Pittsford, Vermont, USA

On October 12, 1761, The New Hampshire Royal Governor, Bennington Wentworth, granted a charter to a new town in New Hampshire Grants to be known as Pitts’ Ford which later changed to Pittsford. The name came from a ford on Otter Creek and named after William Pitt, prime minister of England at the time. That same year, 25,000 acres were granted to 63 proprietors. Half brothers, Gideon and Benjamin Cooley, settled here in 1767 as farmers.
