According to The Jersey Settlers of Adams Co., MS by Frances Preston Mills, Page 26 of Vol. II (From a guide published by the Southold Historical Society: Records Concerning Old Houses in Early Southold, Long Island)... Historic Head of Town Creek; a Town Spot of Early Settlement Activity - Along the northerly, nearby shore of this creek in the 1640-1700 period there were the homes of Capt. Charles GLOVER and Lieut. Samuel GLOVER, shipbuilders; the home, warehouse and landing stage of Col. Isaac ARNOLD, port collector, later of Carteret GILLAM, mariner; Mariner John YONGES' house and wharf and Capt. John YONGES' warehouse. Across the creek lay Calves Neck, common wood and pasturage land; surveyed by Thomas MAPES and allotted, in 1658, to the freemen of the settlement. The creek ran deep as a river, continuing westerly into the town, passing creek-thatch and the rear homesite lands of Rev. John YONGES, first pastoral leader in the colony. Early long boats and vessels with cargo plied this waterway.
