The original Fairfield County consisted of the
Rye, Greenwich, Stamford, Norwalk, Fairfield, and Stratford. In 1673,
the town of Woodbury was incorporated and added to Fairfield County. In
1683, New York and Connecticut reached a final agreement regarding
their common border. This resulted in the cession of the town of Rye to
New York. From the late 17th to early 18th centuries, several new towns
were incorporated in western Connecticut and added to Fairfield County,
namely Danbury (1687), Ridgefield (1709), Newtown (1711), and New
Fairfield (1740). In 1751, Litchfield County was constituted, taking
over the town of Woodbury. The final boundary adjustment to Fairfield
County occurred in 1788 when the town of Brookfield was incorporated
from parts of Newtown, Danbury, and New Milford, with Fairfield County
gaining territory from Litchfield County.
