Holderness is a town located in Western New Hampshire in the Lakes region of the state. It is situated in the Southwestern part of Grafton County and encompasses a total area of 35.9 square miles, 5.4 of which is water. As of the 2010 United States Census, Holderness was home to 2,108 residents.
Thomas Shepard submitted a petition for six miles of land along the Pemigewasset River in 1751, as it was along the trade route for Abenaki Indians and local European settlers. Governor Benning Wentworth granted the petition, and incorporated the town in 1751. It was named Holderness after Robert Darcy, who was the fourth Early of Holderness. Settlement stalled, however, because of the French and Indian War, so it had to be regranted again in 1761. At the time, it was called New Holderness; the “new” was dropped from the name in 1816, after the town had grown to include more than 300 residents.
