     Silversmith. Adriaan Bancker was born on 25 July 1724 at New York City, New York.1,2 He was the son of Christopher Bancker and Elisabeth Hooglant.1

Adriaan Bancker was baptized on 29 July 1724 at Dutch Reformed Church, New York City, New York, sponsors Adrian Bancker (the silversmith and uncle of the child) and Belitje Renaudett.2,3

Adriaan Bancker married Anna Boelen, daughter of Abraham Boelen and Elizabeth de Peyster, on 7 November 1753, his second cousin.2

Adriaan Bancker named in the probate of his father Christopher's will probated on 26 May 1763; having been written 22 February 1752 in which he mentions his son Evert as the eldest and four others: Adrian, Richard, Christopher, and William. Christopher however died about a year before his father.4

Christopher's father-in-law, Lieut Adrian Hooglandt, was one of the patentees of Kayaderosseras Patent in what is now Saratoga County. This was an immense tract of about seven hundred thousand acres, the original title to which was obtained by misrepresentation. Nearly sixty years after, the heirs of the original proprietors were constrained to relinquish a part of their claim to the Mohawk Indians and to pay an indemnity in order to secure a clear title to the remainder. The two patentee rights of Adrian and Joris Hooglandt were divided between the three families of Bancker, Renaudet, and Rutgers. After Christopher's death the Bancker portion was again divided, Nov. 22, 1771, to the four brothers: Evert, Adrian, Richard, and William, sons of Christopher.1

Adriaan Bancker died on 29 September 1792.5
