The first settlers came from Suffolk, Essex, and Lincolnshire, in England. The first grant made by the Court of Assistants of lands in Mistick was made to Governor Winthrop in 1631. The record says: Six hundred acres of land, to be set forth by metes and bounds, near his house in Mistihild or children as it shall please God to give me by my wife, Rebeccah.
