Not Saint Sebastian River.

The Dutch claimed this area based on Henry Hudson (English) discovering it under contract to the Dutch.
The English claimed the same area based on John Cabot "Giovanni Caboto" (Italian) discovering it under contract to the English before Hudson.

The town has an English name, the island has a native american name.

Of course people had been fishing there for thousands of years before this dispute.
