CD: Records of the Town of Southold, Suffolk County, New York

CD: Records of the Town of Southold, Suffolk County, New York - J. Wickham Case. This important two-volume set contains all the extant town records of Southold, located on Long Island in Suffolk County, New York, from about 1650, when the settlement was approximately ten years old, until it became part of the State of New York following the Revolutionary War. The information, most of it reproduced verbatim, comes from Libers A, B, and C of the town records. The documents consist primarily of land grants by the town and deeds showing subsequent land transactions, but there is also a wide variety of other documents including a few wills, inventories and appraisals of estates, land divisions associated with estate settlements, depositions regarding hog stealing, petitions, and a few vital records. The first volume and over half of the second volume covers the period from 1650 to 1700 when the town experienced rapid growth. The remainder of the records go through the early 1780s. The compiler had an extensive knowledge of the town and its people which he incorporated into the text via numerous notes and a twenty page appendix. Original fullname index.
