Caspar Steynmets, 1609-1702
Caspar was Indian Trader, Land Owner, Burgher in New Amsterdam and later New York. Caspar arguably established the lands west of the Hudson River what is now Jersey City, New Jersey. He lived a long life, had 3 or 4 wives, lots of children.
Why no Steynmets park, avenue, school today? His descendants were loyalist that fled to Canada and the Steynmets name disappeared.
