Manhattan was settled in 1624. Governor’s Island served as a Dutch fur-trading settlement called New Netherland. The English conquered New Netherland in 1664 and renamed it New York after the Duke of York and Albany. The Dutch reclaimed the settlement in 1673 and renamed the city New Orange. In 1674, the English again gained control through the Treaty of Westminster.
