Historyedit

The name on the town charter is Llandaff, after the Bishop of Llandaff, chaplain to England's King George III Originally, however, the land was granted as Whitcherville to James Avery and 60 others on January 31, 1764 But those settlers forfeited their grant by failure to comply with the requirements of the charter, so the territory was re-granted to Dartmouth College on January 19, 1770

Settlements were made under the Dartmouth grant Roads and a mill were built at the expense of the college, and on November 11, 1774, the town was incorporated After the Revolutionary War, however, the first grantees successfully claimed that their forfeiture was illegal, so the college had to abandon its title and lose what it had expended in making the settlements

Landaff was originally much larger than today It was changed by legislative actions over the years:

  • On July 2, 1845, it gained a small tract from the then-adjoining town of Lincoln
  • On June 23, 1859, all of Landaff lying northwest of the Ammonoosuc River was annexed to the town of Lisbon
  • On July 20, 1876, the town was divided, with the eastern half becoming the town of Easton

The Lisbon Area Historical Society promotes the public's interest in and appreciation for the Towns of Lisbon, Landaff and Lyman, and maintains the collection, preservation and cataloging of materials which establish or illustrate the history of the three Towns, their indigenous history and heritage, their exploration, settlement and development, as well as their cultural and artistic heritage
