Eddy and most of the town's other original settlers were from Nova Scotia, where they had supported the rebel cause against the majority British Loyalist population. Failing in their attempt make Nova Scotia the 14th colony to join the revolution, they emigrated to the District of Maine and were given land grants in present-day Eddington. As of the 2000 census, the town had a total population of 2,052.
