Incorporated: 1742

Origin: Originally a parish of Exeter known as Brentwood Parish, in 1742
residents successfully petitioned for the right to maintain a meetinghouse
and minister with public funds. About that same time, during the first year
Benning Wentworth was governor, several older and overgrown New
Hampshire towns were given authorization to divide into separate units.
The name was probably taken from the English town of Brentwood, or
"Burnt Wood," so called because of a residential community established
in an accidentally or deliberately burnt clearing in the king's forest.
