In the 1640’s, Adriaen Van der Donck received a grant of land from the Dutch East India Company which he called Colon Donck, and built one of the first saw mills in the New World at the junction of the Hudson and Nepperhan Rivers. Van der Donck was referred to as Jonk Herr (“young Gentleman” or “young Nobleman”), and these words evolved through several changes to “The Younckers”, to “The Yonkers”, and finally to the present “Yonkers”. Yonkers was a small farm town in the 1700s, but many businesses soon began to emerge: the saw mills and grist mills multiplied, land development increased, and blacksmith shops, taverns, and general stores came into being.
