with 300 acres of land adjoining said mill, now in possession of said Roger Brett ; also certain parcels of land now in possession of John Terboss, John Buys, Casper Prime, Peter De Boys, and Yowreb Springstead; also 5,000 acres lying and being in any part of the reserved premises.' The money borrowed on the first bond was probably used by Roger Brett and wife in erecting a house and grist-mill the following year. This was the first mill built in Duchess County, and for a long time Orange County paid tribute to Madame Brett's mill, for by this name it was known far and wide. Roger, the husband of Madame Brett, was killed in the year 1721 by a blow from the boom of a sloop, in which he was coming from New York to Fishkill. Madame Brett survived him for nearly half a century, but never again married. She died in 1764." - SMITH's History of Duchess County.
