Bronx County, NY History

Bronx County, NY

We are happy to offer our first items of genealogy and local history from Bronx County, NY, and we plan to offer additional items of historical interest soon.

"The Bronx" was originally a part of Westchester County, and became a borough of New York City in 1898.  For that reason, publications earlier than 1898 include Bronx material in Westchester.  We will be adding more material in the future that is specific to Bronx County.  Please see also our Westchester County page for material about the area that later became Bronx County.


Now Available for Download


The Westchester County chapter in Mather & Brockett's Geographical History of the State of New York (1848).  Treatment of this county is quite comprehensive in its treatment of the county's physical geography and history but a little spotty in coverage of the towns that comprised it.  Note that the Bronx was not to become a separate county for another half century, more or less.  We also include the two page summary of New York State land grants for background in this download.  8+ pages, PDF format, download now for $3.00
