David Block, Baseball Before We Knew It, page 224, lists new constitutions for the Granite BB Club of Manchester NH and the Quinnipiack BB Club of New Haven CT.

The Manchester Mirror and Farmer, April 28, 1860 reports that two "recently formed base ball clubs" will play tomorrow at "Fair Field" under NY rules. These two are undoubtedly the Granite and Manchester BBCs.  Same May 12, 1860 notes the Granite playing a practice game. Same May 5, 1860 notes the Granite BBC formally organized "last night," under the MA rules, with John P. Newell elected president.

Win/Loss Records As Far As We Now Know

Warning: Users should not rely on a team's won-loss record as a reflection of its "standing" among all base ball clubs. Team schedules were not balanced, and a good record against mostly weak opponents does not signify a leading club.
