The County of Sussex is the northernmost county in the State of New Jersey. Founded on 8 June 1753 by an order of Jonathan Belcher (1689-1757), Royal Governor of New Jersey (1747-1757) and his council, it originally contained all the land north and west of the Musconetcong River, including the area of the present-day Warren County (created from the southwestern half of Sussex County in 1824). At present, it is the fourth largest county in New Jersey by area.

Sussex County was named by Royal Governor Jonathan Belcher (1689-1757) for Sussex in England
