About Manchester

This territory, first known as Harrytown, was granted in 1735 as Tyng's Town to Captain William Tyng's snow-shoe men who had fought in the French and Indian War during the winter of 1703. In 1751, it was incorporated as Derryfield, and included part of Chester and Londonderry. The name Manchester was suggested by Samuel Blodgett, a businessman who found that the Amoskeag Falls impeded shipping on the Merrimack River. He had visited Manchester, England, and was determined to build a canal like those in England. The canal was opened in May 1807, and though Mr. Blodgett died later that year, the town was renamed Manchester in 1810. The first cotton spinning mill opened in 1804, and the Amoskeag Cotton and Wool Manufacturing Company opened in 1810. Manchester was incorporated as a city in 1846. (info from NHES website)
