In 1664, without resistance, Dutch Gov. Peter Stuyvesant surrendered New Amsterdam to a British naval force under Col. Richard Nicolls, thus effectively ending the Dutch colonial presence in the New World. With the departure of the Dutch, the name of the promising settlement on lower Manhattan was changed to New York.
