New Hampshire Delegates

New Hampshire was founded in 1622, and it was named after Hampshire in England. When the American Revolution first broke out, New Hampshire became a divided state.  The main trades of New Hampshire then were agriculture and manufacturing. People of New Hampshire were fishermen, shoemakers, cobblers and farmers. Even the first settlements in New Hampshire were those of fishermen, and they lived near modern-day Portsmouth.

New Hampshire sent two (2) delegates to the Philadelphia Convention. Both signed the Constitution.
