In other parts of the county......143   80  277

notes

This list, in other words - the census of 1697, is the basic community based resource utilized by the Colonial Albany Project. This comprehensive survey document gave us a baseline population for establishing a population for early Albany. Simply stated, we identified these mainliners, their spouses, traced them back to entry into the community, and identified their Albany descendants born thru 1800. Simple, eh!

The symbol "@" Denotes so-called ethnicity as attributed by the census taker. We surmise that the bracketed "F" stands for French; "I" for Irish; "E" for English; "Sp" for Spanish; and "Sc" for Scottish.

Rensselaerswyck: Census returns for the Manor printed in Annals, vol. 9, pp. 85-88. All the transcriptions printed in the Annals appear to be faithful copies of the manuscript in the State Archives. See "Finding the People."
