North Hampton is a town in Rockingham County, New Hampshire, United States. The population was 4,301 at the 2010 census. While the majority of the town is inland, North Hampton includes a part of New Hampshire's limited Atlantic seacoast.

History

First settled in 1639, this town was a part of Hampton known as "North Hill" or "North Parish". Residents began petitioning for separation from Hampton as early as 1719, but township was not granted until 1742 by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth, following separation of New Hampshire from Massachusetts. In 1831, North Hampton was represented in the New Hampshire House of Representatives by Benning Leavitt.

Little Boar's Head, a seaside promontory, became a fashionable summer resort in the 19th century, and contains elegant examples of Victorian and Edwardian architecture.
