Shrewsbury Township is a Township in Monmouth County, New Jersey. What is now Shrewsbury Township was originally formed on October 31, 1693, and was created as a township on February 21, 1798. Over the centuries, portions of the township have been taken to form Stafford Township, Dover Township (now Toms River Township), Ocean Township, Red Bank, Eatontown, Rumson, Fair Haven, Little Silver, Shrewsbury borough and New Shrewsbury (now Tinton Falls).
When it was formed in 1693, Shrewsbury Township covered an area of almost 1,000 square miles (2,600 km2), extending to the north to the Navesink River, south to include all of present-day Ocean County, east to the Atlantic Ocean and west to the present-day border of Monmouth County. It retained its size and scope until 1750, when Stafford Township was formed, taking away most of present-day Ocean County.
