Laws and Writs of Appeal (1647-1663) Laws and Writs of Appeal (1647-1663)

by Gehring, Charles T.

The laws reveal the legal thinking of the Dutch on such subjects as Indians, smuggling, trade and crime, as well as everyday problems of wages, fencing, land allocation, and the regulation of public places. The writs, representing every New Netherlander’s right to appeal the judgment of their local courts to the colony’s council at Manhattan, provide insights into the workings of the judicial system. New York Historical Manuscripts. Records translated from the Dutch language have added a new dimension to early American history. This book is one of a series by the New Netherland Project.
