Birth: 1666
La Rochelle
Departement de la Charente-Maritime
Poitou-Charentes, France
Death: 1730
New Rochelle
Westchester County
New York, USA

Pierre Angevine was born in France in 1666[1], the son of Louis Angevine and Marguerite Chalons of La Rochelle, Charente-Maritime, France.[2]

He died after 1728[3], either at New Rochelle[4] where he once lived, and as some descendants have supposed, or at Scarsdale where he also may have lived and where his sons Louis and Eli lived after his death. He may have held the original lease on the old Angevine Farm in Scarsdale Manor from Col. Caleb Heathcoate (1666-1721).[5] In 1711, Col. Heathcote, first Lord Scarsdale, wrote that he had spent 7 years helping establish the French Church at New Rochelle. The church site adjoined the properties of Pierre Angevine’s father-in-law Elie de Bonrepos and brother Zachariah Angevine. Col. Heathcote worked closely with Rev. Bondet, Zachary Angevine, and others in organizing the French Church[6]. According to Col. Heathcote’s great-great-granddaughter Susan Fenimore Cooper, Col. Heathcote gave the original lease of the farm at Scarsdale to the Angevines in 1704. Westchester County histories by Bolton (v. 2, p. 231) and Scharf (v. 1, p.681) also state that the Angevines leased the farm from Col. Heathcote originally and the Delanceys after him and that the Angevines, descendants of Pierre’s eldest son Louis, had held the farm for 100 years by 1817. Louis’ brother Eli also bought a nearby farm about 1760. Assuming it is correct that Angevines held the lease for 100 years by 1817, then Louis’ father Pierre would have to be the original lessee. Louis was just two years old in 1704, 15 in 1717, 18 in 1720, and 19 when Col. Heathcote died in 1721. Susan Fenimore Cooper said the Angevine lease was held by oral agreement, “without a line of writing,” for a century, from Col. Caleb Heathcote. Her mother Susan Augusta DeLancey, heiress to the property and fourth-generation owner, was the great-granddaughter of Lord Scarsdale, so she should have known the chain of title as well as the Westchester historians did.[7] This may explain why no reference to Pierre’s death or estate has been found in New Rochelle records.
The distance from the burial ground at Trinity St. Paul’s, 311 Huguenot St, New Rochelle, NY to the site of the Angevine farm is only 7.3 miles. Pierre and Marguerite could be buried at either place. The number of “ancient” graves said to be in the Angevine cemetery in 1816-17 varies from eight to a dozen, all based on hearsay with no contemporary written records. But it would seem possible that the remains of the original Huguenot immigrants may have been the first graves there so revered by the family in 1817.

The name Angevine alludes to origins in Angers, the historical capital of Anjou. Numerous unsourced references claim the Angevines of New Rochelle descended from the ancient "Royal House of Anjou" as the early counts of Anjou were called.[9]
FULL BLOODED YANKEE (1946), by Sidney Graves Koon, traces the immigrant Pierre Angevine of New Rochelle back to his great-great-grandfather Louis Angevine (born c1555) of La Rochelle, France, and states that the Angevines came "about 1550" from Angers to La Rochelle. Koon described Louis as the owner of a glass factory of some renown in La Rochelle. On the origin of the surname, Koon comments that the family, arriving from Anjou, were called Angevin by their new neighbors and the nickname stuck, implying they did not use the name prior to arriving in La Rochelle.[10] The date appears slightly late for the adoption of surnames even by middle class Frenchmen, though not unreasonably late. Several other early family histories state that the New Rochelle Angevines came from Loudun[11] in Poitou.[12] La Rochelle today of course is the capital of the modern-day department of Charente-Maritime in the Poitou-Charentes region.

