The seal on this document is the first seal of the City of New York, granted to New Amsterdam in 1654 and used until 1659. The document, signed by Johannes Nevins, the Clerk of the Burgomasters from 1658 to 1665, confirms Oloff Stevenszen Van Courtlandt's (1600-1684) ownership of a plot of land on Stone Street.
