The town of Epsom, Merrimack County, New Hampshire, was chartered in 1727 and soon after, the first 20 home lots began to be settled. Tracing these early settlers of Epsom evolved over the last decade to encompass this website, home to the Epsom Historical Association. The menu bar at the top of the page will guide you to the various sections of the website, and there are quick links to the more popular research areas on the right side of the page. For the best search results, click on Site Search in the menu bar, as there are different search boxes for various parts of the website. Whether browsing or researching, please sign our guest book to let us know of your visit.
The early town records were transcribed from the original books for what was called 'State' copies. These copies, in large books, are at the NH State Library and also there on microfilm. The micorfilm was made in the 1950's by the LDS Church, and the images are now online. These 'State' record books are much easier to read than the original books held at the NH State Archives. The online images are available to browse, but the images are not indexed. Hopefully, over time, these images can be indexed. As a beginning to this imense project, the images for the Arigultural and Poll data for the years 1793-1825 are indexed with links for quick access. Read more [...]

From time to time corrections and updates have to be made to the Epsom Early Settlers Genealogy database. There were some errors in the family of Robert McDaniel and his wife Nancy Keniston. For those that might have connections, the following corrections and additions need to be made. A grandchild of John Griffin who married Mary Maria McDaniel, wrote a family history, typed, from which the following information was gleaned (note prior to this information, only one son was known, Samuel). This single page starts with a previously unknown son, Robert (Jr.). The files was misinterpreted when first entered. The brothers of Robert were listed as brothers to Robert (1779-1861) instead of listed as his and Nancy's children. This prompted researching this family again, and though there is an immense amount of information missing, the children of Robert and Nancy McDaniel can be found at our genealogy database. (link)..
