History Brief:
This was originally part of Mattatuck (Waterbury), whose settlement was authorized in 1674. An Ecclesiastical Society was first established in 1736 and granted full privileges as the Parish of Northbury in 1739. In May 1795, the Parish was incorporated as the town of Plymouth. The Plymouth Hollow section in the west was incorporated as the Town of Thomaston in 1875. Town vital records begin 1795. Barbour collection records cover 1795-1850.
