The DuChaine (and all the great variety of varient spellings in the Reformed Dutch Church Records of Staten Island) family was one of a number of interrelated Huguenot families that settled on Staten Island.Antoine's sons all left Staten Island for Delaware but most of the other families stayed in the area.I have had a much easier time tracing a number of Antoine's daughters since they stayed in the Staten Island area. The only information I have on the grandchildren is that published in the Staten Island Reformed Dutch Church records. I have limited access to the records from Delware and I was curious about the children of the Antoine's four sons: Jerome, Valentine, Michael and Garret.Since I could not find wills published for any of the sons, I wondered if there were land records that might give the information about the Antoine's grandchildren in DE.
For myself, I am a descendant of Jannetje Du Chesne.She was b. about 1675. I do not have a death date.She married two times (1) Peter Janse Roll and (2) Teunis Egberrt and had children by both husbands. Children of Jannetje Du Chesne and Peter Janse Roll were: Catherine Mangels Roll, Antje Mangels Rol, Martje Roll, Francyntje Roll, Margrietje Roll, John Mangels Roll and Jannetje Roll.
Antje Roll married Samuel Burnet.Smauel died when Antje was pregant with a son Sameul Burnet. The son, Smauel Burnet (Jr.) was baptized at the Reformed Dutch Church of Port Richmond Staten Island on Oct. 19, 1718.Antje (Roll)(Burnet) married Jacob Ryt (Wright) and moved to NJ.Samuel Burnet was raised by his stepfather and had no information that he was descended from Thomas Burnet of Southampton, Long Island, NY.
I am interested in information on grandsons of Antoine DuChaine that settled in DE and their families.
