Andrada, Salvador D'

One of the earliest Jewish settlers in New York, his name being first encountered in 1655. He appears to have been more wealthy than most of his associates, was actively engaged in commerce, and was one of the leaders in the measures adopted to enforce the civil and political rights of the Jews during the Dutch period. He asserted the rights of the Jews to own real estate, and demanded the recognition of their privileges as Dutch citizens, of their right to equality in taxation, and to trade throughout the Dutch possessions in New Netherlands. His family name occurs in various connections in the seventeenth century among the Maranos settled in Brazil, Mexico, and the West Indies.
