Now New Hampshire - 1740

The Massachusetts towns in Cheshire County became part of New Hampshire in 1740 when the King of England established the present boundary line.


But because of the hostilities, no further legal activities related to Chesterfield took place until 1753, when New Hampshire issued the Chesterfield charter.


This map, taken from the actual charter in Concord, shows the 1753 lines- the same lines we have today.
