Exponential growth of the Catholic Church in New England through the nineteenth century led to gradual reconfiguration of the ecclesiastical structure. * On 20 November 1843, Pope Gregory XVI erected the Diocese of Hartford, taking the states of Connecticut and Rhode Island and Barnstable, Bristol, Dukes, and Nantucket Counties of Massachusetts from the Diocese of Boston and making it a suffragan of the Archdiocese of Baltimore. * On 19 July 1850, Pope Pius IX elevated the Diocese of New York to a metropolitan archdiocese, assigning the Diocese of Boston, the Diocese of Hartford, the Diocese of Albany, and the Diocese of Buffalo as its suffragan sees. * On 29 July 1853, Pope Pius IX erected the Diocese of Burlington, taking the State of Vermont from the Diocese of Boston, and the Diocese of Portland, taking the states of Maine and New Hampshire from the Diocese of Boston. He designated both new dioceses as suffragans of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of New York.Page on Archdiocese of Boston on Catholic Hierarchy web site. * On 14 June 1870, Pope Pius IX erected the Diocese of Springfield, taking Worcester County and all counties of Massachusetts to the west thereof from the Diocese of Boston and making it a suffragan of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of New York. (The title of this diocese changed from Diocese of Springfield to Diocese of Springfield in Massachusetts when Pope Pius XI changed the title of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois|Diocese of Alton]] to Diocese of Springfield in Illinois on 26 October 1923.) * On 16 February 1872, Pope Pius IX erected the Diocese of Providence, taking the State of Rhode Island and the four counties of Massachusetts were part of the Diocese of Hartford from the latter diocese and making it a suffragan of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of New York. * On 12 February 1875, Pope Pius IX elevated the Diocese of Boston to a metropolitan archdiocese, designating the Diocese of Burlington, the Diocese of Hartford, the Diocese of Portland, the Diocese of Providence, and the Diocese of Springfield as suffragans of the new metropolitan see. The new metropolitan province thus encompassed the original territory of the Diocese of Boston. * On 15 April 1884, Pope Leo XIII erected the Diocese of Manchester, taking the State of New Hampshire from the Diocese of Portland and making it a suffragan of the Archdiocese of Boston. * On 12 March 1904, Pope Pius X erected the Diocese of Fall River, taking the four counties of Massachusetts that were part of the Diocese of Providence from that diocese and making it a suffragan of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Boston. * On 14 January 1950, Pope Pius XII erected the Diocese of Worcester, taking Worcester County from the Diocese of Springfield and making it a suffragan of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Boston. * On 06 August 1953, Pope Pius XII erected the Diocese of Bridgeport and the Diocese of Norwich, taking their territory from the Diocese of Hartford.
