Uncas' Map of a Portion of the Pequot Territory

In New London, this 4th of August 1662, Uncas, sagamore of Mohegan, by request of Captain George Denison, appeared before me, and this above draught being drawn, he declared to my understanding and affirmed that at what time the English did conquer the Pequots, their country did reach to a brook called Wexcodawa, which brook falls unto the end of that water or pond called Nekeequoweese, and that the land falling between that and the pond called Teapanock, called by them Muxqutag, is and was then Pequot land.  The same is affirmed by Cassasinamon and that he, being then a boy, used there to drive their (to say for the Pequots) deer into that neck of land, also Nesahegen affirmeth the same, and that eastward of that brook Wexcodawa is and was Narragansett land belonging to Ninigret and, his heirs, by marriage of Harman Garrett’s sister.
