Canterbury Homes for Sale
Canterbury is a town in Windham County, Connecticut, United States. The population was 5,045 at the 2020 census.
The area was first settled by English colonists in the 1680s as Peagscomsuck. It consisted mainly of land north of Norwich, south of New Roxbury, Massachusetts (now Woodstock, Connecticut), and west of the Quinebaug River, Peagscomsuck Island, and the Plainfield Settlement. In 1703 this section was officially separated from Plainfield and named The Town of Canterbury. The town’s name is a transfer from Canterbury, England.
