Beginnings [1]

Somers, originally a part of Enfield, was incorporated as a town by Massachusetts in 1734, and probably named for John Somers, an English lord chancellor. It was found to lie within the bounds of the Connecticut Charter and joined the secession movement. Somers was received by the Connecticut General Assembly in 1749.
