Trustee history early years
In the year 1639, eight men from Massachusetts executed an agreement known as “The Disposal of the Vessel” for the purpose of establishing a permanent settlement on Long Island. The signatories of this agreement, who were later increased to 18, were known as the “undertakers”. The agreement itself contained provisions for the establishment of a company, the procurement of a vessel and methods to be employed in finding a site and distributing the land.
