"As Governor, Benning Wentworth lined his pockets selling land grants in what is now Vermont - He scandalized Portsmouth's elite in 1760 when he surprised his dinner guests by marrying his maid, Martha Hilton, then and there is his dining room." - New England Historical Society
Bennington, Vermont -- town and county both -- are named in Governor Wentworth's honor
