History

In 1654, the Matinecock Native Americans sold 3,000 acres (12 km2) of what is now called Lloyd Neck to English settlers from Oyster Bay. The Matinecock referred to the region as Caumsett ("place by sharp rock"). In 1676, James Lloyd acquired the neck, which was then taken over by his son Henry. Henry Lloyd farmed the land and erected a house, which still survives in Caumsett State Park. After his death in 1763, his son Joseph built the Joseph Lloyd Manor House, which he was forced to abandon by the British during the Revolutionary War. The British built several fortifications in the neck, including Fort Franklin. Henry Lloyd IV was the last Lloyd to own the estate, in 1841. In the 1880s, it became a stop for steamboats coming from New York City, bringing tourists and wealthy New Yorkers.

In 1885, Lloyd Neck, which was then part of the town of Oyster Bay and had earlier been known as Queens Village, seceded from Queens County and became part of the town of Huntington in Suffolk County.[3][4]

The 1900s ushered the era of the Long Island Charles Lindbergh, Jerry Seinfeld and Billy Joel have each lived on the Neck for a time. Currently many of these estates have been adapted for other uses. Marshall Field III's estate is now Caumsett State Historic Park, and the Conklin estate is a Roman Catholic seminary. Others have become a county park and a wildlife refuge. Charles Robertson's estate is now the Banbury Center, a small conference center of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.

In 1969 the Long Island Lighting Company proposed locating a nuclear power plant in the community. Local opposition quickly defeated the plan, with Ferdinand Eberstadt donating his 80-acre (320,000 m2) estate to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to become Target Rock National Wildlife Refuge.
