Cape Cod Eastham Was Once Nauset

The Town of Eastham on Cape Cod was first known as Nauset. The early history of the town shows that it once also included Wellfleet, Orleans, and certain parts of Truro and Harwich.

Actually, Eastham was settled in 1644, twenty-four years after the coming of the Pilgrims, when Thomas Prince and seven householders decided to remove there from the Plymouth colony. Seven years later, 1651, the town was incorporated.

Eastham has been the site of many of The most interesting historical incidents recorded in Cape Cod history. It is the town which passed a law that, since crows were such a downright nuisance, no bachelor would be permitted to marry until he had shot his quota.
