History Brief:
After the King Phillips War this land, previously conceded to the Showtucket Indians, was broken up and sold to proprietors mainly from Ipswich, Massachusetts. By 1718, the inhabitants were known as the "Farmers in ye Crotch of ye Rivers" (Quinebaug & Shetucket). The Ecclesiastical Society which grew up here was called the North East Society of Norwich and in October 1722 was named Newent. It was incorporated as a Parish in 1723 and as a town in 1786 when it was named Lisbon. In 1861, the northwest portion of the Town (Hanover village) was incorporated into Sprague. Town vital records begin 1786. Barbour collection records cover 1786-1850.
