MANCHESTER lies in the eastern part of the county, and is bounded as follows:  On the north by Merrimack County, on the east and south by Rockingham County, and on the west by Bedford and Goffstown.

This territory was originally occupied by the Amoskeag Indians, a tribe subject to the Penacooks, who dwelt around Amoskeag Falls.  The Native Americans, however, did not remain here until the arrival of the English colonists.  Probably forty years elapsed between the time that the Native People left their much-loved fisheries at the falls, before the first permanent resident from the English colonies arrived.

The First English Colonial Settlement, ca. 1722: Biographical Sketches

--To John GOFFE, Jr., Edward LINGFIELD and Benjamin KIDDER is ascribed the honor of having been the first English Colonial settlers within the limits of the present town of Manchester.  They located in 1722 and erected habitations on Cohas Brook.

The excellent fisheries at this point soon attracted the attention of other enterprising pioneers, and not many years elapsed before the locality witnessed a large (for that early era) influx of settlers, anxious to rear their homes at the "fishing at Ammosceg."  Among these were Robert ANDERSON, Benjamin BLODGETT, David DICKEY, Charles EMERSON, William GAMBLE, Benjamin HADLEY, John HALL, Thomas HALL, Ephraim HILDRETH, Benjamin KIDDER, Barber LESLIE, Mr. & Mrs. Michael McCLINTOCK, Alexander McMURPHY, Jr., John & Christiana McNEIL, Nathaniel MARTIN, William NUTT, William PERHAM,  John RIDELL, Archibald STARK and Benjamin STEVENS.

Of these early settlers nearly all were active, enterprising men, while some were possessed of marked abiblity, and subsequently became thoroughly identified with the public enterprises, of their day, in this section of the Merrimack Valley.  Many of these early settlers were from Londonderry, and were of Scot-Irish extraction.


JOHN GOFFE was an influential man in the new settlement, and had a son, John, who became a distinguished officer in the French and Indian War.

BENJAMIN KIDDER doubtless came here about 1722 with his father-in-law, John GOFFE, as he was a grantee of Londonderry in that year.  He probably was originally of Billerica.  He entered in the company under the famous Captain LOVEWELL, int he expedition against Pequauquauke, and while on the march, and inthe neighborhood of Ossipee Lake, was taken sick.  It is probable that he did not long survive the hardships and exposures of this expedition.  His son, John KIDDER, was named as a legatee in the will of his grandfather, John GOFFE, Esq., made in 1748.

EDWARD LINGFIELD--Very little is known of Edward LINGFIELD.  He married a daughter of John GOFFE, Esq., and settled in the Manchester area about 1722.  He was a corporal in Lovewell's expedition, was one of th thirty-four men who marched from Ossipee Lake to Pequauquauke, and took part in that famous battle, where he fought with great bravery.  He was one of the nine men in that battle "who received no considerable wounds."  After his return from that expedition, he received an ensign's commission as a reward of his heroic conduct in the battle of Pequauquauke.

ARCHIBALD STARK was born at Glasgow, in Scotland, in 1693.  Soon after graduating at the university, he moved to Londonderry, in the north of Ireland, becoming what was usually denoted a "Scotch-Irishman."  There he was married to a poor, but beautiful Scottish girl, by the name of Eleanor NICHOLS, and emigrated to America.  He at first settled in Londonderry, where he remained until some time in 1736, when, having his house burned, he removed to that portion of land upon th Merrimack then known as Harrytown, upon a lot that had been granted to Samuel THAXTER by the government of Massachusetts, and which was situated upon the hill upon the east bank of the Merrimack, a short distance above the falls of Namaoskeag.  Here he resided until his death.  An educated man, STARK must have had a strong desire that his children should enjoy the advantages of an education; but in a wilderness, surrounded by enemies, and upon a soil not the most inviting, the sustenance and protection of his family demanded his attention rather more than their education.  His children, however, were instructed at the fireside in the rudiments of an English education, and such principles were instilled into them as, accompanied with energy, courage and decision of character, made them fit actors in the stirring events of that period.  His education fitted him rathr for the walks of civil life; but yet we find him a volunteer for the protection of the frontier against the ravages of the Indians, in 1745.  For the protection of the people in this immediate neighborhood, a fort was built at the outlet of Swager's or Fort Pond, which, out of compliment to Mr. STARK's enterprise in building and garrisoning the same, was called Stark's Fort.

