Dukes County, Province of New York
Dukes County, New York was a county of the Province of New York from 1683 to 1691. It was formed on November 1, 1683, at the same time as Kings County, Queens County, and Duchess County. It consisted of the Elizabeth Islands, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket Island, all beyond the eastern end of Long Island. In 1691, the entire county was transferred to the newly formed Province of Massachusetts Bay, where it was divided and formed into Massachusetts' Dukes County and Nantucket County.
