  "Annals of Staten Island" by J.J. Clute, NY, 1877. p. 414. "Perine. The original orthography of the name was Perrin. Count Perrin was a Huguenot refugee from Novere; the American family are not descended from him, but the original emigrant was akin to him. The first occurrence of the name in this county was in 1687, where Daniel Perine sold land, and he was probably the progenitor of the Perines of the present day.....The branch which we are able to trace, lived for a century and a half, or more, in the same house, which is still standing, and occupied by them, on the Richmond Road, a short distance north of Garrison's Station, on the Staten Island Railroad. It is probably the oldest dwelling house in the county occupied by the family who built it."

  Rootsweb WorldConnect Patrick Lee Harrington [email protected] "In 1664 James II of England granted patent to territory "New Caesarea" (the present state of New Jersey) to Sir George Carteret, John Lord Berkley, and Lord Stratton. Setting out on the ship "Philip," Philip Carteret, representing his cousin Sir George, set out as appointed first governor of this territory in April 1665. The "Philip" eventually arrived in New York harbor on July 29, 1665, after first landing at Chesapeake Bay for repairs following a very difficult crossing. A painting of the landing was done by Howard Pyle and now rests in the Circuit Court in Newark, New Jersey. | The thirty French and English passengers on the "Philip" included the emigres Daniel Perrin , probably an administrator for the governor, and Maria Thorel. Both of them are in the painting by Pyle. | Daniel was from the Isle of Jersey and "was of gentle birth, of Norman descent, and a Huguenot." (H.D.Perrine) The Perrins, originally from the French mainland, had apparently lived in Jersey a long time as an ancient tower on the island bears the name. The family name appears as early as 1440 in old pedigree charts of families on the Isles of Jersey and Guernsey. These islands have at various times been in the possession of both France and England, finally coming under English rule about 1500, where they have since remained (though Jersey has retained its French influence and culture). However, Daniel's father, Pierre, seems to have come from La Rochelle, France. It is not documented where either were born. | Maria Thorel's family was originally from Rouen, France. Whether Daniel and Maria knew each other before the voyage is unknown. They were married the year following the landing, on February 18, 1666, in what is believed to be the first marriage licensed by Governor Carteret in the new settlement. Daniel and Maria were granted an 80 acre tract on the western shore of what is now Staten Island, called Smoking Point (later included in the boundaries of the current area of Rossville). Their stone house, built in 1688 on Richmond Road, still exists. | On this farm, Daniel and Maria raised six children - five sons and a daughter. Maria died some time before 1687. Daniel later remarried a woman named Elizabeth, with whom he had three daughters. Though it is unknown where Daniel and Maria are buried, a bronze tablet commemorates them in the French Episcopal Church in New York City: "Ile de Jersey - 1665 - Nova Caesarea Pour Honorer la memoire de DANIEL PERRIN et de MARIE THOREL son epouse Refugies pour motif de conscience Maries a Elizabethtowne la 18 Fevrier 1666 Certains de leurs descendants ont places ici cette inscriptions A.D. 1903" " PERINE HOMESTEAD At Dongan Hills, Staten Island. Build about 1713. The original home of the Perine family is said to have been build about 1713 by Joseph Holms, and later came into the possession of the Perines. It is still owned by them. The name was originally spelled Perrin, and the family were French Huguenot, and the first mention of the name in America was probably in 1665, when Daniel Perrin sold some land on Staten Island. The house was occupied by branches of the Perine family for over a hundred and fifty years. During a part of the Revolution t was occupied by Captain Coghlan, of the British army. In front is Todt or Toad Hill, also called Iron Hill because at times iron was found there.
