$}onw Hots of tije Village of ISebertogcfc.

In the preface to the Early Record) of the City and County of Albany, published in 1869, the translator made the following remark : "The identification of the village lots horo described is rondorod nearly impossible by the brevity and vagueness of the descriptions, the streets and lanes having been without names. A few lots have been located, others may be, perhaps, by a long and patient examination and comparison." When this was written he had no serious purpose of essaying so difficult a task, but soon after, whilo the subject was still fresh, was led as a matter of curiosity to test the truth of the foregoing remark, and after much puzzling and putting this and that together, there grew out of his studies the following diagrams and accompanying explanations. It will be seen that this attempted map of Beverwyck is confined in time to the earliest years of its settlement, and as to space to the limited territory within the palisades. Indeed this was pretty much all there was of Albany for many years after 1652, in which year Fort Orange ceased to be the centre of the embryo city, which thereafter clustered around the new church built at the junction of State street and Broadway.

Many conveyances of gardens and house lots around and within Fort Orange are registered in the county records, but none of them can now be located. The fort and the ancient streets there, have been completely obliterated.

The remark that the streets of Beverwyck had no names should be qualified: several had names, though seldom used in the early conveyances. The names of Broadway wore Cow, de breede, or Broad, the Lower, Handelaers, and Brewers streets; of Hudson, Spanish street; of Green south of Beaver, Esplanade or Plain street, and north of Beaver, the Voddemart or Rag market, and Cheapside; of Chapel, Berg street; of State, Yonkere street; of South Pearl, de Kleyne straat; and of Maiden Lane, Rom street. After the charter was granted in 1686, the place was divided into three wards: the first embraced all that part of the town south of State and Exchange streets; the second lay north of Stato and west of James streets; and the third contained that portion lying north of State and Exchange, and east of James streets.

In the absence of any map of the lots of those early times, this attempt to construct one is based mainly upon the descriptions found in the Albany County Records, the Patents in the Secretary of State's office, and Mr. Munsell s Annals of Albany. In most cases theso descriptions are brief and obscure; some are not only defective but false and contradictory, and capable of a correct interpretation by subsequent repeated conveyances of the same lots. It is not to bo supposed that this performance gives a complete picture of all the house lots in ancient Beverwyck ; several gaps in Broadway will bo found which no ingenuity of the compiler could fill, and several lots will be found so imperfectly described in the records, that ho has to confess his inability to locate them.

Much remains to be learned in this matter, by the patient student, in the later registers of deeds and mortgages, and it is to be hoped that some one who has leisure may pursue these researches and render more complete this imperfect attempt to illustrate the History of Ancient Albany. J. P.

Union College, 80 May, 1870.
