Rensselaerswyck ( Dutch : Rensselaerswijck ) is the name of a colonial estate specifically, a Dutch patroonship

and later an English manor owned by the van Rensselaer family that was located in what is now mainly the Capital District of New York  in the United States.

The estate was originally deeded by the Dutch West India Company in 1630 to Kiliaen van Rensselaer , a Dutch merchant and one

of the company's original directors. Rensselaerswyck lay on both sides of the Hudson River near present-day Albany and included parts of the present

New York counties of Albany , Columbia, Greene , and Rensselaer .
