Cumberland co. This is a pleasant
and flourishing farming town, 23
miles N. from Portland, and 38 S.
W. from Augusta. Incorporated,
1774. Population, 1837, 1,861. It
is well watered by Royal’s river,
on which are mills of various kinds.
The soil of the town is very fertile,
containing large tracts of intervale.
The first settlers were compelled
to build a block house for their pro-

building the people attended pub-,
lie worship for a number of years.
This town has an abundant water
power, a school fund of $4,000, and
a society of about 300 of those neat
and industrious people, “ whose
faith is one and whose practice is
one.” See-Canterbury, N. H.
