Old Families of Staten Island by J J Clute - pg 79 "The original orthography of the name was Perrin. Count Perrin was a Huguenot refugee from Nouere; 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. Like many other old families in the county, they have a family record, but very imperfect, except perhaps for the last two or three generations. 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.......

"This Old Monmouth of Ours Freehold, Moreau Brothers, 1932 William S. Horner Pierre of Lower Chalfont, France with a large number of Huguenots fled intolerable religious prosecution in their own country and came to America. He immigrated at the instigation of his son Daniel who had come several years before and settled at Elizabeth, New Jersey in 1665 The Staten Island Perrines proceeded from Pierre Perrine. The story is told that they came in the Caledonia and that they were shipwrecked on that Island. They were kindly treated and made it their home. From here they spread into Long Island, NY and in some cases among their brethern in New Jersey.
Pierre Perrine, b. in Lower Chalfont, France, d. NY. fled from persecution that followed revocation of Edict of Nantes in 1685 by Louis 14th & went west to Netherlands, then to America.
