Enslaved people were sold here in 1818 by Judge Van Wickle.

"In 1818, Judge Jacob Van Wickle, along with collaborators, sold some 100 people, including some free people [here]." This site was a part of his estate. This information and quoted content is from the New York Times Magazine, Feb. 16, 2020, at p. 50, in an article by Anne C. Bailey, with photographs by Dannielle Bowman. See https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/02/12/magazine/1619-project-slave-auction-sites.html.

This appears to be the same Jacob Van Wickle who owned a pottery noted at https://www.roadsidehistoricalmarkers.com/location/item/1200-bissett-pottery-was-here-circa-1878/trendy_address=wickle?rid=113.

There is a bit about Van Wickle on the Web, for ex., look at https://www.google.com/search?q=%22An+Abominable+Business%3A+The+New+Jersey+Slave+Trade&rlz=1C1GCEB_enUS860US860&oq=%22An+Abominable+Business%3A+The+New+Jersey+Slave+Trade&aqs=chrome..69i57.471j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8.
