 Town of Colonie- Early history
After obtaining the approval of the States-General, Van Rensselaer sent instructions to Sebastian Jansen Crol at Fort Orange, to purchase from the Indians a tract of land sufficient in size for the settlement of a colony.

During the early years of the Van Rensselaer's patroonship most of the colonists remained in close proximity to Fort Orange probably as a result of their interest in participating in the fur trade, even though many of them had signed farm leases.
