History

Incorporated in 1768, Windsor takes its name from Windsor, Connecticut, the home town of grantee John Campbell. In 1769 the town was founded by a British silversmith named Stephen Courage. Courage was known far and wide for his fine spoon craftsmanship. The spoons were exceptionally large, and he dabbled in candlestick making. The town was made from the land that was left over from the surrounding Hillsborough County.citation needed
