The town of Marlton, NJ and Evesham Township, NJ are used interchangeably by locals. Officially Evesham Township was incorporated in 1692. By the early 19th century it was also called Marlton. By 1758, Marlton was recognized as its own area, officially named as a village in 1845. They immediately renamed the Evesham Post office and Baptist Church to Marlton. The area is still referred to as Marlton, and the Olde Marlton Village is still intact, and requirements were made to preserve its historical buildings.
Evesham once included Marlton, Mount laurel Shamong, Medford, Lumberton, and even Washington Township in 1892. Since then those towns became their own entities, and today’s Evesham Township is much smaller, but still home to over 45,000 people. Hutchinson loves coming to the entirety of Evesham, old and new to do heating and air conditioning work. Today Marlton is not incorporated but is a census recognized place, with 10,000 of its own residents.
The very first settlers here lived with the Lenni-Lenape tribe here when they arrived from England. They were Welsh and British but were fleeing religious persecution, as practicing Quakers. They named the area after Evesham England in 1672, or for Thomas Eves who first purchased the Marlton land in 1676.
In 1680 a couple named Evans settled on the land that is now near Greentree Road and Lincoln Drive. They dug themselves a cave to live in, because they had no tools or supplies to build a house. The local native people welcomed them and helped them survive.
Perhaps the cave was sturdy because they dug it into marl clay. The early years of Marlton were centered around a green clay and shell discovery, called marl clay, the pits were mined and sold as building materials and fertilizer, even for water treatment. The mines fueled a growth and building boom in the area in the mid 1800’s. We still service some of those old homes.
