History Brief:
This land was included within Canaan, which was part of the Western Lands. The section that became North Canaan was actually the site of the first settlement in the Canaan area in 1638. In January 1738, the Colony authorized that �the northwest town� be sold at New London and it was named Canaan. In October 1767, the town was divided into the two Societies. Inhabitants to the south became the First Society and those to the north became the Second Society. In 1858 the town of North Canaan was physically separated from Canaan. Town vital records begin 1856.
