4/29/13 Newsletter Volume 21, Number 5 April 2006
Have you seen this 2006 article from the Historical Society of Cheshire
? In April 1941, the picturesque village of Marlow, New
Hampshire was surrounded by flames from a raging forest fire that
extended into the neighboring towns of Stoddard, Gilsum, and Washington,
burning a total of 24,000 acres. To commemorate the 65th anniversary of
what is believed to be the largest forest fire in New Hampshire's
history, local historians Charlie Strickland and Tracy Messer are
producing a one-hour documentary entitled Four Days of Fury.

A bit of history
This town, a largely undisturbed agricultural
community on the northern border of Cheshire County, is the prototype of
a Yankee rural village.It was granted in 1753 under the name Addison,
in honor of Joseph Addison, British essayist and poet, and Secretary of
State for England, who signed the appointment papers making John
Wentworth Lieutenant Governor of New Hampshire under the jurisdiction of
Massachusetts in 1717.
there are persistent rumors that Marlow is named for the English poet,
Christopher Marlowe, it seems more likely that, like many New England towns,
Marlow is named after a place and the name "Marlow" recalls Marlowe,
England. Perhaps some of our early settlers came from that region.
Hampshire source supports this view: New Hampshire: A History, Resources,
Attractions, and Its People volume 1 by Hobart Pillsbury. He wrote, "It
was re-granted in 1761 to William Noyes and others and named Marlow after an
English town" (Pillsbury, p 234). Genealogical research on the origins
of Marlow's settlers might shed light on the
The picturesque village center, with its
white church, Odd Fellows Hall, Town Hall and lily pond is one of the region's
most photographed scenes and often the subject of an artist's brush. Marlow is
the site of many marks of glacial action, and minerals are still found here. A
woodworking industry once used the water power of the Ashuelot River to produce
tools, furniture and wooden buckets from lumber cut nearby.
