nings' coiiior to the soutli-eaHt corner of Williamson's lot 
we find tlio road too narrow, and we have directed the own- 
ers on each side of the road to throw out their land and to 
leave three rods for the road, which they have agreed to 
do. Then we proceeded to Joel Reeves' corner and find 
the road too narrow almost all the way, until we came to 
the house of David Rose, Esq., and we directed the owners 
to throw out their lands and make the road three ])oles 
wide, which width we have established the road to be from 
the Clay Pit water aforesaid, all the way down to the har- 
bor at Jeli'ery's Creek. Have also established the road 
from North Sea to Sag-Harbor to be and remain three poles 
wide, and wherever we have found the road too narroAv any 
where between North Sea and Caleb Loper's we have or- 
dered the owners of the land adjoining to throw it out and 
leave the road three rods Avide. On the eleventh day of 
March, liSlo, we, John P. Osborn and William Herrick, 
two of the Commissioners as aforesaid, notified John Haines, 
Samuel Jagger, Benjamin Haines and Joel Reeves, to throw 
out their lands which they had taken out of the road, and 
each of them agreed to make the road three rods wide 
against their hinds and meadows and to have it finished by 
the first day of May next. Thus we have established the 
road as aforesaid from the Clay Pit water to the harbor at 
Jeffery's Creek, three poles wide. This is our return, made 
the eleventh day of March, 1813.

southward line thereof to begin at the bottom of Brushy 
Neck hollow, on the south side of the road now in use, and

Whereas, doubts may arise whether the within written 
deed conveys to Samuel Jagger, his heirs and assigns, the 
one equal undivided half part of the lands, buildings and 
mill stream therein particularly described, the said deed 
having been drawn through mistake to Micaiah Herrick 
alone, and afterwards the name of Samuel Jagger was in-

deceased. Now Know all men by these presents, that I, 
Micaiah Herrick, do admit that the said Samuel Jagger, his 
heirs and assigns, were the rightful owners of one-half the 
property in said deed described. And if the same is not 
by said deed conveyed to him, his heirs and assigns, I do 
by these presents quit claim the same to him, his heirs 
and assigns forever. 

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand aud seal

whereas the said County Judge, on the 27th day of April

ance of an appointment for that purpose duly made, did 
attend and hear the ^^roofs and allegations of the parties on

twenty years upward, preceding the 21st day of March, 
1797, the description and location of which road or high- 
way, as so ascertained by them, is contained in the said 
order, as also in the petitions or notices of appeal hereto 
annexed. 

And whereas Frederick Hallock and Edward Griffin of 
the said village of Quogue, have within the limited time 
therefor, respectively appealed from the said determination 
and order of the said Commissioners, to the undersigned 
County Judge of the said county of Suffolk, which aj)peal 
is hereto annexed. Whereupon the said County Judge did 
give due notice to the appellants, and the said Commission- 
ers that he would hold a court for the hearing of said ap- 
peal, at the house of John A. Post, in the said village of 
Quogue, on the 19th day of August, 1856, at 9 o'clock in 
the forenoon ; at which time and place, the said parties ap- 
peared before him with their respective counsel ; and after 
receiving the premises described in the said order and after 
hearing the proofs and allegations of the said parties, the 
said County Judge came to the following conclusion or de- 
termination, viz : 

That there is every reason to believe prima facia from 
the survey the Commissioners have made of a short section 
of the main post road, lying immediately east of the said 
village of Quogue, extending in length a little over half-a- 
mile, making seven angles therein, and the width of the 
road varying at the respective angles from 12 rods wide to 
5 rods wide ; that they have erred in the conclusion they 
arrived at, viz : That this irregular and varying tract had 
been used as a highway for 20 years previous to 1797, and 
thus became a highway, and so it turned out in the evi- 
dence and investigation had in the appeals. Quite a por- 
tion of this road runs through the woods opposite the 



200 records: town of Southampton. 

premises of Frederick Hallock, one of the appellants. The 
present track of the travelled road runs on the north edge 
or margin of the highway as surveyed and described by the 
commissioners, and it apjoeared by the evidence, that this 
had been the travelled track from time immemorial, and 
here the commissioners, by their survey make it 10 and 12 
rods wide, embracing on the south side of this track a large 
quantity of heavy pine timber, where there is no evidence 
or indication of any old or former road or tracks, except 
those going southerly down to the Neck, and where there 
was an utter failure to produce any such evidence. And 
further, to show conclusively, that the Commissioners were 
wrong in the conclusion they came to and in the said order, 
by running out the lines on each side of the said road or 
highway as they have given them in the said order, the 
north line or boundary of the said highway, necessarily 
runs directly through the enclosed orchard, garden and 
front door-yard of the said Edward Griffin, one of the ap- 
pellants, and a part of his home lot, and the south line or 
boundary also runs through the enclosed home lot of the 
said Frederick Hallock, this the Commissioners acknowl- 
edged on the hearing of the appeal ; but said they did not 
know that their survey and order would have such an effect 
and that they did not intend any such thing. 

