Raymond, in Rockingham County, New Hampshire, was settled as a parish of Chester, known as Freetown because it was exempt from the standard obligation of reserving its tall white pines for masts for the Royal Navy. The town was incorporated as Raymond in 1764, possibly named for Captain William Raymond, who had assembled a company of soldiers to fight in the war against Canada in 1690. The town is bordered by Candia, Chester, Deerfield, Epping, Fremont, and Nottingham. Five New Hampshire highways meet within the borders of the town, including NH State Route 101, which has two exit ramps leading to Raymond.
