CD: The Belgians: First Settlers in New York and in the Middle States with a Review of the Events which led to their Immigration


Although New Netherland was a Dutch Colony, the author shows that the first settlers (as well as many subsequent ones) were Belgians brought over by the Dutch. They were French speaking Walloons, Protestant refugees from southern Belgium, and they were settled at various locations in what is now New York, and also in New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. This volume gives a detailed history of these people in Europe and of their participation in the development of America.
