Monhegan Obituaries

History

It was Monhegan traders who taught English language to Samoset, the sagamore who in 1621 startled the Pilgrims by boldly walking into their new village at Plymouth, Massachusetts and saying: "Welcome, Englishmen." Despite success as a fishing and trade center, Monhegan would be caught in the conflict between New England and New France for control of the region. A trading post was built to conduct business with the Indigenous peoples of the Americas particularly in the lucrative fur trading trade. Summer months bring artists and tourists on a daily ferry to see amazing ocean views and migrating island birds. During King William's War, the island was captured for the French people in 1689 by Jean-Vincent d'Abbadie de Saint-Castin de Saint-Castin. Cod was harvested from the rich fishing grounds of the Gulf of Maine, then dried on fish preservation flakes before shipment to Europe.
