Why and how was Delaware formed?

Delaware was once a part of Pennsylvania. At its beginnings it was a Swede named Peter Minuit and a Swedish company that "founded" this area.
It was later taken over by the British. Delaware became an important colony because it had access to the Atlantic Ocean and it had fertile farmlands.
