Schuyler Family of New York

Schuyler Family of New York

SCHUYLER FAMILY OF NEW YORK. Philip Pieterse Schuyler (pronounced "sky-ler") emigrated from Amsterdam and first appears in the records of Albany on the occasion of his marriage, in 1650, to the daughter of the resident director of Rensselaerswyck. He was a merchant and held offices under both the Dutch and English governments of the colony. His second son, Peter, married Engeltie Van Schaick, and their daughter Margarita married the nephew of the first Robert Livingston. Her sons were the soldiers in the Canada branch of the Livingston family, and her granddaughter tightened the Schuyler-Livingston bonds by marrying the first Robert R. Livingston. Peter's second wife Maria was the daughter of Jeremias Van Rensselaer, a son of the first patroon of Rensselaerswyck. In 1720 Peter and Maria's son Philip married his cousin Margarita, a remarkable woman who helped rear her nephew Philip John Schuyler, the Revolutionary War general.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
