Named for the Connecticut Saybrook Colony it is the only Saybrook Township statewide.
Saybrook Township was originally part of Austinburg Township and contained a settlement called Wrightsburg. It was not until 1816 that modern Saybrook Township became a separate township of its own. The township and community continued to be called Wrightsburg until 1827 when the name was changed to Saybrook, its new name coming from Saybrook, Connecticut. The early settlers are listed in the 1820 census for Ashtabula County with the township recorded as Wrightsburg.
The Saybrook Township lands were originally owned by Connecticut Land Company investor William Hart. Hart then sold the entire township, with the exception of one lot, to Josiah Wright and his son Samuel Wright of Pownal, Vermont, in 1811. The deed for this sale is recorded in the Ashtabula County Courthouse in Jefferson, Ohio.
Even though the Wrights were early owners of Saybrook Township, they were not the first settlers.The first settler in Saybrook Township was George Webster, a New Yorker who came in 1810.
In 1833, Saybrook Township contained one store, three taverns, a saw mill, and a carding machine.
