Biographical Note:

The members of the Van Schaick family documented in these papers were descendants of Goosen Gerrits Van Schaick, who emigrated to the Dutch colony of New Netherland from Utrecht in 1637. In 1665 Goosen, a brewer by trade, was granted lands at the mouth of the Mohawk River (including present-day Cohoes Island and Waterford) by the Indians. The Van Schaicks eventually became one of the most prominent Dutch families in Albany.

Anthony Van Schaick (1681-1756), a grandson of Goosen, was a prominent merchant in Albany; His son, Jacob (1718-1785?), was also a merchant, concerned especially with transatlantic trade.

Anthony Van Schaick (1779-1822) was a lawyer in Albany in partnership with Abraham Van Vechten. He was a great-grandson of Anthony Van Schaick (1681-1756), descending from Wessel Van Schaick (1712-1783) and John G. Van Schaick (1748-1828). Henry Van Schaick (1795-1829) and Wessel Van Schaick were also sons of John G. Van Schaick.

Scope and Content Note:

These papers document successive generations of the Van Schaick family from approximately 1715 to 1863, consisting mostly of deeds and other legal documents related to the family's vast land holdings that were situated in the vicinity of Cohoes, Waterford, and the Lansingburgh section of Troy, New York. Also includes wills and other legal papers related to the estates of Jacob Van Schaick and Gerritt W. Van Schaick. Business and mercantile interests of Anthony Van Schaick (1681-1756), and his son Jacob (1718-1785) are also documented in these papers, which include correspondence, receipts, invoices, and bills of sales for slaves.

Papers of later generations include personal correspondence and financial records of Anthony Van Schaick (1779-1822) and deeds and other legal documents related to landholdings of two of his brothers, Henry Van Schaick (1795-1829) and Wessel Van Schaick (1776-1836).

Additional papers of Van Schaick and allied families are available in SC10837, SC11881 and SC17284.
