Buddtown is an unincorporated community located within Southampton Township in Burlington County, New Jersey, United States.[2] Located between Vincentown and Pemberton, it is named for Thomas Budd who owned farmland in the area in the 18th century.[3] The area itself contains houses and churches in the community itself and farmland surrounding the settlement.[4] The stream that runs through Buddtown is named Stop the Jade Run supposedly named for the cry made by the owners of a runaway horse, "jade" being an old name for a horse.[3][5]
