(Source: Tax Lists of the City of New York, 1695-1699, New York Historical Society Collections, 1910, vol 43, p. 77) He was employed as a slave trader in 1698 by the owners of the ship Prophet Daniel bound from New York to the African coast. By 1702, he had established himself as a merchant ship-owner and was junior partner in an import firm which included Onziel Van Swieden in New York and Valentine Cruger in London. He was made a Freeman of New York Province, March 2, 1703, probably on the day of his marriage. (Source: "Burghers and Freemen of New York 1675-1699", New York Historical Society Collections, 1910, vol. 43, p 77) He soon established himself as one of the leading citizens of New York. He was elected Alderman of the Dock Ward in 1712 and held that position for 22 consecutive years. In 1739, he was appointed Mayor, and retained that position until his death on Aug 13, 1744. Beginning in 1740, he lived in the official Mayor's residence at the head of Broad Street. (Source: "John Cruger", Dictionary of American Biography, vol II, p 581- 582; Hamm, Marherita Arlina, Famous Families of New York, Vol 1, p 67-75) The accession of George I of the House of Hanover to the throne of England on October 20, 1714, and the end of the reign of the House of Stuart with the death of Queen Anne on August 1, 1714, was reflected in the Colony of the Province of New York by an act passed on July 5, 1715, by the General Assembly "for Naturalizing all Protestants of Foreign Birth now Inhabiting within this Colony." The Abjuration Oath swore allegiance to King George "Lawfull and Rightfull King" as against all claimants to the Crown in the name of the late King James. John Cruger of New York signed the Oath of Abjuration on March 20, 1715 and listed his occupation as merchant. (Tepper, Michael, New World Immigrants, 1980, vol I, page 453) John's wife, Maria died of hip disease, "aged 46 years, 6 months, 11 days". (Source: "Cruger Family Bible" (written in Dutch), New York Genealogical & Biographical Record, Vol. 6, p 74--80, 180-182) She is interred at Low Dutch Church, beside her mother and her daughter Saliger. There is no further information on Saliger. It is possible that Saliger was Maria's sister. (Source: Douglas Cruger, Portland, Maine) John Cruger's will, dated Sep 4, 1742, was not proved until July 3, 1784. He named his sons, Henry and John, and daughters, Anna, Sarah, and Rachel, as joint heirs. (Source: Abstracts of Wills, New York Historical Society Collections, vol 7, p 345; New York City Surrogate's Records, vol 37, p 60, Docket 3549) His obituary appeared in the New York weekly Post Boy, dated August 1744.

Notes: Family sailed on the ship de Trouw on 12 Feb. 1659 from Harlingen, Netherlands, where they had been farmers. The children were listed as being " 3/4 (9 mo.), 2, 3, 4, and 6 years of age" and came with him and his wife. It is thought that they settled in Flushing, New York, about 11 miles from New York. All the Flushing records were destroyed by the burning of the town clerk's house in 1789, however his name turns up on deeds and other instruments in the History of Harlem (by James Riker) dating back to 1685. He was residing in the town of Flushing in 1669, and two years later bought a mill in the neighboring town of Jamaica, NY from Benjamin Coe Prior to 1675 he and his family moved to Bergen, NJ where two of his sons were subsequently married. On 18 February, 1679 h ewas appointed one of the special COurt of Oyer and Terminer to be held at Bergen in Marchof 1679. [Winfield's History of Hudson County, p. 100] In 1681 he purchased land in Hackensack, and with his sons became some of the first settlers in that very ancient village. The acreage owned by him comprised most of present day [1999] Paramus,NJ One of his descendants, Hendrick Banta, and his wife Antie Demarest were builders of the "Church on the Green" in Hackensack, and the initials of both: HB and AD, may be seen in one of the heart-shaped stones that still are visible on the rebuilt church. There are no Bantas presently among its membership.
