"Persons interested will find little difficulty in tracing back their pedigrees to the First Settlers, by keeping in mind the following facts. The names of all sons who subsequently became heads of families (so far as the compiler could find), are printed in italics: the husbands of daughters and the parents of both husbands and wives are in all cases mentioned when discoverable."

Myndertse

Two brothers, Myndert and Carsten Frederickse, smiths, were among the early settlers of Beverwyck. They came from Iveren. Among other real estate in the village, they owned the north corner of State Street and Broadway, and had their smith shop without the south gate, on the north corner of Broadway and Spanish (now Hudson) Street. They were members of the Lutheran church of which Myndert was elder and Carsten deacon in 1680. The latter died probably about 1690, leaving four children. Myndert Frederickse was armorer to the fort in 1697; made his will March 21, 1703/4, proved May 1, 1706, in which he spoke of "my house hard by the church in Cow Street" (now Broadway), and of "my (Lutheran) church book with silver clasp and chain." He m. first, Cathalyn Burchhard (Burger) in New Amsterdam, Aug. 5, 1656; and secondly, Pietertje Teunise Van Vechten in 1663. At the date of his will he had five Ch. living: Frederick, b. in 1657; Burger, b. in 1660; Neeltie, m. Hendrick Douw; Reinier and Johannes. [See Albany Families.] The unsettled condition of the early Dutch family names is well shown, by the descendants of Myndert Frederickse who follow: Some took the surname of Myndertse, his christian name, whilst others took that of Van Iveren, the place from whence he came in Holland.

JOHANNES, son of Myndert Frederickse of Albany, came to Schenectady about 1700; by trade he was a blacksmith and armorer to the fort, and like most other inhabitants of the village, an Indian trader. In 1723 he was arrested by the sheriff of Albany County, and brought before the common council for having, contrary to the ordinances of the city of Albany received into, and harbored in his house, Indians with beaver and other peltry. Whereupon he was fined 10 pounds, and in default of payment the sheriff was ordered to keep said Myndertse safely in the common jail, from whence, however, he shortly after escaped. To punish the sheriff for his negligence or connivance, the common council resolved that he should pay Myndertse's fine and costs. To obtain a fair and impartial verdict in his case, Myndertse appealed to the supreme court of the province sitting in New York, and gained his case; the common council was mulcted in damages, fees and costs in the sum of 41 pounds, 9, 3. It is believed thisdecision effectually established the rights of citizens of Schenectady to the same privileges of trade as the citizens of Albany. Johannes Myndertse made his will May 4, 1754:, proved Sept. 7, 1757, in which he spoke of his three sons Myndert, Jacobus and Reynier, and distributed his estate between them. He then owned property on the west corner of Mill Lane and State Street, also on the north side of State Street at No. 93, and east of it, where he had a blacksmith shop and a bolting house. He m.
