Ships Passenger Lists to New Netherland - What Exists?

Thanks goes to Howard Swain for many of the details below

All "passenger lists" for travel from The Netherlands to New Netherland 1654-1664 came from information on the debit side of the West India Company Account Book. They show who owed money when they arrived. This account book is found in New Netherland Colonial Mss, vol. 14, Book KK. The lists of Passengers to New Netherland in the Year Book of the Holland Society of New Netherland 1902:1-37 were taken from this Account Book FN 1, 2

Typical fare was 36 florins; half that for young children; and nothing for nursing infants. FN 1

These accounts were made from the records of the West India Company, by order of the English rulers after the confiscation of the Company's property in New Netherland, and as assets of or debts due the Company, and to be collected by the English. The list seems to stop with the Eendracht which arrived on 19 July 1664. The English took over in Sept 1664 so that may have been the last passenger ship to arrive before that date.

Which Published Versions of Ships Passenger Lists to New Netherland Are Accurate?

First Versions
The first attempt at making a list of passengers from this account book was done by O'Callaghan in 1850 in his Documentary History of New Netherland, vol III. FN 3 (This covered only 1657-1664.) This version was reprinted in 1896 in the Year Book of the Holland Society (HSYB). FN 3

In 1902 the Holland Society published a version by A. J. F. van Laer, correcting "serious errors" FN 3 in the earlier O'Callaghan version and adding a few more ships between 1654 and 1657

Modern Reprints
The earlier, flawed O'Callaghan version has been reprinted in Lists of Inhabitants of Colonial New Netherland It apparently is the source for many of the names in an article A List of Early Immigrants to New Netherland... from Manuscripts of the Late Teunis G. Bergen by Van Brunt Bergen first published in NYGBR vol XIV and XV (1883,4). This article was reprinted by Michael Tepper in Immigrants to the Middle Colonies: A Consolidation of Ship Passenger Lists and Associated Data from The New Netherland Genealogical and Biographical Record.

The corrected 1902 HSYB version has been reprinted in New World Immigrants: A Consolidation of Ship Passenger Lists and Associated Data from Periodical Literature, edited by Michael Tepper, and in Ship Passenger Lists: New Netherland and New Jersey (1600-1825), edited by Carl Boyer, 3rd.

Later Work
In 1963, Rosalie Fellows Bailey published thet article Emigrants to New Netherland containing some new material on some of these immigrants found among the notes of James Riker and compared by her to the original account book. FN 1

Project to Reconstruct Ships Passenger Lists

New Netherland Ships Passenger Lists Project
I've started reconstructing ships' passenger lists from various source (see below for details) and will be providing these lists online as I complete them. In some cases, I've been able to reconstruct names for a ship list that has never been published before! In other cases, I've been able to add names to previously published lists. This is an Olive Tree exclusive.

This is a huge project, one I am working on alone, and I will complete it as time permits. If you would like to help Olive Tree bring such databases to the Internet for all to use FREELY, please read about the two ways you can help. With a little expenditure of time or money on your part, you can help make this project (and others) a reality.

Lorine's Research Notes With Sources: I reconstructed the names of those sailing on various ships from the following sources. Please note that not every source was used to reconstruct every ship. I have indicated which sources were used for each individual:

  1. Abstracts from Notarial Documents in the Amsterdam Archives by Pim Nieuwenhuis published in New Netherland Connections in series Vol. 4:3,4; Vol. 5:1-3 (hereafter NNC)
  2. Early Immigrants to New Netherland 1657-1664 from The Documentary History of New York (hereafter EINN)
  3. Settlers of Rensselaerswyck 1630-1658 in Van Rensselaer Bowier Manuscripts (hereafter VRB)
  4. E. B. O'Callaghan's Calendar of Historical Manuscripts in the Office of the Secretary of State, Albany NY (hereafter CHM)
  5. New World Immigrants: List of Passengers 1654 to 1664 edited by Michael Tepper (hereafter NWI)
  6. Emigrants to New Netherland by Rosalie Fellows Bailey, , NYGBR; vol 94 no 4 pp 193-200 (hereafter ENN)
  7. De Scheepvaart en handel van de Nederlandse Republiek op Nieuw-Nederland 1609-1675 unpublished thesis by Jaap Jacobs [hereafter JJ][Olive Tree Genealogy database]
  8. The records of New Amsterdam from 1653 to 1674 [hereafter RNA] [an online book from Ancestry.com]

Index to 81 Ships Passenger Lists 1624-1664

The Onrust - a fascinating project that built a replica of the 1614 Onrust which was America's first Dutch ship. After it's exploratory voyage the Dutch laid claim to what would become New Netherland. The Onrust never made an ocean voyage but it explored New Netherland and further until 1616.
