Amagansett
Beginnings: Jacobus Schellinger brought more to early Long Island than his business ambitions when he moved from New Amsterdam to East Hampton after the English took over the Dutch colony in 1664 and renamed it New York. Three of his children - Abraham, Jacob and Catherine - wanted land to farm, so in 1680 they moved three miles east and founded Amagansett ("place of good water'' in Indian language)
