Norwich Township was laid out and organized under its present name in 1813, but it included until 1820 the southern part of what is now Perry Township. It was first settled in 1807, the first pioneer being Daniel Brunk. He was soon followed by Rev. Benjamin Britton, a "New Light" preacher, who founded a church in a log cabin. The congregation, after a few years of struggling, disbanded and joined a congregation at Dublin. Other early settlers were Isaac Grace, George Rager, Peter Latimer, Samuel Davis, Ephraim Fisher, William Armistead, Asa Wilcox, Robert Elliott, Henry McCracken, Moses Hart, Harmon Groom, Martin Miller, Francis Wilcox, Samuel King, John Laird, John Van Schoyck, Daniel Roberts, John McCann, Ezekiel Lattimer, William Watts, Samuel Paxton, David Thomas, David Smiley, Edmund Warren, Isaac Davidson, Abraham Sells, Jonathan Charles Peyton, Apollos Rogers, Daniel Avery and the Hoppers, Everetts and Cutlers.
