All of what is known today as Atlantic County was once called Egg Harbor Township, the eastern half of the original
County of Gloucester. Named as an official district as early as 1693, when the area was known as the province of
West Jersey, it was bounded on the north by the Little Egg Harbor River (now known as the Mullica River), and on
the south by the Great Egg Harbor River and its southern branch the Tuckahoe River. Its eastern boundary was the
Atlantic Ocean, but the western boundary in the South Jersey interior was not fixed until 1761
