Hanson, Massachusetts Maps

Map of Sections of Hanover that were Annexed to Hanson in 1754 (at that time part of Pembroke)

“The portion of this map within the [blue] dotted lines shows territory that was Abington previous to 1727, then from 1727 to 1754 Hanover, and now a part of Hanson. That territory shown above [in red dots] which is bounded easterly by Indian Head Brook, northerly by Indian Head River and westerly by the dotted line, shows territory which was a part of Scituate previous to 1727, a part of Hanover from 1727 to 1754, and now a part of Hanson. The territory taken from Hanover as above was first annexed to Pembroke, but at the time Hanson was incorporated it became a part of that town. (See Court Records, 1753-1755, Massachusetts Archives).” This map was copied by Lloyd Vernon Briggs in his book Jedediah Dwelley and John F.
