Kingston NH School Information

Kingston is a town in Rockingham County, New Hampshire, United States. The population at the 2010 census was 6,025.


Kingston was the fifth town to be established in New Hampshire. Originally, it was a part of Hampton, New Hampshire. After the King's War, the establishment of new settlements was made possible by peace treaties with the local Indian tribes and, in 1692, by geographical and jurisdictional agreements between the provinces of Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Consequently, certain residents of Hampton, New Hampshire petitioned for a grant of a separate township to be created from the western part of Hampton. And so, in 1694, King William of England granted a royal charter establishing the town of "Kingstown", so named in honor of the King. Use of the title rather than the King's name was common at the time. The original charter still exists to this day.
