  • Notes 
    • "January 31, 1771, he was appointed, by Gov. John Wentworth, ensign of the Thirteenth Company in the Fourth Regiment of militia, commanded by Col. Nathaniel Folsom of Exeter, and, November 3, 1773, was appointed lieutenant of the same company. He settled his son Jeremiah on the farm owned by Martha Cilley, while he retained his son Jonathan in the same house that his grandson, Meshech Maloon, occupies. His wife died in 1800. He died July, 1803, very suddenly, in his chair." [History of Nottingham, Deerfield, and Northwood, citation details below]

      Genealogical footnote: New Hampshire royal governor John Wentworth (1737-1820) was a great-great-grandson of TNH's ancestor William Wentworth (1616-1697), a seventeenth-century emigrant to Boston and then New Hampshire. He succeeded his uncle Benning Wentworth as governor of New Hampshire in 1766. Following the outbreak of the Revolution he left New Hampshire and by 1783 he was a crown official in Nova Scotia, where in the 1780s, bored out her skull by local society, his vivacious wife, his cousin Frances Deering Wentworth, had an affair with Prince William Henry, younger brother of George III. In 1792 he was appointed lieutenant governor of Nova Scotia. Throughout the 1790s he and his wife frequently hosted, at their Nova Scotia home, Prince Edward Augustus, fourth son of George III and commander-in-chief in Nova Scotia. Prince Edward used their home as one of the several rendezvous points for his long-running affair with his French mistress, Thérèse-Bernardine Mongenet, known as Mme de Saint-Laurent, during the years of his Nova Scotian and British North American commands, 1794-1800.
