Hillsborough County was one of the five original counties created by the Provincial Act of 1769. It was named for Wills Hill, the Viscount Hillsborough who was the British Secretary of State for the Colonies at the time. The county began to execute its legal authority on March 19, 1771, when approval was received from the king of England. The original jurisdiction of the county included 13 towns that are now in Merrimack County. In 1823 those towns were detached
and geographical boundaries of Hillsborough County were defined as they exist
today. Over several years ending in 1869, county administration functions were
moved from Amherst to the current seats of Manchester and Nashua.
