Brief History[edit | edit source]

The town was chartered on April 29, 1751. Originally Marleborough, then Marlbrough, the Indian Wars interfered with the initial settlement. Wentworth re-granted the town to exactly the same group of people in 1761, and again to a slightly different group in 1764 as New Marlborough. The "New" was never popular with the residents, and was later officially changed.   As Marlboro was a half shire town of the County of Windham in the early days, courts were held alternately with Westminster  [1][2]
