Hampton is a town located in the Southeastern corner of New Hampshire in the Seacoast region of the state. It is situated in the Eastern portion of Rockingham County and encompasses a total area of 14.7 square miles, 1.8 of which is land. The area is very densely populated, with nearly 15,000 residents as of the 2010 United States Census.
The town of Hampton was originally called the Plantation of Winnacunnet and was one of the first four townships chartered in the state on New Hampshire. The area was first settled in 1638 by a group of parishioners from Hampton, England. It was officially incorporated as a town in 1639 and included parts of what is now Seabrook, Kensington, Danville, Kingston, Hampton Falls, Sandown, North Hampton and East Kingston. The Hampton area saw quick growth in the 1850s, when a local railroad and Hampton Trolley line was constructed.
