Sandford & Sons: Legacy of a Bridgehampton Family

17 Meeting House Lane
Southampton, New York 11968

Young Ezekiel Sandford appeared in Southampton by 1670, having left Hartford in search of new beginnings. The town granted him land in 1678 and a contract to build Sagg Bridge in 1686 in a place later named Bridgehampton. For nearly 350 years this history has helped shape the stories passed down by 12 generations of the family, which includes such illustrious leaders as Nathan Sanford (1777-1838) a candidate for vice president running with Henry Clay. This talk begins at 12 noon and will explore how family history can foster familial attachments and cohesion over time. Seating is limited, RSVP by calling 631 283-2494. Free admission.
