In the first half of the seventeenth century several hundred Swedish and Finnish settlers arrived in the Delaware River valley in America’s Middle Colonies. Regardless of the circumstances of their move, migration to America had a significant impact on their lives. Using the example of Anders Svensson Bonde and his family, this essay scrutinizes the processes of place-making in the colony and pays attention to the ambiguities in the settlers’ lives: the degree to which old traditions and cultural sensitivities shaped their everyday practice as well as the increased disconnection of the Swedish communities in America from their old homeland.
