Research Notes

There are several Thomas Reeve's in the small town of Southold, New York in this time period. This Thomas Reeve who died in 1682 and was married to Agnes Rider was most likely the son of Reeve_Thomas_4206. Of primary evidence is a 1686 land record and related map which shows the late Reeve_Thomas_4206’s home lot being now divided and occupied by Reeve_Thomas_4206’s son John Reeve, and by "Annes" Reeve, widow of Thomas Reeve the subject of this TRP person page. Wesley Baker discusses this in his Study of the Reeve Family of Southold... (page 19, item 62). An abstract of the referenced land record is in Southold Town Records, Vol II, Page 369
