Overview
According to the "Topographical and Historical Sketch of the Town of Andover" published in 1822 by Jacob B. Moore, Andover was originally called New Breton "in honor of those brave men who achieved the capture of Cape Breton" in 1745. Most of the original grantees were out of this expedition. The regimental surgeon, Dr. Anthony Emery, was a college friend of John Phillips, founder of the Phillips Andover Academy in Massachusetts, completed in 1779. The town was incorporated as Andover in that same year. Andover, New Hampshire’s first private school, as referenced in John R. Eastman's History of Andover, NH 1751-1906, was started in 1822 and closed in 1828; another was started in 1848 and became Proctor Academy.
