INHABITANTS OF KING WILLIAM PARISH, IN MANACANTOWN, VIRGINIA, TO MR.
NEARNE.

[Extract.]


4TH JULY, 1728.


Rev'd Sir:
Your near departure out of this country obliges us, the Church Wardens and Vestries
of King William's Parish, with humble supmission, to beg your Assistance when,
please God, you are arrived in London. We are very sorry that we can no longer enjoy
the pleasure of your good presence and Education.


We thought ourselves happy in our late settlement with your Reverence.


We had above 110 or 120 tithables, but at present our number is 130. You see,
therefore, the impossibility for us to raise a sum sufficient to keep our own Minister,
and since we are conformed to the Laws and Disciplines of the Church of England,
and that our Parish is a Royal Gift to us French Refugees, we think we ought not to
consent to be dissolved and incorporated into another Parish.


Many of our Parishioners understand no English; but for the sake of our Children
and the English Families settled amongst us, we should be heartily Glad to have the
Common Prayers and Sermons in English as well as French.

r An early tutor of Thomas Jefferson.
s John and Paul Bertrand, brothers, fled from France during the persecutions of
Louis XIV; came over to England, and from thence to America. They were both clerks
in the Church of England. John Bertrand, the eldest, settled in Rappahannock
county, Virginia, having married in London, 29th September, 1686, Charlotte Jolié,
the daughter of a French nobleman, with whom he had escaped from France. John
Bertrand left issue two children. William, the elder, who died in 1760, left issue an
onlv daughter, Mary Anne, the wife of Leroy Griffin, of Rappahannock county. They
were the parents of Thomas Bertrand, Dr. Corbin, Cyrus and William Griffin. [There
was a daughter, also, Elizabeth, who married Colonel Richard Adams, the elder, of
Rich- mond, Virginia.]
"Paul Bertrand settled in Calvert county, Maryland, on a farm purchased by him
called 'Cox Hayes,' west of Patuxent river. He died soon after his marriage, leaving a
widow and one son Paul. They went to London, where the son married Mary,
daughter of one Dearling, a verv eminent Toynian of London; settled at Bath, and
died without issue about 1755. This widow was alive in 1766."
The tradition in the Griffin family is, that it is of Welsh extraction. There are grants of
1,155 and 1,046 acres of land to Samuel Griffin, in Rappahannock county, in 1660,
and of 1,000 acres to William Griffin, in Northampton county, in 1662, of record in
the Virginia Land Registry.
As the names Samuel and William have been transmitted by the descendants of
Leroy Griffin for generations, it may be presumed that one of the brothers, grantees
of land as named, was his ancestor.
His son, Cyrus, born 1749, was educated in England. Returning to Virginia, he

became a member of the Legislature, delegate to the Continental Collgress-1778,
1781, and in 1787, 1788-and was its President in 1788; President of the Supreme
Court of Admiralty; a Commissioner, in 1789, to the Creek Nation of Indians; Judge
of the United States District Court for Virginia from 1789 till his death at Yorktown,
Virginia, 14th December, 1840. He married Lady Christine Stuart, daughter of John,
sixth Earl of Traquar, Baron Stuart of Traquar, Baron Linton and Cubarston in the
peerage of Scotland. Mary, the daughter of Judge Cyrus and Lady Christhie (Stuart)
Griffin, married her cousin, Dr. Samuel Stuart Griffin. Their son, Dr. James Lewis
Corbin Griffin, who died 22d October, 1878, ill his 64th year, at "Lansdowne,"
Gloucester county, claimed to be the rightful representative of the Barony of Traquar,

Robert C. Winthrop. A son, James Bowdoin, was the friend and compatriot of
Washington and Franklin. Another son, John Bowdoin, removed to the Eastern
shore of Virginia about 1700. His granddaughter was the wife of Professor George
Tucker, of the University of Virginia. Pierre Bowdoin was a Burgess from
Northumberland county in 1736, and John Bowdoin, in 1774 and 1775; died 1775.
Preeson Bowdoin was a member of the Phi-Beta-Kappa Society of William and Mary

apprised the fugitive Legislature, then sitting at Charlottesville, Virginia, of the
approach of the British under Tarleton, and thus prevented their capture. The service
was acknowledged by a resolution of thanks, passed June 12, 1781, and the
presentation of an elegant sword and a pair of pistols. Captain Matthew Jouett, of the
State Line in the Revolution, fell in the service, and his representative received 4,000
acres of bounty land. A son of Captain Jack Jouett, the late Matthew Jouett, of
Louisyille, Kentucky, is said to have rivalled in ability Gilbert Stuart as a portrait

