Overview
Woodstock was first granted in 1763 as Peeling, after an English town, to Eli Demerit and others. Many of the settlers were from Lebanon, Connecticut, and acquainted with that town's minister, Reverend Eleazar Wheelock, who later founded Dartmouth College. The terms of the charter were not met, and in 1771 Governor John Wentworth regranted the town to Nathaniel Cushman and others. In this grant, the town was named Fairfield, after Fairfield, Connecticut. In 1840, the town was renamed Woodstock by act of legislature, after a historic palace in Woodstock, England.
