Gabriel Minvielle was a prominent Huguenot who settled in New York after emigrating from France in 1673. He engaged in foreign trade, especially with the West Indies, and prospered as a merchant and trader and also politically, serving as the 15th Mayor of New York City from 1684 until 1685. Minvielle was later honored several times by appointment as a member of the Governor's Council.
Minvielle was integral in the creation of the Huguenot settlement of New Rochelle, New York in 1688.
