Rochester, New Hampshire Church Records

Rochester was incorporated as a town, May 10, 1722. The present towns of Farmington and Milton were formerly a part of Rochester. Farmington was set off and incorporated Dec. 1, 1798, and Milton was set off and incorporated June 11, 1802. A part of the farm of Rufus C. Varney was severed and annexed to Barrington, July 10, 1846. Rochester was incorporated as a city, Mar. 31, 1891. It is commonly said that Capt. Timothy Roberts, formerly of Dover, was the first settler in Rochester, and that he moved into that town, Dec. 26, 1728. We have no confidence, however, in this statement; there are good reasons for believing that settlements were made in what is now Rochester at least sixty-five years before the town was incorporated. Rev. Amos Main was the first settled minister, he became pastor of the church at Rochester in 1737.
