I located a booklet "Genealogical Record of Mercer, Sutton and Cox Heirs to Their Ancestors' Estate" compiled by James V. Snyder, Harvey, ILL.There is no date in the booklet.It appears to be very old. This is NOT my family but feel someone may need this information:
Sir Geo. Crateret who married lady Elizabeth Stewart, daughter of Charles I (Stewart) and Henrietta Marie daughter of Henry IV of France and Marie Medici of Florence. Sir George and his wife had extensive territories given them by her brother, James Duke of York, (after James II.) which were ceded to him by his brother, Charles II. fully one-half of New Jersey, N.E. portion belonging to Carteret's wife.after Sir George's death she married William Larwrence.Carteret had a daughter Elizabeth who married Marquis Geo. Trembly an aristocratic French Huguenot, and had a daughter Johana who married Philip cox as second wife 1729.He was born 1681, son of Isaac Cox, brother of Dr. Daniel and Sarah (nee Sutton), daugher of Lord John Berkley and Mary Stewart, mother of William Prince of Orange (Holland) or William III of England.
Elizabeth married Marquis Geo. Trembley and had daugher Hannah who married Philip Cox, son of Isaac and Sarah who married a Sutton died no issue, then married Rev. David Sutton, a famous Baptist minister by whom there were seven or eight sons and three daughters.
(Marquis George Trembly is also described in the booklet as 'a French Huguenot of high family.')
Proof and tradition say, Hannah was an only daughter of John Trembly, a brother of George Trembly, and Mary only daughter of Peter Noe, also a French Huguenot of high family, and Margaret (nee Clark).He was wealthy and made a will to mary and her descendants.She also made a will.She then had married Philip Cox and by him had sons, Isaac, Daniel and John; died young from drinking from a poisoned spring.Philip then married Mariah's daughter hannah, by Trembly, and had three children, Isaac, hannah and Susanah.All married Suttons.
Children of Rev. David Sutton and Sarah Sutton, (a widow of a Sutton) who was daughter of George Trembly and his wife a daughter of Carteret and Elizabeth (nee Stewart).
The rich widow who married the third time William Lawrence, had one son or more by lawrence.The Province of Maryland was named in honor of Henrietta Marie Wife of Charles Stewart.
New Jersey was named in honor of the isle of Jersey, of which Sir Geo. Carteret was its governor.
Colonel Richard Townley and this widow who was Elizabeth Stewart Carteret had children.Charles (a Stewart name), Townley, Effingham Townley, Mary Catherine Townley married first Thomas Haryold, died in 1652, no issue.married second time William Bentley, had two children.Married third time John Mercer in New York 1696, born 1652.

John Mercer's genealogical ancestry. Had Four Children.
1st John Mercer, born 1652, married Mary Catherine Bentley, nee Townley.
2nd Moses Mercer, born 1654 had one child.
3rd Edward Mercer, born 1657, married a Trembly, a sister to Geo. and John Trembly. some say, no issue.
4th jane Mercer died single, no issue.
Among the old Sutton families, John Trembly was termed a duke.hannah or Johana that married Philip Cox, son of Isaac and Sarah, was a daugher of John trembly and wife.General tradition and all old descendants and those who talked with her only son Isaac Cox who died as late as 1837, over 100 years old, is that Hannah or Johana was only daughter of John Trembly and Mary only daughter of Peter Noe,and Margaret (nee Clark).
John trembly, a brother of George, also a wealthy Huguenot, as was Peter Noe.Peter Noe was born about 1650, wealthy, made a will as to disposition of his lands, and so did his daughter Mary who married Philip Cox, born 1681, as his first wife, had three sons, all died from accidental poisoning, no issue by them.
Isaac cox and Sarah, only child was Philip Cox, born 1681, married first Mrs. Mary Trembly, widow of John Trembly, about 1705 or 10.
Philip Cox married hannah Trembly, daughter of first wife by Trembly, 1730, the only heir of Peter Noe and Her mother Mary, a daughter of Geo. Carteret.Philip made a will and Anthony Cozant (someone has written over this name to spell it Cozad), his nephew, wa his executor.Hannah also made a will.
