Overview
Epping was one of the last towns chartered by Massachusetts Governor Jonathan Belcher prior to the establishment of New Hampshire as an independent province. Once a parish of Exeter, Epping was incorporated as a separate town in 1741. It was probably named for Epping Forest, a suburb of London used by royalty for deer hunting, which was likely familiar to Governor Belcher. Epping was the home of three of New Hampshire's governors: William Plumer (1759-1850), David Morril (1772-1849), and Benjamin Franklin Prescott (1833-1895).
