Kingston, New Hampshire Early Families, Patriots, and Soldiers - Kathleen E. Hosier. Over three hundred years have passed since the town of Kingston was granted a Charter in 1694. The early settlers of Kingston were made up mostly of inhabitants from Hampton, New Hampshire. Although the town had been established in 1694, it often had to be abandoned because of Indian attacks and dangerous wolves. Eventually, Kingston was resettled. As the population became larger, petitions were directed to the colonial government to incorporate new towns. After the Revolutionary War, bounty lands were granted to those who had fought for independence, and the migration of Kingston families can be found from Maine to Ohio. Section One of this fascinating book covers the genealogies of early families living in Kingston, including the original grantees from its founding to the period when new towns were incorporated within the original boundaries. Section Two contains the patriots and soldiers of Kingston who contributed to the cause of independence in the Revolutionary War. Included are those who signed the Association Test in Kingston, as well as those who resided, enlisted, were mustered or served for the town of Kingston. Some of the men are listed as Kingston men for one enlistment, but can be found as listed for a different town in another muster roll. The families are arranged alphabetically by heads of families and include pertinent information when available on births, deaths, and marriages. A full-name index completes this work.
