New Netherland Settlers
8.5" x 11" (21.59 x 27.94 cm)
Full Color on White paper
Sometime between October 1647 and July 1652, Lodewyck Cornelils Post, his wife Agnietje Bonen, and their children left Amsterdam Holland to settle in New Netherland (New York). Research into Naarden Holland church records has revealed the birth of Lodewyck, and the marriage of his parents in that city. When Lodewyck and his family arrived, the population of New Amsterdam was just over 600 people and it was growing rapidly. New Amsterdam had gabled homes, the Dutch language was being spoken, and Dutch laws in place would have offered comfort to newly arrived Lodewyck and Agnietje. Court records in New Amsterdam (New York City) reveal 20 years of Lodewyck involvement in various cases. Often he was being taken to court for money owed to others in the community. Lodewyck was also involved in attempts to protect his daughter Belitje from her abusive husband.
