The Bagley family arrived in the American colonies about 1642. The research of Dr. Norton Russell Bagley and his sister, Martha (Bagley) Anderson, builds on the tradition that three Bagley brothers came to Boston; Orlando, Samuel, and Thomas. Dr. Bagley notes that the members of the Orlando line settled in Amesbury, Massachusetts, where they were selectmen, sheriffs, and town clerks.Some of Orlando's descendants spread to Kingston and Candia, New Hampshire, and then to the Eastern Townships of Canada. Some refused to take allegiance to the King of England and came back into upper New York and ended up in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Another branch went to Maine and settled in Durham, Liberty, and Montville, and then on to Down East and Washington County, Maine, to Jonesport and Machias and beyond. Another branch from New Hampshire went to Vermont, to Hartland, and hence to Durham and Cairo, New York, and then to Pennsylvania, Ohio, and to other states of the old Northwest, and from there to the West Coast. A few were found in the South.
