Not to add to the confusion . . . but to clear it up, hopefully, TRURO is not in Maine. It is a Town located in Massachusetts at Cape Cod in Barnstable County. The historical references I have indicate that it was, indeed, named after Truro, England. The State of Maine was, prior to its separation/statehood in 1820, was generally referred to as the "District of Maine" or "Province of Maine". There were others, but these seem to be the most common. As I understand based on the limited research I have made to date(don't hold me to exact details here), some members of the Strout family relocated from Truro/Provincetown/Eastham to the Province of Maine @ Cape Elizabeth (now South Portland) in the late 1600's or early 1700's, and, then some further relocated to Limington, Maine (and other places).
