The first European to explore the coast of Delaware (as well as neighboring New Jersey and New York) was in 1609 the Englishman Henry Hudson, who was on assignment from the Dutch East India Company. It was the Dutch who founded the first European settlement on the territory of Delaware, having built a trading post in 1631 (though it lasted no more than a year).
