About Major Johannes G Hardenbergh Kt

Knighted by Queen Anne in 1708 when he recived the Great Hardenbergh Patent to 2,000,000 acres.


He was also known as Sir Johannes Hardenbergh Sr.

He was a High Sheriff of Ulster County in 1690 at Ulster County, New York. Between 1702 and 1708 he was Knighted for service against the French. He was in the military and was a Major in the Ulster County Militia.

n 1706, Hardenbergh bought the immense tract of land since known as the "Hardenbergh patent", which covered some 2,000,000 acres (8,100 km2) of the Catskill Mountains in what is today Sullivan, Ulster and Delaware counties, from Nanisinos, sachem of the Esopus Indians, for the sum of 60 pounds.[1] The purchase was subsequently confirmed and patent was granted to Hardenbergh and six others in 1708. There were some disputes as to whether Hardenbergh's acquisition of the property had been truly legal. Indeed, in 1769 another former British officer, John Bradstreet, filed a claim to 50,000 acres (200 km2) based on that very assumption.

Shares in the patent changed hands frequently, and the terms under which the land was sold or leased were so varied and complex that it impeded settlement of the district and clouded the title to most of its tracts until well after the American Revolution.

"G" is for Gerritse from father: Capt. Gerrit Janse Hardenbergh.
