This work focuses on those men who established and governed the town of New Rochelle, N.Y., most of them Huguenot emigrants from the Netherlands, and their families. Town records, meetings, deeds of assessment, governance descriptions and appointments. While not genealogy-based works per se, names, dates, and duties of those (primarily males) residing in the town are extensive. The compilation includes settlers/descendants from 1699 through 1828, including lines that expanded to several different counties such as Ulster, Dutchess, etc..

While mostly accurate, if differences are encountered between this work and original vital records, originals should be considered correct unless disproved by subsequent valid research.
