Patchoag Indians (where they divide in two, referring to two streams forming one river – Trumbull). A tribe on the south coast of Long Island, New York, extending from Patchogue to Westhampton. Besides their principal village, bearing the same name, they had others at Fireplace, Mastic, Moriches, and Westhampton. The Connetquot Indians were a part of this tribe. The survivors are known as Poosepatuck.
Described by Thompson1 as a semi-tribe or family of the Patchoag tribe occupying in 1683 the east side of Connetquot River, about Patchogue, in Suffolk County, Long Island, New York. In another place he includes this territory as part of that belonging to the Patchoag. The name seems to be a dialectal form of Connecticut.
