The following quote comes from the source listed below it.
"Estienne (or Stephen) Gaineau of Rochelle, came to New Amsterdam in the summer of 1661, having sailed in May of that year in the ship Beaver from Amsterdam, accompanied by his wife and two children. In 1662, he purchased a house and lot in Pearl Street, west of Whitehall, then the shore of the East river, and in the following year his dau. named Sarah was baptized in the Dutch Church. On the 2d June 1677 he obtained a grant of 80 acres of upland with 10 a. of meadow on the West side of Staten Island by the river side, whence his descendants subsequently moved to New Jersey."
