New Sweden Settlers, 1638-1664


Dr. Peter Stebbins Craig has after years of investigations compiled a list of early colonists in New Sweden. The list replaces the one published by Amandus Johnson in his classic book Swedish Settlements on the Delaware River from 1911. Below is a list of settlers mentioned in the article. People are indexed on both given names and possible surnames or additional names. Most of the Finns came from Sweden and are impossible to identify in Swedish or Finnish records. The Number identify the voyage the individual went to New Sweden on, and a specific number for each individual.

The list by Dr. Stebbins Craig is based on a number of records mainly in the National Archives of Sweden.

The article is published in Swedish American Genealogist 16(1996), p. 63-86 & 219-248; 17(1997), p. 1-22 & 113-132; 18(1998), p. 1-23 & 129-150; 19(1999), p. 1-14 & 299-316.
