(A deed of Indian lands was granted to Richard Wodhull by the Sachems
Mentauk and Woneco, 20 Jul 1657. Several other land transactions between
the town of Brookhaven and Richard are also recorded. The earliest of these
I presume to be with the elder immigrant Richard, the later with his son.)

"The Woodhulls in America are the descendants of Richard Wodhull I., who
was born, probably, at Thenford, Northamptonshire, England, September
13, 1620. (See Benjamin P. Thompson's "History of Long Island," also
"American Ancestry," and many other references.) The date of Richard
Wodhull's marriage, and his wife Deborah's surname are uncertain...The
exact date of Richard Wodhull's arrival in this country is uncertain,
but it was prior to April 29th, 1648, as on that date he witnessed a
deed at Easthampton, Long Island... He finally settled permanently at
Setauket Harbor, then called Cromwell Bay, or Ashford, in the year
1656...The exact date of his death is uncertain, it, however, must have
been after October, 1690..."
(A marker raised much later cites 17 Oct 1690).
