Huguenot Walloon Genealogy of the Taine Family
THE HUGUENOT TAINE FAMILY© Lorine McGinnis Schulze 1996
Marie Taine is found in the records as both Marie and Maria, but for simplicty's sake I have chosen to use the variation shown in her court record of 1663, and her marriage to Jean LeRoy in 1671, i.e., Marie. Her brother Isaac Tayne was called Le Pere or The Father, and had emigrated to New Amsterdam some years before Marie's voyage in 1660. Isaac had been made a burgher of New Amsterdam. He wrote his name as Isaac Tayne. [In old French, the letters "i" and "y" were interchangeable, so "Taine" and "Tayne" are really the same. The surname Taine is sometimes even written as Ting.] On 24 June 1666, Isaac obtained a grant of land at New Castle, Delaware, where he was found living in 1676. He married Sarah Reson.
Marie and her husband Philippe Casier sailed directly for the Manhattans from the Texel in the Netherlands on 27 April 1660 on board the Gilded Otter, and settled at Harlem. On 23 July 1664, 17 Harlem residents of both sexes had their names transferred to the register of the church at Fort Amsterdam, to which several of them had previously belonged. Marie Taine and Philippe Casier were among the seventeen listed. The complete list follows:
Former residents or landholders:
The court minutes of 12 July 1663 in Harlem contain the following account:
"Lubbert Gerritsen and Marie Taine declare, by request of Nelis Matthyssen, that they heard Madalena Lodwycks say, at said Madalena's house, that Barentien Dircks had stolen the pork of Jacob Brouwer, which was in a nootas [a bag made of Indian hemp, in which the natives carried their sewant or currency, tobacco, etc. Nootas were in common use among the settlers] by the oven door. The court condemns defendant to pay for the needs of the poor, 6 guilders and the cost of suit"[Note that Madalena Lodwycks was the wife of Simon de Ruine].
After the death of her husband Philippe Casier, Marie sold the lot in Harlem and moved in New Amsterdam, buying a house on the Mrkvelt-steegie. Her sons Jean and Jacques had a bakery there. In 1671 she married Jean Le Roy. Their marriage record is found in:
The List of Persons whose banns of matrimony are entered by consent of the Worshipful Mayor of the City, New York, and according to custom, published in the church:
"April 7th. 1671: Jean le Roy, living at New Haerlem, widower of Louise de Lancaster, with Marie Taine, widow of Philip Casier, living at New York."
Marie is last heard of living on Staten Island in 1677. There were no known children of her marriage to Jean Le Roy.
