  • Ephraim came with his father to Shrewsbury about 1685, and lived there and at Freehold. At the March 1695/96 term before the Monmouth County Court of Sessions he was indicted as the father of an illegitimate child of Mary Wainwright. It was an unusual case in that the jury found him guilty according to the evidence, but not guilty according to the law. The Court refused to accept this verdict and the jury later found "for plaintiff." The situation that prompted the unusual first verdict is not known. It may be that Ephraim had married Mary before the case came to trial and that she was the otherwise unknown mother of his first four children and died before 1703.
    In March 1696/97 Ephraim is described as "of Freehold." He later moved to the vicinity of Great Egg Harbor, and finally to Munmouth River (Alloways Creek), Salem Co. in 1703.
