Albany County, New York

Albany County is a county in the state of New York, in the United States. Its northern border is formed by the Mohawk River, at its confluence with the Hudson River, on the east; as of the 2010 census, the population was 304,204. The county seat is the state capital of New York; as established by the English government in the colonial era, Albany County had an indefinite amount of land, but has had an area of 530 square miles since March 3, 1888. The county is named of Albany, who became James II of England. Albany County constitutes the central core of the Capital District of New York State, which comprises the Albany-Schenectady-Troy, NY Metropolitan Statistical Area. After England took control of the colony of New Netherland from the Dutch, Albany County was created on November 1, 1683, by New York Governor Thomas Dongan, confirmed on October 1, 1691; the act creating the county vaguely defined its territory "to containe the Towns of Albany, the Collony Rensselaerwyck and all the villages and Christian Plantaçons on the east side of Hudson River from Roelef's Creek, on the west side from Sawyer's Creek to the Sarraghtoga."

The confirmation declared in 1691 was similar but omitted the Town of Albany, substituted "Mannor of Ranselaerswyck" for "Collony Rensselaerwyck", stated "to the uttermost end of Sarraghtoga" instead of just "to Sarraghtoga". Livingston Manor was annexed to Albany County from Dutchess County in 1717. Albany's boundaries were defined more as state statutes would add land to the county, or more subtract land for the formation of new counties. In 1772 with the creation of Tryon and Charlotte counties, Albany gained definitive boundaries and included what are now Albany, Rensselaer and Schenectady counties; the city of Albany was the first municipality within this large county, founded as the village of Beverwyck by the Director-General of New Amsterdam, Pieter Stuyvesant, who established the first court in Albany. Albany was established as a city in 1686 by Governor Dongan through the Dongan Charter after the English took over the colony. Schenectady to the west was given a patent with some municipal rights in 1684 and became a borough in 1765.

The Manor of Rensselaerswyck was created as a district within the county in 1772, divided into two districts, one on each side of the Hudson River in 1779. The west district included all of what is now Albany County other than lands were in the city of Albany at the time. Though the Manor of Rensselaerswyck was the only district in what is today Albany County, it was not the only district in what was Albany County at the time. Pittstown in 1761, Duanesburgh in 1764, were created as townships, but when districts were created in 1772, those townships were incorporated into new districts, Pittstown in Schaghticoke and Duanesburgh into the United Districts of Duanesburgh and Schoharie. Schenectady was made from a borough to a district in 1772. Other districts established in 1772 were Hoosick, Cambridge, Halfmoon, Kings, Great Imboght, the Manor of Livingston. In a census of 1697, there were 1,452 individuals living in Albany County. By the end of the war in 1698, the population had dropped to 1,482, but rebounded and was at 2,273 by 1703.

By 1723, it had increased to 6,501 and in 1731 to 8,573, less than the population of the city of New York in the same year. In 1737, the inhabitants of Albany County would outnumber those of New York County by 17 people. In 1774, Albany County, with 42,706 people, was the largest county in colonial New York. According to the first Federal Census in 1790, Albany County reached 75,921 inhabitants and was still the state's largest county. On March 7, 1788, the state of New York divided the entire state into towns eliminating districts as administrative units by passing New York Laws of 1788, Chapters 63 and 64. Albany County was one of the original twelve counties created by the Province of New York on November 1, 1683. At the time, it included all of New York state north of Dutchess and Ulster counties, all of what is now Bennington County in Vermont, theoretically west to the Pacific Ocean. On May 27, 1717, Albany County was adjusted to gain an indefinite amount of land from Dutchess County and other non-county lands.

On October 7, 1763, King George III, as part of his Proclamation of 1763, created the new province of Quebec, implicitly setting the northern limit of New York at the parallel of 45 degrees north latitude from the Atlantic-St. Lawrence watershed westward to the St. Lawrence River, implicitly setting the northern limit of Albany County, but it was never mapped. On July 20, 1764, King George III established the boundary between New Hampshire and New York along the west bank of the Connecticut River, north of Massachusetts and south of the parallel of 45 degrees north latitude. Albany County implicitly gained present-day Vermont. Although disputes broke out this line became the boundary between New Hampshire and Vermont, has remained unchanged to the present; when New York refused to recognize land titles through the New Hampshire Grants, dissatisfied colonists organized in opposition, which led to the creation of independent Vermont in 1777. On July 3, 1766, Cumberland County was partitioned from Albany County to cover all territory to the northern and eastern limits of the colony, incl
