Elizabeth is both the largest city and the county seat of Union County, in New Jersey. Elizabeth originally called “Elizabethtown” and part of the Elizabethtown Tract was founded in 1664 by English settlers. The town was not named for Queen Elizabeth I as many people may assume, but rather for Elizabeth, wife of Sir George Carteret, one of the two original Proprietors of the colony of New Jersey. She was the daughter of Philippe de Carteret II, 3rd Seigneur de Sark and Anne Dowse. The town served as the first capital of New Jersey.
