A succession of private local posts existed in Brooklyn between September 1844 and 1864. The first local post in Brooklyn was a branch of Boyd's City Express Post. John T. Boyd discontinued this Brooklyn post on June 30, 1845, when the new postal laws made it illegal for private companies to carry mail along postal routes. Boyd's Brooklyn agent was Wellington Walton, who is listed in the 1846 city directory as an "express proprietor" at 195 Gold Street in Brooklyn. Walton & Co. City Express covers are dated as early as February 14, 1846. In early 1847, Walton sold out to Henry Kidder who ran the post with help of the brothers Isaac and George Snedeker. The "Kidder's Brooklyn City Express Post" oval handstamp is recorded as early as March 11, 1847. Kidder sold out to the Snedeckers in 1851.
