"By the 1656 survey, which was the earliest plan of the city, the streets, as the ordinance recites, had been" set off and laid out with stakes." There were at that time, according to O'Callaghan, but 120 houses within the city (Hist. of N. Neth., II: 540), whereas, on the Castello Plan, of four years later, about 300 are shown; and on the De Sille List of the same year there are 307 within the same area." ~ Stokes

spinner.gif The purpose of this project is to cross-reference the property owners and other residents recorded in the Castello Plan of 1660 with those noted in the Remonstrance Project. The hope is that some users may gain insights or inferences as a result.


If ever there was an example of residents of a town being related to their neighbors, New Amsterdam of 1665 is a prime example. To get an impression of this see: Interactive Connections circa 1665, New Amsterdam

Signers of the 1664 Remonstrance

Alpha-by given name-per signatures on the Remonstrance Document ~• Many spellings are confusing!

Key to abbreviations:

(B) = Burgomaster
(S) = Schepen
(Sh) = Sheriff
IMI = The Iconography of Manhattan Island, 1498-1909 by Isaac Newton Phelps Stokes. Volume 2 provides biographical information about owners in 1660, volume 4 includes biographical information about certain signatories of the 1664 Remonstrance within the so-called chronology, and volume 6 contains the index. Keys to the Castello Plan (by Stokes and the New Castle, Delaware, Community History and Archaeology Program) show the location of different blocks (A to R) on the map. The key has already been associated with multiple Geni profiles here.

NOTE: Not all signers of the 1664 Remonstrance owned property within the Castello Plan or right outside the wall in 1660. There may, however, be evidence of where they resided in other sources than The Iconography, for instance in volumes 1 to 5 of The Records of New Amsterdam. Such sources may also be included.
