Two interesting references regarding the occupations of the residents of New York are:
- O'Callaghan, Edmund Bailey. Calendar of New York Colonial Commissions, 1680–1770. New York, New York: New-York Historical Society, 1929. (Family History Library book 974.7 N2n.) Indexed. Lists office holders, their residences, and dates of commission.

Some Dutch New York settlers ventured into Detroit to trade with the Mohawk Indians:
