Excerpt from Historical Address, Delivered at Hampton, New-Hampshire, on the 25th of December, 1838: In Commemoration of the Settlement of That Town, Having Elapsed Since That Event
The next year a settlement was commenced near the mouth of the Piscataqua, and another further up the river, at the place which subsequently received the name of Dover.
The principal object in the formation of these settlements, both of which were commenced under the patronage of Gorges, Mason, and several English merchants, styled the Company of Laconia, was to carry on the fishing business, which, it was thought, would prove very lucrative.
