In 1834 a road was built through the middle of the farmlands from Sayville to Blue Point and the road was named Middle Road.
At first the Bayport community was called Middle Road Village, but then renamed Southport.
Since there was another village upstate called Southport, the name had to be changed again.
When the Post Office was set up in 1858, the name was changed to Bayport.

The Bayport Heritage trip and guided tour through Green-Wood Cemetery, brought us to the plot of the Roosevelt family, and the headstone of John Ellis Roosevelt,
the owner of Meadow Croft.
Our guided tour also included the Bourne family mausoleum and other historical sites.
It was a lovely day, and an educational trip into the past.
