Anthony Bogardus was born about 1682. He was the son of Albany mainstays Pieter and Wyntie Bosch Bogardus. He grew up in a large family in a house in the first ward. Before Anthony came of age, his parents removed to Kingston where his father filed a will in 1702 that named Anthony among his heirs.
In March 1704, Anthony married young widow Jannetje Knickerbacker Lansing at the Albany Dutch church. By 1721, their marriage had produced seven more children. All but one was christened in Albany where he was a regular baptism sponsor.
Anthony Bogardus filed a will which identified him as a "ship's carpenter" of Albany. He died in April 1747 and was buried from his church.
