The Town of Manchester-by-the-Sea was included in a grant of land to the Massachusetts Bay Colony made in by Charles I who signed the charter in that year. By June of the same year the first ship, the Talbot, dropped anchor in Manchester Harbor carrying settlers who were attracted by "the promise of a safe harbor, streams of water, the sheltering hills and an abundant opportunity for building fishweirs, which offered an almost ideal spot for the planting of a new settlement.
The chief, or Sagamore, who ruled in this region was named Masconomo.
He was a friendly, peace loving man whose tribe was decimated by a plague soon after the arrival of the settlers. Manchester became "Manchester" in , when the people of "Jeoffereyes Creeke" requested and were granted the village name. Before that, the area was part of the town of Salem, and before that belonged to the Algonquin Indians. The settlers acquired land by purchase or by "peaceful possession" until , when a final payment was made to the grandson of Masconomo.
At that time, the Native Americans relinquished all right, title, and interest in the land then comprising this township. Fishing and seafaring were the chief livelihoods of the early settlers.
