"... Near the mouth of the Creek is the picturesque cottage built by T.S. Coffin; and a little further up is the old Martine farm, which has been in the family for many generations. The house is very old; perhaps it was built by Richard Martine. Whose name appears in the church record of 1693."

Excerpted from The Portsmouth Guide Book, 1896, by Sarah Haven Foster.
