The Township of Camden was created by an act of the Legislature passed November 28, 1831, with boundaries coincident with those contained in the act of February 28, 1828, incorporating the city of Camden. The act provided that a township meeting should be held in the Court House in Camden annually on the second Monday in March. It further provided that the township committees of Newton and Camden Townships should meet at Toy’s Hotel and settle the apportionment of the public property and effects between the two townships.
