St. Andrew's Church- Hannagh cum Hagnaby Godfrey was a weaver and first settled in Exeter where he signed the Combination of 1639 and was one of the selectmen. He received a grant of meadowland "on the second run beyond Mr. Wheelwright's creek" and in 1645 he had a grant of meadow "at the head of the Great Cove Creek about six acres, if it be there to be found". His farm was located within the present town of Stratham. He moved to Hampton between 1648 and 1650 and served as a selectman there. He settled at the West End on a farm occupied by his descendants. His house is at 73 Exeter Rd (Rte. 27) and is thought to be the oldest frame house in New Hampshire. The large monument in the High Street Cemetery was erected by his descendants in the 1890's and does not mark his grave.
