The story of the Waldron family of early Albany begins with the arrival of Manhattan-born Pieter Waldron during the early 1700s. Pieter's English ancestry but Holland-born father came to New Netherland and subsequently established the Waldron family in New York. The Albany branch descends from Pieter and Tryntie's large family.
A number of Waldron daughters became mothers of prominent Albany families across the eighteenth century.
By 1800, the Waldron named had dropped from city rolls.
