About Stephen Hand, Sr.

It must have been Stephen Hand for whom Stephen Hand's Path was named.

On Nov. 3, 1668, he granted the Town of East Hampton leave to put a highway through his woodland, 12 feet wide, "only to drive carts and oxen in yoake & to ride & lead a horse through; not to drive cattle through out of yoake".

Stephen was Constable 1674 and 1680 and in 1683 was chosen one of a committee to join Southampton in selecting a representative for the First Colonial Assembly under Governor Dongan.
