The patronymic "Everts" evolved into Evertse and then to Evertsen in eighteenth century Albany. The family lived[1] first in New Amsterdam/New York. A number of "Evertse" lines without a clear, single common ancestor restrain us from making potentially pre-mature connections.

The precise origins of the Albany Evertsens are unclear but the earliest common ancestors appear to be "Evert Janse "de cuyper" and his wife "Maria." Perhaps Evert was alive in 1725 when he is said[2] to have filed a will.

Their sons Jacob Evertse (1671-1755) and Jan Evertse (also 1671-1726) raised families in Albany and were connected with the Lutheran church in Albany and down the river.

After the home of "cryer[3]" "Hans Egar," two possible Everts-named households[3] were listed on the census of city buildings in 1756[3].

Two Evertsens received land bounty rights in conjunction with the city militia regiment following the War for Independence.

In 1790[4] and in 1800[5], three Everts-named households appeared on the city census.

The first city directory in 1813[6] included four Everts-named households. Two years later, six Everts addresses were listed including that of cordwainer Jacob Evertsen, whose name was italicized[7] in the listing thus identifying[7] him as a "free person of color."
