"Concerning the Men's seats hereafter mentioned, whenever any one of them is vacated by death, it shall descend to the eldest son of the last occupant living in the county; and in default of sons, to a son-in-law; and in default of sons-in-law, to an own brother: always descending successively to own sons; and if there be no sons or they shall be absent, then to sons-in-law; and in default of sons-in-law, then to own brother; the first occupant paying thirty shillings for his seat, and his successor fifteen shillings for transferring the same, in behalf of the Reformed Dutch Church of Albany. Every seat-holder shall be holden and in honor bound to contribute to the minister's salary in proportion to his circumstances. No person living out of the county shall be entitled to a seat; and in default of a successor, or of any of the requirements herein expressed, seats shall revert to the church."

September 3, 1753
"Resolved; That all the men's seats in the new or last constructed gallery shall be sold; the first tier for 12 shillings a seat; the next tier for 10 shillings, and the other for 8 shillings. There shall also be paid for each seat yearly in every year 6 shillings; and in default thereof, the seat shall be forfeited to the consistory, to be again disposed of. In case of death or removal, the seat of such person shall be transferred to his next of kin, upon the payment of 6 shillings for transferring the same; and in default of the payment of the transfer money within a year, the vacated seat shall again revert to the consistory, and be at their disposal."


"Then follows the list of pews and the names of the occupants, with the number of the seat which each occupied, and the date when a successor took it."

The "ID#", "transfered to" and "from #" was assigned by the transcriber in order to re-arrange the names in alphabetical order, and keep the pew transfer information available for this table.
