Question: On a military record of enlistment in 1812, my relative Solomon Liscomb  stated he was born in Hamworth or Hanworth, Strafford County. I cannot locate any such place  on maps or atlases, or any further information. Did it exist in 1812, and if so, where was it?


Answer:  The community you are looking for sounds like “Hamworth” but it is actually spelled Tamworth.  This town was incorporated in 1766 and was part of Strafford County.  That portion of Strafford County is now part of Carroll County since 1840.
