Note: Introduction Section of Youngs Family book. "Rev. John Youngs was the "first settler," and the leading spirit of the town. His son, Col. John Youngs, was the most prominent man on Long Island, in the entire colonial period; and the latter's brother, Benjamin Youngs, was the town clerk and recorder. Both of them were patentees of the town. In the next generation Benjamin Youngs (son of Christopher) was captain of the militia company, town clerk, recorder, and judge. In the next generation Joshua Youngs was a judge and Rev. David Youngs was the first after Rev. John Youngs to enter the ministry. Thomas Youngs (son of Judge Joshua) was a judge and a member of the State Assembly. The Youngs commenced early to migrate from Southold, and for several generations there have been few of the name in Southold proper. They are numerous in Greenport and Orient, to the east, and at Aquebogue, Northville, Riverhead and other towns to the west; but the greater number are spread out over all the Union."
