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

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