INTKODUCTION. 



The seven years, 1839 to 1835, covered by this volume, 
was a period of comparative indifference to progress, though 
the spirit of the new order of activity was being felt. The 
inventory for 1829 gave 196 taxpayers; that for 1835, 331, 
not including in either case the nonresidents. The taxes for 
the first year amounted to $932.01 (state, $107.60; county, 
$73.60; town, $750.81); for the last year, state, $173.50; 
county, $27.39; town, $853.62; total, $1,054.71. 

If the increase of population and business was slight, it 
could be already seen that it trended towards the settlement 
about the Falls, which awakened feelings of jealousy and 
rivalry on the part of those living in other parts of the town 
An attempt to repair the old meetinghouse and make of it 
a townhouse was voted down by those from "the new vil- 
lage" in 1832. Two years later the matter again came up 
for consideration and was rejected, but in 1836 a vote was 
taken to that effect. 

Boating on the Merrimack may be said to have reached its 
greatest volume during this period. Frederick G. Stark was 
agent of the boating company the entire time, or from 1822 
to 1837. His books show that for the month of October, 
1831, the river traffic amounted to $1,598.65. The quickest 
round trip from the Piscataquog river to Boston ever made 
on the river was in 1833, when Samuel Hall, John Eay, and 
Joseph M. Rowell performed the feat in four days. In 1833 
the Proprietors of Amoskeag Canal were first taxed for 
$18,000, and this was repeated with different amounts the 
two years following. It seems that this tax was not forth- 
coming, for in 1834 the town voted to collect the same, 
though there is no record to show the result. 

13 



14 INTRODUCTION. 

In 1834 the ten years' controversy over building the 
"Mammoth Eoad" through this town reached its climax, the 
court deciding that the road should be built. In one year 
(1833) the expense of fighting this highway amounted to 
more than the state, county, school, and highway taxes. 

The cotton manufacture, started at Amoskeag in 1809 by 
Benjamin Pritchard and three brothers named Ephraim, 
David, and Eobert Stevens, with changes in management 
from time to time, continued as a private enterprise, with 
varying results, until July 15, 1831, when the Amoskeag Man- 
ufacturing Company was incorporated with a capital of one 
million dollars. The incorporators were Oliver Dean, Ira 
Gay, Willard Sayles, Larned Pitcher, Lyman Tiffany, and 
Samuel Slater. Mr. Tiffany was made the first president. 
Mr. Gay was chosen clerk and Oliver Dean agent and treas- 
ure j*. 

In 1835 this company came into possession of the Isle 
of Hooksett Canal Companj', the Bow Canal Company, and 
the Union Locks Company, and the following year the 
Hooksett Manufacturing Company was acquired. That year 
the first brick mill upon the Merrimack was built at Hook- 
sett from material made in the yards close by. The increase 
of this new factor in the development extended in the years 
following. 

The smallpox breaking out in the household of Col. Josiah 
Stowell in 1834, at a special town meeting called to be seen 
what could be done, it was voted to establish a pesthouse. 
There is nothing to show that this vote was carried out more 
than to quarantine the home of Colonel Stowell. The dis- 
ease was brought from Lowell by one William Davis, who 
recovered. Four persons, two of whom were the aged parents 
of Mrs. Stowell, a young woman named Mary Brown, and 
a baby died. 

The town continued to hold money derived from the sale 
of the ministerial lot, and voted that the interest be paid for 
preaching, the sum to be divided equally between the Pres- 
byterian and Methodist societies. 



INTRODUCTION. 15 

Tythingmen were chosen through the entire period. No 
firewards were chosen in 1833 and 1834. For the first time 
in the records of the town no poundkeeper was elected in 
1834, and there was no one in 1835. No overseer of the poor 
was chosen in these years. The last sale of paupers was in 
1832. The first auditor was chosen in 1835. 

In 1829 the matter of schools again came to the front and 
the town voted to have a literary fund proportioned among 
the districts and authorized each to choose its own commit- 
tee. 

In 1795 a movement was started to establish a social 
library in town, and the first meeting was held in Decem- 
ber of that year. January 1, 1796, the first books were 
bought. This association continued for nearly forty years, 
when it ceased in 1833, the same year in which the first free 
public library was established at Peterborough. The Derry- 
field Social Library was the second in the state, one at Dover 
antedating it by a little over two years. 

The following lists comprise the town's leading officers of 
this period:

the census: 1775, 285; 1790, 362; 1800, 557; 1810, 615; 
1820, 761; 1830, 887; 1840, 3,325; nearly all of the rapid 
increase in the last decade having been made in the years 
1838 and 1839.
