History of Southold, Long Island: Its First Century - Rev. Epher Whitaker, D.D. . Southold was the first permanent settlement made on Long Island with settlement beginning about 1640. The first settlers came primarily from Massachusetts. The author covers the period down to 1740 in considerable detail and disproves various fanciful accounts of the early history of the town which had appeared previously. He identifies 138 settlers who were part of the first generation in the town, and provides biographical sketches of many of them. The text also mentions many later residents, including some who emigrated to other settlements. There are extensive extracts from original sources including tax lists for 1675 and 1683. An index to full-names, places and subjects completes this work. (1881, 1988), 2012, 5½x8½, paper, index, 362 pp. 101-W0161 ISBN: 1556131615