Still such is the fact, and so far as this is the case the 
order of the commissioners must necessarily be reversed, 
and upon a view of the whole matter from the evidence ad- 
duced before me on the hearing of these appeals ; I am 
constrained however, reluctantly to reverse the whole order 
of the said commissioners ill regard to this highway. In 
the mean time the County Judge does not feel himself 
authorized by the act to alter or define this road himself as 
he thinks the same ought to be altered or defined. All he

can do therefore, as it is certainly desirable that this at 
present indefinite highway sliould be ascertained, described 
and entered of record is to recommend to the Commission- 
ers of Highways under the power and duty conferred upon 
and required of them, in the 3rd sub-division of the 1st 
section of the act regulating highways and bridges, in the 
counties of Suffolk, (Queens and Kings to try again to as- 
certain, describe and enter of record, the highway in ques- 
tion, and in doing so not to have the same exceed 4, or at 
the most, 6 rods in width, and to run the same as straight 
as practicable. The undersigned believes this would satis- 
fy all parties in the immediate vicinity of this road and the 
people of the town generally.

In the mean time the undersigned would suggest and 
recommend to the apjDellaut, to change or alter his new 
fence commencing at the east side of the lane at a fence 
running easterly to Ogden's pond, so as that the said new 
fence shall run within, or east of the present foot-bridge 
across the ditch or creek. This alteration should be made 
for the accommodation of the public ; as it is impossible to 
say with precision where the exact line or boundary of the 
said highway or lane there should be.

Page 213. Before J. Lawrence Smith, County Judge of 
Suffolk County, in the matter of the appeal of Edward Grif- 
fin from an order of the Commissioners of Highways of the 
Town of Southampton. 

The Commissioners of Highways of the Town of South- 
ampton, made an order on the 31st day of March, 1857, re- 
citing that whereas a road leading from Great Creek to Lit- 
tle Creek in said town, now used as a public highway, was 
laid out on the lOtli day of December, 1757, but not suf- 
ficiently described of record, and ordering that said road be 
ascertained, described and entered of record, according to a 
survey which had been made under their direction, and 
they therein described the said road by courses and mon- 
uments. 

The road was not at the date of the order, of the width 
called for by the record, it having been encroached upon by 
tlie fences on either side, and as described by the Commis- 
sioners, would if opened, run through a part of the enclos- 
ure of Edward Griffin, and he appeals to the County Judge 
from said order. 

I visited the premis(is on the 20th of April last, and was 



224 records: town of southamptoK. 

attended by the appellant and the commissioners and by 
their respective counsel, and heard the proof and allega- 
tions. 

A preliminary question was raised by the counsel of the 
commissioners touching my jurisdiction in this matter, and 
I took the proof subject to this objection. The County 
Judge is an officer of limited jurisdiction, he possesses no 
power except such as is conferred by statute. We must go 
then to the statute to ascertain whether he has poAver to 
hear and decide this appeal. The act relating to highw^ays 
in Kings, Queens and Suffolk Counties passed Feb. 23d, 
1830, defines the powers and duties of Commissioners of 
Highwa3's. By reference to this statute we find their pow- 
ers and duties to be various, and among them (S 1 3) 
is the power to ascertain, describe and enter of record, such 
highways as have been laid out and not sufficiently de- 
scribed. 

The Commissioners acted under this clause in making 
the order appealed from, every decision of the commission- 
ers is not the subject of appeal. Section G6 of the statute, 
as amended (Laws 1857, p 422) provides " for appeals to 
" the County Judge by any person who shall conceive liim- 
" self aggrieved by any determination of the Commissioners 
" of Highways in laying out, altering, or discontinuing, or 
" in refusing to lay out, alter or discontinue any road, or in 
" regulating, or refusing to regulate any public landing, or 
•' watering place, or in determining, or refusing to determ- 
" ine that any road hath become a public highway. 

Here then, are clearly defined the cases over which the 
County Judge has jurisdiction by aj^peal, and unless this 
section embraces the case in question, the appeal and all 
proceeding under it, are void. 

