Spelled variously, the New Netherland pioneer Slingerland family inhabited Albany and its hinterland since the mid-seventeenth century.

Their Albany history begins with the settlement of Teunis Cornelisse in Beverwyck before 1660.

In 1697, the city census enumerated the households of Albany-born brothers Albert and Cornelis Slingerland. Another brother was counted in the Manor.

In 1790, the first United States census for the city of Albany configured only one Slingerland-named household but eleven more in surrounding Watervliet.

In 1813, the first city directory counted three Slingerland-named addresses on Market Street.

Slingerland Street off of Morton Avenue today recalls the name of this pioneer early Albany family.
