Question
Who were the first 3 settlers of New Jersey? And any other useful info regarding this.

Answer
If you are looking for the names of three specific people, I'm not sure there is a record of that.  I suspect you mean which European countries first established settlements in what is today NJ.  In that case, the answer is Finland, Sweden, and the Netherlands.
