    Primary Immigrant: Pintard, Antoine --Huguenot Reference:

    A Huguenot, Antoine fled France after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes. Antoine and other Huguenots spent some years in the Antilles, in Antoine's case, the island of Saint Christophe, before arriving in America. Antoine may have been the brother of Samuel Pintard, a galley slave in 1695 on the ship La Grande. In France political prisoners were often used as galley slaves.

    Antoine was a prosperous merchant in Shrewsbury, buying land from Sarah Reape in 1692 and Nicholas Brown in 1695. In 1698 he is listed as an assessor of Shrewsbury Township. He was a justice of the Peace and member of the County Court from 1700-1704. In 1701 he was a member of the East New Jersey Provincial Council, being recommended to that position as "one of the persons of best estates in East Jersie."

    At some point he lost his home and possessions in a fire and

    thereafter moved to New Rochelle. He was an elder in the French

    Church in New York and in 1729 resigned the office of Treasurer of the

    poor fund.

    Antoine's will, dated Feb. 24, 1729 leaves 50 pounds to the French

    Protestant Church in NYC and a legacy to William Moulinex, pastor of

    the French Protestant Church of New Rochelle."
