Thomas Osmun, the immigrant

Nothing can be found as to his entry into what is now called the United States of America. We found many men named Thomas Osborn. But none called Osman/Osmun. None named Thomas.

The first record is that of his marriage to Martha Purrier in 1653 and then a few years later the land deeds.

15 Mar 1658 he gave a deposition "swearinge be De Holy Evangelists that he with his noted father in law, William Purrier, and his brother in law James Reeve, did go adventuringe in Chowan country1 for sperrits resin (turpentine) in ye yeare 1636 and did meet William Salmon, Thomas Reeve, Thomas Terrill, Thomas Benedict, Henery Whiteney, and others who had come hither from ye Summer Islaes and ye said adventure failinge through ye overplus of adventurers, who had come thither prior to their coming. They did set sale with one Sutherland to a country the said Sutherland had from his master one James ffarrett by letters patent from ye Earle of Starlinge. And ye said Osman does father depose that ye said company with others whose names he has forgotten did set downe on ye necke called Hashammocmock and did ingage in distillinge sperrits resin from ye trees in ye greate swampe and further Sutherland, Salmon, Whitney and Benedict did from ye beginning owne ye said necke in equal shares and did so from our first settinge downe in ye yeare 1636-7.

Barnabas Horton -  Thomas Moor

This deposition is in contention since it is said that Wayland Jefferson was trying to prove Southold to be the oldest established town on Long Island. It is said that Jefferson, a noted historian, was notorious for concocting things. Whether this is true or not, the following is inserted for you to make up your own mind.

1 Chowan Count(r)y not a country but is in the NE pt. of North Carolina and lying north of Abermarle Sound. The sound opens up to the Atlantic Ocean and following the coast line would be a short distance to Long Island.


"William Alexander, the first Earl of Sterling, courtier and poet, had a grant to all of Long Island. Farrett's power of attorney (STR1:112 15 Aug 1640) comtemplated the approval of his grants by Gov. Wintrop of Mass. Wintrop did not approve of removals from Mass. but heartily opposed them. The grant to Farrington1 was by deed dated 26 Aug 1639 and was approved and confirmed by the Earl of Sterling and doubtless became the basis of the first regular settlement of Southold" pg 23/4 Carl Boyer Ships Passenger Lists National and New England (1600-1825)

1 Did someone just type the name Farrett wrong?

William Alexander, the first Earl of Sterling died in London, "impoverished" 1640. Dictionary of National Biography

William Salmon, age 25, came on "Mathew" from London,Richard Goodland, Mr per warrant from ye Earl of Carlisle 21 May 1635. Thomas Terrill, age 18 and Thomas Reeve 24, came on the same ship.

"These p'sents witness that William Salmon of Hashamamuck, alias Neshugguncer, have sold unto Henry Whitney, Edward Tredwell and Thomas Bendedick three parts of all his upland lying betwixt Toms Creeke so called by the English, and Mr. Goodyeares land, reaching to a fresh ponnd lying by the North sea with an Island of trees Standinge in it, with all the marsh ground and moweinge land lying by the aforesaid Toms Creek from the one end to the other - in the wt meadowe the aforesaid Wm Salmon is to have noe share- excepting to himselfe all the other meadowe ground, lying in teh same cumpeste of land, with the Neck of Land lyinge against the harbour on the South,wch neck of land hee is to fence is to beugin at the now dwelling house of John Corey and to runn straight, poyntinge at the wadeing place, leaveinge out all the meadowes sold to the aforesaid parties. (Henry Whitney, Edward Tredwell and Thomas Benedick paying to William Salmon thirty pounds for same.)

Sealed and delivered in the p'sence of John and Ann Corey.

William Salmon, a blacksmith, married Katharine, the widow of Matthew Sunderland before Apr 1659 when he moved to Hashamomack. Matthew Sinderland was a seaman of Boston and an agent of James Farrett. Sunderland died without issue. By William Salmon marrying Katharine, he took full possession of Hashamomack by the time of his death. (Salmon Records NYG&B:1916:344) The above statement is confirmed in Southold Town Records in the sale of land by Hannah Salmon, daughter of Sarah, former wife of William Salmon, "my father deceased and also of Katherine Salmon, his former wife, who was formerly the wife of one Mathew Sinderland, a seaman, deceased". Sarah is now wife of John Conckline, 11 May 1675 (STR:1:215)

Thomas recorded his first deed for land to build a brickworks in 1656. He received his land from William Salmon. He does disappear from the Southold area early and goes to Hashamomack. Thomas spelled Osmond received his dividend of land in Oysterponds 20 Nov 1661. He is in the Estimate 16 Sep 1675 (DHNY)
