  • Notes 
    • He may have been a son of James Ashton of Providence, but this is unproved.

      "He was apparently a divine, for he is spoken of in old documents as the Rev. James Ashton, yet it is likely that he was not ordained. Be that as it may, he was the first who ministered to the spiritual wants of the infant settlements in Monmouth County, which were of the Baptist persuasion. He was held in great esteem and filled numerous responsible positions." [Historical and Genealogical Miscellany: Early Settlers of New Jersey and Their Descendants, Volume 5, citation details below]
