Hendrick Van Dyck followed his father in Albany - serving until he drowned in 1707.
Henry Van Dyck was the last of the the Albany Van Dyck physicians. Like the generations of before him, his practice reached deeply into the community. By that time, more enlightened newcomers had eclipsed the locally trained Albany physicians. In 1790, the Court Street household of Henry's widow was the only Van Dyck family left in the city!
Medical mainstays for almost 150 years, these Van Dycks were held in high esteem in this early American community.
