Founders of Dedham, Massachusetts
Winthrop's Journal states that a town was formed on the banks of the Charles on September 1, 1635--a town that must have been Dedham. Twelve men attended the first town meeting held on that day. In November 1636, those 12 and 7 others petitioned the General Court for an enlargement of their grant for a township. In July 1637, twelve more men arrived, bringing the total to 31, at which time the town admitted freeman and established a church. [1] [2]
