Thomas Dongan, the fourth royal
governor of New York, was granted an 800 acre parcel of
land in 1683 that included New Hyde Park. It was known
as "Dongan's Farm." Dongan built a mansion on what is
now Lakeville Road. In 1691 Dongan fled to New England
and then Ireland, as
King James II and his Catholic forces failed to
regain power in England and Ireland.
In 1715, Dongan's estate was sold to
George Clark (who was Secretary of the Provence of New
York). He named it Hyde Park in honor of his wife, Ann
Hyde. Clark sold the property in 1783 and in the early
19th century is was parceled up and sold as farm land.
Raising cattle was a chief agricultural enterprise from
Dongan's time until the mid-19th century, when cattle
farming in the expanding American West forced the
farmers into other pursuits.
When a post office opened in 1871,
the name was changed from Hyde Park to New Hyde Park to
avoid confusion with the
upstate Hyde Park.
