The small town of Lyman is in Grafton County, New Hampshire. Along with Grantham, Lisbon, and eleven other Vermont towns, Lyman was granted as compensation to General Phineas Lyman, a commander in the French and Indian War. In 1761, the land was granted to Daniel Lyman and sixty-three others, eleven of which were Lymans. Bearing their name, Lyman was incorporated as a town in 1761. Although the grantees failed to comply with the requirements of the grant, an extension was given them in 1769. Due to a boundary dispute, the town was made part of New Hampshire. Lyman is northwest of Lisbon and southeast of Barnet, with its population area concentrated along Clough Hill Road, just east of Parker Hill Road.
