Daniel Perrin (1642–1719) was famous as one of the first permanent European inhabitants of Staten Island, New York. Known as "The Huguenot," he arrived in New York Harbor from the Isle of Jersey on July 29, 1665 aboard the ship Philip, under the command of the famous first colonial governor of New Jersey, Philip Carteret.
His first marriage was to Maria Thorel, born 1649 in Rouen, Normandie, France; she had also emigrated on the Philip in 1665.
They were married on 18 February 1666 in Elizabethtown, Province of New Jersey, by James Bollen, Peace Justice.

From "Genealogical and Memorial history of the state of New Jersey " 1910:
"The Perrine family of New Jersey is of old French Huguenot extraction, and belongs among the earliest of the old French colonists who came to this country. They traced their lineage back to the group of refuges who were brought over to East Jersey by Sir Philip Carteret in 1665, when he came over to take charge of the government of that province."
"Daniel Perrine, the emigrant ancestor of the family in this country, reached New York Harbor on the ship "Philip," July 29, 1665. It is said that he was a descendant of Pierre Perrine, of Lower Charente, France, who had fled from the persecution consequent on the revocation of the Edict of Nantes by Louis Quatorze in October 1685 [sic - the Perrin(e) family fled in the 1660s, 20 years before the Revocation but religious persecution of Huguenots under Louis XIV had begun by 1650]; carrying with them only the wealth that they could conceal about their persons, Pierre and his family embarked at La Rochelle, and by the way of the Netherlands, found their way to England, from whence Pierre's descendant Daniel came over to America."
"Daniel was married in the year following his arrival in East Jersey, and removed to Staten Island where his children were born. February 12, 1666, Governor Carteret issued the marriage license to Daniel Perrine, of Elizabethtown, and Marie Thorel, a French girl who had come over in the same ship with Daniel. This marriage is said to have been the marriage celebrated in the Elizabeth plantation. She bore her husband six children. He married again after 1687, and his second wife, Elizabeth, bore him three more children."
It is not clear if Daniel was born on the Isle of Jersey or in Normandie. The Perrin and Carteret families were friendly on Jersey and may have intermarried.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Daniel by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage (beta) of DNA with Daniel:
