John Ladd's Manor House
1337 Lafayette Avenue, W. Deptford, New Jersey (mailing address in Woodbury)
built circa 1688-90 by John-1 LADD (see below)
Description: reputed to be the oldest brick house in Gloucester County, it has four chimneys; the main building was made of native brick
Names: Candor Hall, Howell Estate, Ladd's Castle, Colonial Manor
Listed on the New Jersey Historic Register

Brief History: In 1688 John Ladd, a surveyor of Philadelphia for William Penn, became the possessor of about 7,000 acres of heavily timbered land, fronting on the Delaware River, forming what was first called Cork's Cove, then Ladd's Cove. In later years this became known as Howell's Cove, and later Washington Park (see below). This area is frequently spoken of as the "Horse Shoe," and lies between Gloucester and Red Bank (or Eagles) Point. Shortly after the purchase of this tract of land, Ladd built the Manor House, "Candor Hall," (that exists on Lafayette Street in West Deptford). The main portion of this house was of brick made on the grounds, and flanked on either end by expansive wings: of hewn timber. The brick two-story portion is still standing on Lafayette Street in Colonial Manor, W. Deptford NJ [see description below].

From source # 9 below: "The old 'Candor Hall' consisted originally of what is now the back parlor and room above, of brick, and two wings built of hewn logs and shingled to the ground, with mansard or hip roof. At the end of the wing at the north side or end of the back parlor, stood also a large brick kitchen. What is now the front parlor and several steps higher than the back parlor, was built in the time of John Ladd, Jr. and was used for a sleeping room. The brick kitchen was torn down in 1825, and in 1843 when Benjamin P. Howell removed them from Philadelphia, the wooden wings were torn down and cellar and drain put in. The latter of which was a very necessary improvement owing to the fact that very much of this old farm land had to be reclaimed by expensive under-draining, from the swamps which at that time were very extensive…"

"The road, which was on the southwest boundary of old 'Candor Hall' farm, is called the Hessian Road from the fact that the Hessian Troops, variously estimated at from 1200 to 2000-under Col. Count Donop in their attack on Fort Mercer at Red Bank, October 22, 1777, marched along this road. They were significantly defeated by some 400 Americans, mostly Negroes and mulattoes, under Col. Christopher Green… the small stream that takes its rise in the meadow just back of the Old House, crossing Hessian Road and emptying into Woodbury Creek, was called Hessian Run from the fact that the retreating soldiers there slaked their thirst, and many were there found wounded and dead. On the west side of Hessian Road the embankment and ditch of the 'Deer Park' are still very distinctly visible. It embraced some 400 acres…the ditch being on the inner side, the wild deer could leap into the Park but could not leap out.

Regarding FANCY HILL or Howell Estate [another structure no longer in existence]
In addition, descendants of John Ladd, built a second mansion, "Fancy Hill," [built in 1805 by Col. Joshua Ladd Howell-4 in what is now Westville NJ]. In the late 1800's, William J. Thompson purchased this property, called the Howell Estate. This was a large beautiful lot of land along the Delaware River, extending inward to what is now Route 130, with on the north side. Here, Mr. Thompson built, "Washington Park," that was promoted as "The Greatest Pleasure Resort in The World." Washington Park opened on Memorial Day of 1895 amid much excitement and festivities. The Howell mansion ["Fancy Hill"] was then renovated to contain a cafe and restaurant. The second-floor dining room overlooked the two-story band pavilion that seated approximately 1,000 persons.

In 1909 fire destroyed most of the park, including the Howell mansion. Thompson rebuilt parts of it, but a second disastrous blaze in 1913 saw the demise of the famous recreation area. It was never rebuilt. A portion of this land was later owned by the United States Government, being purchased for an Immigrant Station for the Port of Philadelphia.

During World War I, the Woodbury Bag Loading Plant, which packaged powder for the army, was located on the site. In 1982 Texaco's Eagle Point Refinery in West Deptford marked the park location.

January 13, 2004 -- Sunoco, Inc. said today that it has closed its previously announced acquisition of the Eagle Point refinery in Westville, NJ from El Paso Corporation. The purchase price was $111 million plus certain assumed liabilities and $138 million for inventories at closing.

His sons, Samuel and Jonathan, had been previously provided for.

Immigration and Property: Arrived at Burlington, New Jersey in 1678, as a young man. some say at the age of 21. 1688, 500 acres at Cork Cove, above Red Bank was surveyed to John Ladd and others. [Cork Cove was located below Timber Creek--afterwards called Ladd's Cove, and also later as Howell's Cove.] In 1688, with Jonathan Wood and Samuel Toms, he purchased a large tract of land in Deptford Township, extending from the river on the west to the Salem Road and beyond on the east. Soon afterwards he purchased both Wood and Toms interests, and built a dwelling house for himself on the tract, where he resided until his death. In 1721 he purchased a tract of land adjoining one he already owned (in current day W. Deptford) along the river shore, where he established a fishery (at Ladd's Cove).
At his death, he was one of the largest holders of real estate in the colony. In his will he mentions property: 300 acres in Greenwich Township, near Stephen Jones'; 875 acres near Neshaning Creek in Amwell Township, Hunterdon Co; 300 acres called Raven Rock above the falls on or near the Delaware River, in Amwell Township, Hunterdon Co.; 506 acres near Mantoes Creek, Deptford Township, Gloucester Co., and 300 acres near Allmon Creek, Deptford Township.
Occupation/Biography: He was present at the general meeting of the proprietors of West Jersey in 1687 and helped to arrange the details of that council, although he was never a member of that body. At the first meeting of that council in 1688, he [for Col. John Alford of Boston] and himself signed a protest to Gov. William Burnett against the repeal of the law regarding the dividing line of East and West Jersey. He was one of the first jurors of the first court, 1686, when the court sat at Gloucester and also at Red Bank. He was a practical surveyor, and acted as deputy for the surveyor-general of the western division of the state. Tradition states he was employed by William Penn in laying out the city of Philadelphia. Penn reportedly offered John Ladd property amounting to about a square in the best portion of Philadelphia, or thirty pounds in consideration of his services as a surveyor. Ladd chose the money, upon which Penn reportedly said to him: "John, thou art a Ladd by name and also a lad by nature. Dost thou not perceive this will be a great city?" He was probably a member of the Society of Friends.