Whether the Legislature intended to give an appeal in a 



records: town of Southampton. 225 

case like this, and unintentionally omitted to do so, may be 
questionable. There are perhaps many reasons to lead us 
to suppose that they did not. The question to be decided 
does not embrace any legal principle. It is a simple ques- 
tion of fact, as to where the road originally ran, a question 
upon which the commissioners who are presumed to act 
disinterestedly and who are familiar with the parties, the 
witnesses and the locality, can decide more intelligently and 
accurately than any judge or lawyer. But whatever may 
have been the reason for the omission, it is sufficient for the 
purpose of this case, that after a careful examination I am 
fully persuaded it does not come within the provision of the 
statute above cited, and having failed to find in the statute 
any other provision giving me jurisdiction over it, I cannot 
make any order in the premises. 

It may be a satisfaction to the parties, and I may there- 
fore perhaps be pardoned for volunteering to add that in 
cases involving purely questions of fact, the unanimous de- 
termination of the commissioners ought not to be disturbed 
unless it is made to appear that they acted unintelligently, 
or were aifected by interest or prejudice, or their determi- 
nation is very strongly against the v>'eight of evidence. I 
listened to the evidence in this case with much attention, 
and although it was conflicting on the subject of the h)c;v~ 
tion of the old track, I failed to find in it anything which 
satisfied me that the Commissioners erred in making the 
order appealed from.

Whereas the act regulating highways and bridges in the

of the several towns in those counties to cause such road 
used as highways, as shall have been laid out, but not suf-

so much of said order as directs the said road from the

main angle, nearly opposite Jeremiah Hedges, leading or 
running southerly as far as the burying-ground, to be cut 
down from its present width to five rods wide ; a copy of 
which order and notice of apj)eal is hereto annexed. And 
the County Judge having thereupon assigned a time and 
place for hearing said appeal, and having caused a notice 
thereof to be served pursuant to the Statute, and having 
attended on the part of said road appealed from on this 
fourth day of August, 1858,. at 7 o'clock in the afternoon, 
the time and place so assigned and having been attended by 
the said appellant, and to the road commissioners and their 
counsel, and heard the proofs and allegations of the j)arties 
and deliberated thereon, doth decide as follows : 

The order simply reduces the road to 5 rods in width 
without naming courses and distances, but the map pro- 
duced b}' the Commissioners on the hearing, indicates the 
lines established by them. The road as thus located, will 
tend greatly to injure the appearance and mar the beauty of 
the street. They have substituted crooked lines for lines 
now apparently straight. There are now curves in the 
street it is true, but owing to its great width they are not 
perceptible. 

When the road is reduced in width the angles will be- 
come more prominent, and I am quite satisfied that should 
the fences be erected on the lines proposed by the Commis- 
sioners, the community would be dissatisfied with it. It is 
plainly the duty of the Commissioners to make a highway 
as nearly straight as possible when they can do so conven- 
iently. The Commissioners in this case were actuated by 
the very laudable desire to equalize as much as possible 
among the adjoining owners, the surplus lands. But whilst 
they should zealously guard the interest and respect the 
wishes of individuals, they ought always to bear in mind 



230 records: town of Southampton. 

that iu sucli cases, those interest and wishes must give way 
to the public good. I think it decidedly for the interest of 
the public that the road should be located as indicated by 
the appellant in his notice of appeal, and I therefore deem 
it my duty to reverse so much of the order as is appealed 
from. 

It is therefore ordered that so much of the said order, as 
directs the said road, from the main angle nearly opposite 
Jeremiah Hedges, leading or running southerly as far as the 
burying-ground, to be cut down from its present width to 
five rods Avide, and the same is hereby reversed. August

RECORDS : 1:0 WN 01? SOtlTfiAMPTON. 230 

j>AGE 224. Before the Couuty Judge of Suffolk Couuty. 
In the matter of the appeal of David Pierson, from an 
order of the Commissioners of Higlnvavs, of the town of 
Southampton, redueinj:;- the width, and locatiii,n- the west 
line of Sagg Street. 

The Commissioners of Highways of the t(3wn of South- 
ampton, having made an order (without date) posted April 
0th, 1859, locating the east and west lines of Sagg Street, 
southerly from the main angle opposite the house of Jere- 
miah Hedges, and discontinuing all such portions of the 
old road or highway, as are not included between the said 
tAvo lines, and David Pierson having appealed from so 
much of the determination of the Commissioners as directs 
the closing up to five rods in width of that portion of the 
original road known as Sagg Street, and embraced in liis 
former appeal, lying between the main angle of said road, 
nearly opposite Jeremiah Hedges, extending or running 
southerly some 10 oi more rods to an angle made by them- 
selves (in their survey) opposite Jeremiah Hedges' house, 
and from this latter point starting and extending their lines 
Southerly instead of starting them directly from the main 
angle of the aforesaid original road, nearly opposite Jere- 
miah Hedges, in conformity with liis former appeal, and 
the decision of the ('Ounty Judge on tlie same, on the 4tli 
day of August last, a copy of Avhich order and notice of ap- 
peal is hereto annexed. And the County .Judge having 
thereupon assigned tlx^ lltli day of Jul}', 1S59, at 2 o'clock 
]'. M. on the said highway opposite the house of Jeremiah 
Hedges, as the time and place of hearing said appeal, and 
having caused notice thereof to be served on one of the 
Commissioners of Highways of said town, jjursuant to the 
statute. 

