Peter Hallock, whose last name was probably "Holyoke", came to New Haven in 1640 with Eaton & Davenport. From New Haven, he was part of thirteen men who removed to Southold, Long Island with Rev. Mr. John Youngs, a Presbyterian minister. They were the first of thirteen men who set foot on the shore among the Indians of Southold.
He purchased from the Shinnecock Indians the tract of land, once called Oyster Ponds, and now called Orient. He returned to England to bring his wife to the new world and on coming back found that the Indians had resold the land he had purchased. He then bought land extending from Long Island Sound on the North, to Peconis Bay on the south. He settled in Aquebogue, about two miles west of Mattituck village and creek.
His first wife probably died in England and may have been ELIZABETH (MARGARET) YOUNGS, brother of Rev. John Youngs, but I have found no proof of this. They had one son, WILLIAM HALLOCK, who was born in England. His second wife was the widow of a Mr. Howell. There was no issue born to this union.
Note: According to some people, there is no proof that PETER HALLOCK (HOLYOKE) EVER EXISTED.
