Summary:
The Royal Declaration dated 22 February 1664/5, declares the Dutch aggressors because the Dutch West India Company had done to His Majesty's subjects great "Spoyles, Injuries and affronts," for which no reparation but fresh injuries and depredations can be expected. Because His Majesty has granted commissions for subduing, and taking all Dutch ships, vessels, and goods, Nicolls has thought it his duty to declare all estates both real and personal, debts and credits belonging to the West India Company in any part of the territories of the Duke of York confiscated for the use and service of His Majesty. All persons within Nicoll's jurisdiction are to make known concealments of such property at risk of utmost peril. From the New York Secretary's Office, Lib. Entries I, 125 f. Examined by Goldsbrow Banyar. Entered before the Commission to settle the boundary between New York and New Jersey [July - October 1769].
