Beginnings [1]

Historians believe the name was derived from Aston, a village in Berkshire, England. Prior to about 1687, the area was known as Northley. The first known white settler was John Dutton who in 1682 moved with his family from Chester to what was then considered the "back settlement." Other early settlers of the area included Thomas Mercer, Nathaniel Evans, Elwood Tyson, and John Neild (circa 1682). Indians were believed to be residing in the area as late as 1770.
