    First Land Owners in New London Township, Henry County, Iowa
    First Land Owners in New London Township, Henry County, Iowa
    This list was published The History of New London, Iowa, by Margaret "Ruth" (DeLong) Peterson (published by The New London Journal on the occasion of the paper's centennial in 1975, Duane Griggs, editor; New London, Henry County, Iowa: composed and printed by The Hawk Eye; Burlington, Des Moines County, Iowa). Ruth wrote the following information about her source of the material:

    In the New London Journal of Speptember 19, 1935, there appeared a list of the first purchasers of land in New London Township, furnished by George Van Allen, at the request of the Journals editor, Ed Wessel. These records are still available at the [Henry County, Iowa] courthouse, written in the old books in a fine penmanship. Date of filing the ownership is 1840 unless otherwise indicated. It will be noted that land around New London and to the west and south was taken first, with much of the prairie land to the north remaining until the late 1840s.

    The following names that appeared in the list are in this database: William Anderson, David Brown, Jacob Burge, Ebenezer Dickey, Samuel Dickey, John Edgar (John Edger), Nathaniel Fox, William Hail (William Hale), William Hardin, Jackson King (Jonathan Jackson King), John King (Jonathan Jackson King), Frederick Lee, Hezekiah Lee, Jeremiah Lee, John Lee, Jacob Prickett, Isaac J. Redfern Isaac Redfearn, and John Calkins Sampson.
    The First Voters in New London Township, Henry County, Iowa, in 1840
    The First Voters in New London Township, Henry County, Iowa, in 1840
    The following text was transcribed from a 1975 centennial edition of the town of New London, Iowa's newspaper, The New London Journal. The article was originally written by Margaret "Ruth" (De Long) Peterson. This list is printed on page 30 of that edition:

    An 1840 list of voters in New London Township was published in The New London Journal, April 30, 1936. The information came from 1840 poll books owned by Beth Portlock (Mrs. William) Griffith. The Journal cautioned, "Many names are spelled incorrectly, since it is evident the clerk of election wrote the names as they sounded." The election was held October 5, 1840, to select a delegate to Congress, a Representative, and various county and local officials. There were seven precincts in Henry County for the 1840 election: Baltimore, Jefferson, Rome, Mt. Pleasant, New London, Crooked Creek ([includes the town of] Winfield - where only eight voted), and Salem. Voters in other precincts were listed in Journals of the spring and summer of 1936. The New London precinct election was held at the house of Moses Dray, who was the justice of the peace for the township.

    Those on the list who appear in this database include: David Brown, Frederick Lee, Hezekiah Lee, Isaaac Sampson, Isaac J. Redfern, Jacob Burge, Jacob Prickett, Jeremiah Lee, John Calkins Sampson, John Lee, John Sampson, Jonathan Jackson King, Nathaniel Fox, Porter Hale, William Anderson, William Hale, and William Hardin.
