Like his brother, Hendrick, this Nicholas Bleecker never married. However, his life was much more historically visible than most bachelors. He probably was accounted for in his father's household on the census in 1697. Two years later, he joined with his neighbors in swearing allegiance to the king of England.
In 1720 and 1742, his name appeared on list of second ward freeholders. After 1742, the name of Nicholas Bleecker no longer appeared on Albany rolls. In 1756, Rutger Janse Bleecker's will stated that he had inherited property through the will of his brother, Nicholas Bleecker.
