INTRODUCTION. 



The period covered by this volume of Early Records, which 
for reasons that must be obvious has been styled "]\Ianches- 
ter" instead of "Derrj'field," presents many features of in- 
terest. During this interval of sixteen years we see more 
clearly than heretofore the yielding of old ideas and princi- 
ples to the ever-changing influences of progress. We begin 
to realize the touch of that power which was to build the 
future city. 

In 1803 the first vote was taken relative to securing 
females for teachers, but it was not considered advisable. 
Post guides or sign boards were first mentioned at this time. 

In 1804 the town voted to have a singing school, but raised 
no money towards its support. 

The year 1805 marks the agitation of separating the church 
from town affairs, and no money was voted at the annual 
meeting for preaching, but two men were elected to sing in 
meeting. The following years money was raised until 1813, 
when the list of taxes was made up without the customary 
"minister's tax." After this the matter was discussed more 
forcibly, and in 1816 no money was voted for preaching. 

In 1806 the town was divided into eight highway districts. 

May 1, 1807, is a memorable date in the history of Man- 
chester, as it witnessed the opening of the Blodget canal 
around Amoskeag Falls. This important event marked the 
accomplishment of the greatest engineering feat, considering 
the time, experience and available means, that has been 
effected in New England. The fulfillment of this dream of 
its projector and builder, Hon. Samuel Blodget, after thir- 
teen years of anxious toil, the expenditure of a large per- 

15 



Ifi INTRODUCTION. 

sonal estate and considerable sums of public funds, was the 
beginning of a new era for the town upon the banks of the 
Merrimack. In 1814 the first boat came up the river, and 
from that day began this industry of boating, and the traf- 
fic increased in volume and importance until the Merrimack 
became the greatest maritime highway in New England. 

In 1808 the first public action was taken in regard to 
protection from fires, when "firewards" were chosen. That 
year also marks the beginning of the use of a new material 
in building, and surveyors of brick were chosen. 

Another important event in this period was in 1810, 
when Thomas Stickney, grandson of Hon. Samuel Blodget, 
started the first manufacturing in this vicinity otherwise than 
saw mills. 

In June a petition was sent to the state legislature to have 
the name of the town changed to "Manchester" out of re- 
spect to the suggestion of Judge Blodget, who had predicted 
that it would eventually become a rival to the city by that 
name in England. 

This year the first "Clerk of the Market" was chosen. 
Overseers of the poor were first chosen at this meeting also. 

In 1811 a petition to allow the town separate representa- 
tion was made and granted. 

That echo of the Eevolution, the War of 1812, occurred 
during this period, Manchester doing her part, though as yet 
I have been unable to find the roll of her soldiers. 

March 8, 1814, it was first voted to open town meeting 
with prayer. The fishing interests continued to be an impor- 
tant question to settle at town meetings and fishwards were 
chosen during the entire period. 

In 1800 the state tax was $59.13; county tax, $12.95; town 

tax, $180.47. In 1816 these taxes were respectively $92.80, 

$44.34, $299.23.

* At the June session of the leg'islatiire this petition was re- 
ceived and the request granted. The new name was taken out 
of respect to the prediction of the late Judge Samuel Blodget, 
■who had declared that here was to come into existence a city 
to rival that noted manufacturing- town by the name in England. 
A factory had already been built, though the population of the 
town at this time was onlj'^ six hundred and fifteen. Thomas 
Stickney, who was prominent in the change of the name, and in 
the affairs of that day, was a grandson of Judge Blodget, and 
lived at the old Blodget homestead. — Editor,

INDEX. 



INDEX OF NAMES OF PERSONS. 



It Is not claimed that the following Personal Index is free from errors, as the 
compiler has found it impossible always to separate certain names from others, and 
to place all persons just where they belong. This has been mainly due to the loose 
manner of using the term"' Junior," where two or more generations bore the same 
patronymic. In the majority of cases the son ceased to retain the suftix that 
was in reality a part of his name, and which some law should compel a son to retain 
during life. The places where mistakes have most likely occurred have been with 
the Halls and Haseltines. There is likely a mix-up with Philip Haseltine, Jr., and 
Joiner. It is believed the Starks have been given proper relations. The spelling 
of names without rule or license has also given cause for confusion.— Editok.
