Added note:  While doing some research on immigration from Rotterdam, I ran across this historical description.

"Harbour registers from Philidelphia show that of the 319 ships that brought immigrants to Pennsylvania between 1727 and 1775, 253 came from Rotterdam (the rest came from Amsterdam and London).  Conditions in Rotterdam were not pleasant - the refugees were often penniless (most had used their money to purchase tickets, pay for passage to Rotterdam, buying food while waiting for ship, etc.), and were crowded into warehouses and insanitary lodgings for weeks on end while they waited for passage.  At times the city authorities forbade them entry until a ship was ready to leave, and a campsite of tents and old boats grew up around a ruined chapel outside town.  On board, life was even worse.  People were packed below decks in a heaving, stinking world of sea-sickness, foul air and disease.  Storms and sickness often proved fatal.  In 1741, the Europa, arriving from Rotterdam, sank with Pennsylvania already in sight.  But one of the survivors was a certain Hans Eisenhauer, whose descendant was one day to become a US president."
