Stockport is a village in Morgan County, Ohio, United States, along the Muskingum River. The population was 503 at the 2010 census.

History[edit]

The town is named after the town in England of the same name. The area was part of what was called the Donation Tract in the Northwest Territory, a portion of 100,000 acres for which Congress authorized grants of 100 acres in 1792 to any male 18 years of older who would settle the land at the time of deed. Congress was seeking to support the development and settlement of adjacent lands owned by the Ohio Company of Associates. The Donation Tract was designed for quick settlement and to serve as a buffer for the Company lands from Native American raids. Several tribes had allied in the Northwest Territory in an effort to expel European-American settlers, and armed conflicts had been underway since 1785.
