This page represents our first attempt to comprehend who was in the community at the initial distribution/patenting of houselots following the creation of the court/town/village of Beverwyck - the direct ancestor of Albany, during the early 1650s. This page intends to be a first list - a comprehensive survey of important people at the formation of what became an important early American city. Documentable Beverwyck residents only!
This "register" is by no means comprehensive as it is being generated as the initial lot holders are encountered during the development of biographical profiles of the people of colonial Albany. We expect this listing to be in progress for the forseeable future.
