“The Manors of Long Island,” a new film directed by Dr. Gaynell Stone, documents the 13 Manors of Suffolk County, offering a new perspective on the settlement of Long Island, which boasts the greatest number of Manors in one spot in the New World. Manors, created by grants from Colonial governors, gave owners of large properties certain rights over their domain. In her research, Dr. Stone discovered many more manors than were previously known to scholars. This film is a sequel to “The Sugar Connection: Holland, Barbados, Shelter Island,” the story of Sylvester Manor of Shelter Island and its role in the 17th-century global trade.
