Camden County was one the original 7 counties of the state. It was created in 1777 and is located in southeastern corner of the state bordering the Atlantic Ocean. The Inferior Court tried any civil case except those involving title to land. The court had jurisdiction over county business matters, such as care for the poor, building and maintaining the courthouse, jails, roads and bridges, issuing liquor licenses, nominating justices of the peace, performing naturalizations, appointing guardians, authorizing indentures, and maintaining a register of wills. The Clerk of the Inferior Court kept minutes of the foregoing proceedings--every one of which places individuals in Camden County at a particular point in time.
