Middlesex County
The county was created by the Massachusetts General Court on May 10, 1643, when it was ordered "that the whole plantation within this jurisdiction be divided into four sheires".
Middlesex initially contained Charlestown, Cambridge, Watertown, Sudbury, Concord, Woburn, Medford, Wayland, and Reading.
In the late 19th century and early 20th century, Boston annexed several adjacent cities and towns including Charlestown and Brighton from Middlesex County.

Middlesex is the most populous county in Massachusetts, and maintains two traditional county seats at Lowell and Cambridge.
The county government was abolished in 1997 but the county itself still survives as a legal venue and for other administrative purposes.
