In the 1937 renumbering, 1 was assigned to the roads from Mercer County (on Old York Rd) to Long Branch via Freehold, using former county roads: an unknown route, parts of routes 2 and 1, and routes 3, 7, 9, 14, 24, 42, and 51. In the 1953 renumbering, this became 28B, 524, and 537. A new 1 was created from what had formerly been part of 3, running from Mercer County (on Perrineville Rd) to Carrs Corners. When 571 was assigned, the westernmost section became part of 571; the rest lives on as 1.

3 was assigned in the 1937 renumbering to the roads from the Mercer County line on Perrineville Rd to Morganville, former routes 10, 12, 11, 17, 18, 20, and 27. The part from Carrs Corners to Tennent became part of 527 in the 1953 renumbering, and the part of 3 southwest of Carrs Corners was renumbered as a newly-formed 1. On 5/3/1966, a northern extension of 3 from Morganville to west of Keyport was taken over by the county.

In the 1937 renumbering, 4 was assigned from Marlboro to Vanderburgh, with another section branching from the route just west of Vanderburgh and going north to Keyport. This was formed from pre-1937 routes 25, unknown, 60, and 79. No changes have been made to 4 since then, except for the removal of the Marlboro section on 5/25/1989.

Conover Rd in Marlboro was originally assigned as part of 5 in the 1937 renumbering; I don't know its pre-1937 number. By 1939 it became 5A. The 1953 renumbering saw 5 become 520 and a new 5 formed in Neptune, so 5A was renumbered to 4A. It was given back to Marlboro on 5/25/1989.

5 was designated in the 1937 renumbering as the roads from Bradevelt to NJ 35 south of Red Bank, using former 26 and 44. A spur was designated on Conover Rd in Marlboro; by 1939 this was 5A. In the 1953 renumbering, all of 5 became 520, and 5 was reassigned as one of the many sections of 17. It's not clear when, though it was probably after 1953, but the section of Atkins Ave in Asbury Park was eventually given back to the city.

In the 1937 renumbering, 6 was assigned to a network of roads in the Matawan/Keyport area. These roads had been designated as 66, part of 65, 64, 67, 68, unknown (Front St/Amboy Ave west of Broadway), 33, and part of 62. 6 was assigned to the roads from the Middlesex County line toward Old Bridge to Keyport via Matawan, and then east from Keyport to merge into NJ 36. Spurs existed west from Keyport into NJ 35 and along an arc from Matawan to Cliffwood with a short spur to Middlesex County. The latter arc became 6A by 1939. A new spur of 6 was taken over on 5/17/1939, running east from Keyport into Union Beach on Broadway. In the 1953 renumbering, much of 6, namely the part west of the NJ 35 junction between Matawan and Keyport, became 516. The rest is still 6 to this day.
A note - the route out of downtown Keyport was originally on Front St, Church St, and 2nd St, probably because the current route was used by the Jersey Central Traction Co. The current route was taken over on 8/22/1928, and the old route was probably killed then or soon after. I am assuming that pre-1937 62 moved with the main road.

7 was designated in the 1937 renumbering to run from Keyport to Atlantic Highlands, using former state routes unknown and part of 58. A spur ran north from Hendrickson's Corners to Keansburg and southwest to NJ 36 along former 73 and part of 63. This spur became 7A by 1939. In the 1953 renumbering, the whole main route from Keyport to Atlantic Highlands became part of 516 (with the part west of Maple Pl becoming a spur). 7A became 7 once again, including a spur on Port Monmouth Rd, taken over 10/18/1939.

8 was assigned in the 1937 renumbering to some routes in the Atlantic Highlands and Highlands area. The main route began at NJ 36 south of downtown Atlantic Highlands and went north and east back to NJ 36; this had been part of 57 and 53. One spur went southwest from NJ 36 along part of former 59 to Navesink, and another spur, which became 8A by 1939, went southeast and south from Atlantic Highlands to Navesink and across the Oceanic Bridge, along part of former 57. At some later time, the spur northeast from Navesink became 8B. The section of 8 looping off NJ 36 in Highlands was apparently taken over by the county on 5/19/1913, but does not appear on 1929 or 1937 maps. Thus I don't know when it was actually given its number; it may have been taken over on 5/19/1913 but given up soon after, and later taken over again.

It was extended west to the Navesink River on 3/8/1939 and to 12 on 4/20/1960. The 1953 renumbering included a truncation of 10; the eastern part was renumbered as parts of 34 and 520.