2. Colonel William Byrd, the first of his name and family in Virginia, son of John and
Grace (Stegge or Stagg) Byrd, London, (of the family of Brexton, Cheshire, England),
was born in 1652, and came to Virginia, a youth, as the legatee of his uncle, Captain
Thomas Stegge, merchant, landed proprietor and member of the Council. Colonel
Byrd patented large tracts of land including the site of the city of Richmond; was a
man of enterpflse and influence; married Mary, daughter of Colonel Warham
Horsemanden, of "Purley, in Essex, England;" member of the Virginia Council;
Receiver General of the Colony by appointment from December 24, 1687 until his
death December 4, 1704, when he was succeeded by his son William (the more
distinguished of the family), born at "Westover," the family seat, March 10th, 1674;
died August 26, 1744, and was buried there. The last was educated in England;
"called to the bar in the Middle Temple, studied for some time in the Low Countries,
visited the Court of France, and was chosen Fellow of the Royal Society, * * was
thrice appointed public agent to the court and ministry of England, and being thirtyseven
years a member, at last became President of the Council." His genius is
embalmed in our national literature as the author of the Westover Manuscripts,
which contain with other papers, the "History of the Dividing Line between Virginia
and North Carolina as run in 1728-29;" Colonel Byrd being one of the Commissioners
on the part of Virginia. He was the founder of Richmond, Virginia which was laid off
by Major William Mayo in April, 1737. He too, like his father, was much interested in
the settlement of Virginia by the immigration of European Protestants. Drafts of
letters of his written during the period 1735-1740, preserved at the hospitable seat,
"Lower Brandon," James River (copies of which are in the possession of the editor)
establish his frequent earnest efforts to secure the emigration of Swiss and German
settlers, to whom he offered land, both in Virginia and North Carolina, on favorable
terms. He was deeply interested in the development of the mineral resources of
Virginia, and planted an extensive vineyard in 1735. He married twice. First, Lucy,
daughter of Colonel Daniel Parke, Governor of the Leeward Islands; secondly, May 9,
1724, "Mrs. Maria Taylor, eldest daughter and coheiress of Thomas Taylor, of
Kensington, England," born November 10th, 1698; died August 25, 1771.
William, the eldest son by the second marriage, born September 6th, 1728; died
January I, 1777. was a member of the Virginia Council; and in 1756 served as Colonel
of the Second Virginia regiment in the French and Indian war. He was married twicefirst,
April 10, 1748, to Elizabeth (born October 13, 1731; died July 4, 1760), daughter
of John Carter, of "Shirley," James River; secondly, January 29, 1761, to Mary,
daughter of Charles and Anne (daughter of Joseph Shippen) Willing, of Philadelphia,
Pa., who survived him. Charles Willing was the son of Thomas and Anne Willing, of
Bristol, England.
3. These records, relating to the emigration to Virginia in 1700 of the Huguenot
refugees, have been kindly furnished by G. D. Scull, Esq., 'Oxford, England, who
writes that they "were copied from a vellum-bound volume of manuscripts endorsed

