  • ID: I2185
  • Name: James* (1) COCK
  • Sex: M
  • Change Date: 27 JAN 2014
  • Birth: ABT 1650?
  • Event: Note 1659
  • Note: arrived in Cromwell's Bay, now Setaucket (Long Island, NY), probably from the West Indies, according to the book cited. 1 2
  • Event: Land Transaction 1684
  • Note:
    "1684 Buys of Susconeman, Sawmus and Quaropin, land, de-
    scribed as bounded by "ye cartpath by ye Rock at ye head of ye Hol-
    low, to muscheda cove, ye East bounder, ye highway to muscheda
    Cove ye North bounder, ye highway or cartpaUi from Matinecock
    as now laid out on ye west side of Benjamin and Steven Burchall's
    lands his west bounds, and ye said Burchall's lands ye south bound-
    er; acres more or less." This with the addition of the Burchall
    (Birdsall) lands acquired later, constituting the Piping Rock farm,
    given to his son James.

    1684/5 Deed extinguishing the Indian claim of title to Matinecock
    land, by the Indians to James Cock, John Underbill and John Feke,
    (and seventeen others) "all our land unsold upon Matinecock
    bounded East by Oysterbay Ancient Purchase, on ye South by ye
    line between Hempstead, and Oysterbay, on ye west by ye highway
    from Musketa Cove to ye Plains, which highway is on ye west side
    of ye Cedar Swamp and north by several men's lands formerly
    sold by ye Indians".

    1687 Gives to son John Cock, 31 acres of land on south side of
    the Hollow or Littleworth old Footpath, being part of his dividend
    in the foregoing deed.

    Note, The Rock heretofore referred to as "at ye head of ye Hol-
    low [or road] to Muscheda Cove", and subsequently applied to the
    "Piping Rock Farm" is on the north side of the highway to Mus-
    keta (now Glen) Cove, at the south east corner of the premises of
    Mr. Pate. The origin of the name is in doubt, but in one rendering
    of the name on the Town records as "ye pipe and tree Rock" there
    seems to be possible ground for the tradition that here the aborigines
    and the settlers smoked the pipe of Peace. "
