"The Kidders of Wilmington." were, and are, a prominent name in Wilmington, stretching back nearly
two centuries to 1826, in fact, when brothers Frederic and Edward Kidder
immigrated (via a stormy coastal voyage) from their ancestral home in New
Ipswich, N.H., to Wilmington, where they opened a commission merchants’
hated the climate, spent his summers back in New England and left for good after
less than a decade, but Edward stayed on, prospered in the lumber business and
even ran a blockade runner during the Civil War (while trying various peace
feelers between the Confederacy and the North).
