Religion

Some of the various religious denominations, presently  in this county,  are Congregationalist, Episcopalians, Quakers, Presbyterians, Calvinistic Baptists, Freewill Baptists, Methodists, Universalists and Shakers.

According to the men of the Massachusetts Colony, all of our ancestors were  nothing more than godless, lawless persons. Town records and histories seem to contradict that statement and instead indicate that all proprietors interested in the early settlements were of the "Established Church" and it was only natural that those whose came out with them would be also.

Names appearing on the early colonial records; Gorges and Mason, Godfrie and Neal, Gibbons and Chadbourne and Williams, were no doubt of this faith.

The following pages will be a start to  help with questions that may have  been  raised about  religion in Carroll County New Hampshire when it was first settled.

Was your ancestor one of the many ministers of the time?
