was of French descent, his ancestors having emigrated from France to this country [USA] during the persecutions of the Huguenots. The Martiens first settled in North Carolina, but some of them afterwards moved to Philadelphia, Pa.
Numerous other Martien families in the USA have Huguenot ancestors with Philadelphia connections, indicating that they are related. This page is intended for sharing information and contacts regarding the Martien families of the USA who may be related to the Martien family of Philadelphia, PA 1700-1800.
The main lines are:
Baltimore Martien family - William Martien born abt 1783 in Philadelphia. This family knew of and visited the Philadelphia Martiens.
New York/Missouri Martien family - Medan Martien, born about 1785 in Philadelphia. Medan shared the very rare forename with one of William and Sarah's sons "Medan Martin/Medam Martin".
Philadelphia Martien family - William Martin, born about 1760 in Philadelphia. William and his wife Elizabeth had a daughter Sarah Fox Martien, who is likely a descendent of Sarah Fox. When William died, his wife Elizabeth married Mibsam Martien (born about 1765), who also shares a very rare forename with one of William (I) and Sarah's children "Mibsam Martin". William and Elizabeth's youngest son was William Stockton Martien.
Philadelphia Martien family (II) - James Martien, born 1804 in Philadelphia. His families grave plot lies next to the plot of William Stockton Martien's family in Philadelphia. Thus James is likely to be either a half-brother or cousin of William Stockton Martien (see first Philadelphia family).
Ohio Martien family - Gilbert Martien b. abt 1800 lived in East Pennsylvania in 1850. Apart from similaties in forenames there is no other direct evidence of this family sharing similar origins.
Baltimore Martien family (II) - Joseph Martien born abt 1825. This family was known to above mentioned Baltimore family, but no evidence of direct connections is available.
We do not have direct evidence of who the parents any of these people are, but the notes point to connections between them. Perhaps further research will reveal the true nature (if any) of their inter-relationships.
