Jeremias Schuyler was born in January 1698. Named for his maternal grandfather, he was the son of Albany leader Pieter Schuyler and his second wife, Maria Van Rensselaer Schuyler. All five of those offspring lived to adulthood and remained connected throughout their lives. Jeremias also was the twin brother of Pieter Schuyler, Jr.
During the early 1720s, Jeremias married Susanna Bayeux - the daughter of a prominent New York Huguenot family. Beginning in 1723, their five children were baptized in the Albany Dutch church where he was an occasional baptism sponsor.
Jeremias Schuyler lost his wife in 1747. He died in December 1753 and was buried in the family plot at the Flats.
