Overview
This territory was a part of the Dover and Squamscot Patent known Bloody Point, in memory of a victory by early colonists over an attacking band of Indians in the late 1600s. Following a boundary dispute with Greenland in 1714, Governor Joseph Dudley gave it the name Newington Parish. In 1952, the US Air Force took command of Portsmouth Airport for a bomber base, and land for expansion was taken from Portsmouth, Newington, and Greenland; about 60 percent of the airport is in Newington. In 1957, the facility was named for Captain Harl Pease, a WWII fighter pilot posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. The base fell to BRAC closure in 1991, but still houses the NH Air National Guard.
