History Brief:
Settlement in this section began about 1680. There was a long controversy between the Connecticut and Massachusetts Bay Colony over the ownership of this land. Stonington was divided into two Ecclesiastical Societies in May 1721. In 1807, the Parish of North Stonington became the town of North Stonington. Town vital records begin 1807.
