New Netherland. Dutch colony of New Netherland (yellow), which existed in north-eastern North America from 1614 to 1667, and again from 1673 to 1674. The title is in Latin, referring to New Belgium (another name for New Netherland), New England and Virginia. The region later became the colonies and then states of New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Connecticut. The inset (lower right) shows an early New York City (re-named New York in 1664): 'Nieuw Amsterdam op t eylant Manhattans' (New Amsterdam on the island of Manhatttan). New Amsterdam is at left of Long Island (red, centre). Published in Amsterdam in 1685, this map by Nicolaes Visscher (1649-1702) is thought to date from the early 1650s.
