Tradition says that Peter1 Hallock came with twelve other heads of families to New Haven in 1640; same season crossed the sound and landed at Southold, Peter being the first to step on shore at a spot still called Hallock's Neck. Also, that having bought a large tract of land of the Indians, he went back to England for his family. Wife was unwilling to come, but Peter promised to give her two daughters (by a former husband) considerable land, and the family all came over in two or three years; meantime the Indians had resold his land, and another party had possession. The records of this period are lost. In 1654, according to Southold records, Wm.2 Hallock was in possession of a large property there, and was quite a man of business in the town. He died in 1688 or 1689. Will makes his wife Margaret executrix. The children named in the will were:
John3 1679 m. Abigail Sweezey, dau. of John, he
d. at Westbury 25, 5, 1737.
Thomas,3 Mary,3 Martha,3 Sarah.3
Peter,3 William, wife named Mary.
Elisabeth3 m. 1st Harrud, m. 2d 1675 Richard Howell.
Abigail3 m. David Horton.
The Sweezey's were Friends from Salem, Mass., and Wm. Hallock, who was a strong Church of England man, disiniherited his son John, and any others of
the family to all time, if they married or contracted with any Quaker or any son or daughter of a Quaker. Years afterwards a grandson of this disinherited John Hallock who lived in Westchester county gave very small portions to any of his children who married those not Quakers.
