A detailed history covering the large area encompassing the present towns Lee, Madbury, Durham, Somersworth, Newington, and Rollingsford as well as Dover. Has many biographical sketches, several 17th century tax lists, a 1740 militia roll, and a list of town officers to 1855. The second half of the book is all genealogies.

This is a very significant early source (1923), describing one of the oldest towns in New Hampshire. It is excellent at what it is intended to do. However, this recent reprint (Heritage Books, 2008) was sent without the "fold-out map [that] shows the land owners on Dover Neck during the period 1623-1723... ." At the cost of $41.50 for the reprint, this is just not acceptable. The fold-out, available in the original, is one of the most valuable maps of an early 17th-century settlement in the Americas. I am left wondering whether the publisher didn't reprint the map, or whether the book seller removed it. Either way, I have been cheated.

Well researched but it was missing the foldout map that was supposed to be with it. I chose that particular copy because it said it included the map.
