This highly regarded social history of Nantucket treats the purchase and settlement of the island, the early proprietors, and various events in Nantucket history, such as Nantucket's role in the Revolution. The balance of the work consists of histories of some thirty founding families. Genealogists should also consult the appendices for a list of Quakers who visited Nantucket between 1664 and 1847.
