printers, 1699- (The first European explorations in the area that would become New Hampshire were by Martin Pring in 1603 and Samuel de Champlain in
1605. In 1620 the Council for New England received a royal grant for land in the area. Portsmouth was founded by farmers and fishermen in 1630.
Initially the area received what little governance was needed from the governor of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay. It finally received its own governor,
Benning Wentworth, in 1641. Following a modest growth in the population, the settlements were declared a separate royal colony in 1679. In 1684 the
governance of most of New England was upended by King James II, who abrogated all existing charters and in 1686 sent Sir Edmund Andros to administer a
new colony, the Dominion of New England, embracing the colonies of New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Plymouth, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York. The
Andros reign was exceedingly unpopular, and he was soon sent packing as the new Dominion dissolved amid the general chaos accompanying England’s
Glorious Revolution. In 1692 the new English monarchs, William and Mary, granted a charter for a separate Province of New Hampshire, with a royally
appointed governor and a first appointed and later elected council. The Province of New Hampshire lasted from 1692 to 1776, when New Hampshire became first
colony to declare independence and to establish its own government in January of 1776. In 1788 it became the ninth, and the last necessary state to
ratify the new constitution of the new United States. According to Pimsleur, the first materials issued by the General Court of the Province of New
Hampshire were dated Aug., 1699. Its current bicameral legislature, still formally termed The General Court, is one of the largest representative bodies
in the world, with a senate of 24 members and a house of representatives with membership ranging from 375 to 400. All members of both bodies serve
two-year terms.)