'Original Papers relating to the French Plantation in, the West Indies,' and found in
the Bodleian Library. They are undoubtedly the original documents emanating from
the Provincial Government of Virginia under Francis Nicholson, as they have the
onicial signature of Dionisius Wright, who, it would appear, was the Secretary to the
Council. When the emigration of the French was completed and the necessary papers
connected with it collected, they were no doubt sent over to England for the
inspection of Dr. Daniel Coxe, who had been the principal promoter of the enterprise.
He was one of the Court Physicians to Queen Anne. and also in the preceding reign,
and had some influence with royalty in directing the exodus of the French towards
Virginia, where he had large grants of territory. He was a zealous churc'hman and a
supporter of Christian missions, and sought to promote the spiritual and temporal
welfare of the Huguenot refugees at the same time that he colonized his own lands.
At his death his manuscripts were dispersed, and, some of them fell into the hands of
Rawlinson, the ardent and indefatigable collector, and were by him bequeathed to
the Bodleian Library." Dr. Coxe was the author of Discourses and Papers in
Philosophical Transactions, 1674; Alkaline Seeds; Sea Sand; Volatile Salt from
Vegetables. His son, Daniel Coxe, resided in America fourteen years. He claimed the
territorv originally comprised in Georgia, Florida, and Louisiana under the purchase
of his father from the Earl of Arundel of the grant conveyed to the latter, which had
been made by Charles I in the beginning of his reign to Sir Robert Heath, then
Attorney General. He prepared: "A Description of the English Province of Carolana,
by the Spaniards call'd Florida, and the French La Louisane; as also of the Great and
Famous River Mischacebe or Mississippi; The Five Vast Navigable Lakes of Fresh
Water, and the Parts Adjacent: Together with an Account of the Commodities, of the
Growth and Production of the said Province; And a Preface containing some
Considerations on the Consequences of the French making Settlements there, by
Daniel Coxe, Esq. (Non minor est virtus quam qualrere partu tueri.) [8vo., with
folding map of 'Carolana and the River Mischacebe.'] London: Printed for Edward
Symon, againsr the Royal Exchange in Cornhill, 1727." It was republished in 1741.
Allihone,(Dict. of Authors,) says that there was an edition of 1722, but that of 1727
presents no evidence of any other having preceded it.

8. An interesting "Memorandum" (from a copy of the original kindly furnished by
Hon. L. C. Draper, LL.D., Madison, Wisconsin,) of the escape of Anthony Trabue, and
of the settlement at Manakin-town, prepared by his graindson, Daniel Trabue, son of
John James and Olymphia (Dupuy) Trabue, was published by the present writer in
the Richmond Standard, May 10-17, 1879. Daniel Trabue writes: "My grandfather,
Anthony Trabue, fled from France in the year of our Lord, 1687, at the time of a
bloody persecution against the dissenters by the Roman Catholics. The law against
the dissenters was very rigid at that time. Whoever was known to be one, or even
suspected, if he would not swear to visit the priest, his life and estate were forfeited,
and [he was] put to the most shameful and cruel torture and death. And worse than
all, they would not let any move from the kingdom. Guards and troops were stationed
all over the kingdom to stop and catch any that might run away. At every place where
they would expect those persons might pass, there were guards fixed and companies
of inquisitors, and patrols going on every road, and every other place; hunting for
those heretics, as they called them; and where there was one who made his escape,
perhaps there were hundreds put to the most shameful torture and death. * * When

the decree was first passed, a number of the people thought it would not be put in
execution so very hastily; but the priests, friars and inquisitors were very intent for
their estates, and they rushed quick. * * I understand that my grandfather, Anthony
Trabue, had an estate, but concluded he would leave it if he could possibly make his
escape. He was a very young man, and he and another young man took a cart and
loaded it with wine, and went on to sell it to the farthermost guard; and when night
came they left their horses and cart, and made their escape to an English ship, which
took them on board, and they went over to England, leaving their estates, native
country, relations, and everything for the sake of Jesus who died for them."
Mr. A. E. Trabue, Hannibal, Missouri, is in possession of the original certificate on
vellum given his ancestor by the ministers and civil officers of Lausanne. He
communicates the following extract: " We commend him to the care of Divine
Providence, and to a cordial reception from our Brethren. Done at Lausanne this 15th
day of the seventh month, A. D. 1687."
Anthony Trabue died in Manakin-town, Virginia, January, 1724, aged 56 or 57 years,
leaving three sons: Anthony, Jacob and John James Trabue, who married Olymphia,
daughter of John James and Susanna (Lavillon) Dupuy. Their issue, as given in the
"Memorandum" of Daniel Trabue, differs somewhat in order and name from the
Dupuy "trees." He gives: James, John, William, Daniel, Edward, Stephen, Samuel,
Magdalene, Phoebe, Jane, Mary, Martha, Eliza, Judith, Susan.


