John Mitchell, pioneer from Ulster Scotland, was an original settler of Nottingham West, now Hudson, New Hampshire. At that time, Hudson originally was part of Dunstable, Mass. In 1741, it became Nottingham, Mass.; in 1746, Nottingham West, N.H.; and finally, in 1830, Hudson. Many land boundaries were moved in the early years including not only town lines, but state lines.
