The first European settlement on the site of Seattle was founded on November 13, 1851 by Arthur Denny's group and was called New York Alki, the latter roughly translated from Chinook jargon as soon, someday. In 1853, Dr. David Maynard proposed to rename the main settlement Seattle, in honor of the leader of the local Suquamish and Duwamish tribes.
