Excerpt from History of Monmouth County, New Jersey, 1664-1920, Vol. 2: Historical, Biographical, Illustrated Upper Freehold is in the extreme southwestern portion of the county, Millstone being the only township which adjoins it, and forms its northern and northeastern boundary. The other bounds are: On the southeast, Ocean county; on the southwest, Burlington county; on the northwest, Mercer county. The streams all ﬂow in a general north westerly direction, the largest of these being Crosswicks creek, which with its tributary, Lahaway creek, ﬂows across the southwestern corner of the township. Doctor creek runs through the central part and amtes with Indian creek, forming part of the northwestern boundary between Mercer county. Assanpink creek marks a part of the northern boundary between Millstone township. The Pemberton and Hightstown railroad (now operated by the Pennsylvania system) traverses the township from north to south. The original formation of the township is not on record, but it is known that it was laid out prior to 1731. An assessment roll of the township for that year is in existence, showing that it was one of the four original townships, the collector being John Lawrence, who was the township assessor for years, the surveyor-general who in 1743 ran the line since known as the Lawrence Line, between the Provinces of East and West Jersey.
