The will of Gabriel Stelle was dated March 24. 1734-5, and proved Dec. 23, 1738; it named wife Margaret, sons Thomas Gordon Stelle, Pontus Stelle and Isaac Stelle, and daughters, Elizabeth and Catharine. Executors, wife, Margaret, son Pontus and son Thomas Billop." This family receives treatment (post).
(NOTE), A son, Pierre or Peter, of Poncet Stelle is omitted.--O.E.M. Millstone, New Jersey, Church (Vol. XXVI, p. 67). Reference to JOHN INIANS:

A family surname of historic renown. Strange to say PONCET was as frequently a surname as a prename, as for illustration in the vital records above, the name, PONCET TOILE appears, which could easily have been the origin of the PONCET STELLE of New Jersey.

The story of the ancient House of Savoy is best told in one rather old book and one more modern, namely;
(a) Les Gloires de La Savoie par Jules Philippe, Paris, 1863, and "ANNECY, D. MONNET, Libraire";
(b) phmrides -- Illustrations et Clbrits Savoisiennes--par Norbert Dunoyer, 1912, in which are given biographical notes of PILLET, PONCET, SOVOIE, SAVOYE, PERRIN, and, particularly, concerning "MONET (Pre Philibert) jsuit," which shows his birth in 1566, at Bonneville (Savoy), and his death in 1643. He was the author of "l'Origine et Pratique des Armoiries la Gauolise," 1631, (Vide, ante, p.). In the first book, above, are sketches of "MONET (la gnral), MONET (AIMON), and MONET (Philibert)," who were all ancient Savoisiennes.

These families, certainly, SAVOY, MONNET, and STELLE, at the period of the widening schism in the Roman Catholic Church, by some (page 261) representatives traveled westward across France to the French Huguenot centers in the ancient Province of Poictou and neighboring Protestant sections of France--that was before 1685.

STELLE FAMILY
It has been thought worth while to preserve, as an illustration appears upon the reverse hereof, the signatures of the first immigrant of this family to New York and New Jersey, PONCET STELLE, SIEUR DES LORIERES, and of his grandson of the same name but who signed as PONTIUS STELLE, and nephew of the REV. BEXJAMIN STELLE, who was a son of the immigrant, the last two being on the same document with the signature of JACOB DENNIS, who was a descendant of the first of the name, in Piscataway and Woodbridge, as well as the others, and their descendants.

The names, with births and deaths, are to be listed as follows:
I. Poncet Stelle, Sieur Des Lorieres, b. ca. 1650 at
Lorieres, France, d. ca. 1735. Wife Eugenia
Legereau.
II. Pontius Stelle, Monmouth County, New Jersey, b. May 12, 1705, son of Gabriel Stelle, son of the
immigrant.
III. Rev. Benjamin Stelle, born 1683, d. 1759, always claimed to have married Mercy Drake, dau. of
Capt. George Drake of Piscataway, New Jersey, who was born Jan. 21st. 1684, and d. Dec. 21st.
1746; however, it has been recently urged with much reason that she was Mercy Hull, b. Jan.
22, 1683, dau. of Samuel Hull and Mary Manning, and that she was first married to Thomas
Piatt, June 1, 1703, who died in 1706-7, and as his widow, she became the wife of REV. BENJAMIN

STELLE.
The three oustanding compilations relative to this family are the following:
(1) STELLE, (See Bibliography PART ONE, p. 32), and
(2) STELLE, (See Bibliography, PART THREE,
p. 323, ante, for full accounts), and,
(3) THE LIFE AND TIMES OF PONTIUS D.
STELLE by Miss Maud Burr Morris, (Reprinted from the Records of the Columbia Historical
Society, 1903.).
In relation to the photographs of the first PONCET STELLE and his wife as given in the preceding authority, there is some doubt as to their being properly identified with the first generation, and probably are the pictures of PONTIUS STELLE, the grandson, and his wife, rather than the original immigrant and his wife, Eugene Legercau.

