Notes
General:
Charles McCoy is believed to be the earliest settler in Epsom, NH. All accounts of previous historians find no other mention, deed or proof of anyone residing prior to that of the McCoys. The highest point of terrain is named for this family, McCoy's Mountain. Originally settling in Londonderry, he removed to Chester, NH November 12, 1728, which he in turn sold June 30, 1730 with his wife Mary signing. His daughter Mary was, according to Rev. Curtiss' history, born in Epsom, NH about 1731, which places the McCoy's here right after they left Chester.

Not being an original proprietor, Charles McCoy may have settled prematurely. A "warning out" was acted on June 27, 1733 by Epsom, NH Constable Paul Chapman, made by Selectmen Richard Goss, Thomas Berry and John Wilson. It gave Mr. Charles McCoy 14 days to leave town. The immediate outcome is not known, but Charles was "of Epsom, NH" by deed in October 29, 1735.

By 1747, Charles has a second wife, Isabel, whose place in Epsom, NH History is marked my a monument at the spot where she was captured by Indians and taken to Canada and sold as a servant to a French family. She returned for the sake of the children, as her husband was reported as "a man of rather a rough and violent temper." The full account of the capture was written by Rev. Curtis and retold by Jonathan Dolbeer in the Hurd History of Merrimack and Belknap Counties. At the time of the capture the younger McCoy children were already at the Garrison (the home of Andrew McClary) and Charles, with his near to adult age son John, along with Isabel, were setting out to join them when she lagged behind and was captured.

From John Mark Moses Early Settlers
"Home lot #20 was originally drawn by James Marden of Rye (1697-1777, son of James). April 12, 1735, the proprietors voted this lot forfeited and transferred to Joseph Simpson, who had "settled a family in the town," (Had he settled the McCoy family? He sold them their land.)"

Charles deeded to son's Nathaniel and Francis May 23, 1752, who in turn sold the propety to Reuben Sanborn and his son Eliphalet Sanborn in 1760, thus staying in their family for generations, bearing the name to this day "Sanborn's Hill."

Charles McCoy and wife Mary signed deeds in Chester. Isabella was his wife in Epsom, NH. In 1772, Charles and wife Mary signed deeds selling property to his son Francis.

1759
The third mention of a tavern in Provincial Epsom is the petition of Charles McCoy to license a tavern. His establishment was at or near Sanborn Hill, land he had deeded to his sons. One of the first settlers in Epsom, possibly pre-dating the actual incorporation, he bought land from Joseph Simpson. His wife, Isabella, is well known for her capture by Indians and removal to Canada, from whence she returned later to her family. It would appear that the license was granted, and will be seen in the next post. The petition:
