Regarding the area history, the first settlers of the land where East Hanover now stands were the Lenni Lenape Indians. Meaning "original people," the Lenni Lenape were divided into three sub-tribes that occupied the length of what we now know as New Jersey. The Unami, meaning the people down the river, occupied the land now known as East Hanover.
The Unami’s existence in the area was disturbed when the Europeans landed in their "New World" in the late 1600s. Since the creation of Hanover Township in 1720, its size has been considerably decreased as the population of the area has increased. Originally encompassing Morris County and parts of both Sussex and Warren County, Hanover Township became too unwieldy for a single local government as time passed.
East Hanover as formed as a township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature in 1928 from portions of Hanover Township. East Hanover is defined by the joining of two rivers, the Whippany River to the west and north and the Passaic River to the east and north. This geographic effect led to the early name of East Hanover, "Hanover Neck."
The name Hanover came from the House of Hanover in Germany. This namesake was given to the Hanover Township in 1720 as a sign of respect to King George I of the House of Hanover, the British king who ruled over the American colonies in the 18th century.
