North Bay Shore

North Bay Shore
Beginnings: In October, 1708, Queen Anne of England confirmed John Mowbray's purchase of land that was to become Bay Shore and Brightwaters. Mowbray, a tailor and teacher from Southampton, is said to have paid the fish-dependent Secatogue Indians "several eel spears'' for the Bay Shore-Brightwaters land. Sagtikos Manor to the west of the hamlet is traditionally considered part of Bay Shore, but its original patent in 1693 went to Stephen Van Courtlandt, a Dutch merchant related by marriage to William Nicoll, a wealthy New York politician who received the earliest royal grants for land that is now Islip Town.
