This house was built in 1755 by John Jarman. When he died in 1769, this house was inherited by his oldest son John. Other sons of his fought in the Revolutionary War.

A Salem County Historical Society brochure states that, "The name of Dan Jarman, believed to be one of the seven sons of the builder, appears in a list of Captain John Kelly's Company of Salem County. Azariah Jarman is listed on a payroll as a private in Captain Nieukirk's Company of foot militia while Daniel Jarman is listed as Corporal on the same list. Azariah Jarman stated that his brother Daniel Jarman was taken prisoner during an engagement at Mullica Hill, one in which Abram Grymes, also of Kelly's company, was killed." [1]
