    Abraham Cuyler
    by
    Stefan Bielinski



    Abraham Cuyler was born about 1663. He was the second son in the large
    family of Albany newcomers Hendrick and Anna Schepmoes Cuyler.

    In 1689, he married Albany native Catharina Bleecker. Over the next two
    decades, most of their eight children were baptized in the Albany Dutch
    church where both parents were members, frequent baptism sponsors, and
    where Abraham was a church officer.


    After briefly residing in the first ward, these Cuylers set up their
    permanent home on Pearl Street - near both of their families. In time,
    Abraham expanded his Albany real estate holdings and acquired lands
    beyond the stockade as well.

    Abraham Cuyler prospered in the fur trade and was elected to the city
    council - first, in 1692, as an assistant and then as alderman for the
    second ward. Active in civic affairs for several decades, he headed
    committees on finances and real estate. His home was a Pearl Street
    landmark.

    Abraham Cuyler lost his wife in April 1734. He filed a will in May 1742.
    It left extensive real property holdings in Albany , Schenectady, and
    beyond to his six surviving children. He died in July 1747.
