History

Charlotte County, New York was created from the northwestern part of Albany County in 1772. This included present-day Franklin, Clinton, Essex, Warren, Washington, and Saratoga counties in New York. For a map see the bottom of this page.

Charlotte County also claimed to include much of western Vermont on the east side of Lake Champlain, ceded by New York to Vermont in 1777. This included present-day Grand Isle, Franklin, Chittenden, Addison, Rutland, the northern part of Bennington, and the western parts of Washington, Lamoille, and Orleans counties in Vermont. From 1877 to 1881 Vermont gave its former Charlotte County, New York land the name Bennington County, Vermont.

In 1784 New York discontinued Charlotte County's name and changed it to Washington County, New York.[1]
