Excerpt from An Address Delivered Before the Suffolk County Historical Society: Oct 1st, 1889 The Puritans of Lynn, embarking with a vessel under the command of Daniel How, left behind the territory of the New England colonies, and, preferring this island as a field of enterprise, settled at Southampton. The choice of the Puritans who settled in the Hamptons or at Southold is confirmed by the continuing verdict of the ages and of our own time. What attracted them has attract ed succeeding generations until the places where they planted their colonies have become the summer resort of thousands.
