Coventry School District Info

The land on which the Town of Coventry now stands was once part of the land belonging to the Narragansett Tribe of Indians. In 1642, Samuel Gorton and a group of men purchased from Indian Chief Miantonomi, a large section of land which included the present Towns of Coventry and West Warwick and most of the City of Warwick. This was known as the “SHAWOMET PURCHASE”. The price paid was 144 fathoms of wampum-peage, the equivalent of 36 pounds in English money. The original deed to this land shows the names of twelve men as purchasers, but by the time an attempt was made to divide the land, the number of purchasers has increased to seventeen.
