This land was part of that purchased from the Indians by Rev. John Davenport and Theophilus Eaton for the New Haven Colony. William Bradley was the first settler in 1640. For 40 years the settlers trekked to New Haven to attend church and bury their dead. They were established as the North Haven Parish in May 1716. Attempts in 1782 to join with Mount Carmel Parish and incorporate as a town failed. Town privileges were granted to North Haven alone in October 1786. Town vital records begin 1786.
Barbour collection records cover 1786-1854.