Mr. STARK had seven children--four sons and three daughters.  His four sons:  William, John, Archibald and Samuel, were noted soldiers in the Indian and French wars, and the three oldest had distinguished themselves as officers in the notable corps of Rangers prior to their father's death.  The second son, John, became the famous partisan officer in the Revolution, and as a brigadier won unfading laurels at the battle of Bennington.  Mr. STARK died the 25th day of June, 1758, aged sixty-one years.

JOHN HALL came to this country probably after 1730.  He tarried some time in Londonderry, and then moved upon a lot of land near the west line of Chester, and in that part of the town afterwards set off to form the town of Derryfield.  He was an energetic business man, and for a series of years transacted much of the public business of this neighborhood and town.  He kept a public-house until his death.  The original frame house built by him, but added to according to business and fashion, until little of the original could be recognized, was standing until 1852, when it was destroyed by fire.  It had always been kept as a public-house, and generally by some one of the name.

Mr. HALL was the agent of the inhabitants for obtaining the charter of Derryfield, in 1751, and was the first town clerk under that charter.  He was elected to that office fifteen years, and in one and the same year was moderator, first selectman and town clerk.

WILLIAM GAMBLE and MICHAEL McCLINTOCK--William GAMBLE came to this country in 1722, aged fourteen years.  He and two elder brothres, Archibald and Thomas, and a sister, Mary, started together for America, but the elder brothers were pressed into the British service upon the oint of sailing, leaving the boy William and his sister to make the voyage alone.  William was saved from the press-gang alone by the ready exercise of "woman's wit."  The GAMBLEs had started under the protection of Mr. and Mrs. Michael McCLINTOCK, who resided in the same neighborhood, and were about to emigrate to New England.  Upon witnessing the seizure of the elder brothers, Mrs. McCLINTOCK called to William GAMBLE, "Come here, Billy, quickly," and upon Billy approaching her, she continued, "Snuggle down here, Billy," and she hid him under the folds of her capacious dress!  There he remained safely until the gang had searched the house for the boy in vain, and retired in high dudgeon at their ill sucess.

Upon coming to this country, the McCLINTOCKs came to Londonderry.  They were industrious, thriving people, and Michael and William, his son, built the first bridge across the Cohoes, and also another across the Little Cohoes, on the road from Amoskeag to Derry.  These bridges were built in 1738, and were probably near where bridges were still maintained, across the same streams on the "old road to Derry," ca. 1885.  The McCLINTOCKs were voted twenty shillings a year for ten years for the use of these bridges.

William GAMBLE, upon his arrival in Boston, went to work on the ferry from Charleston to Boston.  Here he remained two years.  During the Indian War of 1745, he joined several "scouts," and uon the commencement of the "Old French War," in 1755, having lost his wife, he enlisted in the regular service, and was in most of the war, being under WOLFE on the "Plains of Abraham."

JOHN McNEIL came to Londonderry with the first emigrants in 1719.  The McNEILS of Scotland, and in the north of Ireland, were men of known reputation for bravery, and Daniel McNEIL was one of the Council of the city of Londonderry, and has the honor, with twenty-one others of that body, of withstanding the duplicity and treachery of Lundy, the traitorous Governor, and affixing their signatures to a resolution to stand by each other in defense of the city, which resolution, placarded upon the market-house and read at the head of the battalions in the garrison, led to the successful defense of the city.

