History: Lion Gardiner came from England in 1635 to Saybrook, CT, the settlement of Earl of Warwick patentees at the mouth of the Connecticut River, and built a fort there. Born in 1636, his son, David, was the first white child born in the settlement. Lion later bought the Isle of Wight, now Gardiners Island, from the Indians, and moved his family there until 1653, when he bought land in what is now Easthampton, Long Island, NY.
