Narragansett Township

Seven Narragansett townships were granted by Massachusetts in 1728 and the years following to veterans of King Phillip's War, also known as the Narragansett War, or to their heirs.

  • Narragansett Township No. 1 (now Buxton, Maine)
  • Narragansett Township No. 2 (now Westminster, Mass.)
  • Narragansett Township No. 3 (now Amherst, N. H.)
  • Narragansett Township No. 4 (now Goffstown, N. H.; the land was found unsuitable, and replacement land was subsequently granted in what is now Greenwich, Mass.)
  • Narragansett Township No. 5 (now Bedford, N. H.)
  • Narragansett Township No. 6 (now Templeton, Mass.)
  • Narragansett Township No. 7 (now Gorham, Me.)

An additional township had been granted to Narragansett soldiers in 1700, in what is now Voluntown, Connecticut.
