At least three Daniel Hewsons were listed on the Albany assessment rolls in 1788. The five Hewson households may have represented three generations of the family also known in Albany as Huson, Hughson, and Huston.
In 1790, five Hewson-named households appeared on the Albany city census.
By 1815, five Hewson households were listed in the "downtown" part of the city.
Robert Hewson Pruyn was appointed minister to Japan in 1861
