His village lot was on the north side of State street and extended from Jan Baptist Van Eps' lane [Jay Street] westerly to the American Hotel, 155 feet Amsterdam measure.

He also had a parcel of wood or pasture ground on the north side of Union street, extending from the west line of the Presbyterian church lot to the east line of the Harmanus Peek lot — 23 rods, and extending in the rear 47 rods to Green street, containing one morgen and 481 rods, Rynland measure.

In 1709 he leased of the town 36 acres of the Third flat on the north side of the river.
