!SOURCE: Nathaniel Adams, ANNALS OF PORTSMOUTH [NEW HAMPSHIRE], published by the author, Portsmouth, 1825, pp. 17-18. The settlement at Piscataqua did not advance very rapidly, nor were there many buildings erected until this year; they now began to increase. The 3d of November, the Council made a grant to Sir Ferdinando Gorges, Capt. John Mason, John Cotton, Henry Gardner, George Griffith, Edwin Gay, Thomas Warnerton, Thomas Eyre, and Eliezer Eyre, who had already expended three thousand pounds to promote the settlement of that part of the patent of Laconia, on which "the buildings and salt works were erected, situate on both sides the harbour and river of Piscataqua, to the extent of five miles westward by the sea coast, then to cross over towards the other plantation, in the hands of Edward Hilton." These were the original limits of Portsmouth, and within them were included the present towns of Portsmouth, New-Castle, and Rye, with part of Newington and Greenland.
