In north-central VT, north of Montpelier; organized Oct 26, 1835 from Orleans, Franklin, Washington, and Chittenden counties. Name Origin: For the Lamoille River, which runs through it; a corruption of French la mouette 'the seagull,' the name given to the river by Champlain. The 1744 Charlevois map of discoveries in America showed the river as La Mouelle owing to an engraver's neglecting to cross the tts; with spelling variations.
