The larger portion of the waters between Stony island and Point Peninsula washes the shores of the town of Lyme. It was erected from Brownville on March 6, 1818, and named from the old Lyme, in Connecticut. It then included all of its present territory, the town of Cape Vincent, and that portion of Penet’s Square which lay west of Clayton. Cape Vincent was set off thirty-one years later. (Jefferson County History, by L. H. Everts, 1878)
