The Town of New London was called "Pequot" when first settled in 1646 by John Winthrop, the younger, who had previously established a residence on Fisher's Island; when organized in 1658 it was named for London, England. New London was incorporated as the Town of New London in 1784.
New London was a rendezvous of privateers during the American Revolution, home port of a mighty fleet of whaling vessels in the nineteenth century, headquarters of minelayers, submarine chasers and submarines during the World War [WW I] and of the Coast Guard's swift 'rum-chasers' in the prohibition era, the town offers much of historic and maritime interest.
