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.

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. For a map see the bottom of this page.

In 1784 Charlotte County's name was discontinued and changed to Washington County.[1]
