Excerpt from Thomas (Nock) Knox of Dover, N. H., In 1652: And Some of His Descendants

The Nock or Knox family, which was quite numerous in Dover, N. H., a hundred and fifty years ago, has entirely disappeared from that ancient town, and there is nothing but faded and almost illegible records, and a marsh which still, as it was two hundred years ago, is known as "Nock's marsh," are found to indicate that families of this name ever lived there. Oyster River, now the town of Durham, and Cocheco, now Dover, were settled very early. Many of the early settlers landed and resided for a time in Boston, before removing to Cocheco. Most of the early settlers were English, though there was a mixture of Scotch, and some from the Channel Islands. Agriculture seemed to be the chief object and employment of the early settlers, though some engaged in fishing, in trade and navigation, and, to a limited extent, in manufactures. Lumber was essential to the success of the settlement, and so lumber mills were erected as soon as materials for their construction could be had. The Indians were quite friendly when the settlement in the region of Dover was begun, and continued so for many years, with few exceptions, to the breaking out of King Philip's war in 1675. After that and for nearly three-quarters of a century after, the settlers were terribly harrassed by them ; houses were pillaged and burned, many of the settlers were either killed or carried into captivity, and there were times when it seemed that the place must be entirely abandoned. But a few hardy men remained and fought it out, living for the most part in garrison houses, and carrying their arms with them wherever they went. The fall of Quebec put an end to French influence in this country, and a stop to Indian depredations in New England forever.
