Old Colony Historical Society. Town of Norton, MA - Town History. The area known today as the Town of Norton in Bristol County was originally part of the Taunton North Purchase. As more families settled in this area, the people wanted to either form their own town or a separate precinct. The main reasons for this were the distances they had to travel and the poor roads that made it most inconvenient to attend church services in Taunton. The settlers petitioned for a minister, a church, and the right to become a precinct.

Thus in 1709, this area became known as the North Precinct of Taunton. On June 12, 1711, the said North Precinct of Taunton was incorporated as the Town of Norton. Norton's composition is unique, as it was developed as villages. For a complete pictoral history of Norton, pick up a copy of the book "Images of America - Norton" written by our own historians Ruth E. Digital History Project | Wheaton College.
