Lewiston is located on the east side of the Androscoggin River and before 1854 was within the bounds of Lincoln County. The first white settlers arrived in 1770, on a tract of land granted by the Pejepscot Proprietors to Jonathan Bagley and Moses Little, with fifty families to settle there.

By 1790 the population had increased to 532. The town records begin as early as 1795 at the time of the towns incorporation.Douglas Hodgkin has transcribed, verbatim, the town records with this volume containing those records prior to 1852. A second volume will contain more of the town records along with the vital records.There is a wealth of information contained in this volume on the early residents. Some of what can be found are elections of individuals into various town offices, authorization of taxes and expenditures, laying out of roads, struggles with the school district boundaries and votes cast in elections for officers of other governments.

Using these records along with the vital records can give researchers a better insight into early town government and often locate individuals for whom no vital records can be found.Volume 2 will contain additional town records along with the vital records of the town and will be published later this year, making a great companion volume.
