Gloucester Co., (Seal)

Introduction

Gloucester Co., (Seal)

     Gloucester County is a county located in the U.S. state of New Jersey. As of the 2010 Census, the population was 288,288. Its county seat is Woodbury.  The following counties lie adjacent to Gloucester: Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania – north; Camden County, New Jersey – northeast; Atlantic County, New Jersey – southeast; Cumberland County, New Jersey – south; Salem County, New Jersey – southwest; and New Castle County, Delaware – west.

     Swedesboro and Bridgeport, were the among the earliest European settlements in New Jersey as a part of the 17th century New Sweden colony. Gloucester dates back to May 26, 1686, when courts were established separate from those of Burlington. It was officially formed and its boundaries defined as part of West Jersey on May 17, 1694. Portions of Gloucester County were set off on February 7, 1837 to create Atlantic County, and on March 13, 1844 to create Camden County. The county was named for either the English city of Gloucester or Henry Stuart, Duke of Gloucester, brother of Charles II of England.   Woodbury, founded in 1683 by Henry Wood, is the oldest town in the county.  National Park, another town in the county, was the site of the Revolutionary War Battle of Red Bank (now included in a county park) where Fort Mercer once stood. Here can be seen the remains of the British ship Augusta (it is stored in a shed with windows for visitors to the park to look through to see the ship's pieces), which sank during the battle. During the colonial era, Gloucester County's main economic activity was agriculture. In Woodbury (even then the main town) was located the county courthouse, the county jail, a Quaker meeting house (still in existence), and an inn (on the current location of Woodbury Crossings). Because of the county's many creeks leading to the Delaware River and the Atlantic Ocean, smuggling was very common.

NAME / DESCRIPTION:   Monroe Township was originally formed as a township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 3, 1859, from portions of Washington Township, while the area was still part of Camden County. Monroe Township was shifted to Gloucester County on February 28, 1871, along with the majority of Washington Township. In 1950, portions of the township were transferred to Winslow Township in Camden County.   Victory Lakes and Williamstown are census-designated places and unincorporated areas located within Monroe Township.

Cross Keys - Coordinates/Map: 39°42′48″N 75°01′47″W

Cross Keys is an unincorporated area, within Monroe Township, in Gloucester County,  The area is north-west of Williamstown and east of Glassboro, about 15 miles south-south-east of downtown Philadelphia.  This com­mu­nity was the cen­ter of busi­ness and polit­i­cal activ­ity until Mon­roe Town­ship was formed. Six roads inter­sected here and aided in town­ship divi­sions. One of the ear­li­est sur­veys in the area was made in 1716 along the present Hurf­fville Road. One sixth of the area stayed in Mon­roe Town­ship and the rest went to Wash­ing­ton Town­ship. Farm­ing was the prin­ci­pal occu­pa­tion at that time. Few, if any of these orig­i­nal farms still exist. Its loca­tion on the stage route between Cam­den and Cape May added to its impor­tance. A tav­ern at the inter­sec­tion of the main roads still stands today as a pri­vate res­i­dence. A pio­neer gen­eral store was oper­ated in the “Keys” as was a black­smith shop which employed a tin­smith and a wheel­right. A saw mill in the area sold lum­ber for building.

     The Society of Friends were the first to set up reli­gious meet­ings at Cross Keys. Methodists fol­lowed close behind occu­py­ing the same build­ing vacated by the Friends which they used as a church and as a school. The Chest­nut Ridge site was served by preach­ers also serv­ing Squankum (Williamstown). In 1844 a Sun­day School was formed. In 1875 a new frame build­ing was erected as a church. In 1904 a tower and bell were ded­i­cated dur­ing the pas­torate of Rev. Fisler. Many improve­ments have been made since those early days to make way for growth and Chris­t­ian education.

NAME / DESCRIPTION: West Deptford Township was formed as a township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 1, 1871, from portions of Deptford Township. Portions of the township were taken to form National Park (April 15, 1902) and Westville (April 7, 1914). Colonial Manor is an unincorporated community in West Deptford Township. This place may have gotten its name because of the old colonial manor house named Ladd's Castle (also known as Candor Hall) that is said to be the oldest brick structure in Gloucester County.  This historic building at 1337 Lafayette Avenue in the Colonial Manor section of the township was built around 1688 by William Ladd, a surveyor who purportedly helped William Penn to plan out Philadelphia. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.

County boundary changes

Historical Changes in the Boundaries of this County

     Conducting genealogical research in the United States requires an understanding of county boundaries.  As the population grew more counties were created to meet the public’s need for localized governments.  This phenomena was common in all states during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.  As such you must be sure that you are not looking for records in the wrong county or state. 

     The web-site for the Atlas of Historical County Boundary Project provides interactive maps for all states. This Atlas is meant to be a resource for people seeking records of past events, and people trying to analyze, interpret and display county-based historical data like Land Records, Probate Records, Court Records, Tax Records, and Vital Records that document birth, death, and marriage.   Listed below are the boundary changes for this county, the dates they occurred, as well as the government statute that decreed the change.  To see actual changes in a mapping format follow this LINK to the Atlas of Historical County Boundary Project .

Our “Gen-Tool Kit” has been primarily designed for those researchers who may be traveling to this location to perform on-site studies of their family history, or to just visit some of the interesting historical sites located in the area.  It can be very satisfying to mix research with sightseeing at historical and scenic spots.  Such activity not only gives you an understanding of the land but a needed break from intense research sessions.  When visiting an ancestral county for genealogical research we’ve found that the three most important places to visit are the county courthouse; the county library; and the county historical and/or genealogical societies.  It is also good to plan ahead by contacting any site you intend visiting in order to ascertain where it is and when it will be open.  This is especially true with regard to historical and genealogical societies.  We hope that the following information will provide you with a better idea of what resources are available, within this county, to the family historian.
