Title Leupe: _Kaart van een gedeelte der rivier Saramacca met de daaraan gelegen en verleende concessien 1

79._

This map shows 79 parcels along the Saramacca River. The opening up of plantations along this river had already commenced in 1790, at the instigation of newly appointed Governor Juriaan Fran├žois de Friderici. It soon became a popular location and, as can be seen from the names of owners on this map, within ten years a large share of the parcels were already cultivated. Additionally, Fort Braak is depicted.
