In offering to the curious the following contributions for the family history of Albany county, it may be expected that the compiler should briefly indicate the character ol" the people, the extent of territory occupied, the sources and deficiencies of information, and the peculiar difficulties of the work.
The site of the present city of Albany wan first occupied as a trading post in 1614. After the charter of the Privileged West India Company, in 1621, Fort Orange was built, around which clustered the little hamlet occupied by the servants and factors of the Company, who claimed and exercised the entire Indian trade. Hence colonization was not encouraged, contrary to the provisions of the charter, by which they were bound to "advance the peopling of those fruitful and unsettled parts:" the greed of gain swallowed up all other Interests. At length the evil became so apparent and so forcibly presented to the notice of the Directors in Amsterdam, that they were obliged to seek a remedy. On the 7th day of Juno, 16'2i*x under the title of "Freedoms and Exemptions" concer-sion wan made to Patroons to plant colonies in New Netherland.
From the haste with which the Directors in Holland proceeded to avuil themselves of the privileges thua granted, one might almost suspect this charter was granted for their special profit and gratification. The failure of the West India Company and the Patroons in fulfilling the requisitions of their charter* relating to the colonization of the new province and the encouragement of agriculture, became so apparent in 1038 as to call for the Interference of the States-General, and after the agitation and rejection of many projects the Directors were induced to proclaim free trade and free lands to private persons under what they conceived necessary restrictions. This measure hud a happy effect in stimulating immigration to New Netherlaud from the mother country.
The population of New Netherland, at the beginning of Stuvvesant'e administration (1647), is variously estimated at from 1,00(1 to 3.000; at its close in 1664 it was about 10,000. The Dutch bad held the province fifty years, and this was the result of their attempts to colonize it. Its natural advantages both for trade and agriculture were unequaled by any like portion of the continent. The nation which nnd redeemed its own country from the ocean, which had conquered its freedom from the Spanish yoke, and led all European nations in foreign trade was Jn*t the people to found a new empire on these shores. The Dutch character was not wanting in the requisite energy, perseverance and pluck ; but it was the system of government, persevered in against protests and petitions, that was chiefly at lault.
The population of Fort Orange at this early period can not be exactly known; that it was small may be Justly interred from several facts: First. The church built in 1613 was 34 ft. by 19 ft. and contained but nine oanken (benches) for the worshipers: yet this house served the little community until 1656. Second. A Jesuit missionary who visited the village in 1646 mentions that it contained then but ten thatched cottages. Third. The number of settlers shown by the Van Rensselaer papers as having been sent over to the tolonis up to 1664 is onlv 210.* It is not to be supposed that all those persons who were attracted to Fort Orange by its happy location for Indian traffic, were either tenants or servants of the Patroou of Itenaselaerswyck, or were even under his manorial jurisdiction. Fort Orange and the little hamlet which clustered around it * walls for safety were always claimed by the West India Company as under their exclusive authority. This claim, however, was strenuously resisted by the I'atroon. Hence originated that memorable and almost bloody contest forpower bet ween those obstinate, hard-headed officials. Gov. Stuyvesant and Commissar}- Slichtenhorst.
The Dongan charter of 16*6, however, quieted further questions of jurisdiction: Albany became a city one mile wide on the river and 13»i miles long. All outside of these limits belonged to the CoionU.
The early population of Fort Orange and Beverwyck, though almost pure Dutch at first, was changeable: after a few years spent In traffic with the Indians some returned to J'atria: some retired to New Amsterdam (New York), whilst others parsed beyond the limits of the Colonic and purchased lauds at Kinderhook, Claverac, Catsklll. Coxsackie, Niskavuna, Half Moon, and Schenectady.
The conquest of the province by the English in 1661 introduced a new clement into the population; the sheriff of the county, clerk of the village and city, and officers and soldiers of the garrison were mainly English or New Englanders: a few of these intermarried with Dutch maidens and became permanent citizens. Later, another nationality was introduced: through the bounty of Queen Anne some thousands of Palatines were sent over in 170H-'i"2; they settled at East and West Camps on the Hudson, and afterwards in the Schoharie valley, and at German Flats on the Mohawk.
Until 1*5*>1 the powers of the magistrate of Fort Orange extended south to the Esonus (Kingston). By the division of the province into counties in 1683, Albany county comprised all the territory north of Dutcheaa and Ulster on both sides of the river, and the village of Albauy was regarded as the fountain of authority both in church aud judicial matters by the scattered inhabitants of this great region.
The Albany church founded about 1610 was the only one north ofEsopus naving a permanent ministry until long after*1700, save that of Schenectady : and as all young children in early times were christened in the church and their names entered in the Doop Both, these ancient baptismal records have a peculiar value and interest to the genealogist. Unfortunately the records, previous to 1684, are wanting; from that date onward they are complete.
The following pages contain the names of all children baptized and recorded in this church from 1684 to 1 POO posted and arranged in families. Large additions have also been made from other sources, among which are the wills, deeds, mortgages, marriage and other contracts, powers of attornev, proceedings of magistrates, Ac, found in the offices of the county and city clerks: the early records and pa'pers in the secretary of date's office, the most ot which have been fully calendared by Dr. O'Oallaghan : and Mr. Munsell'e Annals and Historical Collect inns of Albany. These sources of information are by no means exhausted: the patient antiquarian has still ample room for gleaning in the same fields, and new ground for research in family papers, records in family bibles, and more especially in those of the Colonic belonging to the Van Rensselaer family!
