Historical Records

Strafford County is excited to provide public access to the attached historical records –

One volume, Children Supported by Strafford County, covers the years 1900-1925 and lists every child who was in the custody of the county.

The second volume, entitled Register of Inmates, is the record of those housed at the County Farm (poor house) from 1904-1933.

Prisoners Admitted to Strafford County HOC, is the record of those housed at the House of Corrections (Jail) from 1909-1916.

Prisoners Admitted to Strafford County HOC, is the record of those housed at the House of Corrections (Jail) from 1917-1938.

The volumes are presented in a digital format that allows the viewer to turn the pages as if looking at the actual book.  It is hoped these digital volumes will provide increased access to the general public.

This preservation project has been made possible through funds received from the sale of the New Hampshire Moose Conservation License Plate and administered by the New Hampshire State Library, a division of the New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources.
