The land that now comprises Springfield was first granted in 1769 to settlers from nearby Portsmouth. At the time, it was known as Protectworth, and much of the area’s land was held by Governor John Wentworth and Captain John Fisher, his brother-in-law. When the two fled New Hampshire in 1775, local residents petitioned to own the land themselves. In 1794, it was officially incorporated as a town and the name was changed to Springfield.
