Joseph Dow's History of Hampton: "The Wreck of Rivermouth"
"THE WRECK OF RIVERMOUTH"
The entry is thus quaintly made on the town records:
"The sad hand of God upon eight psons goeing in a vessell by sea from Hampton to boston, who were all swallowed up in the ocean soon after they were out of the Harbour."
[Also see the poem "The Wreck of Rivermouth" by John Greenleaf Whittier.]
The SeacoastNH.com website has a page devoted to this shipwreck.
