Southampton, My Birthplace

Leave a comment Standard

Here are some photos from today in the great village of Southampton, NY.  I was born here on September 1st, 2003, in Southampton Hospital.  We lived here most of the Summer and Fall before I started school full-time at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School in Palm Coast, Florida.  

Southampton was founded in 1640 and is the oldest English settlement in New York state.  There is a lot of history here including the original Native American tribe – The Shinnecock’s – who were here when the first English settlers arrived at Conscience Point from Connecticut.  Southampton is located on the South Fork of the East End of Long Island.  It is now a famous summer community but for years prior to that it was all farms and sea faring including whaling.  

My great grandmother’s family were one of the first settlers in New York!  She was a Philips and a Howell.  She was a life member of the Daughters of the American Revolution since one of her ancestors, Sylvanus Jennings, served in the New York Volunteers during the War of Independence against England.

This is Frederick and tomorrow I will have more on Southampton and its history.
