The Merrimack County town of Epsom was named for the market town in the county of Surry, England. Chartered in 1727, the community was settled soon after. Its early settlers included Charles McCoy, William Blazo, Andrew McClary, and Samuel Blake, and the early years of the town were marked by attacks from Native Americans, who still lived in the area around the town. Noah Martin, the 30th governor of New Hampshire, was born in Epsom, as was Major Andrew McClary, the highest ranking officer to die in the Battle of Bunker Hill, and the namesake of Fort McClary. Another Epsom native was John B. Sanborn, a Civil War general and state representative in Minnesota.
