Benjamin Munroe was born at Weston, Massachusetts, on 24 Jan 1722/23, the son of Benjamin Munroe and Lydia (Stone) Munroe.[1] He was baptized at Lexington, Massachusetts, three days later.[2]

Connection to Livermore, Maine

Benjamin Munroe's father was one of the original proprietors of the township of Fort Royal in Cumberland County, Massachusetts, which was incorporated as the town of Livermore in 1795 and is now in Androscoggin County, Maine. He died before the lots in that town were divided, and Benjamin inherited his interest. The lots were drawn in 1772, and Benjamin drew lots 33, 39, 92, and 102. He never moved to Livermore, but gave one lot each to his sons Abel Munroe, Abijah Munroe, Isaac Munroe, and John Munroe. They moved there about 1790, and all except Isaac lived there the rest of their lives.[5][6]


Benjamin Munroe died at Lincoln, Massachusetts, on 23 Mar 1804.[7]
