Pieter was of French extraction with the Anglicized name of Mabie having been derived from the French name Mabille. The Netherlands once included all of Belgium, which is half French speaking peoples and half Dutch people. In the Netherlands at that time, Dutch was the official language, even for those of French extraction. The French spelling of the Dutch Casparszen (which means Casper's son) is Gaspar. The Mabie surname also appears in Scotland with the Norman invasion, also originally from France.

Pieter Casparszen van Naerden is in the 1660 census of New Amsterdam. In 1657 he was listed as a "Small Burgher", a status which conveyed specific status and rights. The first use of the Mabie surname by his children began in New York in 1687.

In 1653, he was named as one "of the most influential citizens and inhabitants of this city" of New Amsterdam in the council minutes. In 1653, he served as a corporal in the Burgher Corps of New Amsterdam. In 1652, he was sued by a Jacob Stoffelsen, but the details of the suit did not survive.

In 1656, he was a witness to a secret land transaction in which the West India Company purchased land from the Native Americans on the west bank of the "South River" (now the Delaware). This land had already been settled by the Swedes, and this transaction was used to justify an attack on their settlements.

From the baptismal records of the New Amsterdam Reformed Dutch Church, we know that Pieter was in New Amsterdam by February 1647, and that he was still alive in December 1662. A census of New Amsterdam conducted in June 1665 lists Aechtje Jans, (his wife) was the widow of Pieter Casparszen van Naerden, so we know he was deceased by that time.

The first time that Pieter Casparszen van Naerden name appears in New Amsterdam records is in 1647. On February 17th of that year, he was a witness at the baptism of Hendrick, a son of Abraham Ryck.
