      town (township), New Haven county, southwestern Connecticut, U.S. It lies along the Naugatuck River near New Haven. (New Haven) The area was settled about 1678 as part of Derby on land purchased from the Pequot Indians, who called it Naugatuck. It was known successively as Rimmon (1670); Chusetown (1735), for a local Indian chief; and Humphreyville (1805), for General David Humphreys. Humphreys imported Merino sheep from Spain to improve local breeds, established paper and woolen mills, and created a “model village.” Other industries developed, including the first mohair plush made in the United States, which was produced in Seymour in 1880 by John Tingue. The town was incorporated in 1850 and was renamed for Thomas H. Seymour, then governor of Connecticut. Agriculture and the manufacture of copper and brass products are economically important. Area 15 square miles (38 square km). Pop. (1990) 14,288; (2000) 15,454.

      town, central Victoria, Australia, on the Goulburn River. Founded in 1837 and proclaimed a town in 1841, it was named after Edward Adolphus Seymour, 12th Duke of Somerset and first lord of the Admiralty. The town developed as a river-crossing point. Now a focus of road (Hume and Goulburn Valley highways) and rail lines, Seymour is also the site of an auxiliary airport for Melbourne, which lies 60 miles (100 km) south. The district has cattle, sheep, and cereal farming, granite quarrying, and lumbering. Its industries include a slaughterhouse, gas plants, and bulk petroleum storage. Puckapunyal (11 miles [18 km] west), an important military-training base during World War II, is still active. Pop. (2001) urban centre, 6,422.
