notes



This document entitled (or under the heading): "To His Excellency John Earl of Loudoun Commander in Chief of all his Majesty Forces in North America" or ". . . a street Enquiry made in November 1756" is in the "Loudoun Americana" collection at the Henry E. Huntington Library in San Marino California. The Earl of Loudoun's tenure in America and in Albany in particular produced a number of documents that provide windows on wartime Albany. These are chronicled in Stanley M. Pargellis, Lord Loudoun in North America (New Haven, 1933).

    This comprehensive listing of Albany householders in 1756 is one of the five most basic and important survey documents used by the Colonial Albany Project to identify and comprehend members of the early Albany community.


The names shown on this transcription retain the spelling of the manuscript document as closely as possible. Names were compiled (filled out) by comparing the listing to the index. In no cases, did we modernize or streamline spelliings. However, the biographical links identify each individual. The British had considerable difficulty comprehending the non English speaking population demographically. Hence, the humorous/outrageous spellings!

Seven columns of numbers following each name specify (from left to right): convenient quarters for officers; quarters for officers on a pinch; convenient quarters for men; quarters for men on a pinch; number of fire places; rooms without fire; rooms the family occupies.


GH denotes the marginal notation "Good House" or "Very Good House!"

115. During the summer of 1756, General Daniel Webb (Colonel of the 48th Regiment - Major General in America) was headquartered in what had just become Philip Livingston's house at the Elm Tree Corner.

124. Most likely Captain/Major/Lt. Col. Thomas Ord of the Royal Regiment of Artillery who was stationed at Albany during the war. Petitioned for and received a land grant of 5,000 acres in New York after the war. Filed a will in England in 1777. No Wiki in 4/13.

Cuyler and Gill were bracketed together as number 144. However, two separate structures were configured on the listings.

149. "Francis Payn" probably is Frans S. Pruyn - an Albany mainstay.

152. Probably not twenty-three-year-old skipper Gysbert G. Marselis.

177. These Hiltons were bracketed together as number 177.

Shown below is a large-size reproduction of page eleven showing information on households numbered 282-310 on the 1756 document.

 page 11 of Loudoun's List - November 1756

298: Probably a mistake and the same person who appears as number 293.