Francois (Francis) Angevine is described as one of two envoys to Cardinal Richelieu in 1628 representing the City of La Rochelle (the other being his son Henri Angevine's future father-in-law, Louis Guinier), indicating a man of unusual influence for the son of a mononymous glassmaker.[13]
Several records in England, and Matthews’ AMERICAN ARMOURY AND BLUE BOOK, state that Pierre Angevine's uncle Andre Angevine, who came with the family to New York or joined them soon after, was a native of Poitou.[14]

After arriving in New York on Feb. 22, 1689,[15] the Angevines were among the early members of the French Church of the St. Esprit (1692), an Episcopal church still in existence today and where the Angevin, DeBonrepos, Guion, and Guinier coats of arms have long been displayed among those of other founding families. The Angevin coat of arms there is a variation of that belonging to the Angevins of Poitou, of which there were several branches, some supposed to descend from the counts of Poitou and the ancient counts of Anjou, the ancestors of the Plantagenet kings. The arms of Angevin du Coudray (de Mauleon) in Poitou, a variant of the arms representing the New Rochelle Angevines, imply descent from the ancient House of Anjou by their similarity to early recorded arms of Angevyn of Lincolnshire and to Angevin of Italy.[16]
Interestingly, while Pierre Angevine is traced back only four generations, both of his wives, Deborah Guion and Marguerite deBonrepos, are traced back to the ancient counts of Anjou (see below).[17]

A St. Esprit church historian stated in 1983 and 1986 that the coats of arms presently hanging in the church are at least third-generation copies of older shields, these last painted to match one another, presentation-wise, sometime in the 1940s by the children of the church, and that he believed there were only a few original or authentic coats of arms there before the 1890s. Most of these arms were hung in the late Victorian period when interest in Huguenot history was kindled[18], and it might strain credibility to believe that more than a small number were based on authentic surviving originals or representations of originals in the surviving records. It also would seem doubtful that so many of the original Huguenot immigrants were armigerous, although a large percentage of them were described as people of above average means and education in France including minor gentry.

There were two Angevin families living in La Rochelle in the 1660s: one, Catholic, whose records are preserved in the Notre-Dame Parish registers; the other Protestant, with few records preserved in the registers of the Reformed Church. Whether branches of the same family is uncertain, though in such a small city it is most likely.[19] As the histories of the Guion and Bonrepos families show, both of Pierre Angevine's wives were Huguenots related to other Protestants as well as Catholics of high standing.

Immigrants to America Before 1750 by Virkus (1965), p.62: "ANGEVINE, (also Anjevine), Peter or Pierre (b. France 1666), Huguenot, Came to New Rochelle, N.Y., with brother Zacharie Angevine (q.v.)...." [20]
Full Blooded Yankee by S.G. Koon, Angevine Genealogy by Clyde V. Angevine, Angevine Family by James Stuart Angevine, and In America: The Angevines by Erma Angevine, all concur with Virkus that the two immigrants were likely brothers.[21]
Morgan Seacord (Biographical Sketches of the Huguenot Settlers, pp.9-10) said he wasn’t sure they were brothers.[22] But other sources tend to agree they were.[23]

Cutter, “New England Families Genealogical & Memorial” (1914), vol. 2 pp. 666-7, says of Zachariah Angevine: “We know of no brothers and sisters in this country.” Then he goes on to state (incorrectly) that Pierre was the son of (his brother) Zachariah, and born about 1680, evidently basing the age on his first appearance (1705) in the New Rochelle records after Zachariah was on record in 1790. Cutter goes on to mention Pierre’s children Louis, Pierre (m. Margaret----), Marie, John, & some of their children. [24]

S.G. Koon believed Zachariah and Pierre were brothers but likewise had a different interpretation of records regarding Pierre Angevine Sr. and Jr. He showed Pierre Angevine and wife Deborah Guion as having son Pierre born 1697 who married Marguerite Secor and being parents of Eli (b.1719) and Esther. Pierre Sicord witnessed the baptism of these children of Pierre & Marguerite (de Bonrepos) Angevine. Clyde Angevine did not believe Koon correct on this point due to bible records Mr. Koon did not have access to and to Pierre Jr. not being included in the 1710 census, adding “if he existed,” this Pierre Jr. died young by 1710 and another Pierre/Peter Jr. was born 1714.[25]
Grenville MacKenzie’s history of Westchester shows Pierre and first wife Deborah having just one son Louis and two daughters, then by his second wife Marguerite de Bonrepos, daughter of Eli de Bonrepos, having Pierre Jr. born 1714, Eli born 1719, Esther, etc.[26] Clyde Angevine concurred with MacKenzie on this point.

