The Frelinghuysen family (/ˈfrlɪŋˌhsən/;[2] /ˈfrlɪŋˌhzən/;[3] /ˌfrlɪŋˈhsən/[4]) is an American political dynasty, primarily based in New Jersey, that first emigrated from Germany in 1720.

History[edit]

In 1720, Theodorus Jacobus Frelinghuysen came from Germany to the Raritan Valley in the Province of New Jersey, then a Royal Colony of Great Britain. He was an evangelizing Dutch-Reformed minister during the period of religious fervor known as the Great Awakening.[5]

Politics[edit]

Four Frelinghuysens served as United States senators, one of whom, Frederick T., became a Secretary of State under President Chester A. Arthur.
