This was a series of articles published in the first few volumes of the New England Historical and Genealogical Register. "The First Settlers of Barnstable, MA 1640-1748" was published in volumes 2, 3 and 4. "The First Settlers of Chatham, MA 1702-1748" in volume 7, and "The First Settlers of Eastham, MA 1649-1748" in volume 6.

The articles take the form of a list of settlers at a particular time, followed by information on their wives and children (usually dates of marriage and births only).
