  This site is an on-going effort to bring together historical & archaeological research & primary documents related to the place early European explorers called the Land of Norumbega.   
  Province of Mayne Map  

Northern New England was a place apart in its early days of settlement, quite different from the Puritan colonies
of southern New England. New Hampshire and Maine began asproprietary colonies, loyal to the king and the Church of England.

Essex County was a part of Puritan, Massachusetts but was also part of the frontier, and closely tied in many ways to her northern neighbors. So its history is included here as well.
