In letters from the year 1388 (Ocko tom Brock) Greetsiel is mentioned for the first time in a document. Hamburg ships were then at anchor in the port of Greetsiel and had to pay duty. The town was founded by the domain Appingen from among the chiefs of Cirksena. While Appingen lost more and more importance, Greetsiel became the chief seat. Today, the place has over 1500 inhabitants.
