<center>'''Introduction'''</center>
 
The town of Boston was divided into companies, or districts, to help keep the order, fighting fires, etc. The concept of the Ward was first codified in '''1735'''. The Overseers of the Poor were having difficulty covering the whole town and proposed to divide the town into twelve wards. The freemen agreed and added that these wards would be the districts for "military considerations," too. The division was given to the Overseers to create and the resulting report for such divisions was accepted by the freeman with the caveat that these boundaries would stay in force until the town decided to change them.[See [http://archive.org/details/reportofrecordco12bost ''A Report of the Record Commissioners of the City of Boston Containing the Boston Records from 1729 to 1742''] (Boston, 1885) [''i.e. v. 12''], 127, 131-133.] The next change in the ward boundaries came in '''1805'''. [See Lemuel Shattuck, [http://archive.org/details/60421860R.nlm.nih.gov ''Report to the Committee of the City Council Appointed to Obtain the Census of Boston for the Year 1845''] (Boston, 1846), Ap. 4-10, wrongly dating the first division as 1746.]<br><br>When Boston incorporated as a city in 1822. Wards were drawn and redefined in '''1822, 1838, 1850, 1865, 1875, 1895, 1914, and 1924'''. The 1875 was set aside by the court and never officially used.

The town of Boston was divided into companies, or districts, to help keep the order, fighting fires, etc. The concept of the Ward was first codified in '''1735'''. The Overseers of the Poor were having difficulty covering the whole town and proposed to divide the town into twelve wards. The freemen agreed and added that these wards would be the districts for "military considerations," too. The division was given to the Overseers to create and the resulting report for such divisions was accepted by the freeman with the caveat that these boundaries would stay in force until the town decided to change them.[See [http://archive.org/details/reportofrecordco12bost ''A Report of the Record Commissioners of the City of Boston Containing the Boston Records from 1729 to 1742''] (Boston, 1885) [''i.e. v. 12''], 127, 131-133.] The next change in the ward boundaries came in '''1805'''. [See Lemuel Shattuck, [http://archive.org/details/60421860R.nlm.nih.gov ''Report to the Committee of the City Council Appointed to Obtain the Census of Boston for the Year 1845''] (Boston, 1846), Ap. 4-10, wrongly dating the first division as 1746.]<br><br>When Boston incorporated as a city in 1822.

These ward boundaries were defined in ''A Catalogue of the City Councils of Boston, 1822-1890, Roxbury, 1846-1867, Charlestown, 1847-1873 and of the selectmen of Boston, 1634-1822, also of various other town and municipal officers'' (Boston, 1891), xxxix, 270 pp. (Boston, 2nd ed., 1909), 402 pp., at pages 7 through 40 [see [http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/32888736 WorldCat (Other Libraries)]; Not at FHL; online at [http://archive.org/stream/catalogueofcityc00bost#page/6/mode/2up Internet Archive], [http://books.google.com/books?id=rAdQAAAAYAAJ Google Books], and [http://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/000419077 Hathi Trust (1909 ed.)]; and in the ''Municipal Register'' for 1912, 1924, and 1927 [[http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/191708461 WorldCat (Other Libraries)]; Not at FHL; online links for all years, see the [http://www.bpl.org/online/govdocs/municipal_register.htm Boston Public Library]].  
  
 
It is important to understand these changes ward boundaries as they are referenced in city directories, census, tax records, and other documents. Voter lists and governmental representation was established by wards. The following is a description and associated map to help learn where these boundaries were. Note that the descriptions are the official boundary and the maps sometimes vary from the descriptions (Note: boundaries and colored areas may differ).

With Boston's aggressive program of landfill and annexation of neighboring towns, the city landscape of streets was ever-changing. This is the researcher's guide to these streets, the additions, but also the deletions or moving of a name from one area to another.

Because of the annexation of Roxbury, a list of changes in names for street in Boston proper and Roxbury was given in 1868 to eliminate the confusion caused by the duplication of names [see Municipal Records, Vol. 46, pp. 286-408, city Doc. No. 49, 1868]. The great study of street names and their history post-1708 was published in 1879 [see City Doc. No. 119 for 1879, Appendix J]. This included the work in 1860, but the problem was it only focused on Boston proper and many more towns had been annexed by that time. The Street Commissioners reported on 27 December 1880 to the city Council a ''Report of the Street Commissioners on the Nomenclature of the City's Streets'' [see City Doc. No. 141 for 1880] of suitable names the duplicate streets could be given. The rest of the publication history is presented in the lists to follow.
