In June 1726, Magdalena married Albany native Edward Holland. By 1732, the marriage had produced two daughters and possibly other children as well. Her older sister married a son of the Albany Schuyler family.
These Hollands made their home on Court Street in Albany's first ward. A prominent businessman and civic leader, Edward was appointed mayor of Albany in 1732. He served for seven years. However, Magdalena died before the end of his tenure.
Thirty-one-year-old Magdalena Bayeux Holland was buried in the "English church" on March 26, 1737. In 1739, Holland re-married, moved his family to New York, and lived for another two decades. In December 1741, her father left a share of his substantial estate to the children of his departed Magdalena.
