Go to for a learning experience about the New Netherland Colony during the Dutch colonial period. For a mustread, "Island at the Center of the World," by Russell Shorto, is a great explanation of the Dutch influence in our state and nation. Nancy Johnsen Curran Trustee, New Netherland Institute > New Netherland was taken over by an English duke, the Duke of York. He then named it after himself and it became New York.

Peter Stuyvesant [c. 1612 - August 1672] was the Dutch governor who surrendered to the English in 1664. He did so in his capacity as Director-General of the Colony of New Netherland, at the future New York. His surrender of the Dutch colony to English control was demanded on August 30, 1664. He signed the necessary treaty on September 9.Note that Peter Stuyvesant was the governor (Director General, actually) of New Netherland, not New Amsterdam. New Amsterdam was a colony in the greater New Netherland settlement. There was never a governor (or Director General) of New Amsterdam.
