Excerpt from The Leading Business Men of Dover, Rochester, Farmington, Great Falls and Berwick

Eleven years later or March 3, 1614, no less a personage than Capt. John Smith, of Pocahontas fame-embarked from London and readied Monbegati on the thirtieth day of the following month. After arriving at this point he built seven boats, and in one of these, accompanied by eight men, he entered the Pascataqua. At this time there was not, so far as is known, a single European residing at any point on the long coast line extending from Plymonth to the French settlement on the island of Mount Desert, although scattered along it at sparse intervals were places temporarily visited by fishermen. This state of affairs continued for nearly a decade after Smith's visit, the time and manner of its. termination being stated in Hubbard's "History of New England" thus:

The First Settlement

"Some merchants and other gentlemen in the west of England, belonging to the cities of Exeter, Bristol, Shrewsbury, and the towns of Plymouth, Dorchester, etc., ... having obtained patents for several parts of the country of New England, .. . made some attempts at beginning a plantation in some place about the Pascataqua River about the year 1623.... They sent over that year one Mr. David Thompson, with Mr. Edward Hilton and his brother, Mr. William Hilton., who had been fishmongers in London, with some others that came along with them, furnished with necessaries for carrying on a plantation there. Possibly some others might be sent after them in the years following, 1624 and 1625, some of whom first, in probability, seized on a place called the Little Harbour, on the west side of Pascataqua River, towards or at the mouth thereof; the Hiltons in the meanwhile setting up their stages higher up the river towards the north-west, at or about a place since called Dover."
