STATE OF NEW JERSEY
[what is now the State of NEW JERSEY was divided into two proprietary Colonies- 'East Jersey' and 'West Jersey'- in 1676, before the current types of Civil Divisions had been most fully established in each of these Colonies; in 1702, the twin Colonies were unified into a single royal Province of New Jersey, by which time there were already Primary (= the County) and Minor (= the Township) Civil Divisions in place in parts of this united Province]

MINOR CIVIL DIVISIONS
>[Note: Though "Townships" are traditionally the Minor Civil Division in NEW JERSEY, the incorporated Municipalities- "cities", "towns", "boroughs" and "villages"- are separate from any Township and are, therefore, considered to be MCDs as well. In addition, Townships- along with incorporated Municipalities- are referred to in State statutes as "municipalities", while the incorporated Municipalities are formally referred to as "Townships" in such documents as court filings and the like.]