The Angevines were Huguenots, or French Protestants, who fled from France in Spring 1686. 18 family members left, four of them dying on the way.
Pierre's grandmother Marie Angevine and great-grandfather Louis had died some years earlier during the Siege of La Rochelle (September 1627 through November 1628). Born about 1550 (either in Anjou or Poitou), Louis Angevine was living in La Rochelle by 1580 where he was a glass maker in his own shop. By 1628, his son Francois (Francis) Angevine owned a glass "factory" employing four guildsmen and 20 apprentices. During the Siege, he was also a captain of the guards defending the city. In September 1628, Captaine Francois Angevine and Louis Guinere were representatives of the city appointed to meet with Cardinal Richelieu to negotiate terms of surrender. Francois Angevine's son and Louis Guinere's daughter later married and were the parents of immigrant Andre Angevine as well as grandparents of immigrants Pierre, Zachariah, and Susannah Angevine.

In 1685, sixty years after the last Siege of La Rochelle, the Edict of Nantes was revoked. In spite of a death penalty issued for those who fled abroad, more than 400,000 Huguenots left France. Although a large number of refugees were brought back to France, about 100,000 settled in Friesland and Holland, 75,000 in Germany, 50,000 in England and 25,000 in Switzerland, and still others went to other countries. 18 members of the Angevine family fled to Holland in the spring of 1686, where they stayed two years before the surviving 14 sailed from England to America in December 1688. Four of the refugees died leaving France, including Pierre Angevine's sister-in-law Anastasia Baptiste Angevine and her infant son, another child and an elderly lady. They joined other refugees in Holland. Two small shiploads of approximately 150 Huguenots eventually landed in New York City on February 22, 1689, but they decided not to settle there. They learned of an area on Long Island Sound which was almost unoccupied. The present-day city of New Rochelle, Westchester County, N. Y., is the location where these people established their own French Huguenot community. Their town and church records were kept in French for the first forty years or more. [27]

A monument at Bonnefoy's Point in Hudson Park marks the landing site of the 33 French families, including the Angevines. Pierre Angevine's brother Zachariah appears more frequently in the early records of New Rochelle, holding offices from 1700 onward. Pierre Angevine owned a small lot of land by the water-side as early as 1714. Town records show that Pierre Angevine was elected one of the Assessors 25 April 1705 (the earliest record found); assessor 1707; overseer of highways 1715, 1718; pound-master 1718. He and Louis Guion sold land (1715) to Charles Fourestier who married Jeanne Guion/Guyon.[28]

Clyde Angevine, p. 14: “Records for Pierre Sr are very scant, in comparison to those found for Zachariah. No proof has been found that Pierre resided in NYC or New Rochelle, prior to 1705. He was not listed in the NYC Tax Lists covering the period 1695-99 (5003). He was not found in the 1698 New Rochelle census records (when Zachariah was), nor in the NYC census of c1702. No baptisms for the children, except for Esther, were found in either NYC or New Rochelle. If he came to America the same time that Zachariah did, it seems strange that he wasn't shown in some of the records.[29]

Caleb Heathcote, Lord of Scarsdale Manor since 1701, was active in New Rochelle during the same period. If Pierre Angevine lived part time at the farm in Scarsdale from 1704, as Susan Fenimore Cooper's writing seems to indicate, and part time in New Rochelle as his landlord Col. Heathcote did, this would explain the fewer records for him at New Rochelle.

Both wives of Pierre Angevine were members of Huguenot families, and both descended from the House of Anjou and thus royal Angevins by blood descent.
First wife Deborah Guion Angevine was a 23rd-great-granddaughter of Geoffrey, Count of Anjou, son of Fulk II.[30]
Second wife Marguerite de Bonrepos Angevine was a great-great-granddaughter of the Governor of Embrun, and her 6th-great-grandfather, Lord Bonrepos, was the secretary of the Dauphin of France.
Marguerite de Bonrepos Angevine's great-grandmother Blanche d'Aultric de Vingtville was a daughter of sir Gaspard d'Aultric de Ventimille, knight of the order of the King and gentleman of the chamber, and his wife Francoise Simiane, Lady Beaumettes. Blanche descended from numerous kings and queens, was a 23rd-great-granddaughter of Charlemagne the Great, and had multiple descents from the House of Anjou, one being her father Gaspard’s 19th-great grandmother Adelaide-Blanche of Anjou, daughter of Fulk II, Count of Anjou. Adelaide-Blanche was the Queen of Aquitaine and Countess of Toulouse, Provence, and Burgundy. Two children of Adelaide-Blanche were ancestors of Blanche d'Aultric de Vingtville de Bonrepos, the great-grandmother of Marguerite de Bonrepos Angevine. [31]

