Blanche Chadeayne Dodge
Wife of Stephen Dodge the Loyalist
by Rebecca Walch, May 2006
In 1771, Stephen Dodge of Oyster Bay, Queens County, New York married his wife Blanche.Blanche’s maiden name was Shaddon according to an 1886 Dodge genealogy.Her maiden name was Shadwin according to a 1904 Dodge genealogy.To learn more about Blanche, I searched through New York records looking for a Shaddon or Shadwin family; I didn’t find any information for either surnameThe information I did find—which I thought could be spelling variations for Shaddon or Shadwin—turned out to be spelling variations for the surname Chadeayne.For example:
• the 1698 New Rochelle census lists Elisabeth, Martha, Mary, Henry and John Shadin—their surname was Chadeayne
• the 1733 will of David deBonrepos of Staten Island refers to Blanche deBonrepos as the wife of Henry Chaden—Henry’s surname was Chadeayne
• the 1772 New York marriage license issued to David Shedwine and Elizabeth Colvil—their names were David Chadeayne and Elizabeth Calwell
• the 1790 Oyster Bay census lists David Sheddon—David’s surname was Chadeayne
I have not found documentation that lists Blanche’s maiden name as Chadeayne, but after a lot of searching I am convinced it was.Blanche’s given name suggests she was the granddaughter of Henry and Blanchard deBonrepos Chadeayne.I suspect Henry and Blanchard’s son Elias was Blanche’s father.
In 1730, Henry and Blanchard deBonrepos Chadeayne were living in Oyster Bay, the birthplace of Stephen Dodge the Loyalist.Their son Henry was born in Oyster Bay that year.Their son David got married in Oyster Bay in 1757.Their sons David and Elias both signed an oath of loyalty to the king as residents of Queens County in 1776.On that document their surname is spelled Chadoyne.It is known that ten of David’s twelve children were born in Oyster Bay.In 1790, David Chadeayne, spelled Sheddon, was listed after Sarah Dodge on the Oyster Bay Census.According to the census there were two females in Sarah’s household.Sarah and her sister Amey/Anne were the single sisters of Stephen Dodge the Loyalist.
The following chronological list contains the information I found when I researched Blanche.The information illustrates various spellings for the surname Chadeayne.My sources for the information are included.I hope this compilation will help Blanche’s descendants and researchers document her life.I am not one of her descendants.I researched Blanche while I was researching her husband, the Loyalist Stephen Dodge.I believe Stephen was related to my great-great-great-great-great grandfather, the Loyalist Stephen Sands.
This document can be shared with anyone interested in Blanche.

Note:There are mistakes in Davis’ information, for example:Jean/John Chadeayne married Marie/Mary Boucherie.It was their son, Jean/John II, who married Judith Tillou.
1718 Henry Chadeayne, born 27 August 1678 in France (the son of Jean/John and Marie/Mary) married Blanchard deBonrepos of New Rochelle, born 1696 (the daughter of Elias and Esther deBonrepos).
1719 I’m guessing this is about when Elias Chadeayne, the son of Henry and Blanchard, was born because his wife Margaret Guion was born in 1719 (see www.chadeayne.com).
1721 “Chadaine - Henry Chadaine was in New Rochelle as early as 1721.
He was a son of Jean Chadaine, a shipmaster and native of Hiers in Saintonge, who fled to Cork, Ireland, in 1682.He came to America and joined the Huguenot settlement at Narragansett, Rhode Island.When that settlement was broken up in 1691, he removed to Staten Island, where he died in 1708.
Henry married Blanche, daughter of Elie De Bonrepos of New Rochelle.He purchased a portion of one of the home lots, and a boat landing at the foot of the present Town Dock Road was named from him “Chadaine’s Landing.”He was elected one of the Assessors of New Rochelle in 1740.”

