  2. [S676] Thomas G. Evans, "Crispell Family", pp. 83-86: "Antoine Crepel, or, as the name is now spelled, Anthony Crispell. In Mannheim Crispell married Marie, daughter of Mathew Blanshan, another
    refugee from France, and soon afterward — April 27lh, 1660 — set sail with his young wife and his father-in-law, for the New World, in the ship "Gilded Otter ["De Vergulde Otter"]."
  3. [S677] Blanshan Family in America, online, Mattheus, born in 1606, is the immigrant ancestor (at least as far as is known) of all of the Blanshans in America. He was born in 1606 in the former province of Artois, France to Leonin Blanchan and Isabeau LeRoy and baptised in the village of Neuville-au-Cornet in Artois. He married Magdeleine Joire (baptized on October 27, 1611) from Armentieres (Remember the song "Madamoiselle from Armentieres, Parlez Vous?") on October 15, 1633. Magdeleine was the daughter of Petrus (Pierre) Joire and Jacoba Le Blanc or Le Blan. Magdeleine was baptised Catholic (her sponsors were Bartholomeus LeBlanc and Magdalena Gruson), but Mattheus was a Huguenot. The Huguenots were French Protestants from the 16th and 17th centuries, many of whom migrated to other countries due to religious persecution in France.
