The Dutch and the Swedes were the first white settlers in the area that became New Jersey. When the British took over control of the colony, the King gave control of the colony to his brother, the Duke of York, who in turn gave the colony to his two friends, Lord Berkeley and Sir George Carteret. They allowed settlers religious and political freedom in the colony, so many different groups settled the area. The early religious groups were Anglican, Puritan, Quaker, and Calvinist.
