Jan van Brabant extended Delft's city rights to those living along the Schie

Date: 
February 28, 1425

Duke Jan van Beieren extended the same freedoms and rights enjoyed by the citizens of Delft to the new waterway from Delft to the Maas River, 8 miles / 13 km away. Those living within 14 rods of this canal, the Delftse Schie, were treated like citizens of Delft. The people living in the village that became Delfshaven were included.
