About Richmond

This territory was first granted in 1735 to a company of soldiers returning from the war in Canada led by Captain Joseph Sylvester, and named Sylvester-Canada in his honor. When New Hampshire because a separate province, Governor Benning Wentworth reincorporated those towns with Canada in the name. Sylvester-Canada was granted to new settlers and incorporated in 1752 as Richmond, in honor of the governor's English friend, Charles Lennox, Duke of Richmond, a staunch advocate of colonial independence. The settlers were unable to meet the terms of charter due to the Indian War, and the charter was renewed in 1760.
