The Early History of Londonderry
The emigrants who settled the Town of Londonderry, New Hampshire, were descendants of a colony migrating from Scotland to North Ireland (Ulster) about 1612. A large number of these Scotch-Irish settlers left their homes in Londonderry, Ireland, and arrived in Boston in 1718 to start a new life without religious wars and persecution. Of the five shiploads (NOTE: including the Dolphin, the McCullom and the Mary & Elizabeth) of people under the guidance of Rev. James MacGregor, one group remained in Boston, one group settled in Dracut and Andover and a third group ventured north to what is now Portland, Maine. A harsh winter and low provisions forced the third group to retreat south to Haverhill, Massachusetts, where they heard of a twelve square mile area “abound with nut trees”. Sixteen families left Haverhill for Nutfield in 1719 and on June 21, 1722, established a charter for the Township of Londonderry. Later, several portions of the Town were subdivided into parishes and other towns.
Nutfield was the first inland settlement in the Merrimack Valley and originally included what are now the Town of Manchester, Hudson, Windham, Salem and Derry (the oak grove). In 1741 a section was lost on the southern boundary to form Windham and Hudson; Derryfield (later named Manchester) was incorporated in 1751 and Derry became a separate Town in 1828.

The original settlers in Brookline (formerly known as Raby Township) of the name of McIntosh consisted of three brothers, Alexander, James and Archibold; all of whom settled in the Mile Slip, coming there from Townsend, Mass. In the following sketches the lists of the names of the children of each are copied from the Brookline record of births, and are undoubtedly incomplete. The name of McIntosh is obselete here at the present time.
ALEXANDER McINTOSH was probably a son of Archibald and Elizabeth ( ) McIntosh of Londonderry, where he was born August 18, 1738. About 1750, the family moved from Londonderry to Townsend, Mass. In 1761 he removed from Townsend, to the Mile Slip (now Brookline) where he settled on land which he purchased of Capt. William Blanchard by deed dated May 6, 1761. His log-cabin was located about one and one-fourth miles north of the village Main street, on the west side of the highway to Mason. Its site at the present time (1914) is occupied by the dwelling house of Henry G. Shattuck; which, tradition says, was built by McIntosh. This house, or the original log-cabin was the scene of some of the first town meetings holden in Raby. He was one of Raby's soldiers in the War of the Revolution. He was a member of the Board of Selectmen in 1772, 1775, 1776, and 1777. He m. Jan. 8, 1763, Mary Walker of Pepperell, Mass (cf "History of Townsend, MA" which states he m. Mary Graham of Townsend, MA - same date). He d. in Brookline in 1817, aged 80 years, and is buried in the Pond Cemetery.

JAMES McINTOSH, a brother of Alexander 1st, settled in the Mile Slip in 1761. At the time of the incorporation of Raby in 1769, he was living on the west side of the highway leading out of the highway to Mason on its south side at a point near to the late residence of the late Joseph A. Hall, and running southerly to the old Mathew Wallace place; in the pasture some few rods east of which the cellar-hole of his log-cabin is still in evidence. He was one of Brookline's soldiers in the Revolution; serving as a corporal in Capt. Reuben Dow's company of Hollis; and was in the battle of Bunker Hill. After the close of the war, he was at one time captain of the local militia company, and was for several years on the board of selectmen. He m. in 1777, Jane Tuten, a sister of Mary Tuten, wife of David Allds, of Dunstable, N. H. He d. Oct. 16, 1828, aged 80 years; and is buried in the Pond Cemetery.

ARCHIBALD McINTOSH settled in the Mile Slip in 1759. His farm, which he purchased of James Connock of Townsend, May 28, 1759, was located on the southwest side of "Great Mussepetanepus Hill". He was a soldier for Raby in the War of the Revolution, and was in the battle of Bunker Hill, where he was wounded and taken prisoner. He died of his wounds July 10, 1775. His name is inscribed on one of the Memorial Tablets in Charlestown, Mass., as one of the soldiers of Brookline who were killed in that battle. His farm was located in the southwest part of the town. A cellar-hole, still in existence on the east side of the highway leading frum the old Mathew Wallace place to Townsend, and a few rods south of the point where the same is crossed by the Wallace brook, is supposed to mark the site of the location of his log-cabin. He m. Rachel Allds of Dunstable, N. H. She d.; m. 2nd, Mar. 19, 1778, Susanna Russell of Mason (NOTE: I believe the father and his son are mixed up here, i.e., the son, Archibald, m.
