The first services in what came to be known as the Stone House Plains (now Bloomfield, New Jersey) Dutch Reformed Church were held in a barn in 1795, and became incorporated in 1801 with Peter Stryker (1763-1847) as its first pastor. The first church building was erected at 10 Bellevue Avenue the following year. Eventually, the church changed its name to the Brookdale Reformed Church. After a fire destroyed the original structure, a larger church similar to the original was constructed, which still stands.
This collection contains a manuscript copy of the register of the Stone House Plains Dutch Reformed Church, recording the births, baptisms, deaths, and marriages within the congregation spanning the years 1801 to 1901. Additionally, a transcript of the manuscript copy is included in the collection. An index of names appearing in the register compiled circa 1901 completes the collection. Another transcript without the index is bound in a single volume, and is separate from the collection.
