      (1) to be Richard Kettle (1633, Charlestown, Mass.), Peter Kettle
      (1635, New England) and Thomas Kettle (1635, Virginia).

      Germany. With a group of Dutch settlers he sailed from Amsterdam to
      New York and up the Hudson River, where they joined the Dutch colonists
      at Fort Orange (now called Albany, the capital of the state of New
      York).

      There Joachim Ketel married a girl of Holland Dutch blood and for
      several generations his descendants did likewise.

      The Pomeranian princes (lines Demmin and Stettin) received the acknowledgement to 1181 as nobility of the German empire. Obtained 1317 Slavia the formerly pommerellian areas of the River Leba up to the "Gollenberg" during the city of Köslin; from here the name "Pomerania" was transferred also to the western areas. The realm immediacy was lost at the Grimnitzer contract in the meantime through Brandenburgish or Polish sovereignty, however 1529 through renouncement of the leaning sovereignty through Brandenburg, as well as 1530 through acknowledgement of the emperor Karl V. was re-created.
