Excerpt from The De Forests and the Walloon Founding of New Amsterdam With the steady growth in the past twenty years Of general interest in matters of history and biogra phy, further research among early records Of state in Holland, England, and the American Colonies has brought within reach Of the general public a number Of documents relating to the very earliest settlements in the New Netherland. By these later investiga tions it now appears clearly established that, while the Dutch were first in the field as explorers and traders, the belgian-french were their predecessors as actual settlers with homes, families, cattle and tilled fields. The first to bring their wives and chil dren, the first to plow and plant, the first to build permanent residences upon the island Of Manhattan and the site Of New York City, were a company of Walloons recruited and enrolled by Jesse De Forest Of Avesnes - not included as a negligible minority in a colony planned by the Dutch Government, but gathered together Of their own motion and wish as a racial and religious unit, seeking from the united Netherlands only permission to make a settlement, and means Of transportation. It is Of this Walloon colony, of its leader, Jesse De Forest, and Of the part it played in the first days of New Amsterdam, that the present paper in a modest way seeks to treat.
