About the year 1703 Col. Lewis Morris sent a memorial to England for a missionary to be sent to East Jersey, particularly to Shrewsbury. This memorial contained the following items relating to Middletown and Shrewsbury:

The population of New Jersey (East Jersey ?) is about 8,000. Freehold was settled by emigrants from Scotland. Mr. Keith (George), began the first settlement there and made a fine plantation. Onehalf of the people were Scotch Presbyterians. There is in town a Quaker meeting house but most of the Quakers had seceded with Keith. Shrewsbury, he says, was settled by emigrants from New England and New York. There is in it about thirty Quakers of both sexes and they have a meeting house."

Oldmixon in 1708 says :

Shrewsbury is the most southern town of the province and reckoned the chief town of the shire. It contains about 160 families; and 30,000 acres of out plantations belong to its division. There is a new town in the county called Freehold, which has not been laid out and inhabited long. It does uot contain as yet above forty families."
