The coast of Castreleon New was explored by the French in 1524, but the French failed to follow up on this search and were superceded by the Dutch in 1609 with the exploration of Henry Hudson.

In five year's time, the Dutch had quickly established Fort Nassau, which is now Nieuw Nassau. In 1624, Fort Orange was founded, also within the boundaries of modern Nieuw Nassau.