Pierre Angevine's mother Marguerite de Chalon(s) may have descended from the ancient counts of Anjou as well, but her lineage has not been determined. The Houses of Anjou and Chalon(s) intermarried numerous times from earliest days.[32]

Pierre Angevine’s birth in 1666 at LaRochelle to Louis and Marie is given in S.G. Koon and C. V. Angevine. “Records from the Municipale Archives of La Rochelle and the Bibliotheque Municipale of La Rochelle, France (28 rue Gargoulleau 17025 La Rochelle Cedex) state that Pierre Angevin was born 23 Dec 1666; baptised 25 (29) Dec. 1666, the Parish of Notre-Dame, La Rochelle, France; father - Jean L'Angevin, mother - Radegonde Lebeau; godfather - Pierre Valin; godmother - Perrine Renier." This may or may not be the same Pierre Angevine who died there 20 April 1677, but clearly is not a son of Louis and Marguerite Chalons Angevine. In fact, he was born to Catholic parents. Family historian Clyde Angevine, however, said he received baptism records pertaining to Pierre Angevine of New Rochelle and his sister Susannah after the publication of his book which did not completely confirm they were siblings of Zachariah, as had been stated in other references, but gave strong indication or further evidence this was correct.

3. Clyde Angevine, p.12, says he died sometime after the baptism of daughter Esther in 1729. "Baptisms at New Rochelle French Church" p. 9: Copied by Mrs. Lucetta Cordelia H. Cole (Mormon film 017,795 & 017,79) p.9:
Thursday 4 Dec I729 was baptized Esther, dau of Pierre Angevin and Marguerite his wife ..
and presented to H.B. by Mr. Ppier (Pierre) Secard, Marie Angevin and Esther Angevin, Parrain (godfather) and Marrain (godmother) by L. Stouppe.

One of many Angevine family trees on gives his death date as Jan. 17, 1740, source not cited. Zachariah died between 26 Oct 1739-17 Jan 1740, so apparently the 1740 date comes from confusing the two brothers.

4. Clyde Angevine, pp.7, 12; Koon infers as much also.

5. Susan Fenimore Cooper wrote that the Angevines had held the lease on the farm at Scarsdale since 1704. In another account she wrote they had held the lease for 100 years by the time her parents moved there in 1817. According to her, the original lease was granted them directly from her great-grandfather, Col. Caleb Heathcote (1666-1721), first Lord of Scarsdale Manor (1701-21), and held by oral agreement through four generations (of Heathcotes and Delanceys). Bolton & Scharf seem to interpret this allusion to four generations of Angevine tenants, which appears to be the confusion. In one account, Susan F. Cooper stated that her father set into the house at Angevine a stone carved with the date 1816, apparently commemorating its building (and meaning the Angevines were there by 1716). Various other articles say J.F. Cooper built “Angevine” 1817-18.

Clyde V. Angevine, p. 8, says Louis Angevine resided there “as early as 1750”; p. 21 says “from around 1750 to around 1820.” Other references indicate the family resided there about 1720.

Bolton v. 2, p. 231 & Scharf v. 1, p. 681:
“Prominent among the families of the eastern side of the town of Scarsdale in former years were the Secors, the Angevines, the Griffins and the Palmers. The first named family has always figured prominently in the town's history. The Angevines, originally tenants under Colonel Heathcoate and De Lancey, held the large farm bearing their name for four generations. This was located on the northeast side of Mamaroneck Road in the town of Scarsdale, about a half mile beyond the Fish mansion.”

Westchester County, New York, During the American Revolution (1886), by Henry Barton Dawson, p. 1: “An instance of the permanence of occupation, by tenants on the Manors, is seen in the case of the Anjevines (sic), thus referred to by Mr. Bolton: ‘Under the Heathcotes and De Lanceys, the Anjevines held the large farm,’ (in Scarsdale,) ‘bearing their name, now owned by Alexander M. Bruen, M.D., for four Generations.’—History of Westchester County, second edition, ii., 231.

