The region where the city is now pinpointed was traditionally part of Colen Donck, a 24,000-acre (97 square kilometres) Dutch land grant. From Marble Hill, which today serves as the boundary between Manhattan and the Bronx, it extended north 12 miles (19 km) and east along the Hudson River to the Bronx River. The territory was given to Colendonck’s patroon, Adriaen van der Donck, in July 1645. Locals called Van der Donck the Jonkheer or Jonker, which is etymologically “young gentleman,” derived from the old Dutch jong (young) and heer (“lord”); in other words, “Esquire.” It is from this phrase that the name “Yonkers” is directly derived. Van Donck built a sawmill close to the Hudson and Nepperhan Creek confluence.
