Where is Woodbury, Connecticut, USA? 

Woodbury, Litchfield, Connecticut, USA
The founders of Ancient Woodbury came from Stratford in the 1670s. Ancient Woodbury consisted of the present towns of Woodbury, Southbury, Roxbury, Bethlehem, most of Washington and parts of Middlebury and Oxford.

Two groups of settlers came from Stratford. One, a group of religious dissidents unhappy with the church in Stratford, was led by Woodbury’s first minister, Reverend Zachariah Walker. The second group, led by Deacon Samuel Sherman, had been given approval by the general court to purchase land from local Native Americans in order establish a new settlement. The two groups, consisting of fifteen families (about fifty people), arrived in Ancient Woodbury, known as “Pomperaug Plantation, early in 1673.
