Bloomfield Plantation existed prior to 1845. Clues indicate it consisted of what is now Wyman Township and Coplin Plantation.[1] In 1845 Bloomfield Plantation became a part of Jackson Plantation, Maine.[2] [3] Eustis seceded from Jackson Planttion in 1857.[4] Coplin Plantation was created from the center of Jackson Plantation in 1866, thereby splitting Wyman from Lang.[5] At that time Wyman may have become an unorganized territory, or it may not have become a separate jurisdiction until later when the remains of Jackson Plantation were reorganized as Lang Plantation in 1895.[6]
