—“From the registers of baptism of the Department Archives of Charente Maritime, File 39, p.153, 1649-June 1654 we find: Gabriel, son of Paul Le Boyteux and of Elizabeth Le Royer has been baptized Sunday 18 February 1652 by M. Drelincourt. He was born on 10 February 1652. Godfather, Gabriel Le Royer. Godmother, Jeanne Taillourdeau.”
—“After Marquise died, Gabriel sold his New Rochelle land to Andre Nodine / Naudain on November 22, 1694."
— "A map showing the location of Gabriel's house (no. 14) in the old settlement of "Raritan Landing" has been described by Cornelius Vermeule (Vermeule:197). It was located about 900 feet from the east side of the Raritan River in what is now Piscataway Township, Middlesex County, NJ. Vermeule states "Gabriel Le Boyteaux" and wife Constance owned the house from 1704 to 1734, when it passed into the hands of their son Paul and his wife Elizabeth Henry. After 1742 it went out of the family and belonged to George Vroom (Vermeule:198). Another source states the "Le Boyteaux" homestead was sold in about 1742 to Jacob Bogert and in 1746 to Bernardus La Grange, the lawyer (NJHS 54:98). The location of the three farms or plantations, which Gabriel owned have been described as, the three farms west of the road to the wharf. Some of this farmland was sold to Williamson in 1720 (NJHS: 54:91). There is no indication that Gabriel continued as a shipping merchant, but sloops could sail to Raritan Landing and from there, scows could move merchandise up the river."

page 290—"Gabriel Le Boiteux, naturalizad january 5, 1688, made freeman of the city of New York, August 3, 1688, was perhaps a brother of Paul and Pierre Le Boiteux, fugitives from La Rochelle, whose goods were seized February 4, 1685, and who established themselves as merchants in Amsterdam. Gabriel became a prominent merchant in New York, and one one of the first Elders ofthe French Church (in 1688)."
page 292—“Daniel Gombaud, born at Rochell. — (Act of Naturalization, New York, September 27, 1687.) He settled in New Rochelle before 1693. Like his namesake, perhaps kinsman, Moses Gombeau, (see above, p. 234) he had resided in Guadeloupe before coming to America. He was accompanied to New York by Agnes Constance Le Brun, ''born at Guadeloupe," who afterwards became the second wife of Gabriel Le Boiteux”

[26] Source: Compiled genealogy found online, apparently composed by a French researcher as it's written in that language. This source gives that Marquise Fleuriau was born December 16, 1668 at Châtellerault, Vienne, Poitou-Charentes, France and that her parents were Jean Fleuriau and Marie Berthon. It's given that her brother was Francois Fleuriau who married Noémie Peignat, and had a daughter Catherine Fleuriau. Evidently most of the families in this genealogy stayed in France. Addionally, it is given that Marie Berthon's parents were Isaac Berthon and Marquise Dumas who were protestants that married 4 September, 1623 at Châtellerault, Vienne, Poitou-Charentes, France—Marie was the daughter of Benjamin Dumas and Marquerite Texier. Marie Berthon's siblings were Marquerite (AKA "Marquise") who married Isaac Simon; Catherine who married Michel Creuzé de Brenusson; Elie who married Marie Carre daughter of Daniel Carre and Rachel Boutin; Aime who married Madeleine Berthon daughter of Michel Berthon and Marie Fourreau. Regarding Jean Fleuriau, his parents were Francois Fleuriau (born 1611) and Pregente Chamois. Additional children of this marriage are given as Marie Fleuriau (bn 1637), Pierre Fleuriau (bn 1638), Jeanne Fleuriau (bn 1641) and Francois (1645-1692). There is additional information on previous generations as well as birth dates for many of these people.

page 10.—"In the year 1692, when he was intrusted with a small trading vessel of eighty tuns, named the Marquise, belonging to Gabriel Boiteux, a merchant at New York, from whence it was bound for Jamaica, he was taken by a French privateer of St Malo, Julian Boussant, commander, about 106 leagues from whence he came. This happened about, the height of Bermudas, 35 degrees of latitude, and 108 of longitude, and more than 1500 leagues from our continent."
page 21.— "I have heard from Mr. Boiteux at Amsterdam, that the vessel I had ramsomed is not arrived at a good port, through the ignorance of the pilot, who instead of going to New England, went to Tenneriffe, which belong to the Canary Islands, and where the governor seized it, because it was a French prize, and that country belongs to Spain."
page 38.— "My Family is not in Europe, but in New England... I have been two years without hearing from them, but at last the Lord had pity on me, and sent me some news of them by the hands of Messieurs le Boiteux, which I had neither ink nor paper to answer, so I was obliged to write with a pencil to those gentlemen..."
page 45.— "...the Lord open'd a means to Elias Neau to write two letters, in one and the same day, to different persons, one to Messieurs le Boiteux, merchants at Amsterdam, to whom this testimony is due, that their piety forgot nothing at all, that was possible for them to alleviate the pains of these poor sufferers..."
page 50.— "The Superscription of this letter was to Mess. Paul, and Peter le Boiteux, merchants at Amsterdam, dated July 20th, 1696, and wrote from the Isles of the castle of Y, near Marseilles..."

