Martin Janse and other offspring became Albany-area residents.
By 1790, no Van Alstyne-named households remained in the city. However, five Van Alstyne homes were listed on the Watervliet census.
Throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the descendants of Jan Martense constituted a significant presence - but mainly in the countryside south and east of Albany.
Sources: This access page for the Van Alstyne family is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources. For a number of reasons, comprehending this family is proving difficult and we encourage caution in trying to sort out the Albany Van Alstynes.
