Rindge was first granted by the Massachusetts government in 1736. The grantees were soldiers from Rowley, Massachusetts, returning from the war in Canada, and the settlement was known as Rowley-Canada. Following establishment of New Hampshire as a separate province, the Masonian Proprietors regranted the territory, and it was renamed Monadnock Number 1, or South Monadnock, in 1749. The town was incorporated as Rindge in 1768, in honor of Captain Daniel Rindge, one of the original grant holders who was related by marriage to Governor Benning Wentworth.
