New Hampshire Civil Service
1775 - 1783

 
 

   

 

In addition to military and patriotic service, the DAR and SAR also accept civil service for establishing an ancestor as a Revolutionary War patriot.  Thousands of men in New Hampshire served in some type of civil capacity during the American Revolution.  Town meeting minutes from 1775-1783 for some New Hampshire towns are now online. 

Annual elections in most towns took place in March.  Because the official start date for eligible service is 19 Apr 1775 and because most men elected in March 1775 would have been serving in their elected positions in late April 1775, the online records are linked to the page containing the minutes for March 1775.  Review the town meeting minutes from March 1775 - November 1783 for your ancestor's name.  Be sure to check for committee assignments and other types of civil service in addition to service as an elected town official.
