Scope and Content Note:

This is a collection of photostats (white on black). All items are in Dutch unless otherwise noted.

Annotated translations of most of the documents were published in volumes 6, 10, 13, and 14 of the Dutch Settlers Society of Albany Yearbook.

A.J.F. van Laer, writing in the Dutch Settlers Society of Albany Yearbook (DSSY) (6:13, 10:1, and 13:1), says these documents were found in a collection of Livingston papers in the possession of Johnston L. Redmond of New York City. The documents were executed at Albany before Dirck van Schelluyne and notaries Adriaen Jansen van Ilpendam and Jan Juriaensen Becker. About half the documents consist of wills, marriage contracts, leases, bonds, powers of attorney, contracts of sale and indentures of apprenticeship, dated 1646-1695. The papers executed before Becker are listed in the inventory of Becker’s papers, taken after his death, which is printed in Early Records of Albany, 3:589-92, and their presence among the Livingston papers is explained by a note appended to the inventory stating they were turned over on July 11, 1704, to Robert Livingston, Jr. The records “supplement the records of these officials which are preserved in the Albany county clerk’s office” and which, in 1918, were published as volume 3 of the Early Records of the City and County of Albany and Colony of Rensselaerswyck (University of the State of New York).

According to van Laer, the “documents contain a number of biographical data about early settlers of Albany which are not found in any other source material. Of especial interest are the powers of attorney to collect legacies in Holland or elsewhere, which throw new light on the residence and family connections of the settlers before they came to New Netherland.” (DSSY, 10:1)

Of particular interest is a letter from Governor Richard Nicolls to the magistrates of Albany, dated Fort James, August 17, 1767, which comes from the same source as the other documents. In this letter the governor expresses his concern at the receipt of the news of the death of Arent van Curler and comments on the fact that Bastiaen de Winter, who accompanied Van Curler on his journey to Canada across Lake Champlain, was unable to prevent him from drowning. (Documents relating to Van Curler’s death were published in volume 3 of the Yearbook.) Aside from its connection with the accident, Van Curler notes the letter is of interest in that it shows the friendly disposition of the first English governor toward the Dutch magistrates of Albany, to whom, at their request, he promised to write in Dutch, although he felt assured that every one of them could read English.

According to “Documentary Sources Relating to New Netherland” written by Charles T. Gehring and published in Colonial Dutch Studies: An Interdisciplinary Approach (New York: New York University Press, 1988):

The court records [for Beverwyck and Rensselaerswyck] have been translated by A.J.F. van Laer and published in two series: Minutes of the Court of Fort Orange and Beverwyck, 2 volumes (Albany, 1920-1923) and Minutes of the Court of Albany, Rensselaerswyck and Schenectady, 3 volumes (Albany, 1926-1931). The other related papers, deeds, conveyances, and so on have been translated by Jonathan Pearson, in Early Records of the City and County of Albany, 1654-1679 (Albany, 1869); the remaining three volumes of Pearson’s translations were revised and edited by A.J.F. van Laer. They were eventually published under the above series title in Albany, in 1916 through 1919. Over the years certain records relating to Albany have been separated from the main body. They contain wills, notarial papers, and other documents from 1666 to 1693. [These records are in the Livingston-Redmond Collection at the Roosevelt Library in Hyde Park, New York.] Translations of these records by A.J.F. van Laer can be found in the following volumes of the Dutch Settlers Society Yearbook, vol. 6 (1930-1931), pp. 13-28; vol. 10 (1934-1935), pp. 1-14; vol. 13 (1937-1938), pp. 1-18; and vol. 14 (1938-1939), pp. 1-18. 42 and 50.
