History Brief:
The land, Totoket, was part of the lands purchased from Montowese by the New Haven colonists in 1638. The land about Cedar Lake and Linsley Pond was divided off in 1692, and a Second Society of Branford was formed in 1722. Other farmers in what is now Northford began to petition for a Third Society in 1736, which was granted in 1745. In May 1831 the Northford and North Branford Village Societies were separated from Branford to form the town of North Branford. Town vital records begin 1831. Barbour collection records cover 1831-1854.
