Note: In 1683 Queens County was established with Oyster Bay as one of it's towns. In 1898 the western portion of Queens County became a borough of New York City. In 1899 the remaining 70% of Queens County which includes Oyster Bay was renamed Nassua County. The name of the county comes from an old name for Long Island, which was at one time named Nassua, after Dutch William of Nassau, Prince of Orange ( who later became William III of England).
