From his early days Joshua Stites Shivers yearned for the sea. He didn’t have very far to become a boat captain.

Once he came of age, the son of Cornelia Buck and Edward Marmaduke Shivers gravitated from the mainland of Middle Township, where he was born on Jan. 15, 1876, to a seaside village called Anglesea, which had earned a reputation for being a profitable place for launching fishing expeditions. By the time Shivers got there, Anglesea was a full-fledged borough, having been separated from Middle Township on June 3, 1885, and it was later to be renamed the borough of North Wildwood on May 16, 1906.
