Hockey on the Hudson River in 1658

Recommended Posts

This was written in the 1859.
 

"In 1658 Schout or Sheriff Nicasius D'Sille complains to the court of Burgomasters of the dogs making dangerous attacks upon him in his night rounds, and moreover that there was much "hallooing of the Indians in the streets and cuttings of ' hockies' by the boys, all which, being against good order, should be remedied." Mr. Valentine considers the Dutch term "hockies" untranslatable "although tradition has handed down a similar term among truant boys in some of the villages on the Hudson River." We presume it is our old school boy phrase "playing hookey," which survives to this day in Manhattan."
