You might be interested in a discussion of this found at:

Jean Baptiste Anglehart is also an ancestor of mine. In tracing lineages through the Quebec Catholic Parish records I've come to the conclusion that the French priests were trying to spell a German name phonetically into French and came up with various attempts (Jean Baptiste's children appear with various names, such as Engleat). Eventually, many descendants seemed to settle on Anglehart as the spelling. Upon entering the US, my great-grandfather changed to Englehardt, and somehow it ended up as Engelhardt with my father (back to a more traditional German spelling).

I do have more info if you want to contact me by e-mail.
