Staten Island Census, 1706
The Narrows from Staten Island, 1868
Jasper Francis Cropsey
The following transcription is taken from John E. Stillwell's Historical and Genealogical Miscellany, Data Relating to the Settlement and Settlers of New York and New Jersey, Vol I. 1903, pp. 149-156. Stillwell cites "List of the Inhabitants of the Towns of New Rochelle and Westchester for the year 1698," New York Colonial Manuscripts, Vol. 42, p. 60. Obviously this is a census of Staten Island, 1706. The census taker was Lambert Garrison. The accuracy of this census is open to question.