[page 3547] "The record of the committee begins with the following statement of the reasons for its creation:
William Collier (waiter at the Sergeants Arms Tavern, kept by Alexander Sinclair, near the old Barracks) waited upon Joseph Smith Esq., in the city, and informed him that he had some affairs of great importance to communicate to him if he could depend upon being secured himself from danger. Upon which Mr. Smith gave him all possible assurances that, so far from being punished, he should be considerably rewarded if his discoveries were of any importance. Encouraged by this, he said that a number of the inhabitants of the city had met for many months at the house of the aforesaid; that, having heard them during his attendance speak very often disrespectfully of the Congress, and perceiving them very much engaged in writing letters, and remarking that they always suspended their conversation or spoke reservedly when he was present, his suspicions were excited that they did not meet merely for entertainment. On which he concealed himself in an adjoining chamber and, among other things, heard them speak of an engagement which had been entered into in that and the neighboring province to free thenselves from what they called the damnable oppression of Congress; [page 3548] that he understood from their coversations that arms were distributed among the artisans, and that a correspondence was established between them and the army, and that they had formed a design of rising and making themselves masters of some of the pricipal persons in the army of the American States and escaping to Staten Island; that he learned from the conversation that a correspondence for this purpose had been kept up between them and certain persons in the British service, to whom they gave information of the state of affairs amongst us, and from whom they received counsel and money for the better execution of their designs. Mr. Smith questioned him concerning the names of the persons who met at his father's house, and learned from him that Mr. Forbes, Garrison, Cockshall, Burke and Sebring were the most active persons.
The Provincial Congress, on receiving this information from Mr. Smith, being determined to proceed with the utmost caution ordered a party of men the next night to seize Gilbert Forbes, gunsmith, and convet him to safe custody; accordingly a party under the command of Captain Labateau proceeded about two in the morning to the house of Mr. Forbes, in the Broadway; some of them having forced their way into the yard to prevent him from making his escape, the captain knocked at the front door and demanded admittance; on its [page 3549] being open and finding the culprit was in an upper room in bed, rushed up stairs, broke open the door and seized him before he could meditate an escape. They then required his keys, which, after some hesitation, he delivered upon being told that what they did was by the order of the Provincial Congress; they then conveyed him to an apartment in the new goal, where he was properly secured. His papers were then delivered to the Provincial Congress, which met the next day, among which were many letters and minutes which threw great light on the designs of the conspirators..."

Introduction, page xxxvi; “This was the Rev. Louis Rou, who officiated here for the first time on July 30th, 1710. He was the eldest son of the well-known Jean Rou, Councillor to the Parliament of Paris, who took refuge in Holland in 1683. He studied theology at Leyden, and was ordained by the Walloon Synod at Tertholen, August 31st, 1709, at the age of about twenty-six years. His acceptance of the call to New York may have been partly determined by his marriage with Marie Le Boyteulx, members of whose family were already established here. Zealous and talented, the young pastor looked forward, no doubt, to a useful and happy career in the New World… But, unfortunately, these hopes and expectations were not realized. Mr. Rou’s long pastorate of forty years was inaugurated by the death of his young wife and their little son, Louis; and the bereaved husband and father soon found himself involved in difficulties which finally attracted for a time the attention of the entire province, and threatened the very existence of the church of which he was pastor.”

pages 164-165
We have then, at the time Mr. Frelinghuysen took charge of the religious interests in this vicinity, three churches, moro or less completely organized. Raritan in 1699, Three-Mile Run in 1703, and North-Branch in 1719. In process of time the Three- Mile Run church was divided, one portion going to New-Brunswick, and the other to Six-Mile Run. This took place early, as it appears a church was organized there in 1710. The division probably was gradual, and resulted from the preponderance of interest in the Three-Mile Run church, centering in New-Brunswick. There is a list of members of "the Church of the River and Lawrence Brook" dated 1717, and including seventy-three individuals, namely, Adrien Bonnet and wife, Aart Artsen and wife, Isaac Van Dyke and wife, Roelef Sebring and wife, Johannes Folkersen and wife, Hendrick Bries and wife, Roelef Van Yoorhees and wife, Laurens Willimse and wife, Roelef Nevius and wife, Jan Van Voorhees and wife, Minne Van Voorhees and wife, Jacobus Oukee and wife, Johannes Stoothoff and wife, Abraham Bennet and wife, Jakobus Fonteyn and wife, Siarles Fonteyn and wife. Jakobus Buys and wife Thomas Auten and wife, Thomas Davidts and wife, William Klaasen and wife, Thomas Bouwman and wife, Andries Wortman and wife, Johannes Koevert and wife, Hendrick Meech and wife, Bernardus Kuclor and wife, Christofel Van Arsdalen and wife, Jakop Corse and wife, Cornelius Suydam and wife, Joris Anderse and wife, Marten Van der Hoeve, Johannes Metselaer, Samuel Montfort, Jan Aten, William Moore, Niceklas Bason, Maria Frelanth Elizabet Bries, Annatie Folkerson, Heelena Hoglandt, Maregeretie Reynierse, Barbara Janse, Geartic Smock, Elizabet Smock, and Katrina Boyd. These were the original members of the New-Brunswick church. This list adds to the names already given only twelve, namely, Trelanth, Bries, Buys, Van der Hoeve, Bason, Meech, Kuetor, Metselaer, Smock, Van Arsdalen, Boyd, Suydam. At North-Branch, we have Andries Ten Eyck, Abraham Dubois, John Pursell, Josua Chrison, Jan Hendricksen, Daniel Sebring, Coenrad Ten Eyck, Derick and Michael Van Veghten, Alexander McDowall, Jan Van Sicklen, Benjamin Bart, Jacob Stoll, Teunis Van Middleswaert, George Hall, Albert Lou, William Rosa, Paulus Bulner, Lucas Schermerhorn, Pieter Van Neste William Krom, John Cock, Joris Van Neste, Emanuel Van Etten, Johannes Grau, John Emmeus, Coert Jansen, George Dildein, John Reading, Gerret Van Vliet, Hendrick Rosenboom, Frans Waldron, Godfried and Philip Peters, David Cussart, David Subair, Isaac Bodine, Abraham Broca, all before 1723.
