The only indication that may show them to be French Huguenots is that another of my ancestors, Vincent Runyon, came from Poitiers, in the Province of Ancienne Poitou, France. Vincent Runyon came some time before 1668 first to Elizabeth Town. He more than likely came with Gov. Philip Carteret with other French Huguenots. He later moved to Piscataway, NJ. Abraham Coriell's (1738) 4th child, Elsie, married 1.Philip Runyon. Her sister, Agnes, married my ggggrandfather, Wm. Irvin.
There is much information in a book " The First Settlers of Piscataway, and Woodbridge"
Most of the Huguenots, for at least the first couple of generations, settled in the same area and married into the same families they came to America with.
I know this doesn't give you any documentation but it may lead you in the direction you are seeking.
