Conamabsqunooncant was the American Indian name for what is now called the Duck River near Old Lyme, Connecticut. The Duck River flows into the Connecticut River in the tidal zone just north of the Long Island Sound.
Conamabsqunooncant is discussed on page 73 of George R. Stewart's fascinating book, Names on the Land: a Historical Account of Place-names in the United States (New York: Random House, 1945). A special Armed Forces paperback edition was also produced in 1945. This is the only "Duck River" in New England. There is another Duck River in Tennessee.
