North Kingstown was first settled in 1674 and officially incorporated as a town on March 4, 1722. It is named for King George I of Great Britain. The area was originally inhabited by the Sakonnet tribe of the Algonquian peoples, who fished and farmed around Narragansett Bay. They were decimated during conflicts with English colonists in the early colonial period (see also King Philip's War). The Rhode Island colony had established settlements at Portsmouth (1638) and Newport (1639), but it wasn't until Roger Williams' founding of Providence Plantations that North Kings Towne began to develop into an important settlement along Narragansett Bay .
