The story of the Waldron family of early Albany begins with the arrival of Manhattan-born Pieter Waldron during the early 1700s. Pieter's English ancestry but Holland-born father came to New Netherland and subsequently established the Waldron family in New York. The Albany branch descends from Pieter and Tryntie's large family.

In 1756, the census showed three Waldron-named households (William, Pieter and Mrs. Waldron) in the city.

By 1790, no Waldron-named households appeared on the city census while two families were living in surrounding Watervliet.

A number of Waldron daughters became mothers of prominent Albany families across the eighteenth century.

By 1800, the Waldron named had dropped from city rolls.
