   It is reported that the family came to America in 1624, but that date may not be correct. Philippe was appointed "Court messenger at New Amsterdam" by Gov. Kieft upon the Gov's arrival at Manhattan in 1638. Referred to as Court Messenger "Philip de Truy". Philippe seems to have been killed by Indians, probably along with his son. He had sold a house and lot in town - in Manhattan, near today's South St. Seaport - but I haven't found any reference to another house. Certainly his work as court messenger (sheriff) had him travel to all inhabited parts of New Netherland, so he would have known the whole
   territory of the colony very well.
   Official records show the almost constant strife between the settlers and the Indians, without recording all the names of those murdered, although some are identified. These page includes many notes on the times, as well as specific records for Philippe.
   Some historical notes:
   In 1643, Indians destroyed all bouweries but 3 on Manhattan and 2 on Staten Island, and killed people and cattle. In 1652, 4 persons on Manhattan were murdered by Indians; in 1653, 3 were murdered on Staten Island. "In 1655, Indians set fire to all
   the bouweries on the Manhattans around New Amsterdam, and afterwards on Staten Island, and killed all that didn't escape. In less than 3 days, 40+ colonists were killed and about 100 women and children were taken prisoner. Bouweries and some plantations were burnt." There is a "Remonstrance 31 Oct 1655 of the Dir General & Council of New Netherlands to the States General exposing the bad conduct of the barbarous Indians towards the Dutch" which reports many incidents. For a time, individuals were forbidden from wandering outside the settlements; those killed almost being blamed for their own deaths, as the situation was so hostile. So traveling or doing a bit of scouting for promising new land was very risky in these years.
