Exeter was previously the field of Squamscott Native Americans, which is Pennacook nation’s sub-tribe that fished at the falls of the tidal Squamscott (then Exeter River), the place around where the town would flourish. Rev. John Wheelwright and the others acquired the land on April 3, 1638 from the sagamore, Wehanownowit. The reverend was banished by a puritan theocracy, the Massachusetts Bay Colony, for revealing the dissenting religious beliefs of Anne Hutchinson, his sister-in-law. He brought with him around 175 people to discover Exeter for which he named after Exeter in England (Devon).

Exeter was among the 4 early communities in the province and initially included Fremont, Newfields, Brentwood, Newmarket, and Epping. The town had 35 freemen who signed the Exeter Combination on July 4, 1639, a paper that was written by Rev. John Wheelwright to form their government. The inhabitants fished, hunted and planted, while the others looked after the swine and cattle or made barrel staves and shakes.

The first grist mill was established by Thomas Wilson on the island’s eastern part located in the lower falls. It was create   d in the early period of living in the town, and Humphrey, his son, had taken control of the grist mill when his father died in 1643.

The town’s efficiency as a publishing center was harmonized by a variety of other manufacturers. Soon after 1638, Squamscott River’s lower falls were employed for grist mills, and in the late 1640s, sawmills were developed by Edward Gilman and the others. Subsequently, the supremacy of the town’s numerous streams did not stop to produce wealth until the 20th century. By the year 1795, the 2 waterfalls located at the center of Exeter powered 2 mills to press linseed oil, fulling mill to clean woolen cloth, 4 grist mills, and 4 sawmills. There were times when other waterpower sites maintained the state’s early gunpowder plant, chocolate mills, paper mills, and several other sawmills and grist mills.
