Oyster Bay, home to Job Wright, was settled by the Dutch, and was the boundary between the Dutch New Amsterdam colony and the English New England Colonies.

Many Quakers came to Oyster Bay, escaping persecution from Dutch authorities in New Amsterdam. These included Elizabeth Feake and her husband Captain John Underhill who she converted to Quakerism. Other notable Quakers to settle in Oyster Bay were the brothers John Townsend and Henry Townsend. [1]
