      The story of Haddonfield begins with Francis Collins, an English Quaker and bricklayer. On October 23, 1682, Mr. Collins became the first settler within the boundaries of what is today known as Haddonfield, New Jersey. Mr. Collins built his home, "Mountwell" on a 400 acre track which was then known as West Jersey. Mr. Collins farmed his land, but was not involved in encouraging settlement in the area.