Note:Judith Tillou married John Chadeayne II, the son of Jean/John and Marie Boucherie Chadeayne.John II was the brother of Henry.
1725 November 13 – David Chadeayne was born, the son of Henry and Blanchard.
Note:Although David was old enough to have been Blanche’s father—she was born about 1752—his first marriage was in 1757.For this reason, I suspect Elias Chadeayne—probably born about 1719—was the father of Blanche.
1730 August 13 – Henry Chadeayne was born in Oyster Bay, son of Henry and Blanchard.
Note:Henry married in 1759.

Note:Blanche deBonrepos, born about 1696, has been listed in Huguenot historical records as the daughter of Elias and Esther deBonrepos and the niece of David and Blanche Dubois deBonrepos.I don’t know when Blanche Dubois deBonrepos died.David married the widow Martha Stillwell about 1711.The will of Martha deBonrepos is dated March 3, 1734/5.It was proved October 23, 1736.Blanche is not mentioned in Martha’s will.

1756 May 4 – John Chadeayne was born at “Just a Mere” Farm in Yorktown, New York.John was the son of Daniel and Marie Secor.Daniel was the son of John Chadeayne II and Judith Tillou.
Note:John was a Loyalist who went to New Brunswick after the Revolutionary War.John’s sister Jude was married to Jeremiah Mabee.Jeremiah was also a Loyalist and is listed on New Brunswick land petitions with John (see www.archives.gnb.ca, Government Records, Land Petitions).John’s sister Sarah was married to Moses Vail.Moses had gone to Nova Scotia as a Loyalist and then returned to New York (see http://www.chadeayne.com/notes.asp?i=47)http://www.chadeayne.com/notes.asp?i=47).
1756 “A very interesting type of bond servant came from Nova Scotia.During the French and Indian War the British feared that the “neutral French” were conspiring against them and therefore distributed the Nova Scotians throughout the provinces … An act of province in 1756 allowed for their well-being, empowering “the Justices of Westchester, Suffolk, Queens, Kings, and Richmond Counties respectively, to bind out such of he Majesty’s Subjects, commonly called Neutral French … Onderdonk believed that this is the origin of the many familiar French names on Long Island – Fournier, Conihane, Legross, Chadoyne.It is very possible for nine of these neutral French were sent to Flushing alone.”

Note:I don’t agree with Ondedonk’s theory in regard to the Chadeayne family.Henry and Blanchard deBonrepos Chadeayne were in Oyster Bay by 1730.

Note:This document establishes that Tristram Dodge of Oyster Bay was married to Sarah Weekes.I believe this was the same Tristram Dodge who had married Sarah Hawxhurst in 1727.Tristram’s wife, Sarah Weekes, had a sister named Amey.Tristram Dodge, the father of Stephen Dodge the Loyalist, had a daughter named Amey according to a 1776 land document.Her name was Anne according to the transcription of Tristram’s 1779 will.

Note:Woodward mistakenly listed Stephen as the grandson of Jeremiah Dodge of Cow Neck.However, Stephen’s father, Tristram, was not Jeremiah’s son.I consider it relevant to note that Woodward did not receive his information from a descendant.Woodward stated, “Judge A.W. Savary of Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, confirms the above parentage in his excellent History of Annapolis County, and writes me, April 29, 1902, that the line was given him by the late William E. Chute, compiler of the Chute Genealogies.”The books by Savary and Chute do not list their sources.Savary stated on page 502 of his History of The County of Annapolis, “Stephen Dodge … was born at Oyster Bay, Long Island, N.Y., 1748, came with his wife Blanche Shadwin and several children, a worthy Loyalist of 1783, and settled first in Granville, but afterwards in Wilmot …He died 1808.”Chute mentions Stephen Dodge only once in his 1895 book A Genealogy and History of the Chute Family in America.On page 21, Chute wrote, “Luther … m., 2nd, Nov. 6, 1851, Emily Dodge (Samuel, Stephen, Tristram, etc.) …”

If Elisha was discharged in August, then he probably remained in New York (see http://www.royalprovincial.com/military/rhist/delancey)http://www.royalprovincial.com/military/rhist/delancey).
