[NOTE.--Jonathan Raynor was one of the largest land-owners in the town of Southampton. He owned a €150 right, or a full Lot, of Commonage, which gave him large tracts in the various Divisions. His homestead was on the west side of Main street, in the village of Southampton, and is the farm owned in late years by Thomas Nicoll White, and now by various owners, who have elegant Country residences. A part of the lands in the western part of the town is still owned by his descendants. His homestead in Southampton was sold by his grandson, James Raynor, to Elias Pelletreau, in 1812. This included the lot mentioned, on the east side of the street, and next north of "Gin Lane," and lately owned by Hon. James H. Pierson and Henry Sayre. The land at "Seponack Old ground" is the farm at Tuckahoe, lately owned by the heirs of Charles Payne. It is bounded west by Shinecock Hills. The "Frog pond close" is at the south end of Southampton village, next to the ocean, and owned in late years by Albert Foster. An ancient lane led to it called "Frog Pond Lane," and closed many years since. The "Frog pond" was at the west end of it, but was long since filled up by sand and entirely obliterated. The "Frog pond lane" was directly opposite the east side of Main street, and separated the Raynor land, and Herrick land next north, from the land of the Mackie family, now Nelson.--W. S. P.]
