The Dutch settlers in the Raritan Valley established a Reformed Dutch Church at Three Mile Run, about 1700-1703. Out of this grew the New Brunswick church, erected about 1714, and other churches, ministered unto by Rev. Theodorus Jacobus Frelinghuysen, 1720-1748; Rev. Johannes Leydt, 1748-1783; Rev. Jacob Rutsen Hardenbergh, pastor of the New Brunswick church, and President of Queen's (now Rutgers) College, 1786-1790; Rev. Ira Condict, 1793-1811.

The records of the church begin in 1717, and include somewhat scanty minutes of the Consistory, quite full lists of communicants and Consistories, and register of baptisms, from 1717 to date. The only marriage register known to exist begins with 1794, and was kept by Rev. Ira Condict.
