About Suffolk County

"Near Boston, Massachusetts, at Lynn in 1640,
eight men formed a company with the
intention of establishing their own town.

"These men were Edward Howell, Edmond Farrington,
Edmund Needham, Thomas Sayre, Josiah Stanborough,
George Welbe, Henry Walton, and Job Sayre.

"Before the company departed Lynn,
twelve more families were added: Danie How,
John Cooper, Allen Breed, William Harker,
Thomas Halsey, Thomas Newell, John Farrington,
Richard Odell, Philip Kyrtand, Nathaniel Kirtland,
Thomas Farrington, and Thamas Terry.

"By July 7, 1640, they had determined the town boundaries.
During the next few years (1640-1643), Southampton
was further increased in population by 43 families.

The Early History of Southampton, LI, New York
with Genealogies
, by George Rogers Howell, M.A.

Suffolk County occupies the eastern two thirds of Long Island, New York, which juts about 120 miles into the Atlantic. The County covers roughly a thousand square miles of territory and is eighty-six miles long and twenty-six miles wide at the widest point. The weather is temperate, clean water abundant, and the soil is good and in fact, Suffolk is the leading agricultural county in the state of New York. That it is still number one in farming despite all of the building developments and urban sprawl is a tribute to the excellent soil, favorable weather conditions, and the farmers of this region.

Over the past millennium there has been a procession of all kinds of people from Indians, explorers, pirates and colonists, to an invading army that maintained control for years. There have also been whalers, railroad men, Nazis, summer people, bootleggers, groupies, commuters, and spacemen. Of course, homeowners and farmer fisherman have always been the mainstay of this County. There is a cosmopolitan mixture of 1,300,000 people of all kinds today and the population is still growing.
