Patroonships, Manors, and Seigneuries

Below is a partial list of Patroonships, Manors, and Seigneuries accepted by the Order. This list is not exhaustive, nor guaranteed to be completely accurate, but should provide a good starting place for genealogical research. As noted in the membership section, descent from a Lord of the Manor does not by itselt convey or guarantee membership. If you have any questions, please contact the Order.

New York and its Jurisdiction

This map, from the 1976 Yearbook, gives most locations. Manors not on the map are Eaton (Eaton's Neck, L.I.), Fletcherdon (in Orange Co.), Fox Hall (near Kingston), and Kingsfield (in Schenectady Co.). There may have been other qualifying patroonships and seigneuries in New York's jurisdiction.
