Origin: This territory was first granted to James Campbell upon petition to the Masonian Proprietors in 1748. For many years it was known as Campbell's Gore.

The town was incorporated as Windsor, probably after Windsor, Connecticut, the hometown of James Campbell. Windsor is the smallest town in New Hampshire south of the White Mountains.
