Just an idea on these different spellings...figured I would throw in my 2cents worth, since I find it all so interesting!
But in researching another line I ran across the following:
. "Jacques Panetier, fugitif de Soubise," (Arch. Nat.), John Pantrier, naturalized in England, March 8, 1682. Baird, II, 18.
taken from; Baird's Huguenot Emigration to America, Vol. II, [which I only have notes from....wish I had the whole thing]
I noticed they spelled his names two different ways...this was their doing, not mine.
This concerned settlers coming to Virginia around 1700 to the Manakin area, which is area of present day Richmond.
So far this is the only mention I have come across of him in this article, but I thought how close the sound is to the Painter, Poynter, etc. name.
I am researching the name in connection to the Bowman family of Va/NC/TN/KY/
Just a thought.....Ruth Langwell Walker
