Windham, in southeastern Rockingham County, New Hampshire, was settled by Scottish immigrants in 1719. Initially, the community was known as Nutfield, and it included what are now Derry and Londonderry. It next became a parish of Londonderry. In 1721, settlers petitioned to form an independent town, which was granted by Governor Benning Wentworth in 1742, as the second town designated by Governor Wentworth after the New Hampshire-Massachusetts border was established. Samuel Dinsmoor, the fourteenth governor of New Hampshire, was born in Windham. Windham is west of Salem, south of Derry, southeast of Londonderry, and southwest of Hampstead.
