Welcome to our Lamoille County history website. The purpose of this site is to provide genealogists with an accurate historical view of Lamoille County, Vermont. While we provide, or link to, an extensive collection of biographies, cemetery transcriptions, census extractions, census images, directories, historical sketches, military records, and vital records for Lamoille County; the intent of our website is in providing a glimpse of Lamoille, it’s history, and the people who lived in and helped create it.
- Lamoille was formed from three existing counties in 1835: Washington, Orleans, and Franklin. Early records for some towns in Lamoille will therefore exist within those county records.
- Probate records are available for this county from 1837 to the present.
- There exists no land records for the county as a whole. See individual townships.
Though it is not the purpose of this work to enter minutely into the history of the territory of which it treats, it still becomes necessary to invite the reader among the cobwebs of time, and to retrace with him some of the half-hidden paths that lead back adown the misty vale of centuries, to the days when the grand old Green Mountains towered above an unexplored wilderness, to the time when the majestic forests of the present proud State of Vermont echoed only the voices of nature, when its beauty-teeming lakes and charming streams reflected from their bosoms only the bark canoe of the wily Indian. Enroute we purpose to enquire into the causes that brought the great commonwealth into existence, and to briefly notice its progress from the first settlement of its territory by civilized people, to the time of its admission as a member of the Federal Union. One of its fourteen grand divisions we purpose to more particularly notice, viz.: Lamoille county. Here we shall endeavor to trace in outline the lives of a few of its hardy pioneers, enquire into its early proceedings, trace the erection of each one of the townships therein, and to hand down to future generations the name and occupation of each of their residents in 1883-1884.
