A few Hispanics live in the thirteen English colonies. Hispanics made up a small percentage of the colonial population.

For example, New York contained a number of Jews descended from people who fled persecution in Spain and Portugal in the fifteenth century.

New York’s first Hispanic Jews had settled there in 1654, when it was still the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam.
