Likens Family of Colonial NJ

Who has info re. this Quaker family line? Michael Likens, the immigrant, probably settled in Old Burlington within the boundaries of the Newton Monthly Meeting in Gloucester County. Future generations lived in the section of Burlington County that was spun off in 1714 to become Hunterdon County and in 1739 was taken from Hunterdon County to become Morris County. Those memnbers of the family were then within the boundaries of the Woodbridge Monthly Meeting until the Mendham meeting house was built. When the Woodbidge Monthly Meeting closed, its records were transferred to Rahway and Plainfield.

I think I know the general path of their settlement, but I can't find the names of the family members or vital records pertaining to them.
