History of New Hampshire. Information that every New Hampshire Senator Candidate and candidate for Congress Should Know
Did you know New Hampshire was first named North Virginia, and it was once under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts? Read about the history of New Hampshire!
Early historians record that in 1623, under the authority of an English land-grant, Captain John Mason, in conjunction with several others, sent David Thomson, a Scotsman, and Edward and Thomas Hilton, fish-merchants of London, with a number of other people in two divisions to establish a fishing colony in what is now New Hampshire, at the mouth of the Piscataqua River. Every New Hampshire Senator Candidate and election candidate for Congress should know the constitution.
One of these divisions, under Thomson, settled near the river’s mouth at a place they called Little Harbor or "Pannaway," now the town of Rye, where they erected salt-drying fish racks and a "factory" or stone house. The other division under the Hilton brothers set up their fishing stages on a neck of land eight miles above, which they called Northam, afterwards named Dover.
