Nutfield's First 16 Settlers

I recently started a new series of blog posts on the genealogies of the first sixteen families (plus Rev. James MacGregor) to settle at Nutfield in April 1719.  These are the families that came with Rev. MacGregor from Northern Ireland, and traveled to Nutfield, which eventually became the towns of Londonderry, Windham, Derry and Derryfield, New Hampshire.

These are crowd sourced genealogy sketches.  Many of the readers who commented on my blog posts helped with details on these families, as well as comments made on social media (such as the Nutfield Genealogy Facebook page, and the 1718 Society Facebook page). 

There are plans to publish these genealogy sketches in a brochure for Founders Day Weekend April 12 – 14, 2019 in Derry, New Hampshire.  If I have the time I will also try to write up some genealogy sketches of some of the other early settlers in Londonderry, New Hampshire.  Stay tuned!
I’m adding this list as a permanent tab at the top of my blog page.  Look for it right under the photo at the top of this and every blog page. 

Here are the surnames and the links to the blog posts…
