Wyman Township was once part of Jackson Plantation shown in red overlaid on this map of modern Franklin County.

What is now Wyman Township was part of Bloomfield Plantation prior to 1845.[1] Then it became part of Jackson Plantation from 1845 to at least 1866. From 1866 to 1895 it is unclear if what is now Wyman remained part of Jackson Plantation which went extinct in 1895, or became a separate unorganized territory (township) as early as 1866.[2]
