    Matheu Blanchan [Blanjean] was born in Noeuville-au-Corne, parish Ricame,
    Province of Artois, France, a son of Leonin and Isabeau (LeRoy) Blanchan.
    He died 7 March 7 1687/8 in Ulster County, N.Y. A Huguenot, he fled from
    Flanders to England before 16 May 1647, when daughter Magdelaine was
    baptised at the Walloon or Strangers' Church of Canterbury. He was in
    Mannheim, Germany, on the Rhine River by 1651. Matheu became burger
    (citizen) of Mannheim. He was among first deacons of French congregation
    formed in 1652. He arrived at New Amsterdam (New York) Apr. 26, 1660, on
    "De Verguide Otter" (The Gilded Otter) with wife and three minor
    children, and daughter Maria and her husband, Anthony Crispel. Blanchans
    were among first Huguenots in Ulster County. Early colonial records of
    New York, both Dutch and English, support conclusion that Blanchan was
    "aggressive and obstinate individual." He frequently was in court as both
    plaintiff and defendant and apparently nursed grudges for years. Also
    appears to have been successful businessman. Owned property in both
    America and England at time of death. He married Magdeleine Jorisse 15
    Oct. 1633 in Catholic Church of Armentieres. They had six children.
