History Brief:
This area was part of the Western Lands (Goshen, Colebrook, Kent, Hartland, Norfolk, Canaan, Cornwall, Salisbury, Sharon, Torrington, Barkhamsted, Harwinton, Winchester and New Hartford) made over to Hartford and Windsor in 1686 to save them from being taken by the Royal Gov. Andros. This land, which was the southeast portion of that given to Hartford, was proportioned to some Hartford inhabitants in 1732. In May 1733, it was named New Hartford and incorporated as a separate township in 1738. Town vital records begin 1734. Barbour collection records cover 1740-1854.
