Excerpt from The Minutes of the Orphanmasters of New Amsterdam, 1655 to 1663

It was argued in an elevated railway case, some years ago, that only English law prevailed on Manhattans Island, even though the Dutch West India Company ruled the Province of which the Island was a part, but nevertheless we have to look for the origin of the Orphans' Court, of which the minutes are herewith presented, in the Twelve Tables of the Roman law, of which the fifth related to inheritances and guardianships. The Byzantine Emperor Justinian (527 to 565 A. D.), wishing to promulgate a body of law, not too bulky for general use, appointed a commission of jurists, who compiled the works on which all laws of Continental Europe are based to-day; two previous compilations - the Roman law of the Burgundians and the Roman law of the Visigoths - having been used to amplify or diminish the provisions of Justinian's Code.
