Brentwood, Rockingham, NH

The first non-native settlers came in 1652 to start a sawmill powered by a waterfall on the Exeter River.

The town was once a part of Exeter known as Brentwood (or Brintwood) Parish. It was named after Brentwood, Essex, originally called "Burnt Wood", where, in 1177, King Henry II granted permission for 40 acres (160,000 m2) of the king's forest to be cut, burned and cultivated.

Beginning in 1738, residents living in the southwestern portion of Exeter, now Brentwood and Fremont, petitioned to be set off, but were denied. They cited difficulty of getting to the Exeter church/ meetinghouse, where weekly attendance was obligatory, and the requirement to pay Exeter taxes... On 26 June 1742, Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth set Brentwood off from Exeter and incorporated it.
