The town of Wentworth was first chartered in 1766 to a large group of people, of which John Page is most notable.  The name of the town is derived from Governor Benning Wentworth.  The original grantees of the town were given 5 years to settle the claims given in the charter, most of which were unable to comply by the end of the term and forfeited the claim.  In 1772, a man named Asa Porter and others from the town of Haverhill, petitioned Governor John Wentworth, Benning Wentworth's nephew, for some of the forfeited shares.  This petition was granted.  Between the two Wentworth governors 280 towns were chartered in both the states of New Hampshire and Vermont.
