Following the explorations of Verrazano in New York Bay, French explorer Samuel de Champlain and English explorer Henry Hudson (employed by the Dutch) investigated this area in 1609. By the 1620s the Dutch had established a permanent settlement which they named New Amsterdam. In 1664 they surrendered control of New Amsterdam (New Netherland) to the English. The territory was renamed New York after James, Duke of York and Albany, who later became King James II.
