New Netherland New York Census Records

New York residents are included in census records from 1790 through 1920 Colonial censuses were taken approximately every ten years beginning in 1690. There are few early census records for New Netherland. There are, however, other primary records we can use as substitutes. These include such records as Oaths of Allegiance, Lists of debtors, Tax lists, etc.

When searching New York Census records, remember that until 1664 New York was called New Netherland. In that year the English captured the province from the Dutch and New Amsterdam became New York City. In 1673 New York was recaptured by Dutch naval force and New Netherland restored as a Dutch colony. New York City became New Orange, Kingston became Swanenburgh, Albany was called Willemstad and Fort Albany became Fort Nassau. In 1674 New Netherland was restored to the English and became the province of New York

State censuses were taken at ten-year intervals from 1825 through 1875 and again in 1892, 1905, 1915, and 1925.
