PREFACE. 



New ISTetherland, worthy Reader, ma}- he 
truly called, The Mother of States, for her 
Territory extended originally from the Chesa- 
peake unto Cape Cod. In course of time, liow- 
ever, the Connecticut river became her Xortheru 
Boundary, and so continued to be until IGoO, 
wlien, by the Treaty concluded at Hartford, her 
bounds upon the Main were fixed at the west 
side of Greeuwich bay, being about four miles 
from Stamford, Conn., and upon Long Island, 
at Oysterbay — the portion east of this last 
mentioned locality belonging to the English, 
and the westernmost part of said Island, to the 
Dutch. Thus, in fine, did it come to pass, that 
the present States of Delaware, Xew Jersey and 
New York are the legitimate and, we are glad 
to know, the prosperous offspring of our own 
New Netheeland, which Henry Hudson, then 
in the employ of the Dutch East India Com- 



VI PREFACE. 

pan J, discovered, as our Annals show, in the 
Year of Grace, 1600, long before Plymouth 
Rock was known. 

Colonization followed, and with colonization 
came Civilization, and with civilization, a regu- 
lar form of government. 

Who were the Pioneers in the mighty work 
of wresting this vast tcrritoiy from Barbarism — 
who were they who first established Churches, 
Courts, Schools, and Hospitals ; introduced 
Agriculture, Navigation, and the kindred Arts 
of civilized life, and thus laid the foundation 
of Institutions, which, multiplying in course 
of years, have since constituted the honor, the 
pride and the glory of the Empire State? 

Reader, the object of this little Book, which 
is commended to your patient indulgence, is to 
rescue from oblivion the Names of those brave 
and worthy Men. Their bodies 

"are ilust, 
And their good swords are rust, 
Their souls are with the Saints, we trust."

COUN^CIL. 

This body acted ia a twofold capacity ; as an Executive 
Council and as a Coui't of Justice. The Members could not 
be sued before, and were not amenable to, a Court of inferior 
jurisdiction. On extraordinary occasions, it was usual to 
adjoin someofthe Inhabitants or Public Servants to theBoard, 
and the Captains of the Company's ships, when on shore, hail 
a voice therein. The Schout-fiscal had a seat, but no vote, in 
the Council; when he acted as prosecuting officer he retired 
from the Bench.

against the Indians ; was commissioned fiscal 28 June, 164.5. 
In New Netherland, he was admitted to a seat in the Council 
at the mere pleasure of the Director Stuyvesant, who, he says, 
excluded him twenty-nine months from the court. Van der 
Donek makes the same statement. It would seem, however, 
that he was excluded only twenty months in New Nether- 
land. He held the office until 27 March, 1G52, when he was 
dismissed.

Represent oil Jl^iilinttiins, Breiickelen, Aniersfoort and 
Pavonia, antl the principal classes of the community, viz: 
the Merchants, Burghers and Agriculturists. The duties of 
this Board were: First, to promote the honor of God, 
the welfare of the country and (he preservation of the Re- 
formed Religion, according to the discipline of the Dutch 
Church. Second, to give their opinion on matters submitted 
to them by the Director and Council. Third, three of the 
nine, viz : one Merchant, one Burgher, one Farmer, were 
to attend for a month in rotation on the weeldy Court, as 
long as civil eases were before it, and to act subsequently 
as Referees, or Arbitrators on cases referred to them. If in 
case of sickness or absence any of these three could not 
attend, his place was to be filled by another of the Nine Men 
of the same cl.iss. Six retired from office annually, to be 
replaced by an equal number selected from twelve names 
sent in by the whole Board. They held their sessions in 
David Provoosl's School-room, and were the immediate pre- 
cursors of the Burgomasters and Schepens, and of a Muni- 
cipal form of government in the city of New Amsterdam.

the privilege of nominating and submitting a double number 
to the Director and Council, from which the latter were to 
select the members of the ISoard fur the ensuing year; but 
wlieu the nomination was made, it was rcsoWed on the 2d of

harmony's sake," some of those nominated having rendered 
themselves, by former disputes, unacceptable to the autho- 
rities, to continue the present Burgomasters and Schepens

Board of Schepens by the nomination of two respectable 
persons. The nomination of their successors was not con-

ORPHAN MASTERS. 

A'ew Amsterdam. 

The Deacons of the Church were considered the Guardians 
of Widows and Orphans. On the death of either a man or a 
woman, leaving children, tliey were bound to notify, through 
the Clerlv of tlie cliiiroh, the decease to the Director and 
Council, and afterwards in 1653 to the Burgomasters, who 
were ex officio Orphan Masters, and to apply for the appoint- 
ment of Curators, unless the Orphan Court was specially 
excluded by the will of the deceased. The Burgomasters, 
who were burdened with many other duties, were subse- 
quently relieved of the otfice of Orphan .Masters at their 
own request, and persons specially appointed to discharge 
such duties. But ibe Burgomasters, notwithstanding, occa- 
sionally acted in the absence of the proper (Jrphiiu iSIasters. 
The number of the latter at first was two, but this was in- 
creased in 1G5S, to three, "as the business of the Court was 
largely augmented, in consequence of the great mortality 
that year." Tlie legal powers and jurisdiction of the Court

This ofBce and ile perquisites belonged, ex officio, to the

After the organization of a municipal government for New 
Amsterdam, a question arose as to whether the City Clerk, or 
the Secretary of the I'rovince was Vendue Master within the 
City limits. It was then adjudged by the Supreme Court, that 
the sale of property, boili real and personal, under judgment 
of the Director and Council, belonged to the Secretary of the 
Province, or his Deputy Vendue IMaster. The City Clerk was 
Vendue Master to the Court of Orphans, and in cases where 
judgment had been rendered by tlie Court of Burgomasters 
and Schepens.

PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS. 

The first members of the Medical profession in New Nether- 
laiul were, of course, Ship Surgeons who practised on shore 
wliilst ilieir vessels laj' in port. Some of these settled at the 
Manhnttans aud eked out a subsistence by being sometimes 
eiiiployeJ by the government. The following extract from 
the Dutch Records, illustrates the state of the Profession in 
those days: 

" 10">2, February 2. On the petition of tha Chirurgeons of 
New Amsterdam, that none but they alone be allowed to 
[<havc; the Director and Council understand that Shaving 
doth not appertain exclusively to Chirurgery, but is an ap- 
pendix thereunto ; that nt> man cmn be prevented operating 
on himself, nor to do another this friendly act, provided it be 
through courtesy and not forgain, which is hereby forbidden." 
It was then further 

Ordered, That Ship-Barbers shall not be allowed to dress 
any wounds, nor administer any potions on shore, without 
tlie previous knowledge and special consent of the Petitioners, 
or at least of Doctor La Montague. 

This is the earliest order on record regulating the Practice 
of Medicine in the State. In 1658, Messrs. Kierstede, Var- 
revanger aud L'Oragne were the only Surgeons in New 
Amsterdam.

SCHOOLMASTERS. 

"School-keeping auJ the appointment of Schoolmasters 
depend absolutely,'' say tlie Dutch Records, "from the Jus 
Piilronaltis, and require a License from the Director General 
and Council." In New Netlierland, as in Holland, Church 
and State were intimately allied, and the oiEce of Teaching 
thus became, in some rcsi^ects, semi-ecclesiastical. The 
duties of the Parochial Schoolmaster, as set forth in his com- 
mission, were to promote Religious Worship, to read a portion 
of the Word of God to the people, to endeavor as much as 
possible to bring them up in the ways of the Lord, to con- 
sole them in their Sickness and to conduct himself with all 
diligence and fidelity in his calling, so as to give others a 
good example, as becometh a devout, pious and worthy Con- 
soler of (he Sick, Church Clerk, Precentor and Schoolmaster, 
in which capacities all persons, without distinction, were com- 
manded to acknowledge him. These, however, were the 
duties only of Teachers of Schools belonging to, or under 
Consistories or Churches, or who were appointed to Towns 
or settlements not yet provided with a Minister. Teachers 
of Private Schools, though necessarily licensed, were not 
connected officially with the Church.

GKEAT ANIJ iSMALL BURGHERS. 



t'onfen-ing special privileges on Iiilialiitanfs of commercial 
cities is an offslioot of tlic Koiuan Law, wliereby it was iu- 
trocUiced into Holl.-iiul, ami in time transplnntcd to New 
Netherland. Burgher right procured for ihc citizen Freedom 
of trade. Exemption from toll and from being sued by a 
fellow hurgher, except in his Hurgli. He could not be im- 
prisoned without bail, nor tried for any offense after Ihc 
lapse of a year. He was saved fi-om attaint and confiscation, 
if found guilty on a capital charge : for he could not for any 
crime forfeit more than his life and one hundred guilders. 
Burgher right by descent or inheritance was gained only 
through the male line. Females it is true, might be Burghers, 
but if acquired by purchase, the right was vested in them 
only whilst Spinsters or Widows. They lost it if they married 
those not Burghers, but recovered the privilege on decease of 
such husband. Neither tlieir children nor those of Jewish 
Burghers inlierited tlje parent's privilege. 

In New Netherland, "Great Burghei-.s" only could fill public 
offices and enjoy exemption from contiscaiion and attainder, 
if convicted of a capital oflense. All members of the Council, 
all Burgomasters and Schep?ns. all .Ministers of the Gospel 
and Commissioned Offict-rs of Jlilitia, jiast and present, with 
their descendants in llie m.'ile line, were declared by litis 
Charter, Grk.at Burghers. 0(hers might become such .also 
on payment of Ihc sum of Filly guilders into the City Trea- 
sury. 



174 NEW NETHERLAND REGISTER. 

Small Burghers were entitled only to Freedom of Irnde 
and to the privilege of beiug received into tlieir respective 
Guilds. Natives of the city of New Amsterdam, residents 
therefor a year and sis weeks before the date of the Charter, 
Burghers' sons-iu-law, City store-keepers, salaried Servants 
of the Company, and all paying twenty-five guilders, were 
entitled to have their names inscribed on the roll of Small 
Burghers.
