Woodbridge Township, in Middlesex County, is the oldest of the original townships in New Jersey. Named for the Reverend John W. Woodbridge, who settled there in 1664, and was granted a Royal Charter in 1669, the township was reincorporated in 1693, and again in 1798, as part of the original group of townships. There are several distinct communities within the township, including Avenel, Colonia, Fords, Hopelawn, Iselin, Keasbey, Menlo Park Terrace, Port Reading, Sewaren, and Woodbridge Proper. Notable people who have resided in Woodbridge have included Joseph Bloomfield, 4th governor of New Jersey, as well as Kelsey Grammar, who starred in Frasier and Cheers.
