TOWNS

Proprietors, freeholders and settlers met in May of 1686 to approve the "Constitution of Gloucester County." The county seat (originally the City of Gloucester) was moved to Woodbury sometime around the Revolutionary War. The county size got smaller as first Atlantic County (1837), then Camden County (1844) were taken-off.
