Bloomfield Plantation was organized from T1 R3 WBKP (Coplin Plantation) and T4 R3 BKP WKR (Wyman Township) in 1841.[1] [2] In 1845 Bloomfield Plantation became a part of Jackson Plantation, Maine.[3] [4] Eustis seceded from Jackson Planttion in 1857.[5] Coplin Plantation was created from the center of Jackson Plantation in 1866, thereby splitting Wyman from Lang.[6] At that time Wyman may  have become an unorganized territory (township), or it may not  have become a separate jurisdiction until later  when the remains of Jackson Plantation were reorganized at last as Lang Plantation in 1895.[7]
