About Jeremiah Pemberton
Jeremiah Pemberton was born about 1700.
In January 1723, he married Albany native Maria Bradt at the Loonenburgh Lutheran church. Between 1730 and 1735, five of their children were baptized in the Albany Dutch church where his family received services.
Jeremiah Pemberton derived at least some of his income from the city of Albany. In 1723 and later, he was identified as the “bellman” and was paid for his services. He also was paid for cutting wood and for taking down fences. In 1725, he was appointed constable in the second ward. The next year he was made high constable. In 1751, he was one of those who purchased (leased) the ferry for a year.
In 1730, he purchased a lot on the plain in the first ward for 45 pounds.
Jeremiah Pemberton died sometime after March 1751. By that time, his only surviving son, William, had become head of the Albany Pemberton family.
