In April 1719, a small band of Scotch-Irish settlers under the guiding spirit of Rev. James MacGregor founded the town of Londonderry in New Hampshire, which was destined to be an early Presbyterian stronghold in America. The keeping of vital records in Londonderry commenced almost at once. Years later, when the town voted to fund the printing of these vital records for the period from 1719 to 1910, there were approximately 25,000 records of births, marriages, marriage intentions and deaths.
Compiled by the former town clerk and tax collector, Daniel Annis, the records are given here in alphabetical order under those four main headings. Not all persons in these records are Scotch-Irish or of Scotch-Irish descent, but the historically significant Scotch-Irish element is traceable through all the nearly 200 years of records.
