A large tract of country upon the southeast side of the Piziquid River (later known as the Avon River) was erected into a township to be called Windsor. It was formerly known as Pisiquit, where Fort Edward was built (1750) during Father Le Loutre’s War (1749–1755), and where the site of the Acadian church for the parish of l’Assumption (est. 1722) was located.
