The Indian name for this locality was " Pentucket" - but the early settlers applied the name of Haverhill in compliment to Rev. John Ward, their first minister, who came from Haverhill, England. "Mr. Ward & Newberry men " petitioned the General Court on May 13, 1640, for permission to begin a new plantation on the Merrimack river, which was granted provided " they build there before the next Courte." Though the town was settled and houses erected in 1640 it was not until November 15, 1642, that a title to the land was purchased of the Indian owners.
In June, 1641, the Court appointed men to determine the bounds 'between Salsberry and Pantucket alias Haverell."
In 1643, a law was passed by the General Court requiring a record to be kept of births, marriages and deaths in each town and in Haverhill, Richard Littlehale was chosen "clerk of the Writs and Town Recorder," and the first meeting of which proceedings are recorded was held November 6, 1643.
In 1645 the plantation of Haverhill was incorporated as a town.
