New Brunswick is named for the city of Braunschweig, in state of Lower Saxony, in Germany. Braunschweig was an influential and powerful city in the Hanseatic League, later in the Holy Roman Empire, and was an administrative seat for the Duchy (and later Principality) of Hanover. Shortly after the first settlement of New Brunswick in colonial New Jersey, George, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg, and Elector of Hanover, of the House of Hanover (also known as the House of Brunswick), became King George I of Great Britain (1660-1727). Before receiving its present name in 1714, New Brunswick was known as Prigmore's Swamp and Inian's Ferry. It is likely that New Brunswick was named for the city of Braunschweig in honour of the newly crowned monarch.
