The city of Buffalo, New York was named after the Buffalo Creek. The name "Buffalo" is a French rendering of the Native American word for "buffalo". It has also been reported as deriving from "Beau Fleuve", meaning "(Beautiful) River/Creek", or, more rarely, from a corruption of the French phrase "" ("Big Bull"), used by early settlers to describe buffalo seen swimming in Lake Erie. The first known European settlement at what became Buffalo was on November 21, 1753 when Fort Niagara and two other trading posts were established by British army captain Lieutenant Colonel John Butler and Captain Samuel Chew (for whom Cheektowaga is named). On December 31st 1804 it became part of newly independent United States with rest being added to Ontario in Canada; however this did not last long as war broke out between Britain and America over border disputes along their new shared border which lasted until 1814 when peace treaty ended hostilities.
