Description: The volume contains records relating to the history of Dutch settlers in the territories that the English acquired. It may contain references to Lenape people in the Delaware River area, though specific references have not yet been identified.

The documents contain records from as early as 1638 and continue through Edmund Andros' term as governor of New England and ends in 1700. The documents include many official government proclamations and legal documents relating to Dutch property and their rights within English colonies.
