North Hampton, in Rockingham County, New Hampshire, was part of Hampton when it was first settled in 1639, and known variously as North Hill or North Parish. In 1719, residents began petitioning for separation from Hampton, but it wasn’t improved until 1742, when Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth created thew new town after the area was separated from Massachusetts. Although most of the town is inland, a small portion of the township is on the Atlantic seacoast, which includes the Little Boar’s Head Historic District. Alvan T. Fuller, the 50th governor of Massachusetts, summered at Little Boar’s Head. North Hampton is, not surprisingly, north of Hampton. It is also east of Exeter and south of Greenland.