The Huguenots were the Protestants of France. They were devoted to the promulgation of the new faith not only as a belief and inspiration, but as the basis of all authority, civil and political, as well as sacerdotal and ecclesiastical. They were enthusiastic, and early planted their doctrines not only in the south of France, but in Orleans, Normandy, and Burgundy. The Walloons, or Belgic Gauls, eagerly received this faith, and Flanders became evangelized. The Protestant Church of Holland was, therefore, not Lutheran but Huguenot; and the great battle of religious liberty was fought and decided there. Flanders was restored to the Roman Church by the potent argument of the axe, fagot, and torture-chamber, but Holland established a new nation upon the basis of political freedom and the Protestant faith."
Note: The Monnet (Monet) Family of Staten Island, Richmond County, New York, headed by Pierre Monnet, 1681, originated as French Protestants in the Province of ancient Poitou, France, and were forced to flee the country to England, then to America. Branches of this Family scattered through New Jersey (see Monnet Family Genealogy by Orra Eugene Monnette, Los Angeles, Calif. 1911).
Huguenot Settlers and Land Owners in Monmouth County, New Jersey. (Vol. XX, p. 32.)
"Pontus, Poncet, or Pounsett Stelle, was licensed to keep a public inn in 1693 in Monmouth County, and his first name then given as "Pounsett." His son Gabriel bought lands near Manasquan in 1714; he was a "judge of the quorum" and quite prominent in public affairs. In 1729 he was settled at Perth Amboy. The will of Lydia Woolley, 1732, refers to his children. In 1728 he had a patent for a ferry from South Amboy to Staten Island.

PONCET DELAREE
It is doubtful if this is a separate patronymic, but consult STELLE, (vide, BIB., ante, PART THREE, p. 323; and PART FOUR, pp. 631-2).
The sole instance of the name written as in the title is in the long list of debtors and creditors of John Bowne, of Monmouth Co., 1714, (ARCH., Vol. XXIII, p. 53).
It has always been claimed that PONCET STELLE was Sieur des Lorieres, which simply meant Lord or Chief at the castle near Lorieres, France.

First Settlers of Ye Plantations of Piscataway and Woodsridge Olde East New Jersey part 5
ETOILE, as orig. of STELLE
This is a REAL discovery. The Fr. word for star is "toile," which in turn has its Latin form of STELLA, as any lex. will show. The first name, PONCET, was a French pre-appellative, in various families; but, as far back as 1200, the name, PONCET ETOILE, was of a reigning family in Savoy and ancient Burgundy. Sometimes, as L'ESTOILE. In fact, PIERRE L'ESTOILE was the author of the Memoirs of Henry of Navarre, the great Huguenot sympathizer. There is no difficulty in recognizing PONCET de Lorrieres from this source.
Further, LORD STELLE was a boon companion to Richard III, in Froissart's Chronicles

Page 868
STELLE, as TOILE
(Vide, ante, this PART, pp. 682 and infra.)
This seems now settled forever: PONCET STELLE was only another way for Anglicizing PONSET TOILE, (vide, PONCET DELAREE, supra, this PART).
PONCET STELLE, SIEUR des LORIERES

Much genealogy of this rather famous and distinguished Hugnenot Family is in print, from the pens of the compiler and Miss Maud Burr Morris, of Washington, D. C., who have collaborated for nearly 25 years on this pedigree, (vide, ante, BIB., PART THREE, p. 323), and various references and extensions herein. (Vide, ante, in BIB., PART ONE, p. 32; PART TWO, p. 225; PART THREE, p. 323 and pp. 439 and 440, and PART FOUR, pp. 631-2.)

Poncel was called Delauriere and De Lorier, Delaree and Delloryee. The deed to him for some N. Y. property called him Poncet Stelle De Laurier, (without any Sieur), and his sister Catherine de Lorier was godmother at the baptism of Isaac, but signed "Catherine Stelle," showing the names were interchangeable.

DELAURIERE. ??y a o??n plusieurs familles de ce nom en Gatine et a Loudin. Ce nom

Notes for Eugenia Le Gereau:

(vide, post, p. 427).
This was a place located not far from the ancient Castle--de Monnet, near the cities of AIN and POLIGNY, in the old French Province of LE FRANCHE COMTE of ancient Burgundy. (Also, called the County of Burgogne.) There the MONNETS, SIEURS DE SALINS, flourished as early as the Eleventh Century, (MONNET, p. 170).

