About The Book: 
The town of Woolwich is located in Sagadahoc County, Maine, on the east side of the Kennebec River. The early name of the town was Nequasset, the Indian name of a local pond. The first settlers were John Bateman and Edward Brown who resided there in 1638. They purchased from Robin Hood, an Indian chief, most of the territory now comprised by Woolwich.

The town was incorporated 23 August 1775 as the 32nd town in Maine. The population of the town increased slightly from the first census in 1790 when there were 787 residents to its high point in 1830 when there were 1,495 residents. Since then, it dropped each year to a low point in 1930 of 671 residents, rising in 1940 to 1,144 residents.

Vital Records of Woolwich includes Birth, Marriage, and Death records as transcribed from images of microfilms held at the Maine State Archives. Also included are town meeting and miscellaneous records of interest to genealogists as well as ear marks.
