INDIVIDUAL STATES. .
The first permanent settlement in Maine was formed about the year 1630; and for several years the government of the colony was administered in the name of Sir Ferdinando Gorges as proprietor of the country.
In 1652, the inhabitants of Maine were placed under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts. The country was, however, afterwards claimed by the heirs of Gorges, but was, in 1677, purchased by the colony of Massachusetts, From that time the territory formed a part of the colony and afterwards of the state of Masssachusetts, and was styled, the District of Maine, till the year 1820, when it was erected into an independent state.
