Hamilton County, NY History

Hamilton County, New York

We are beginning to offer items from Hamilton County, New York.  Our initial offerings are listed below, and we hope to add more soon. 

Check back here often to see what's new!


Available for Download


The Hamilton County chapter from Mather and Brockett's Geographical History of the State of New York (1848).  Hamilton was a young county when Mather & Brockett compiled their Geographical History, with a population of only 1800, and that fact is reflected in the scant three pages the authors devote to the county.  Nonetheless, this is an important part of the historical record.  We also include, in addition to the pages about Hamilton County, the section of Mather & Brockett devoted to land grants and patents in New York State.  3++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $1.75.

Hamilton County Board of Supervisors Proceedings for 1926.  This historical document dates from a surprisingly recent time when the Boards of Supervisors of the more rural counties of the state met annually, elected a chairman, and, for the next two weeks, more or less, transacted all of the county's business for the year.  This is a must for those with a serious interest in Hamilton County history.  130+ pages, PDF format, download now for $3.75.

 Hamilton County Supervisors 1926


The Hamilton County chapter from French's Gazetteer of the State of New York (1860).  French's is considered authoritative for the period just before the Civil War, and this chapter is no exception.  Only four pages, but for a county with a total population under 2500 as of 1860, quite comprehensive.  The following localities are mentioned in boldface:  Arietta, Piseco, Gilman, Hope, Hope Center, Benson, Benson Center, Hope Falls, Indian Lake, Lake Pleasant, Sageville, Long Lake, Morehouse, Morehouseville, Wells, and Pickleville.   Short, but an essential part of the historical record.  In addition to the four pages of the Hamilton County chapter, we include the section about land grants and patents in New York State.  4+ pages, PDF format, download for $1.50.

Hamilton County was separated from Montgomery County in 1816.  You may also want to consult our Montgomery County page for locations that may have been affected by this transaction.
