SHIPS PASSENGER LISTS
Prinses Amelia sailed after July 1646Prinses Amelia (Princess Amelia) sailed from Netherlands to New Netherland sometime after July 1646 (probably in 1647), arriving New Amsterdam before 27 May 1647. On a return voyage Prinses Amelia sank off coast of Wales on 27 Sept. 1647. Out of 107 passengers, only 21 were rescued.
Lorine's Additional Notes:
Here are some additional names that were on the ship, The Princess Amelia. The ship departed from Texel after July 31, 1646, stopped off in the West Indies and arrived in New Amsterdam on May 11, 1647. The ship sank on the return voyage.
Some names came from my own research and many others came from the research of Simon Groenvald and Jaap Jacobs in the notarial archives in Amsterdam. Groevald published an excellent article in the Halve Moon about the Princess and her 2 voyages in 1647. (Summer 2001)
Peter Stuyvesant appears to have been on this ship during his stay in the West Indies during the winter of 1646. Letters from him were sent from the Princess.
