Dirck Ten Broeck

Dirck Ten Broeck (November 1765 - December 1832) was an American lawyer and politician. The first name is sometimes given as Derick.


He was the only son of Mayor of Albany Abraham Ten Broeck and Elizabeth Van Rensselaer Ten Broeck. His twin sister died before her second birthday.

In September 1785, he married Cornelia Stuyvesant (d. 1825 Trenton, New Jersey) at the New York City Dutch Church. They had twelve children who were baptized in Albany and several more babies that were stillborn.

He studied law, and was admitted to the bar in 1791. He served on the Albany City Council in 1793. He was a Federalist member representing Albany in the New York State Assembly from 1796 to 1802, and was Speaker from 1798 to 1800.
