While doing some investigation of Peter Quintard for my maker's family tree, I came across an interesting will filed in New York in 1732. The principle was one Anthony Pintard, aged and infirm of body, late of Shrewsbury CT, now of New York who left considerable estate to his heirs. The witnesses to its filing and execution were Peter Quintard, John Waldron, Daniel Bonticou, and Phillip Cortland, all silversmiths, or directly related to silversmiths working in the city at the time. I have found no references to an Anthony Pintard as a maker, but given the fact that he was 'new' to the city, yet knew these men well enough to trust their testiment and that his daughter, Catherine, is mentioned as the wife of John Searle (also a witness and executor), whose family was also closely related to leading silversmiths of the city, indicates a close fellowship at least with the trade. Was he in fact a maker? A patron? A groupie? I would appreciate hearing from anyone with information on this gentleman of old New York.

In the transcription of the will that I have access to, where it normally gives an occupation or position, it just says gentleman. I do find reference to an Anthony Pintard from the correct era that is a merchant. And his son of the same name was a yeoman. An Anthony Pintard Halstead was a silversmith. Halstead was probably the senior Anthony's grandson and of course junior's nephew.

Peter Quintard was also the son-in-law of James Ballereau and was named executor of his estate on September 12, 1733 and this will was proved on November 8, 1733.

Peter Quintard, (Goldsmith) was also named executor of the estate of Richard Davis on
August 18, 1733 and this will was proved on November 28,1733.

Anthony Pintard married Katharina Staleboth of Neversink, East Jersey on May 14, 1692.

Here is a verbage of a letter from Elias Boudinot the son of the silversmith to a Lewis Pintard and they were related and you may be able to tie these two families together.

Philadelphia. Jan. 29, ., 1783.Boudinot was a prominent figure in Congress during the American Revolution. He signed the treaties of peace with Great Britain and of alliance with the French king following the war, helped ratify the Constitution in New Jersey, conducted Washington into New York for the first inauguration, served in the House of Representatives, and led the defense of Hamilton's conduct of the Treasury in 1793. He succeeded David Rittenhouse as director of the Mint in 1795, and retired in 1805 to study the Bible. Lewis Pintard, to whom Boudinot writes, was his brother-in-law. Pintard was a successful merchant and commissary of prisoners in New York during the American Revolution. After the Revolution he became commissioner for liquidating claims in New Jersey against the U.S. He was the chief importer of Madeira wines into the U.S. after the war. Boudinot writes: "I have nothing worth Communicating there being a total stagnation of all News.I have not had an Opportunity of seeing Dr. Rush but will strictly follow your directions as to the House, and will let you know by next Post - There are no shares in the Bank I believe to be bought, but a few Mr. Morris has to sell, which will not be exposed but for a given Time - If I can get Time, will send you a Cypher, if not, by another Opportunity - .Dr. Rush just sent me a Letter on the subject of the House which I enclose with some difficulty, as the Members of Congress have engaged not to enclose Letters to any Persons whatever I am in great Haste.Yours Afftly EB.
