The Delaware river was discovered by a Dutch man named Henry Hudson in 1609. It was then researched thoroughly by Cornelius Hendrikson, a large influence to the Dutch West India company's incorporation, 6-7 years later in 1615-1616. The first settlement in Delaware was then founded under the guidance of the West India company in 1638. The Delaware colony was named after Sir Thomas West(Lord De La Warr). He was the Virginia Company's 1ST governor.
