Stafford Township is the gateway to the resort communities on Long Beach Island, with Route 72 providing the sole road access, ending in Ship Bottom as it crosses Manahawkin Bay via the Manahawkin Bay Bridge (formally known as the Dorland J. Henderson Memorial Bridge). The Garden State Parkway and U.S. Route 9 pass through the township and provide access to Route 72.
"Manahawkin" was identified as a Lenape word meaning "Land of Good Corn." More recent scholarship suggests that "Manahawkin" may mean something more like "fertile land sloping into the water." Other variations on the origin of this name range from a derivation of the Hawkins family to the sound of the honking of migrating geese. The spelling has gone through many variations including among others: Manahohacky," "Manahoching" and "Manahawken." In fact, one Toms River observer in the 1870's criticized the people of our town for not even knowing how to spell the name of their own town.
Stafford Township has an interesting role in New Jersey and national history including a rich history of colonial industry, 19thcentury bog iron industry, the birth of the United States Lifesaving Service, the post-Civil War railroad boom, cranberry industry, tourism, and the military and cultural legacy of the New Jersey Civil War (1775-1783).
