Biography of John Budd, from the Frost Family Genealogy, pp 343-4
 
Note: It is sometimes difficult to ascertain if certain records belong to John Budd, Sr. or John Budd, Jr. nmt
 

         "JOHN BUDD was in New Haven, 1639, as a Freeman. The first we know of him on Long
         Island is in October, 1640. "Mr. Jones hath the lott granted unto him which was formerly
         granted unto John Budd of Yeancock (Southold)." In 1648 "it is ordered that John Budd
         have granted him 4 acres off new ground added to his other ground to make an 8 acre lot."
         In 1650 he is mentioned at Southampton as owner of a water mill and running the same, and
         is called Lt. His name occurs there no more after 1651. He moved to Westchester County,
         1660, on account of some difficulty with his neighbors. The Budd house is still standing. In
         1679 Lt. Budd sold it to John Hallock and it now belongs to Jonathan W. Huntting.
         John Budd figures in Indian deeds in Rye, May 10, 1673, and granted, 1681-2, a meadow
         in Rye to Jon. Horton.
 
         [Note: I have seen in another reference that the "trouble with neighbors" may have been due
         to him following Quaker beliefs. nmt]
