Upcoming Nutfield Settlers Series and Nutfield 300th Anniversary Events!

First Church in East Derry, New Hampshire

Preparations are being made for the upcoming 300th Anniversary of Nutfield celebrations in Derry, Londonderry, Windham and Derryfield (Manchester), New Hampshire!  We will be celebrating the first permanent Scots Irish settlement in the New World.  The first big event will be the Founder’s Weekend April 12 – 14, 2019 at the First Parish Church (Rev. James MacGregor’s parish) and across the street at the Upper Village Hall in East Derry, New Hampshire.  Watch for registration information and specific schedules of events coming soon.

If you haven’t seen the brochure yet for the 300th Anniversary (a whole year’s worth of events in four towns!), click here…

Yesterday three new videos about the 1718 migration and the 1719 founding of Nutfield was made public.  These videos were produced by our partners the Ulster-Scots Agency in Northern Ireland.  You can find all three videos, and an introductory video by Richard Hanna, Director of Education and Language for the Ulster-Scots Agency.  In the Nutfield video you can see me on screen for about five seconds!  You can view them at this link:

In the next few months I will be publishing sketches of the first sixteen families to settle Nutfield at this blog.  Stay tuned for all the new posts!  When I finish that series, I will be posting similar posts on some of the other early Scots-Irish families that settled Nutfield (Londonderry).  For a complete list of those first sixteen families, click here:

I’m especially interested in meeting (in person and online) with descendants who are interested in attending, planning, and meeting up with cousins and other descendants of Nutfield settlers during Founder’s Weekend in April. We are planning a fun reunion for everyone who is a Nutfield (or Londonderry, Derry, Windham or Derryfield) descendant as part of this weekend.  If you are planning to attend, or if you cannot attend but would like to receive the information, please register at this link:
