The island of Nantucket was settled in the 1640s by English Puritans who had grown discontented with the rule of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay. This work consists of detailed genealogies of the majority of the First Purchasers of Nantucket (the original owners of the island, as they were called). It is excerpted from Alexander Starbuck’s much longer “History of Nantucket County, Island, and Town,” constituting the final 200 pages of that opus. The volume begins with biographical sketches of the First Purchasers.
