Family History

The Ford Family's history in North America dates back to Andrew Ford's emigration from England to Weymouth, Massachusetts in the 1640s, a community that he helped found before acquiring property in Plymouth colony with his wife, Ellinor Lovell. The first Fords to live in Morris Count, New Jersey were Andrew's grandson, John Ford, and his wife Elizabeth Freeman, who owned a large parcel of land two miles east of Morristown. John Ford built one of Morris County's first iron forges with John Budd

Subsequent Ford descendants owned large tracts of land in Morris County where they operated farms, iron forges, served as members of the clergy, fought in colonial and Revolutionary wars, and worked as land surveyors, school administrators and teachers, medical missionaries, nurses, and bankers. The Fords maintained connections to the Garden State for three centuries.

Mr. Ford moved back to Fordville (now known as Whippany) in 1952 and resided there until he was moved to the Holly Manor Nursing Home, Mendham, New Jersey on April 11, 1980. Edwin was the son of Edwin Pierson Ford and Louise-Chapin Shepard Ford.

Mr. Ford graduated from Princeton with a Litt. B. in 1913 and studied at the Episcopal Theological School, Cambridge, Massachusetts. from 1916 to 1919. He was an Episcopal clergyman at churches in Hamburg and Sparta, New Jersey. Known as Father Ford, he was greatly interested in local history and in his family lineage.

Scope and Content of the Records

The Ford Papers (1693-1979) document the personal lives of a prominent Morris County family. A diversity of interests and activities of the Ford family and related families are reflected by the materials found in the collection. Most of the collection involves the Ford family itself (especially the Rev. Edwin Shephard Ford) spanning the period from the late seventeenth-century to contemporary times. It documents the genealogical history of the Ford family as well as various events and activities of individual family members. The latter includes major events and daily activities.

Types of materials in the manuscript collection consist of genealogical, family, and bible records, correspondences (personal letters), notes, deeds, ephemera, printed materials (guides, pamphlets, and maps), newspaper clippings, wills and testaments, estate records, and other items. Many of the individual Ford Family papers are comprehensive and well-organized. Examples of these are Abigail (Abby) Condict Ford, Alfred Ford, Demas Ford, Rev. Edwin S. Ford, Rev. Henry Ford, and Samuel Ford, Jr.

Another portion of the collection contains manuscript materials of Ford-related families spanning the years 1741 to 1978. Their content is very similar to that of the Ford Family papers. Much of the Ford-related family papers give a broad overview and do not necessarily reflect specific events in the people's activities. Examples of these are Darcy, Byram, Cutler, Smith, and Vail.

Arrangement of the Records

The Ford Family Papers are arranged in four series: I. Ford Family Papers, II. Rev. Edwin Shephard Ford, III. Ford-Related Families, and IV. Photographs.

Each series is arranged by file in alphabetical name order. The content of each folder is arranged chronologically. The first series consists of Ford Family members. One folder is arranged by geographical location (see file "Fords of Huntsville, Ala."). Two other files for general information on the Fords are arranged at the end of the series by the name "Ford" only. The papers of Sarah Elizabeth Ford are found in folders labelled "Elizabeth (Libbie) Ford" and "S.E. Ford."

In many cases, files contain papers that were formulated about individual family members after their deaths. See files for "Alfred Ford", "Demas Ford", "Rev. Henry Ford", "Jacob Ford", "John Ford (1722-1970)", “Jonathan Ford (1779-1979)”, “Samuel Ford", and "Samuel Ford, Jr." Series II is established for the assumed creator of the collection, Edwin S. Ford, covering most of his lifespan (1889-1982). The first six years and last seven years of his life are not documented in the subseries.

The third series consists of Ford related family members that are arranged either by individual or family name. Only the last file is not arranged alphabetically because it includes unsorted papers. There are a number of unsorted letters that cannot be defined by name since the recipient is difficult to identify.

Of special interest in Series I are the Bloomfield Female Seminary print of "Abigail (Abby) Condict Ford (1845-62)", Morris Orphans Court print of "Demas Ford", Watercolor of the Fox Powder Mill of "Jacob Ford", First Presbyterian Church program and printed materials on the counterfeiting activities of "Samuel Fordy, Jr.", and the muster roll of "Jonathan Ford (1779-1979).”

Ford, 1895-1973")''Minutes of Meetings of Father Ford (see file for "Edwin Shephard Ford, 1907-60"), and the National Park Service literature (see file for "Edwin S, Ford, 1958-75").
