|The Town of Bombay came into existence by an act of legislation passed on March 30, 1833, which separated it |
from the Town of Fort Covington. The town was named as a compliment to Mrs. Michael Hogan, who was a
native of Bombay, India. The first settlers were the Hadleys and the Sanborns around 1803. Later a great may
Irish immigrants settled, coming up the St. Lawrence from Montreal.
