Cape Cod Setting Out For Greener Pastures

Three hundred fifty plus years ago land on Cape Cod could be had simply for the moving in on it. This is what started up new villages.

After a new town had been formed, certain of the more venturesome, or those who felt crowded, set out for themselves to fresher fields and started towns of their own.

This happened at Barnstable after about twenty years. The first ones to leave were Quakers whose customs and beliefs did not fit in too well with the neighbors. A small number from Barnstable set out to Suckanessett in 1660 to form their own village. Later the town was called Falmouth.
