  • Tags: John Larwill

- John C. Larwill: This man was one of Wooster’s earliest settlers, along with his brothers William and Joseph. In 1820 he became Wooster’s first Justice of the Peace. (“Biography of John Larwill” by Ben Douglas for the Wooster Republican)

John Larwill was among the first surveyors and also holds the title of constructing the house in Wooster, which once stood in a space now occupied by a paint store.

John Larwill came with his brothers to Wooster in 1807. Contemporary historian Ben Douglas reported that Larwill became Wooster's Justice of the Peace in 1820 and married sixty-two couples during his tenure.

The Larwill brothers, John Bever, and William Henry laid out the town center and main streets of Wooster in 1808.
