^itllF City of Newbur^h was orij^inallv settled in
i 1709, by a company of inimij^rants from the Pala-
tinate of the Rhine. This company, driven from their
homes by the wars which had deyasted the Pahitinate
during: the reign of Louis XlV'th, reached London in the
sprinir of 1708, and were sent to New York by Queen
Anne in September of that year, under the guaranty of
()(\. a day per head for twelve mf)nths for their support,
and a grant of land on which to settle. I'rom New
York they were removed, in the spring of 1709, to the
district then described as " Quassek creek and Thans-
kanier." The descriptive list under which the company
was naturalized includes the following families and coi>-
stitutcs substantially the

The names given include, in many


instances, members


of families, as


the lists embraced all


males over sixteen


years of age.


Their places of residence were scattered


from Balmville to Quassaick creek.


The center of the


settlement, ho


wever, was, as alread;y


' stated, on Liberty


street from South street north, a district which carried


the name of "


old town " for many years after the cir-


cumstances w


lich gave rise to it had passed away.


Speaking of the village at the pe


riod of the Revolu-


tion, the late J


ames Donnelly wrote


: " It certainly was


one of the most forlorn looking places that I ever saw.


It had but one


opened street, the King's highway (now

Liberty street) — a very good one to be sure — along
which was scattered a few old-looking browti houses;
and that was the village, for below the hill there was
comparatively nothing except the Colden house and
store-house, Isaac Belknap's house, and the ferry. The
side-hill was covered with orchards principally. The
road to the ferry was an irregular one ; it ran across
the farm of Hasbrouck and the Colden plot from Has-
brouck's grist-mill to the south-west corner of Colden
and First street, and thence circled a;"ound the hill to
the river, which then ran close u}> to the present east
side of VV'ater street. Colden built a small dock here,
and the road ran behind the store-house. Those having
goods to store there unloaded into the second story of
the building. When the army came here the lower part
of the Smith farm was occupied by store-houses for the
commissary department and quarter-master and by bar-
racks for the soldiers connected with those departments.
Adolpih DeGrove came here in 1776, a refugee from
New York, and built a tavern on the south-west corner
of Water and Third street; it was La Fayette's head-quar-
ters when he was here. The old armv buildings were af-
terwards used for business purposes, and the old hotel
became McAulev's store. The old Colden road was then
