Derry history:

Derry was first known as Nutfield when the Reverend MacGregor, from Londonderry, Ireland, arrived here in 1719 with a group of settlers. By 1722, the name was changed to Londonderry and a town charter created. Over a century later, on 2 July 1827, Londonderry divided from its eastern parts. The eastern areas were named Derry and the rest retained the name of Londonderry.