And having attended at the time and plac^ so assigned, 



240 RECOEDS: TOWN OF SOUTHAMPTON. 

and been attended by said appellant and by all of said 
commissioners and their counsel, and heard the proofs and 
allegations of the parties, and having deliberated thereon, 
doth decide and order as follows : 

The whole difficulty in this case seems to have arisen 
from a difference of opinion between the parties as to the 
true construction of my former decision and order, made on 
an appeal relative to this same road, and dated Aug. 4, 
1858. 

That decision reversed so much of the order of the com- 
missioners (posted June 11th, 1858) as directs the said 
road from the main angle nearly opposite Jeremiah Hedges 
running southerly as far as the burying-ground, to be cut 
down from its present width to five rods wide. 

The question now between the parties is. What was the 
main angle intended by that decision? The Commissioners 
contend that it was an angle made by them in their survey 
directly opposite Jeremiah Hedges' house, this angle ap- 
pears very prominently on both of the maps filed with their 
former order and with the order now appealed from. 

The appellant contends that the main angle is directly 
opposite the south end of Jeremiah Hedges' cow house. I 
have taken testimony as to where the main angle was at the 
time of the making of the former order of the Commission- 
ers and this testimony, together with the location of the 
premises and the shape of the several wagon tracks which 
traverse the road in that vicinity, leave no doubt in my 
mind, and I now decide that the main angle on the west 
side of said highway as it v/as at the time of making the 
first order, was about two feet southerly of, and very near 
to the southerly end of Jeremiah O. Hedges' cow house. 
And that the line running south 11 deg. 30 min. west in the 
two surveys of the said commissioners should have termi- 



records; town of Southampton. 241 

nated at a locust post at the end of the board fence lately 
erected by said Jeremiah Hedges, which post is on a line 
drawn parallel to, and about two feet southerly of said cow 
house. The objection raised to the former order was that 
the lines and points adopted by the commissioners, ren- 
dered the angles prominent, and made a crooked road of 
one before apparently straight. The whole order was not 
appealed from, and it was therefore in my power entirely 
to obviate this objection, but my decision was intended to 
obviate it as far as possible for me to do so. The construc- 
tion put upon that decision by the commissioners, will pre- 
vent it from affecting the purpose intended, and leave the 
most objectionable feature of.the lines adopted by the com. 
missioners even more prominent than before. I think they 
erred in adopting the angle made by them as the main ang- 
le, and starting their new lines from that point. I there- 
fore, am compelled again to reverse the decision as to the 
west line. The east line does not appear to be objected to 
and is not appealed from, excej)t (perhaps) so much of it as 
is embraced between the post above indicated, and the main 
adopted by the Commissioners and as to that part, I see no 
utility in, or necessity for disturbing it. 

It is therefore ordered that so much of said order made 
by the Commissioners of Highways of the Town of Sontli- 
ampton. Recorded and posted April 6th, 1859, as detorm* 
ines and directs that the west line of the road known as 
Sagg Street, in the said town of Southampton, between the 
angle opposite the house of Jeremiah O. Hedges, and the 
angle opposite the north-west corner of the burying ground 
Kliall be a line starting from the firbt mentioned point and 
running south 30 deg. west, 18 chains, 50 links to the point 
live rods west of the burying ground and as discontinues

1796, aud came to this towu in 1818, and acted for several 
years as a teacher in the schools of this village ; in 1821 he 
was married to Abbie, daughter of Thomas Sayre ; in 1825 
he was elected to the office of Town Clerk, which office he 
lield for a jieriod of twenty years ; in 1833 he was elected 
Justice of the Peace and continued to serve in that capacity 
and Supervisor for the remainder of his life. As a member 
of the community he was held in the greatest respect by his 
fellow citizens, and was faithful to the fullest extent in the 
performance of the duties of the offices intrusted to his 
charge ; as a friend and neighbor he was affable and kind ; 
pleasant and open in manners and wholly without the lofty 
reserve and mock dignity which generally accompanies real 
inferiority. And this notice is entered by one who having 
been treated by him with kindness has reason to revere his 
memory, and no better proof of his excellence and capacity 
need be produced than the fact that for a period of forty 
years he enjoyed the complete confidence of the people of 
the town of Southampton.
