For the purposes of this census, Brookhaven Hamlet (then known as Fire Place) and South Haven are considered to be the locale along the south shore of the Town of Brookhaven from the Carman's River west to the Motts Brook (the eastern boundary of what is now the Village of Bellport). It is bounded on the north by the properties along the highway now known as South Country Rd./Montauk Hwy., and on the south by the Great South Bay.

However, these districts were not delineated in the 1790 census.  And there is no way of knowing for sure where the boundaries are in the census listing.  For the purposes of this table, I assumed that the census enumerator recorded the family names more or less in order, moving from west to east.  It is also likely that the Samuel Carman family was the most easterly family before crossing the Carman's River, and that the Brewster family was likely the most westerly, with their lands both in the present Village of Bellport and in Fire Place (or perhaps what some purist might call West Fire Place or even East Bellport).  I have therefore assumed that all the families listed between these two names lived in the Fire Place/South Haven Hamlets.  Fire Place/South Haven residents are therefore found on two pages of the Town of Brookhaven census.  However, since I wanted to keep the census pages intact, I list families both east and west of the somewhat arbitrary boundaries -- those individuals which were likely to have been east of the Carman's River (then known as the Connecticut River) are indicated as being in "Mastic/Manor of St. George" and those likely to have been to the west of Motts Creek as being in "Ocombomack (now Bellport) and west."   South Haven was the major commercial center at this time; these families would have had considerable interconnectedness with the pure Fire Place/South Haven stock.

This likely was Charles Jeffrey Brewster, and explains why his name did not otherwise appear in the 1790 census. The 1797 Map of the Town of Brookhaven records a Brewster at the eastern edge of Ocombomack Neck (modern Bellport); this map entry was likely Charles Jeffrey Brewster (per Bigelow). Charles Jeffrey "Brewster" did not appear in the 1790 census. "Burster" was an alternate rendition of "Brewster." Hamlet People

This is likely the widow of a Hulse, not the Abigail Hulse, wife of Nathan Rose Barteau. Nathan was living in 1790. Perhaps she is Abigail Sweezey, widow of Nathan Hulse. Hamlet People

This is likely a Hulse. While Bigelow (1968) reports that a Richard Hulse bought lots 31 and 32 in 1706 (p. 4), it seems unlikely that it could be this Richard because of the age, but possibly a son.

While it is not proved that this Lewis is the same as the Lewis Conkline which appears in the Hamlet People database, it seems likely. While some compilations place the Lewis Conklin family on Shelter Island throughout their lifetimes, others are less certain. The family members in this census fit the young family. No other Lewis Conkline is recorded in the 1790 census for Suffolk County. His sister, Rachael Conklin Smith, is mentioned in the South Haven Presbyterian Church minutes; both she and her husband Benjamin Smith (see) were buried in Center Moriches (Beachfern Road Cemetery), Brookhaven, Suffolk, NY.
