Capt Charles Rundlet must have received his rank of Captain in the French and Indian Wars. On November 15, 1765, Charles Rundlet, along with other citizens, signed a statement promising to assemble, stand by and defend peace officers against disturbers of peace and invaders of public property. This action was necessary because many people seemed to think that all laws were at an end when the Stamp Act was not recognized by the people of Exeter. This Charles was probably Capt. Charles who was ? years old at the time.
Ship building was a big industry in Exeter during the fifteen or twenty years just before the Revolutionary War. As many as twenty-two vessels, great and small, were upon the stocks there in a single season. Wages were good and money was abundant. It was during this time that Charles Rundlet and Zebulon Giddings were listed among the ship builders of the town.
Charles Rundelet was a Select Man of Exeter in 1755, 1766, 1767, 1768 and 1769.
James Rundlet, son of Charles, was in the Revolutionary War, and was a drummer in Capt. Simon Marston's Co. in 1776. In 1777 he was a guard at the Exeter jail where foreign prisoners and Tories were brought from New York. James was Sargent in 1778, when he was listed as missing at Hubbardtown, Vermont. He was probably captured.
Jonathan Rundlet was placed on the Revolutionary pension list of Rockinham County, N.H. on October 19, 1832, age 74 years.
Henry RANLET (probably Capt. Charles' son who changed the spelling of the last name) was a printer who set up an office in Exeter in 1785 and printed the weekly paper - "The American Herald of Liberty". It was made of political essays and advertisements, no local news. He printed books for Boston, Worcester and Portsmouth publishers, and he was the first printer in the area to print music. He had completed ten or twelve volumes of vocal and instrumental music when he died in 1807. Another of his papers started in 1797 - "The Political Banquet and Farmers Feast". He married Betsy Hall in 1787.
Daniel RANLET, probably Henry's son, was a leading businessman in Exeter in the early 1800's. Daniel married Sophia Folsom in 1807.
