  • Event: Fact 4 (2) 1790 resided Coeymans Patent New York
  • Note:

    The Kuijans/koeymans/coeymans family in america began with a young
    miller from holland whom came to america from holland to work for first dutch
    patroon. He brought with him two adult brothers and one under the age of 14
    we think,his brothers are rarely ever mentioned in history again. However
    the eldest brother ,the miller ,attained enough money to buy the coeymans
    patent
    in southern albany and northern greene county ny.of course greene couinty
    didn't exist till 1800 to 1810.
    the price of the patent was to build a mill on a creek in the area,i'm not
    sure whether the creek was hannacroix or coeymans but guess it was coeymans
    creek both enter the hudson river in close proximity and i walked to both in
    my youth to swim.

    The coeymans patent was a gigantic piece of land, it eventually went to the
    last coeymans who split it five ways to his daughters,he had no sons, there
    may be coeymans descendents in new jersey but i have not checked that out.
    greenville is a small town in the back of greene county settled by the
    brandau's,german, the landtmans,dutch and a lot of people from connecticut.
    greeneville is still a very small town.
    a number of founding families of greene county were pro british
    tories in long island during the revolution and moved to greene county to
    elude their british connections. actually many were quakers and just didn't
    like war
    there only about several hundred people in what is greene county today in
    1790. what made them go to chenango county, i don't know except when a parent
    moved 7 or 8 children went with him,i guess it has to do with european
    philosophy that the oldest son inhierts every thing and the rest of the
    family does his bidding,i.e. he gives land to the sons younger than him and
    to brother in laws ,not sisters. i can name you several families who went
    that way and can cite horrible winters but exceedingly
    good sumers and crops which were needed then. those were the days when men
    had no weapons and wolves ate thier children as they tried to deliver goods
    to the cities,but we are supposed to forget that.
    i have th book entitled History of greene county 1884 by beers
    every town including greenville received money to write bicentennial historys
    in 1976. a quick check of the 1810 greene county census shows to joseph motts
    one in coxsackie and one in greenvillle it shows seven weeks families from
    catskill,coxsackie and durham,an earlier coxsackie tax list which should
    havecincluded greenville listed a samuel mott.
    the coeymans patent was written such that it overlapped the
    vanrensselaer(the original patroon) and was rewritten later to stop the
    overlap with van rensselaer. but in simple terms it ran from coeymans creek
    as nortyhern boundary due west with limit except on the east the hudson
    river. the first coeymans eldest son sold the norther half of the patent and
    moved to new jersey.
    the daughters of his brothers shared the rest of the patent 5 ways bounded on
    the east by the hudson on the south by the bronck and hotaling and loveridge
    (i think) patents and later the western bounary was set at greenville.
    the revolution in 1776 till about 1787 emptied the land west of the hudson
    of most people , except right on the river like kingston/catskill and a few
    miles inland , so in 1790 people flocked west because the indians went to
    canada.