9. His descendants in several generations followed the calling of Land Surveyor. They
embrace many highly respected names, including that of Dibrell, formerly Du Breuil.
Peter Le Grand was the Burgess from Prince Edward county, 1758-1765.
10. Bonaventure Chauvin Seigneur de la Muce Ponthus, whose seat was near the city
of Nantes, in Southern Bretagne, was one of the first to embrace the new faith in the
early days of the French Reformation. He became its most earnest supporter,
"consumed with zeal for the cause of religion," and his descendants inherited the
same devotion. His three sons fought in the Huguenot armies under Henry IV, and
his grandson, David, Marquis de Ia Muce, presided over the political assembly of the
Protestants held in La Rochelle in the year 1621. For his attendance upon that
assembly, contrary to the King's commands, he was condemned to be drawn and
quartered, a sentence which was executed upon him in effigy, whilst his beautiful
castle was actually demolished and razed to the ground. Caesar, his son, and Olivier,
his grandson, were elders in the Reformed Church of Nantes. Under the provisions of
the Edict of Nantes the Seigneurs de la Muce claimed the right of holding religious
services in their own house, and besides supporting this worship they contributed
generously to the funds of the "temple" in the adjoining village of Sucé. Soon after the
Revocation Olivier de la Muce fled from his home and was arrested on the island of
Ré, while waiting for an opportunity to make his escape to England. Imprisoned for
two years, first in La Rochelle, and afterwards in the Castle of Nantes, he resisted
every effort to persuade him to deny his faith. At length an order was given for the
expulsion of the Marquis de la Muce from the kingdom as an obstinate heretic.
Accordingly, he was placed on board a foreign ship, the captain of which received
orders to land him in England, but carefully to conceal from him the fact that he was
about to be set free.
Twelve years later, he headed the expedition to Virginia and became the founder of
the Manakin-town settlement. He was a man of recognized excellence of character.

13. A fugitive from Royan in 1684.

14. Joseph Bernard, fugitive from Ré in 1685. Baird, I, 308.
15. Captain Giles Webb, who died June, 1713. He married the widow of Henry
Randolph, Jr., Clerk of Henrico county. In his will, which is of record in Henrico
county, he mentions a brother, Thomas, and his step-son, Henry Randolph. The
name Webb has been prominent in the annals of Virginia. John Webb was a patentee
of land in 1624. Stephen Webb was a Burgess from James City county in October,
1644 Giles Webb was commander of a body of rangers in Henrico county in October,
1692. Calendar of State Papers of Virginia, I, 43. George Webb was elected,
December 17, 1776, by the Virgima Assembly, Treasurer of Virginia, to succeed
Robert Carter Nicholas, resigned.
16. Rev. Lewis Latané was rector of South Farnham parish, Essex county, from 1700
until his death, which is mentioned by Commissary Blair in a letter to the Bishop of
London, dated March 24, 1734 [1735]. Perry's Virginia Church Papers, 257. He was
the joint patentee with Bartholomew Yates, Christopher and John Robinson,
Jeremiah Clowder, Harry Beverley, William Stanard and Edwin Thacker of 24,000
acres of land on the south side of the Rapid Anne in Spotsylvania county, July 20,
1722. Virginia Land Registry, Book No. ii, page 147. Rev. Lewis Latane was twice
married before he came to Virginia, and afterwards married, thirdly, Mary Deane,
(died 1732) by whom he had issue five daughters and one son, William, who married
Ann Waring, of Essex county, and had issue: i. Lucy married Payne Waring; ii.
Henry, born 1777; married _____ iii. Daughter, married John Temple, and others. A
descendant of Rev. Lewis Latané, the gallant Captain Latané, fell near Old Church,
Hanover county, Virginia, on the second of the famed four days' raid of General J. E.
B. Stuart, Confederate States Cavalry (June 12-15, 1862), around the lines of General
George B. McClellan, and found romantic burial at the hands of Virginia ladies,
assisted by their servants. He was buried at "Summer Hill," the seat of Captain
Willoughby Newton, Confederate States Army (who also, a little later, sealed with his
life his devotion to his country), near Hanover Town, Virginia, the burial service of
the Episcopal Church, being read by the venerable mother of Captain Newton. The
scene was perpetuated on canvass by Washington, a Virginia artist, and the
engraving from the painting is a favored decoration in Virginia households. Another
descendant is Rev. James A. Latané, Bishop of the Reformed Episcopal Church of the
United States.
17. "Jacob Pierre et Matthieu Ammonet, chefs de famille a Loudun, 1634," (La
France Protestante, s. v.) Baird, II, 51.
18. Deneale, a well-known Fairfax county, Virginia, name, is probably a corruption of
Deneille.
19. Baird, II, 41, states that Jean Thomas settled in South Carolina, and gives from
Liste des Francois et Suisses Refugiez in Caroline this extract: Jean Thomas, né à St.
Jean d' Angely in Saintonge, fils de Jean Thomas et d'Anne Dopon.
20. The name is now rendered Maupin in Virginia. An estimable representative was
the late Socrates Maupin, Professor of Chemistry in the University of Virginia (1853-
1871), and chairman of its faculty (1854-1868); killed by a fall from his horse October
29, 1871. Daniel Maupin, doubtless a son of the refugee, was granted 1,188 acres of
land in Albemarle county September 20, 1745. (Virginia Land Registry, Book No.31,
page 652.) Gabriel Maupin was keeper of the public magazine at Williamsburg in
1791.
21. Probably from Rouen. See Baird, II, 74.
22. Probably from St. Sévère, in the Province of Berré. See Baird, II,105.
23. A descendant was Major William Duval, of the Revolutionary War, and
supsequently a prominent member of the Richmond (Virginia) bar. His son, William
Pope Duval, born 1784, lawyer and statesman, served as Captain of the Mounted

