    • Jerry,´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 just a minor point´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 and a little pedantic,´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 but something´uŞ ´uŞyou´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞ0 might´uŞ ´uŞwant to´uŞ ´uŞcheck´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 out, is that´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 as far as I´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 know there is no´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞBridgewater in´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Wiltshire´uŞ ´uŞ(unless it´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 was a small farm or´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 something).´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞThe´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞ0 most likely location´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 for´uŞ ´uŞBridgewater´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞ0 would be´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Bridgwater (without´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞ0 the e) which is in´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Somerset. :)

      ´uŞ0 Pike was born in Wiltshire, England. He came to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞ1635´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞ0 with his father, John Pike (1572-1654), who first settled in Newbury. In 1665,´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞ0 acting on´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞ0 the invitation of Governor Philip Carteret, a number of Newbury´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞresidents formed a´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞcorporation to settle in Woodbridge, named after Rev. John´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞWoodbridge, a Newbury´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞclergyman.[1]
      ´uŞ0 The younger John Pike, one of the original nine "associates" of Woodbridge, was´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞgranted´uŞ ´uŞsome 300 acres (1.2 km2) in Woodbridge in 1665, more than the common´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞfreeholders. He´uŞ ´uŞwas "the prominent man of the town" in its early years. He was´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞelected´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 President of´uŞ ´uŞWoodbridge, and in 1671 was appointed to the Governor's´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞCouncil. After´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 1675, he was´uŞ ´uŞappointed captain of the militia, and afterward was´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞknown as Capt.´uŞ ´uŞ0 Pike.[2]
      ´uŞ0 In 1684, together with his son John, he was charged and convicted of possession´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 of´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞstolen goods, a felony. After his death, the New Jersey assembly passed an act´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞclearing´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞhis name, as well as one allowing his family to sue for defamation.[2] He´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞ0 was well´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞrespected despite the felony conviction. After years of local leadership,´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞ0 Pike was chosen´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞto represent the township in the colonial General Assembly ´uŞthree´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞ0 times: 1692-3, 1696,´uŞ0 ´uŞ0´uŞ ´uŞand 1697-8
      ´uŞ0 Of the first group of New Englanders coming to their new home, the majority´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 came´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 from the vicinity of Newbury, Massachusetts. They named their new home´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Woodbridge´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 in honor of Reverend John Woodbridge, the assistant pastor of their´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Congregational´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Church.
      ´uŞ0
      ´uŞ0 "An acknowledged author of early New Jersey history relates that Reverend John´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Woodbridge came to the then unnamed Woodbridge area accompanied by five´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 men from´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Massachusetts in the year 1661, three years earlier than any other´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 related incident´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 pertaining to our Township."
      ´uŞ0
      ´uŞ0 "The men who accompanied Reverend Woodbridge were John Martin, Hopewell´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Hall,´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 John Pike, John and Charles Gilman. They built five log cabins and a many´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 sided log´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 house to he used as a church meeting place. These houses were´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 constructed in an area´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 which several years later was known as the "Kirk Green".´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 When the building activities´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 were completed, the group returned to´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Massachusetts."
      ´uŞ0
      ´uŞ0 "ln 1663 they returned to this area bringing their wives end children. They sailed´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 by´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 boat to Elizabethtown and then set out on foot carrying bedding, furniture and´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 household equipment. It was a difficult journey over very rough overgrown´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 terrain.´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Darkness overcame them before their arrival and when they reached the´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 log house,´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 weary and worn they retired forfeiting an evening meal."´/uŞ