On Staten Island the names appeared before 1700, in contiguity. Although the exact record is now escapable from the ken of the writer, PONCET STELLE, SIEUR DES LORIERES, (as all Stelle writings assert), was once on Staten Island, before 1693. His wife, EUGENIA LEGEREAU or LE GEREAU, etc., the same patronymic, must have been there contemporaneously with her possible kinsman, JEAN GERREAU.

As to the latter, an examination of the Staten Island Census of 1706 seems to cinch the whole argument. He is plainly entered as JOHN GERER, (GERERCY), (STILLWELL, Vol. 1, p. 155).

Adjoining the original land grant or patent to PIERRE MONNET, and his neighbor, ANTHONY TYCE, before 1685, (Vide, PART ONE, p. 123), appeared as a neighbor, JAMES LARGY, (sic), on the ocean or eastern side of Staten Island, south of MONEE'S POINT, as a contemporaneous patentee. This is easily a corrupted spelling of LE GERER or LE GERREAU, since the form LARGY appeared neither before nor afterward, as a long perpetuated surname.

Certain and definite, it is to be noted that one of the earliest French Huguenot settlers of Staten Island was JEAN GERREAU or JEAN GERER, i. e. JOHN GERER. (Vide, PART ONE, p. 121 and PART TWO, p. 144). This was before 1700. He was in East New Jersey in 1700 or so listed, (PART ONE, p. 67).

JEAN GERREAU d. in 1725-1726, and the settlement of his estate is quoted in exact language here; (N. Y. Hist. Soc. Coll., Vol. II, p. 355).
JEAN GERREAU (GERER) was listed thus in the Staten Island census of 1706;
"JOHN GERERY (GERECY?)," without any other similar name in the entire list. (STILLWELL, Vol. I, p. 155.)

As "JEAN GEROW," he was a witness to the Will of Mary van THIENHOVEN, of New York, dated June 3, 1715, with DAVID JAMISON. (N. Y. Hist. Soc., Coll., 1893, Wills, Vol. II, p. 150.) Again, the same as related to the Will of Benjamin Fanneuil of N. Y., dated, Sept. 6, 1710, as "JEAN GERREAU," (Idem, p. 186).
(idem, p. 355).
WILL--"In the name of God, Amen. I, JOHN GARREAU, of Richmond County, (Staten Island), merchant, being in good health. My will is that my dear beloved wife, MARY GARREAU, shall keep in full possession, and reap the benefit of all my estate, real and personal, as long as she remains my widow and no longer. I leave to my son, JOHN (GARREAU), after my wife's decease, all my estate, houses and lands, shop and goods, and I make him executor. Signed, JEAN GERREAU."

HISTORICAL AND GENEALOGICAL NOTES
CONCERNING THE SEVEN NOTABLES
TO WHOM THIS PART FIVE OF THIS
SERIES HAS BEEN DEDICATED
The STILLWELL, BRITTAIN, LARZALLIER, and MARLETT families, of the sons-in-law and kinsmen, were likewise his neighbors and settlers on Staten Island, before 1700. Naturally, the writer is intrigued by the surname, GERRIAGE as being only a form of GERREAU (vide, ante, PART THREE, p. 417). This was the maiden name of the 2nd wife of PIERRE BILLIOU, i.e. PERRIYE GERRIAGE, seemingly, but not far removed from EUGENIA LE GEREAU, wife of the first PONCET STELLE, SIEUR DE LORRIERES, (vide, ante, PART THREE, p. 439; and the "de" L' or "le" ARGY, neighbor of MONNET on Staten Island; vide, ante, PART ONE, p. 121)

