The Hasbrouck name has morphed into many spellings over the centuries in the US. Among them are: Hasbrouck, Hasbrook, Hasbrooke, HasBrook, HasBrouck, and Hasbroek.
However, it is accepted that virtually all Hasbroucks in America are descended from the brothers Jean and Abraham, French Huguenots, who both arrived in America in the early 1670’s. The stone houses their families built in 1721 still stand on Huguenot Street in New Paltz, NY.
The Hasbrouck Family Association (HFA) was founded in 1957. Its primary goals were the purchase of the Abraham Hasbrouck House and the documentation of family history. (The Jean Hasbrouck House already belonged to the Huguenot Historical Society, with which HFA is affiliated.) With the tireless leadership of Kenneth E. Hasbrouck, Sr., the organization grew.
With a membership of about 300, the Association holds an annual gathering in New Paltz and publishes a newsletter that addresses items of common interest regarding the houses and our heritage, as well as topics submitted or requested by members. It also solicits, maintains and makes available family genealogy information as well as historical information.
HFA offers a number of family-related items for sale. Use the HFA Store Link.
