The European colonizers arrived in early 1600s in Long Island and discovered the island being settled by Algonquian Group’s Native Americans who are separated loosely in bands and put together into a union    under the headship of Montauk Sachem, a person regarded as a ruler from the town to the island’s western end. This ruler was recognized by the Europeans and Indians as the island’s ruling family. The main village of Montauk that likely gave birth to the tribe’s name was about Fort Pond, which is close to the Montauk Point.

The king of the Montauks, Stephen Talkhouse (or Stephen Pharaoh), is a champion race walker, veteran of the civil war, and whaler. The early European colonizers in East Hampton were English women and men who arrived in this town from Massachusetts. They acquired the land in 1648 from Montauk Indians that stretched from the eastern boundary of Southampton to Napeague beach. In 1665, Montauk tribe’s grand sachem, Wyandanch, provided the inhabitants with the privilege to herd their farm animals in the town. Montauk Indians sold the town in 1686 to some settlers from East Hamptons who have possession of the property in mutual trust for practically 200 years.
