Charles Fordham of 18th Century South Jersey

Greetings. I am a historian writing a book on the early history of the Cohansey River region in what became Cumberland County, New Jersey. As part of my research, I am trying to identify the places where from where these early settler migrated and develop a database of the earliest settlers to the region so I can draw some conclusions about the makeup of these late 17th and early 18th society.

I am looking for a Charles Fordham who subscribed to the Greenwich Presbyterian Church (NJ) in 1735. His wife was Elizabeth and he died in 1740. His will said he was a cordwainer. I am particularly interested in knowing where he or his parents or grandparents migrated to South Jersey from.

Thank you for any help you are able to provide.