Page 837
JAMES LARGY OF STATEN ISLAND
Much discussion concerning corruption of this name, (a) GERER or GERREAU; (b) PGERREAU; (c) LEGEREAU and (d) LEGARE. From this very family and locus may yet be found the key to the origin of and proof of that short residence on Staten Island of PONCET STELLE, SIEUR DES LORIERES, (STELLE, vide, ante, PART THREE, p. 439, and vide, post, this PART, p. indic.), and wife, EUGENIA LEGEREAU, whose surname is divisible acc. to Fr., and puzzling.
JAMES LARGY was the neighbor, 1686, of ANTONY TYSE, and of PIERRE MONNET, SR., 1681, on S. I., and had a patent for land adjoining in the Huguenot eastern shore, segment, and on the ROOT Map, (vide, ante, PART ONE, p. 123).
"LARGY, The name of JAMES LARGY appears on Root's Map, as receiving grant in 1686. The land included the present WOLFF POND. In the mortgage given by Governor THOMAS DONGAN to Robert Livingston in 1689, the estate "on the South Side conveyed by JAMES LARGIE (sic.) to THOMAS DONGAN" is mentioned. (S. I. HIST. & GEN., Vol. 1, p.917.)
Attention should be given to LARGE and other variants.
       
Children of Poncet Stelle and Eugenia Le Gereau are:
              i.       Benjamin Stelle, Rev., born Bet. 1682 - 1683 in New York; died January 22, 1759 in Piscataway, New Jersey; married (1) Mercy Hull 1708; married (2) Lydiah Shotwell August 04, 1752.

Notes for Benjamin Stelle, Rev.:
"Poncet Stelle moved to Monmouth Co. New Jersey, about 1693. About 1708-1709 his son, Benjamin married Mercy ....., and had, according to the Piscataway Register of Births, six children. She died Dec. 21, 1746. It is definitely stated in a brief biography of Benjamin Stelle by J. F. Brown, D.D. that she was Mercy Drake. An article by Oliver B. Leonard, in the same volume, occurs the following paragraph:

"Benjamin Stelle was born in New York, A.D. in 1683, and settled among the Piscataway people in early life just after colonial affairs were transferred to the Crown." But there was no Mercy Drake among the Piscataway people and tracing from the tombstone of Mercy, wife of Benjamin Stelle, it points to the fact that she was Mercy Hull, born about Jan. 22, 1683-4.

III. Gabriel, b. Feb. 2, 1685, in N. Y. d. "he departed this life, 25 Nov. 1738, aged 53 years and nine months."

ELIZABETH WOOLLEY, daughter of Edward Woolley, 3, born May 28,
1685; died July 29, 1723; married Gabriel, son of Poncet and Eugenie
(Legerau) Stelle, born 1685, and baptised in the early days of the
French Church in New York City. His parents were French Huguenots who
emigrated from the Southwestern part of France, about 1665, settling
first on Staten Island, from which they removed to New York. His oldest
brother, Benjamin Stelle, removed to Middlesex County, and settled at
Piscataway, while Gabriel came to Monmouth County, where he remained
until after the death of his first wife, and, about 1728, removed to
Middlesex County, where he received a patent for a ferry that should run
from South Amboy to Staten island, stopping at Perth Amboy.
Gabriel Stelle married, for his second wife, Margaret, daughter of
Thomas* and Janet (Mudie) Gordon,, and widow of Lewis Carr, and by her
had a son, Thomas Gordon Stelle, who was baptised, as shown on the
Records of Christ Church, Shrewsbury, Oct. 24, 1734, and a daughter,
Margaret Stelle, who married about 1755, Andrew Hamersly.
His first wife and two of their children are buried in Christ
Churchyard, the stones erected to their memory being placed in the yard
close against the building line of the Church as is also another stone,
to the memory of Elizabeth Stelle, which is in such condition that the
epitaph has been completely lost; it probably was that of the daughter,
Elizabeth who was baptised as an adult, at Allentown.

Issue
Edward Stelle born May 6, 1711; died Nov. 15, 1730.
Benjamin Stelle born 1716, died Nov. 14, 1719.
Elizabeth Stelle baptised, at Allentown, Jan. 26, 1734/5;
probably died unmarried.

*Thomas Gordon was one of the Lords Proprietors of East Jersey, and it
was largely from inheritance of his rights as such that the Hammersly
wealth has been so great.
