History

This too made him quite popular in New England. The name of the town is correctly pronounced without the 'h' ("AM-erst"), unlike some other towns of the same name.

The earliest known document of the lands now comprising Amherst is the deed of purchase dated December 1658 between John Pynchon of Springfield, Massachusetts and three native inhabitants, referred to as Umpanchla, Quonquont and Chickwalopp. Many colonial governors at the time were scattering his name amidst the influx of new town applications, which is why several towns in the Northeast bear the name. Among the new names suggested for the town has been "Emily" after Emily Dickinson (see Notable Residents below). It is for this reason that there have been occasional 'ad hoc' movements to rename the town.
