Welcome to the Salisbury, New Hampshire USGenWeb Page. The name of Salisbury is derived from the Latin salus,
which signifies safety, or health, and the Anglo-Saxon "bury", or "burgh", a corporate
town, - hence, the town of health and safety. It was named directly from Salisbury, Mass., which was so called
from Salisbury, England.
It is situated in latitude 43° 23', on the west bank of the Merrimack and Pemigewasset Rivers,
sixteen miles north of Concord and eighty miles from Boston. It was originally bounded north by Andover, east by
the rivers, above named, south by Boscawen and Warner and what was Kearsarge Gore, and contains twenty-eight thousand
six hundred acres.
