Dutch West India Company receives its New Netherland (NY) charter= 6/3/1621

        We sailed away from Liverpool
        The weather being fine
        Bound for New York City boys
        It was our chief's design
        We being all Irish emigrants
        The truth to you I'll tell
        Who in distress our homes had left
        And to Ireland bid farewell

        "Captain Colstin," sung by Dick Gaughan on Parallel Lines, 1981

Thing is, if New Netherlands hadn't been chartered & if the natives didn't have a thing for bright beads, where would all those Irish in about 6,000 songs have emigrated to?
