[footnote: John Jagger was one of the early settlers in Southampton. His home lot, left to son Jeremiah, is on the west side of main street of Southampton. The "Close on the north side of Samuel Jones close" is on the east side of the road to North sea, nearly opposite the road to Seponack. On this the "old Jagger house" was built in 1707, and was a well-known landmark till it was burned a few years since. The ruins still remain. The beach lot was next the beach, on the west side of Town pond, and is now covered by the beach banks. "The close lying between Samuel Coopers land and Isaac Halseys" is on the west side of the road to North sea. The railroad runs through it.]
