Bridgewater;

A quick history of  Bridgewater; In 1722 Samuel Clark, an original proprietor of New Milford, had a portion of his share of land surveyed in the southerly part of that town known as Shepaug Neck.  Although this later became known as Bridgewater, it was not incorporated as a separate town until 1856.  Among the earliest settlers was Joseph Treat, grandson of Robert Treat, a colonial governor of Connecticut.  Others included the four sons of Jeremiah Canfield, Sr.  Descendants of these families played a prominent role in the early history of the area.  The first school district was established in 1758.  http://www.bridgewater-ct.gov/Pages/BridgewaterCT_Webdocs/bridgewater-history
