Duryea-Murray-Walter Family History

For this section, I have found a great deal of information from two sources: A History of Long Island by William S. Pelletreau published in 1903, and The Descendants of Jonathan Murray of East Guilford CT by William B. Murray, published around 1900. Because of our family's proud relationship to Winston Churchill, I have also included the confluence of our family trees herein via the Murray family. With all of the lines, I have attempted to trace them back to the first of their line to immigrate to America, but I have been unsuccessful doing that with the Walter line, going back from my paternal grandmother's grandfather, George Kraus Walter, married to {8} Albina Landstreet (below). In the Generation numbering, I have begun with {-1} so that the generations would align with my other sections.

Several of the ancestors herein lived in early New York and it should be pointed out that what we know as New York was founded in the early 1600's by the Dutch as New Netherland Colony (Nieuw-Nederland in Dutch) (which I abbreviate as NN below) and, during the 2nd Anglo-Dutch War, was taken over by the British in 1664 when it was renamed the Province of New York. What we now know as Brooklyn (or Breucklen under the Dutch) was broken up into several small towns, such as Bushwick (Boswijck) and Flatbush (Midwout), until they were consolidated into the city of Brooklyn in 1854, which in turn was consolidated into New York City in 1898. And Manhattan was known as New Amsterdam under the Dutch.
