Some history books claim that Ellsworth was originally inhabited by members of the Passamaquoddy Indians and the Penobscot Indians. Modern historians claim that Norsemen and possibly other sailors explored the coast before the time of Columbus and may have settled there. However, the earliest recorded European settlers in this area were the French, perhaps as early as the 1500s. Of course, the British followed and throughout the seventeenth century and part of the eighteenth century, the British and French battled for ownership rights.
