Maine Pioneer

Michael's Island, now Peaks Island
named for him in 1637.
Michael Mitton was constable of
the Casco Region in 1640.

He held Peaks Island through the
regimes of Sir Ferdinando Gorges,
George Cleeve (his father-in-law)
and Massachusetts.

In the third settlement of the area
after the French and Indian wars
Michael Mitton's descendants
