Mattituck

Mattituck
Beginnings: Corchaug Indians, who were the first residents of the area, sold land, including what is now Mattituck, to Theophilus Eaton, governor of New Haven, Connecticut. The meadowlands at Mattituck - believed to mean ``the great creek'' in the Indian language - were held in common by the residents of Southold from its founding in 1640 and were used to grow salt hay. The woodlands were also held in common until 1661 when that land was divided among individual proprietors. A year later, settlement began.
