The Great Hardenbergh Patent, containing 2,000,000 acres of land in Ulster, Orange, Green, Sullivan, and Delaware Counties, in the State of New York, was obtained by purchase from the Indians in 1706, and confirmed by Royal grant under Queen Ann, April 23d, 1708, to Johannes Hardenbergh, Leonard Lewis, Philip Rokely, William Nottingham, Benjamin Faneuil, Peter Fauconier, and Robert Lurting. Dr. Corwin, in "The Manual of the Reformed Church," says: "Sir Johannes Hardenbergh was Knighted by Queen Ann, on the recommendation of the Duke of Marlborough, for gallantry at the decisive battle of Blenheim. With the order of Knighthood he also received the patent which bears his name."  Bef. 1664, he lived in Bath, England.  On June 8, 1708, John Cock and William Nottingham desired 100 acres each behind Ashokan
and may take it up before any others in that place. (The History of Ulster County, New York by N. Sylvester). William was a lieutenant in Capt. Brodhead's Company of English Grenadiers. They came to America with Richard Nicholl's expedition to capture Nieuw Nederlandt from the Dutch. ("Town of Marbletown Families" Dorothy Pratt, 1995)
ANNE TYE: Ann had sons ( probably in England ), Richard, Charles and Daniel in 1661, 1663 & 1665; joined her husband in Kingston shortly before his death in the summer of 1667. The young Widow Brodhead married William Nottingham in Kingston, an Englishman serving in her late husband's company.

Generation No. 2

2.  WILLIAM2 NOTTINGHAM (WILLIAM1)34,35,36 was born 1670 in Kingston, Ulster Co., New York37,38,39, and died 1731 in Kingston, Ulster Co., New York40,41,42.  He married MARGARET BERGJEN RUTSEN43,44,45 June 22, 1702 in Kingston, Ulster Co., New York46,47,48, daughter of JACOB JACOBSEN and MARIA BERGEN.  She was born 1680 in Marbletown, Ulster Co., New York49,50,51, and died Aft. 1731 in Marbletown, Ulster Co., New York52,53,54.
Town of Olive -- This town was taken mainly from Marbletown, and organized on April 15, 1823. The territory now included in it, or a part of it, is mentioned in deeds of Ulster County dating from 1703 as Ashokan or Ashokant, and lay on both sides of the Esopus Creek. Charles and Richard Brodhead, Joris Middagh, Thomas Jansen and Cornelius Bogart were buyers of the tract, 1703-05, and members of these families may soon have taken up residence there.
Tradition, however, gives the first date of settlement as about 1740. At that time the Middaghs, Coxes, Crispells, Nottinghams, Bushes and Coons supposedly settled there. Indisputable evidence of residence in 1753 is given in the records of the Kingston First Dutch Reformed Church marriages, when a widower, Jan Crispel, is said to have resided in "Schokan," who married a girl residing in Shandaken.
William on 11/21/1715 was Captain of a company stationed at Marbletown.  He was a trustee of Marbletown 5/8/1721.

I leave to my eldest son Stephen 1 for his birthright. My wife is to sell real estate sufficient to pay debts. I leave to my sons, Stephen, Thomas, and William, all that tract of land whereon I now dwell, "being commonly known as the Burnt Orchard," Bounded southeast by the Kings highway and the orchard of Samuel Broadhead, which he hath lately purchased of the heirs of John Cook, and southwest by said orchard; Also a certain parcel of pasture land of my own, which is commonly known by the name of my Hinder pasture; and northwest by the uttermost bounds of my orchard; and northeast by lands of Frederick Mauritz, deceased, together with my mansion house and orchard. If my youngest son, William, shall die before coming of age, his share shall go to the rest. All the lands that may become due to me by virtue of a certain patent, formerly granted by her late Majesty, Queen Anne, to Johanes Hardenburgh and Company, I leave to all my children, Stephen, Thomas, William, Mary, wife of Egbert de Witt, Elizabeth, wife of Martin de Lamater, Bridget, Anne, and Catharine, and all the rest of my lands improved and unimproved.

they are to pay to their four sisters 65. If any of my daughters should die under the age of 18 their share is to go to the rest. I appoint my wife, Margaret, and my sons, Stephen and Thomas, and my sons-in-law, Egbert de Witt and Martin de Lamater, executors.
