Grantees were from Nine Partners (now Amenia), New York.

Two possibilities exist for the name, each honoring different men: Thomas Osborne, Earl of Danby and Leeds, or Basil Fielding Earl of Denbigh. The second possibility is dependent on 18th century spelling being more phonetic than precise. Denbigh would have been pronounced "Denby" or "Danby".

This is a basic geographic reference, intended to show relative location of adjacent towns. Directional accuracy is limited to 16 compass points. There isn't even the slightest suggestion that one can necessarily travel directly from one town to the next (as in "You can't get there from here").

Utilities
[Top]

Notes about utilities:

  • One electric or phone company indicates that company serves the entire town. More than one of either indicates each serves different areas of town.
  • A listed cable company MIGHT mean the entire town is covered, but not necessarily. More than one listed indicates each serves different areas of town.
  • Unless your area is one served by Vermont's only gas utility, your only option is bottled gas (any dealer).