John McNEIL was a lineal descendant of this councilor.  Becoming involved in a quarrel with a person of distinction in his neighborhood, who attacked him in the highway, McNEIL knocked him from his horse, and left him to be cared for by his retainers.  This encounter, though perfectly justifiable on the part of Mr. McNEIL, as his antagonist was the attacking party, made his tarry in Ireland unpleasant, if not unsafe, and he emigrated to America, and settled in Londonderry.  Here he established a reputation not only as a man of courage, but one of great strength, and neither white or Indian man upon the borders dared to risk a hand-to-hand encounter with him.  Measuring six feet and a half in height, with a corresponding frame, and stern, unbending will, he was a fit outpost, as it were, of civilization, and many are the traditions of his personal encounters during a long and eventful border life.  His wife, Christiana, was well mated with him, of strong frame and great energy and courage.  It is related that upon one occasion, a stranger came to the door and inquired for McNEIL.  Christiana told him that her "gude mon" was not at home.  Upon which the stranger expressed much regret.  Christiana inquired as to the business upon which he came, and the stranger told her he had heard a great deal of the strength of McNEIL and his skill in wrestling, and had come some considerable distance to throw him.  "And troth, mon," said Christiana McNEIL, "Johnny is gone, but I'm not the woman to see ye disappointed, an' I think if ye'll try mon, I'll throw ye meself."  The stranger, not liking to be thus bantered by a woman, accepted the challenge, and, sure enough, Christiana tripped his heels and threw him upon the ground.  The stranger, upon getting up, thought he would not wait for "Johnny," but left without deigning to leave his name.

The Fisheries at Amoskeag

The fisheries at Amoskeag Falls became famous throughout the adjacent country early on.  There salmon, shad, the alewife and lamprey eel were found in great abundance.  Judge POTTER, in his "History of Manchester," related the following:

   "The fishing at Amoskeag was of greatest importance to the people.  Tradition has it that the Rev. Mr. McGREGORE was the first person of the Londonderry settlement to visit the Falls, led thither by curiosity, and prompted by information obtained at Andover as to their grandeur and the abundance of fish to be found near them at certain seasons of the year.  From this fact originated the custom of presenting Mr. McGREGORE and his successors the first fruits of the fishing season.  The first fish caught by any man of Londonderry, salmon, shad, alewife or eel, was reseerved as a gift to 'the minister.'
     "As early as 1729, a road was laid out and built from Ninian COCHRAN's house (in Londonderry), 'then keeping by or near the old path to Amosceeg Falls.'  And another road was laid out at the same time intersecting the 'Ammosceeg road,' for the accommodation of other sections of the town.  This undertaking of building a road some ten miles through the wilderness, in the infancy of that colony, shows of how great importance the fishing at Ammosceeg was considered by the people of Londonderry; and it was natural that they should be strenuous in maintaining their claim to the lands adjacent.  Accordingly, we find their claim to the lands and the subject of the fisheries connected with them matters acted upon in their town-meetings at an early date."
     On the day of the meeting, April 22, 1731, the following action was had...:
     "4thly.  That in order to the safety of our town's people at the fishing at Ammosceeg the selectmen is empowered to allow and pay out of the public charge or rates of the town three pounds in Bills of credit to such person or persons as shall be obliged to make two good sufficient canoos, the selectmen obliging the aforesaid undertakers to serve the Inhabitants of the town the whole time fishing before any out town's people, and shall not eceed one shill per hundred for all the fish that they shall ferry over fromt he Islands and the owner of the fish and his attendants is to be ferried backwards and forwards at free cost."

The settlers took the fish with spears, scoop-nets and seines, and in large quantities; so that people coming from the surrounding country with their wagons and carts could get them filled sometimes for the carting the shad away, to make room for the salmon, and always for a mere trifling price.  Immense quantities of shad were taken at one haul or drag of the seine.  The New Hampshire Gazette, of May 23, 1760, had the following item under its editorial head:
     "One day last week, was drawn by a net at one Draught, Two Thousand Five hundred odd Shad Fish, out of the River Merrimack near Bedford, in this Province.  Thought remarkable by some people."

Among the names given to the various fishing-places were the following:  Eel Falls, Fire Mill, Todd Gut, Russ Ray's Hooking-Place, South Gut, Thompson Place, Watching Falls, Little Pulpit, Mudget Place, Slash Hole, Point Rock, Black Rock, Swine's Back, Snapping-Place, Pulpit, Hacket's Stand, Sullivan's Point, Crack in the Rock, Bat Place, Dalton Place, Puppy Trap, Pot Place, Patten Rock, Setting Place, Maple Stump, The Colt, Salmon Rock, Eel Trap, Salmon Gut and Mast Rock.


