The Hasbrouck Family Association Inc.


Did you know that there is a Hasbrouck Family Association? If you are interested in learning about your living relatives, ancestry and Huguenot heritage, you are invited to join the Association. In case you are not familiar with it, here is a brief summary of some ancestral and Association history:

Is the name Hasbrouck, Hasbrook, Hasbrooke, HasBrook, HasBrouck, Hasbroek, in your lineage?

It is generally accepted that virtually all Hasbroucks in America are descended from the brothers Jean and Abraham, French Huguenots, who both arrived in America in the early 1670’s. The stone houses their families built in 1721 still stand on Huguenot Street in New Paltz, NY.

Kenneth E. Hasbrouck, Sr. devoted more than 45 years to documenting the brothers' lines of descent. The results of his efforts have been published as The Hasbrouck Family In America, Volumes I-VI, including European background in Volumes I & II. In the Preface of Volumes I & II, Kenneth wrote: "Our ancestors, the brothers Jean and Abraham, who married the sisters Anna and Maria Deyo, were indeed individualists! Jean was the eldest, a devout man, quiet, steadfast, firm in his convictions, home-loving and a very good business man. He was content to dwell in simplicity and did not seek public office. His brother Abraham was more socially inclined....... He was an army man with many acquaintances. He accepted positions that took him among the Dutch and away from home. Both brothers had a high regard for learning and family unity. It is interesting to note that some of the characteristics of the brothers have come down to this very day."

The Hasbrouck Family Association (HFA) was founded in 1957. Its primary goals were the purchase of the Abraham Hasbrouck House and the documentation of family history. (The Jean Hasbrouck House already belonged to the Huguenot Historical Society, with which HFA is affiliated.) The Association now has a membership of about 300. It holds an annual gathering in New Paltz and publishes a newsletter that addresses items of common interest regarding the houses and our heritage, as well as topics submitted or requested by members. It also solicits, maintains and makes available family genealogy information as well as historical information.

HFA offers a number of family-related items for sale. Use the Store Link in the column at the left.
