NUGGET #73

Dutch settlers: John Sturtevant, Sturdevant or Stirtivant, a native of Holland, was among the original proprietors. He died before he was able to develop his Main Street lot and 22 years after his death in 1718, the land was set aside for building an Anglican or Episcopal church. Dutchman Swamp may be named for his family, or for the Dykman (Dikeman, Dykeman) family, early settlers of the Scotland district who were probably of Dutch ancestry.
