Further Information

Portsmouth was one of the premier Loyalist havens and commercial centres in 18th century America, and had strong links to other areas of the world.This delightful watercolour by Des Barres clearly depicts the scale of the Portsmouth's lumber and associated ship building trades under British control prior to the War of Independence.

New Hampshire was run from the town by the Wentworths, an aristocratic family dynasty of appointed Governors who represented the British Kings, George II and George III, between 1717 and 1775.When political and military change came to New Hampshire, Portsmouth was at the very heart of the revolution.In 1775 Governor John Wentworth II, on discovering a mob pointing a cannon at his Pleasant Street home decided to abdicate his post and leave the town, finally ended a century-long period of British control.
