Johannes Dyckman [1] (bapt. 26 November 1619, Nieuwe Kerk (Amsterdam)[2] – ca. 1672, New Netherland)[3] was a Dutch commissary of Fort Orange.

Johannes Dyckman, the son of Joris Dijckman and Aeltie Paules/Poulus Root,[4] came to New Netherland prior to 1652 with his second wife Maria Bosyns. Dyckman was commissary of Fort Orange,[5] now Albany, New York, a position afterwards known as vice director. He served in this position from 1651 until June 1655 when he was incapacitated.[6] Johannes and Maria had two children: Cornelis (b. 1647) and Johannes (b. 1662).[7]
