Early New Jersey Land Records - Finding John Catlin

Using this free searchable database which indexes warrants and surveys of the proprietors of the provinces of East and West New Jersey and includes many of New Jersey's earliest extant land records, I was able to locate 18 land records that name our ancestor, John Catlin.
Two of which have him listed as the Grantee.

From here I can order copies of up to 5 records from this database by clicking the "Select" button next to each record. The selected records appear at the bottom of the page and an order form can be printed.
If only all records were this easily searched and ordered!
