In Reply to: Re: Ila Burpo by Patricia Chitty of 14

My line is from Eli de Bonrepos of New Rochelle, N.Y. I understand that many descendants of Eli(e) or his brother David de Bonrepos are believed to have begun spelling the name Burpo.

A researcher gave me the following information. Corrections/additions would be welcome.

One reference says: "Rev. David (born about 1654) and his brother Eli (Elias) (born about 1652/56) de Bonrepos apparently left Dalphine, France, settled on St Christophers Island for a short time then they arrived in Boston, MA, USA 1686."

Another says: Elie de Bonrepos journeyed first to Holland (interestingly, he owned land in Flushing, Holland); thence to St Christopher, West Indies; thence to Boston and Salem; later to New Pfalz (on the Hudson River); finally, was a schoolmaster at New Rochelle, NY.

Elie's son Alexandre was indentured, 1703, to John David of New York City, a sailmaker, for 6 years and 4 months from 5 Sept 1701, and as of 11 June 1723 was a freeman at New York City.

Elie's brother David was first at St Christopher, then removed to Boston, 1686, to New Rochelle, 1688, and thence to New York City where he became a freeman, 14 Aug 1695; was a resident of Staten Island by 1696, then removed to New Pfalz, Ulster Co, 1700-1702; lived in New York City, 1706-09, and died at Staten Island, his will dated New York City, 16 May 1734; m(1) Blanche du Bois; m(2) the widow Martha (Billiou) Stillwell.

Genouillac, "Dictionnaire des Fiefs," p 56, notes the following:

The name Bonrepos is also noted in D'Hozier, "Etat Présent de la Noblesse Française," p 1499:
