Biography

Richard Woodhull (2) was born October 9, 1649. He also was chosen magistrate of his native town, and was equally faithful to civil and religious interests of the people. From the records we learn that at a town meeting, April 10, 1697, it was fully agreed that Mr. Justice Woodhull, of Brookhaven, and Justice Smith, of Smithtown, should jointly make arrangements with the Rev. George Phillips faithfully to perform the duty of minister of the gospel among them during the time of his natural life, etc. At another time it was ordained that one hundred acres of land be laid out for Rev. George Phillips by Richard Woodhull, surveyor.

(An deed of Indian lands was granted to Richard Wodhull

by the Sachem Tobackus, 08 Dec 1690. 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.)
