Located on Massachusetts’ South Shore, Weymouth, Massachusetts, is a Greater Boston suburb with a population of almost 54,000 residents. It is the second-oldest European settlement in the state and its thirty-three percent of Irish residents make it the tenth-highest Irish population in the entire country. The town of Weymouth’s northernmost border is the location of Hingham Bay, one of the three small bays found in the outer portion of Boston Harbor, and home to several of the Boston Harbor Islands. Due to its proximity to the water and to Boston itself, Weymouth’s history is notable in its role in the American Revolution, where military posts were strategically established at Hingham Bay’s entrance. Weymouth was home to Abigail Smith Adams, the wife of second President John Adams and the mother of sixth President John Quincy Adams; the house in which she was born and raised was built in 1865 and has been preserved by the town as a testament to what a respected and instrumental woman she was during the early revolutionary period. Weymouth also played a role in World War II, producing many ships and submarines at Weymouth’s Fore River Shipyard. Presently, Weymouth is home to many spots for exciting outdoor activities, such as biking, canoeing, and camping at Webb State Memorial Park, hiking and birdwatching in the marshes of Great Esker Park, and summer days spent on George Lane Beach.
Weymouth is located in Norfolk County. The town’s District Court matters are handed at the neighboring Quincy District Court. Weymouth’s Probate Court matters are handled through the Norfolk Probate and Family Court in Canton, Massachusetts, while its Superior Court matters are heard in Norfolk Superior Court in Dedham, Massachusetts.
