Charlotte, Maine
What's this got to do with Vance's? Read on.

Charlotte, Maine

In 1824, the inhabitants of the unorganized plantation first met to petition the State Legislature to organize as a town. It has been suggested that Charlotte was the first choice of names for the new town because the people wanted it named after King George III’s Queen Charlotte. This did not sit well with Maine’s Legislature.

When the Committee on Incorporation of Towns first met on the subject in January, 1825, the name “Charlotte” was opposed, because many were still hostile toward Britain. In a creative solution to the problem, Legislative member William Vance asked that the town be named after his wife, Charlotte Mulholland Vance, instead. Opposition to the name faded, and on January 19, 1825 Plantation III became the town of Charlotte.
