IMPORTANT NOTICE: The brothers of this profile are not necessarily family. This 'artifical affiliation' was created to support the research into the particularly challenging genealogy of African immigration into New Netherland between 1609-1674.

For an explanation about the purpose of this artificial affiliation, please check the New Amsterdam - Origins: African Immigrants project.

Please also check the New Amsterdam master project for the dimension on the settlement and development of New Amsterdam and the Dutch province of New Netherland.

• convicted by lot for killing Jan Primero; reprieve came after the rope for two nooses broke
