Ships to New Netherland/New York

Prinses Amelia
sailed after July 1646

Prinses 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.

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:

  2. Early Immigrants to New Netherland 1657-1664 from The Documentary History of New York (hereafter EINN)
