New London History

New London, located in southeastern CT at the mouth of the Thames River, is bounded on the north and west by Waterford, on the east by the Thames River and on the south by Long Island Sound. It covers 7.3 sq. miles and has a population of approx. 27,000.

The town, first settled in 1646, was founded by John Winthrop, the younger - son of the John Winthrop who led the second Puritan emigration from England. The town was named in 1658 and wasn't incorporated until 1784.

"During the American Revolution, it was an important base for privateers, and it was attacked and burned in 1781 by British forces led by the former American general Benedict Arnold." 1

Several towns in New London County were formed from sections of New London:

Today New London consists only of the city of New London, a thriving port with ship building and repair facilities and home of the US Coast Guard Academy and Connecticut College.
