Belknap County was organized in 1840 by removing parts of northeastern Merrimack County and northwestern Strafford County.
It is named for Dr. Jeremy Belknap, a renowned preacher, historian, and author of The History of New Hampshire. The first County Court was held within the town of Meredith, at a village known as Merideth Bridge on the Winnipesaukee River. In 1855, the town of Laconia was separated from Meredith.
