  • Notes 
    • Thomas H. Lamphier was one of the early settlers, owning 300 acres of land, died in Oct. 1872. His brother, Captain H. Lamphier, came out about the year 1854, was only two years in Winterbourne, but during that time purchased the two farms on which the village is built; he also built the first dam across Cox's Creek, also the first mill and the Presbyterian Manse, and named the village Winterbourne after the ancestral home of the Lamphiers in England. In 1855 he returned to England.
