How did Woodstock get it's name?
|*In 1761, New Hampshire Governor Benning Wentworth proclaimed the territory New Hampshire and parceled out the land west of the river (the Connecticut River dividing what is now Vermont and New Hampshire) into townships. He divided the six square miles that lay across the "Water Queechy" valley into sixty equal shares for which each propietor was to pay annually one ear of Indian corn and one shilling per hundred acres. He named the plantation "Woodstock."
