcglobal.net> George Corlies emigrated prior to 1680 to the New World, settling in Monmouth County, New Jersey. He may have been among the founders of Shrewsbury. The earliest record-evidence of his life there is in the return of a survey for some eighty acres of land . . bearing a date 15 May 1680. He was in fellowship with the Friends and in membership with the Shrewsbury Meeting. He was an overseer and a frequent delegate from this meeting to other meetings. The land he acquired by patent in 1680 he added to by purchasing land in 1698 from William Shattock and 170 acres from Thomas Hillborn in 1703. All the land was in Rumson Neck, between Navesink and Shrewsbury Rivers. He married Exercise Shattock at her father's house in Shrewsbury. He married Deborah Hance at the Friends Meetinghouse in Shrewsbury. He was a shoemaker by trade. Shortly before his death, George Corlies, in April, 1715, made a deed of gift of certain tracts of upland and meadow to his second son William, the land being described as lying along Cole's Brook, and part of that patented to Thomas Hillborn, 24 May, 1694, and sold by him to George Corlies in 1703. William made over a portion of this land to his youngest half-brother Jacob Corlies on May 7, 1737.
