The area suffered a major smallpox epidemic in the 1630s following the arrival of Dutch traders in the Hudson Valley and New England settlers in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during the previous two decades. It was in this context that the land making up the bulk of modern Northampton was sold to settlers from Springfield in 1653.:512On May 18, 1653, a petition for township was approved by the general court of Springfield.:7 While some settlers visited the land in the fall of 1653, they waited till early spring 1654 to arrive and establish a permanent settlement.:1516 The situation in the region further deteriorated when the Mohawk people escalated hostilities against the Algonquian tribes after 1655.

History

Northampton was known as "Norwottuck", or "Nonotuck", meaning "the midst of the river", named by its original Pocumtuc inhabitants. The area suffered a major smallpox epidemic in the 1630s following the arrival of Dutch traders in the Hudson Valley. Northampton hosted its own witch trials in the 1700s, although no alleged witches were executed. In 1805, a crowd of 15,000 gathered to watch the executions of two Irishmen convicted of murder in Northampton. The trial "later came to be seen as epitomizing anti-Irish sentiment that was widespread in New England in the early 19th century" Northampton was part of the Equivalent Lands compromise, and was incorporated in 1775 and included parts of modern Southampton, Westhampton, and Easthampton. A hamlet of Northampton, called Smith's Ferry, became separated from the rest of the city with the drawing of boundaries for Easthamptonshire in 1809. On August 29, 1786, Daniel Shays and a group of Revolutionary War veterans (who called themselves Shaysites) stopped an uprising known as Shays' Rebellion. The men were hanged on June 5, 1806, on Pancake Plain, on Plain Plain, and were denied burial; they were denied a burial in the local slaughterhouse; their bodies were later destroyed in a firehouse. The town's name is believed to be derived from the name of John A. King, one of the first white settlers in the area.
