Deed between Dr. Samuel Thompson and William Jayne, May 22, 1801
In the Thompson genealogy (see the transcript) is the statement, "Dr. Samuel4 Thompson, oldest son of Jonathan3, and great-grandson of John the first settler, was born October 2, 1738, and possessed the paternal estate at Asford, or, as it is now called, Setauket, on which he spent his life." Apparently it is part of this property that was sold. Dr. Samuel Thompson lived in the house known as Thompson House in which his grandfather Samuel was the first known occupant. The house is still in Setauket. The William Jayne, Esq. who purchased the land might be the William Jayne, Esq. whose cemetery stone is shown here. Punctuation was not used often and some wording is repeated.