Rangers in the war of 1812; member of Congress, 1812-15; Governor of Florida
Territory, 1822-34; died at Washington, D. C., March 39, 3854. He was the original of
"Ralph Ringwood," of Washington Irving, and "Nimrod Wildfire," of J. K. Paulding.
24. "La Veure des Sr. Lorange, paroisse St. Sauvier, La Rochelle, fled to England in
1682, leaving 'quelque bien en Poitou,'" (Arch. Nat.) Baird, I, 296. The name is also
rendered L'Orange.
25. Baird, II, 71, states that "Daniel Du Chemin (born at Caen, in Normandy) was
naturalized in New York, September 27, 1687, with his son, Daniel, and his daughter,
Catharine, born at the Isle of St. Christopps. * * * The name does not reappear until
eighty years later when another Daniel Duchemin obtains a marriage license in the
city of New York, July 7, 1767, and receives letters of naturalization May 20, 1769.
26. Probably from St. Nazaire, in Saintonge, (see Baird, II, 16). The name is now
rendered Guerrant in Virginia. John Guerrant was a member of the Virginia
Convention of 1788, and the name has been often prominently represented in
Virginia.
27. Probably of Orsemont. See Baird, II, 97.
28. Now rendered in Virginia Fourqurean.
29. The name Pasteur is now invested with world-wide special interest through the
recent scientific discoveries of the eminent French chemist in alleviation of the dread
malady, hydrophobia. A curiosity as to his descent may be pardonable. It may be that
he springs from the same conscientious strain as the refugee of the text. Rev. James
Pasteur appears as "lecturer" for Norfolk parish, Norfolk county, in 1754.- (Peny's
Church Papers of Virginia, page 413.) William Pasteur, a descendant in the second
generation, probably of the refugee, was, in 1752, an apprentice with Dr. George
Gilmer (surgeon, physician and apothecary in Williamsburg, Virginia, and the
ancestor of the distinguished Virginia family of the name), and served as a surgeon in
the Virginia line during the Revolutionary war.
30. Falling Creek flows into James river on the south side, about seven miles below
the city of Manchester, and twenty below the site of Manakin-town settlement. Upon
this creek, in 1619, was erected the first iron-furnace in America, the operations of
which were suspended by the Indian massacre of March 22, 1622. Colonel William
Byrd obtained, April 20, 1687, a grant of 1,800 acres, within the limits of which was
incloded the site of the ill fated iron-works. October 29, 1696, he obtained a grant of
5,644 acres lying contiguous thereto, giving as a reason therefor, in a note prefixed to
a record of his landed possessions, that there having been iron-works on Falling
Creek in the time of the Company. and Colonel Byrd having an intention to carry
them on, and foreseeing that abundance of wood might be necessary for so great a
work, he took up a large tract," &c. It is not known that either he or his son ever
revived the iron-works. A grist mill now owned by Mr. H. Carrington Watkins,
located opposite to the Site of the iron-works of 1619, in all probability occopies the
site of the mill of William Byrd referred to in the text. The Falling Creek tract was
purchased by Colonel Archibald Cary some time prior to the Revolutionary war.
Upon it he erected his well-known seat, the name of which became in the records of
the period part and parcel of his personal designation as Archibald Cary, of
Ampthill." He erected new iron-works on Falling Creek, but abandoned his forge, and
converted his pond to the use of a grist-mill about 1760. The editor visited Ampthill
and Falling Creek in May 1876, and definitely identified, through bits of cinder
remaining, the sites of both the iron works of 1619 and of 1760.
31. Governor Nicholson.
32. Rev. James Blair, D. D., born in Scotland, 1660, died at Williamsburg, Virginia,

