Arent was a surveyor trader who was also a land speculator. In 1694, the British sent him to northwestern New Jersey to investigate rumors about French attempts to incite local Lenape Native Americans to revolt against them. He discovered a fertile valley in the river where Lenape had grown crops, but he found no evidence of rebellion. Schuyler made his findings known to the British, and convinced Major Anthony Brockholst as well as Samuel Bayard, to invest in the Pompton Valley. Schuyler was chosen by the group to be their negotiator. He would negotiate with the East Jersey Company who is the owner of land rights from the King in England. The group purchased 5,000 acres (20km2) and built the Schuyler–Colfax House.
