Brief History

First chartered by Benning Wentworth on Aug. 6, 1763 and contained 13,426 acres. The governor attempted to grant the exact same parcel the following year as the town of Dunbar.  Recognizing the error, Wentworth permitted the second grant to expire and Sudbury remained on the maps and Dunbar became a footnote in history. The colony of New York attempted to grant the same land as Halesborough in 1767, but that effort failed.

The earliest record of a regular meeting for conducting town business is dated January 15, 1789. However, earlier dated pages of this book of records are missing, and thus the date of the organization of the town is unknown.

According to the First United States Census, there were 47 families with a total population of 258. The population was 560 at the 2010 census.[1][2]
