 Early New Hampshire Town Records
DEEDS and NH Links

"The microfilm collection of Early New Hampshire Town Records is an important resource for researching families who lived in the Granite State more than a century and a half ago.

Many of the collection's 363 reels contain two and even three volumes, and they are available at the Genealogy and Local History Room at the
New Hampshire State Library
or through the numerous Family History Centers of the Church of Latter-day Saints.

The NH State Library staff will also accept reasonable requests for searches of the records by phone (603-271-6823), fax (603-271-2205), e-mail and traditional mail NHSL Genealogy Section 20 Park St., Concord NH, 03301.

If the information is found, the library will send 8.5 x 11 photocopies of the images at 10 cents per sheet with a one dollar minimum for mailing the information via USPS."


Carroll County was created by an act of the state legislature approved December 23, 1840. In part the act stated that Carroll county would include the following towns which had previously made up part of Strafford. These towns were: Albany, Brookfield, Chatham, Conway, Eaton, Effingham, Freedom, Moultonborough, Sandwich, Tamworth, Tuftonborough, Ossipee, Wakefield and Wolfeborough. In 1853, Bartlett, Jackson, and Hart's Location were disannexed from Cos county and became part of Carroll county.

Carroll county received its name in commemoration of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Strafford county, from which Carroll county was formed, was one of the five original counties of New Hampshire. The five included Rockingham, Hillsborough, Cheshire, and Grafton.

Town organizations introduced the law and order of old communities. Four towns had duly elected selectmen in 1773. Conway elected Abiel LOVEJOY and John WEBSTER; Sandwich, Bagley WEED and Daniel BEEDE; Moultonborough, Bradbury RICHARDSON and John ADAMS; Wolfeborough, Benjamin FOLSOM, Thomas TAYLOR, and James CONNOR.




                                        Deed Index                                           
This index is from 1773-1815 time era when Strafford County encompassed these areas. Many of these deeds are for individuals from Ossipee, Sandwich, Tamworth, Wolfeboro and Wakefield areas. You may want to check them out.

On a personal note....
The ladies that do the Strafford Co. website really deserve our thanks. They have spent HOURS of their time transcribing records and documents. Sometimes we all forget to say thank-you. Let me be the first to extend my thanks to both of them-
Cathy Parziale and Kathy Leigh
