The executors of Henry Pearsall instead of dividing his lands among his sons conveyed it all to Nathaniel who subsequently gave each brother his share. The deed to Thomas, the youngest, follows:--Deed of gift made this eighteenth of September in ye year of our Lord 1692 witnesth that I Nathaniel Pearsall of Hempstead on Long Island in Queens County in ye Province of New York have given to my brother Thomas Pearsall of ye townand county afore said several parcels of land and meadow for several good causes and considerations mee here-unto especially moving and do now give a confirmation of ye same as followeth I do give to my sd brother half my meadow and land in Washburns Neck in quantity and quality and also half my meadow at Hurngry Hollow Harbor and one quarter part of my meadow at Far Rockaway ar what shall be laid in ye lue of it and one fourth or quarter part of seventy eight acres of land near adjoining to his dwelling house in ye north woods and ye division of ye orchard to remain as divided and divided and a part of right of old Rainers which is given to my sd brother and my brother George equal alike which they have taken up land for on ye east side ye harbor path also to my sd brother Thomas Pearsall I give one quarter part of my hollows and divisions on ye plains and one third part of my right on Cow Neck all which above sd I do freely give and dispose from me my heirs or assigns to my sd brother Thomas Pearsall to him his heirs or assigns to have and to hold forever as his or their own right and in testimony of ye premeses I have hereunto set my hand and fixed my seal ye day and year above wrighten. Signed sealed and delivered--Nathaniel Pearsall, witnesses Solomon Seaman, John Williams, Joseph Pettit.
Apparently Nathaniel gave his brother Daniel more than is share as we find the latter making a substantial gift to his brother Thomas.

+ Richard Valentine, the earliest of the name in New York, was born about 1610, reportedly in Lancashire, England. Some authorities state that he was a lineal descendant of Richard Valentine of the Parish of Eccles, the ancestor of the New England Valentines. He came to this country with the Winthrop-Saltonstall party, going first to Watertown, Massachusetts. He moved on to Wethersfield, Hartford colony, and from there crossed Long Island Sound to Hempstead, Long Island, in 1644. The first division of land among the sixty-six original properitors-- one of whom was Richard Valentine--took place in 1644. On 14 March 1658 he purchased an additional five acres of meadow from Thomas Ellison. The original homestead is said to have been six hundred acres.
