The territory of Trumbull was originally entirely a part of Stratford, settled in 1639, and was owned by Stratford inhabitants eighty six years before the first village within Trumbull, called Unity, was set-off in 1725. Hence, all of Trumbull’s early history and public records are intermingled with those of the town of Stratford. After the Revolutionary War, citing their well-established population and the inconvenient distance to attend town meetings in Stratford, they petitioned the Connecticut General Assembly for status as an incorporated town. After several denials, the legislature granted their petition in October, 1797. On November 20, 1797, the first town meeting was held. The new town was named for Jonathan Trumbull, Connecticut governor during the Revolutionary War and a valued advisor to George Washington.
