History Brief:
The early history of the North Parish of New London runs through a maze of conflicting claims deriving from Indian deeds and early land speculators. The first grants of land within the Mohegan reservation were made by Uncas in August 1658 to Richard Haughton and Samuel Rogers. James Rogers, son of Samuel, was the first actual settler on these lands, sometime after 1670. A commission was appointed by the General Court to establish land titles in 1721, and in the next year the land controversies were sufficiently settled so as to call a minister and plan the building of a meeting-house. In 1786 the North Parish, with the district of Chesterfield, was incorporated as a town called Montville. The lands reserved by the Mohegans are within this Town. A portion of Montville was incorporated into Salem at its formation in 1819. Town vital records begin 1786. Barbour collection records cover 1786-1850.
