History:

Grafton County was formally organized in 1771, including all of the northern frontier of the state and a portion of what is now located in Vermont. It was one of five counties first identified in 1769. The county was named for Augustus FitzRoy, 3rd Duke of Grafton, a supporter of America while serving as British Prime Minister. The far northern portions of the county were taken in the formation of Coos County.
