Henry Perrine was born in 1669 on Staten Island, New York, and died in 1734 in New Jersey around the age of 65.

He married Anne Fountaine, the daughter of Vincent Fountaine, Sr. His second wife was Marie -- of Staten Island who was born in 1674 and died in 1765, according to a monument erected in their names.

Antecedents of Henry Perrine and Anne Fountaine included the Vincent, Day, and Martineau families, members of the Huguenot colony established at an early date on Staten Island, New York.

Henry Perrine lived on Staten Island. On Nov 1, 1711, he purchased from Cornelius Longfield a tract of 200 acres of land in Monmouth County (later designated Middlesex County), New Jersey, located between Spotswood and Englishtown on the Matchaponix Neck. He later lived there.

A Henry Perrin is listed along with a Daniel Perrin in the Richmond County Militia, South Company, commanded by Captain James Pollion. (New York Colonial Muster Rolls 1664-1775, Report of the State Historian of the State of New York, Vol 1, page 549) Richmond County included all of Staten Island.

Henry Perrine's father-in-law, Vincent Fountaine, Sr., willed land "to my daughter Anne and hers husband Henry Perrine," being "150 acres of land and meadow, it being ½ of a tract of land in Middlesex County, N.J." (NYHSW 13: 65)

Henry was buried in the Old Stony Burying Ground, now called Hoffman's Burying Ground or Hoffman Hill Cemetery, located near Englishtown/Manalspan, Middlesex County, New Jersey. There is a large stone placed in the cemetery by William Perrine that includes the inscription "Henry Perrin 1669-1734 his wife Marie 1674-1765."

The children of Henry Perrine and Anne Fountaine were: i Daniel ii Anne, m. Pieter Strycker in 1730 iii Henry iv (perhaps) Matthew v (perhaps) William

The children of Henry Perrine and Marie -- were: vi Maria, b. 169-, m. John Van Pelt in 1709 vii John, b. 1690, m. Catherine --, d. 1779 viii Peter, b. ca. 1703
