Burying Grounds, Cemeteries, Gravestones & History of Georgetown, Massachusetts

Cemeteries & History of Georgetown, Massachusetts

Georgetown was first settled in 1639 and was officially incorporated into a town in 1828 from portions of Rowley. The first people to make their home in this area was a group of families from Yorkshire, England led by Rev. Ezekiel Rogers. They purchased this tract of land in 1639 which later would become parts of Rowley, Georgetown, Groveland, Byfield and Boxford.

In 1675, several Indian tribes in the area banned together under a leader, King Phillip, and declared war against the settlers. A militia was raised under Capt. Samuel Brocklebank, Capt. Wadsworth of Milton and Lt. Sharp of Brookline. They met in war on April 21, 1676 in Sudbury, MA and the local militia suffered many losses. An obelisk stands in Sudbury Cemetery dedicated to the memory of those who died in that battle.

Residents who were victims of the Throat Distemper epidemic of 1736 are buried here.

Union Cemetery - est. 1732