Charter of Derryfield

Tha town of Manchester, embracing portions of the towns of Londonderry and Chester, and a tract of land lying on the Merrimack River, belonging to the Masonian proprietors, called "Harrytown," was chartered September 3, 1751, under the name of "Derryfield."  This name is said to have been derived from the fact that the people of Londonderry had been accustomed to pasture their cattle within its limits.  The charter was as follows:


     "George the second by the grace of God, of Great Britain, France and Ireland King, Defender of the Faith, &c., and to all whom these presents shall come.


     "Whereas, our loyal subjects inhabitants of a tract of land within our province of New Hampshire aforesaid, lying partly within that part of our province of New Hampshire called Londonderry in part, and in part in Chester, and in part of land not heretofore granted to any town within our province aforesaid, have humbly petitioned and requested to us that they may be erected and incorporated into a township, and infranchised with the same powers and privileges which other towns within our said province by law have and enjoy; and it appearing to us to be conducive to the general good of our said province, as well as of said inhabitants in particular, by maintaining good order, and encouraging the cultivation of the land, that the same should be done; Know Ye, therefore, that we, of our especial grace, certain knowledge and for the encouragement and promoting the good purposes and ends aforesaid, by and with the advice of our trusty and well-beloved Bennington Wentworth, Esq., our Governor and Commander in Chief, and of our Council of our Province of New Hampshire aforesaid, have erected and ordained, and by these presents, for ourselves and successors, do will and ordain, that the inhabitants of a (the) tract of land aforesaid, shall inhabit and improve thereon hereafter butted and bounded as follows, viz. :  Beginning at a pitch pine tree standing upon the town line, between Chester and Londonderry, marked one hundred and thirty-four, being the bounds of one of the sixty-acre lots in said Chester, being the South West corner of said lot; thence running south into the township of Londonderry one hundred and sixty rods to a stake and stones; thence running west to Londonderry North and South line; thence running South upon Londonderry line to the Head line of Litchfield to a stake and stones; thence running upon the head line of Litchfield to the Bank of the Merimack river; thence running up said river, as the river runs eight miles to a stake and stones standing upon the bank of said river; thence running East South East one mile and three quarters, through land not granted to any town, until it comes to Chester line; thence running two miles and a half and fifty-two rods on the same course into the township of Chester, to a stake and stones; thence running south four miles and a half to the bounds first mentioned, all which lands within said bounds which lies within the townships of Londonderry and Chester aforesaid, are not to be liable to pay any taxes or rates, but as they shall be settled, and by these presents are declared and ordained to be a town corporated, and are hereby erected and incorporated into a body politick, and a corporation to have continuance forever by the name of Derryfield, with all the powers, authorities, privileges, immunities and infranchises to them the said inhabitants and their successors forever, always reserving to us, our heirs, and successors, all white pine trees growning and being, or that shall hereafter grow and be on the said tract of land, fit for the use of our Royal Navy, reserving also the power of dividing said town to us, our heirs and successors, when it shall appear necessary and convenient for the benefit of the inhabitants thereof, and as the several towns within our said province of New Hampshire, are by law thereof entitled and authorized to assemble, and by the majority of votes to choose all said officers as are mentioned in the said laws.

                                                 "PER THEODORE ATKINSON, Sec'y."

 This charter covered about eighteen square miles of the southwest part of Chester, about nine square miles of the northwest part of Londonderry, including The Peak, and the strip of land between Londonderry, Chester and the Merrimack River, called Harrytown, containing about eight square miles.

This charter did not embrace the whole of what was known as Harrytown, a nook at the north part, betwixt Chester and the Merrimack being left ungranted.  This contained about two square miles, was called Harrysborough, and was added to Derryfield in 1792.

The act of incorporation empowered John McMURPHY to call the first town meeting, which was held at the house of John HALL, inn-holder, Septembre 23, 1751, as follows:
