The farm was first owned by the famous Wentworth family. Â Mark Hunking Wentworth, Esq. of Portsmouth in the Province of New Hampshire in New England purchased the land in 1765. Â The property was conveyed to Wentworth's son-in-law, John Fisher, who built a saw and grist mill on Seward's Brook in 1769. Â
The Â property passed to John Fisher, Jr. in 1799, and to John Drew in 1802, who built his house in 1804. Â It was Mark Hunking Wentworth's son, John Wentworth, who became the last English governor of New Hampshire before the Revolutionary War. Â There are many famous New Hampshire sites still named after him. Â One would imagine that Governor Wentworth spent significant time on this property and in the home still here today.
