Hampstead (N.H.: Town)


Hampstead, New Hampshire was once part of Haverhill and Amesbury, Massachusetts and was settled in 1649. The town was formed as a result of the 1739 decision fixing the boundary line between Massachusetts and New Hampshire. It was originally known as "Timberlane Parish" because of the heavy growth of native trees. The town would be incorporated in 1749 by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth, who renamed it after Hampstead, England.