Clyde Angevine says brothers Louis & Eli were both at Scarsdale c1750. There is some confusion between references to Louis Angevine’s brother Eli and Louis’ grandson Elijah (son of John) who owned the Angevine farm in 1843. The Angevine-Morris house on the farm is shown in some notes as being acquired c1760 by brother Eli from James Hatfield, an original Heathcote tenant whose land adjoined the Angevine farm. This may be an incorrect assumption simply because the Angevine deed is not recorded and the Hatfield deed was. There is a school of thought that the original Angevine house was in the vicinity of Brookfield Lane and a different house from the Angevine-Morris house. Not verified; but if so, and if Eli’s conveyance from Hatfield is recorded, it may be his brother Louis’ lease went unrecorded during the same period because he inherited it from his father through primogeniture.

6. Hist. of Protestant Episcopal Church of New Rochelle (1855), by Robert Bolton pp.418-23. In 1711 Heathcote wrote that had spent 7 years working to secure a French Church for the Huguenot refugees there, with the help of Gov. Hunter, Rev. Daniel Bondet, and others. The original patent to the church, finally granted in 1714, mentions Rev. Bondet, Elias de Bonrepos, Zachary Angevine, and several others.

Page 200 states specifically: “The family of Angevine had become tenants on the Manor of Scarsdale, of which Colonel Heathcote was the owner in 1704.” Col.

"ANGEVINE (also Anjevine), Peter or Pierre (b. France 1666). Huguenot, came to New Rochelle, N.Y., with bro. Zacharie Angevine (qv); m.Deborah_____, issue (of record): …."

21. Full Blooded Yankee by S.G. Koon, Angevine Genealogy (1977) by Clyde V. Angevine, p.14; Angevine Family by James Stuart Angevine, and In America: The Angevines by Erma Angevine, all concur with Virkus that the two immigrants were brothers.
Also: The Connecticut Nutmegger, vol. 11 (1978), p.337; Paula Wheeler Carlo, Huguenot Refugees in Colonial New York (2005), p.217.

22. Morgan H. Seacord, Biographical Sketches of the Huguenot Settlers (1941), pp.9-10.

23. Paula Wheeler Carlo, p.217: “Clyde Angevine is convinced they were siblings.” Also The Connecticut Nutmegger vol. 11 (1978), p.337. S.G. Koon, Clyde Angevine, James Stuart Angevine, Erma Angevine. The belief is largely based on association and interaction between the families of the two Angevines at baptisms, naming patterns, marriages, etc. In the 1710 census, Zachariah and Pierre (Peter) lived six households away from each other.

24. William Richard Cutter, “New England Families Genealogical & Memorial” (1914), vol. 2 pp. 666-7.

25. Clyde Angevine, p.20: Pierre Jr b.c1697, if he existed, must have died before the 1710 census (not listed). Then another Pierre/Peter Jr was b.1714.
Page 14: "The New Rochelle Town Records (5006) in 1718, page l60, referred to Sr. Pierre Angevine, which indicates that he had a son Peter Jr.; I can't be sure whether this refers to #14 or #18 Peter. At this point a conflict develops because Mr. Koon (5001) shows that #14 Pierre Jr grew up, married Margerite SIC0RD, and they had Eli and Esther, which I have shown as 19 & 20 above. See #14 Peter for further comments.CVA"
Page 22: “I feel that had Mr Koon (5001) known about the Family Bible records (5048) which surfaced in 1957, he might have come to a different conclusion. However, there is still a possibility that he is still correct. Perhaps time will prove things out, one way or the other. CVA”

26. "The Families of the Colonial Town of Philipsburgh, Westchester County, N.Y.," by Grenville C. Mackenzie, (Westport, Conn., 1930), vol. 1, p.28. Mackenzie cites no documentary source for Pierre's second wife Margaret being the same Marguarita de Bonrepos, daughter of Elie or "Elias de Bonrepos" on the English Denizen Records (2 January 1690), other than her children being baptized Eli and Esther Angevine obviously for her father Elie and his first wife Esther (rather than Elie's second wife, Jane, who was living at that time).
