This Anthony married twice. His first wife (married in December 1707 at the house of the bride's parents) was Albany native Susanna Wendell who died without having a family. In 1712, he married Anna Cuyler, whose nine children were baptized in the Albany Dutch church where he was a member and pewholder.
As the only surviving son of a landed businessman, Anthony Jr. was left to administer the extensive estate of his father which included a farm on Van Schaick Island.
By the 1720s, he had purchased another lot and moved his Albany residence to Pearl Street near the city stockade. He also made use of the farm upriver on an island in the Hudson and built a grand home on the property. Anthony Van Schaick, Jr. died in August 1759
