Shippan Point (or Shippan)

User Rating: / 1

Shippian Point is located on the most southern part of Stamford, CT which sits on a peninsula going into the Long Island Sound.  Stamford which used to be known as Rippowam was sold by the Native Americans to the English Settlers.  In 1640 the land was sold to Nathenael Turner of the Quenepiocke. 

Quenepiocke sounds very similar to Quinnipiac.  Could there be some kind of relationship between them?  The Land was sold to Turner in Exchange for a dozen of each Coats, hoes, hatchets, knives.  Now Shippan is a wealthy neighborhood with large house looking out to Manhattan across the Long Island Sound.  If only the Native Americans knew how beautiful the land was and how resourceful it could have been they might have not sold it.
