"JOSEPH Horton HOUSE-1653"
"Joseph Horton, eldest son of Barnabas Horton the first, was born in Mouseley, Leicestershire, ENGLAND; came to this country with his father and his brother Benjamin. He married Jane BUDD, daughter of John BUDD, Southold early settler. Joseph's house stands on its original homesite. When he departed from Southold for Rye, NY, Barnabas, his father, bought his home for another son, Joshua (married Mary Tuthill) who was carpenter, constable and Town Patentee of 1676. Various Hortons have held this homestead for seven generations. In recent years a silver spoon was found in the cellar, probably buried there for safety with other treasure during Revolutionary days. This very small cellar shows its centuries of age: rough log beams, summer beam, and pegged timbers; shell, hair, clay crumbling mortar appearing between the stones of the walls. With difficulty one stands upright. The house is a strong built, double Cape Cod which has retained its fundamental 17th century proportions. Once, two large chimneys were at either end with interior fireplaces and brick oven. Though remodelled and changed in the interior, the house remains one of the notable old homes of Southold."
