Early Odessa History

Odessa's early history began in the 1660s when the Dutch settled the Appoquinimink area and adopted the Indian name for the area, "Apequinemy." Its location along the river gave hopes of establishing a trading route with colonies to the west. The English began to colonize the region and peacefully gained control in 1664. The British granted the previously held Dutch area to Captain Edmund Cantwell, the first sheriff of New Castle County under the government of William Penn.