33. Benjamin Harrison was clerk of Virginia Council in 1630. The name appears as a
patentee of lands in "Warrosquoracke," and James City colinties, 1635-43. Benjamin
Harnson--doubtless him of the text was assistant revisor of the laws of the Colony,
1700; Speaker of the House of Burgesses and Treasurer in 1706. He appears to have
died in 1710, as Peter Beverley was elected Speaker and Treasurer in October, 1710.
and at the same session of the Burgesses, Elizabeth, widow and administratrix of
Benjamin Harrison, the younger, of Charles City county. gentleman, deceased, was
empowered to sell land and slaves for the payment of his debts. Hening's Statutes of

James Blair, as the only survivors of the original trustees, February 27, 1729,
transferred the corporate rights invested in them to the faculty of the College.
38. He was the second of the name in Virginia and son of Major Lewis Burwell, of the
family of Bedford and Northamton-shire, England, who settled on Carter's Creek, in
Gloucester county, Virginia, in 1640, and married Lucy, daughter of Captain Robert

39. Captain Francis Eppes, grandson of Colonel Francis Eppes, County Lieutenant,
who settled at City Point, Prince George county, Virginia, (then forming a portion of

given in Slaughter's History of Bristol Parish, pages 172-3.
40. Lawson, the Survevor-General and historian of North Carolina, ascribes the
discovery of the coal to a Huguenot settler at Manakin-Town, "who having shot a
fowl, which fell into the river near where the bank was precipitous, went down to the
assistance of his dog, who, going for the fowl, had difficulty in regaining the summit
of the bank. The Frenchman, in his efforts to climb back, dislocated some earth at the
foot of a shrub of which he had taken hold, and revealed the out-cropping coal.
Making known his discovery, the land was surveyed and patented by one of the
gentry." The patentee appears to have been William Byrd, who understanding that
there was a coal mine upon some land lying near Monacan town, which had not been
granted to the French, took out a patent for 344 acres, including the same, which
patent was dated October 20, 1704."

1651. He settled in that portion of Stafford which now comprises King George county,
calling his seat "Bedford." He married, May I, 1674, Mary Tucker. He was the counsel
for Major Robert Beverley (the father of the historian) in the trial of the latter for
"plant-cutting" and other misdemeanors, in 1682. A MS. copy of his letters, written
during the period May 15, 1679-April 26, 1699, is among the MS. collections of the
Virginia Historical Society.
43. The full name of the minister thus modestly designated was Claude Phillipe de
Richebourg. He was a relative of Isaac Porcher de Richebourg, the ancestor of a
prominent Huguenot family of South Carolina, both being descended from the
Counts of Richebourg, of St. Severe. Owing to disputes in his parish, which were
referred to the Council of Virginia, September 2, 1707, M. Phillippe, with numerous
followers, left Virginia soon after this date and settled in the Carolinas.

82. This is a translation of the original register in the French language, which is in
the possession of the editor. It covers about twenty-five pages of foolscap paper. The
barbarous orthography used involves, in many instances, it will be observed, almost a
denationalization and mystification of surnames. Many of them are, however,
palpably English, the result of intermarriage with the neighboring colonists.
