The Knickerbocker Family Page  


Welcome! You have probably wondered how Knickerbocker has become such a widely recognized name and how you might be related to such a famous tribe. Every Knickerbocker is related - the name was concocted by our common 17th century immigrant ancestor, Harmen Jansen Van Whye. This presents an almost unique opportunity for a single name family society, as everyone is connected. Hi Cousin!

This Web Site is presented in support of The Knickerbocker Historical Society - which is restoring the late 18th century Family Mansion at Schaghticoke, NY. The site was occupied by Knickerbockers for 250 years.

This site will also provide a repository of family information for anyone interested in the history and genealogy of the Knickerbocker Family.
