AMERICAN ANCESTRY 



' I "HE purpose of this work is, principally, to register in a convenient and simple form 
J- the pedigree of any one person, and thus record for all time many important facts in 
the history of families which would otherwise be lost. Another primary object is to publish 
here the ancestry of a person as complete as it is known, as a means of obtaining additional 
information regarding it. It is also designed to be a convenient work of reference, to show 
the origin of the various American families. However indifferent some may affect to be 
regarding this question of ancestry, those who have a good pedigree will usually have a 
natural pride for it. Many lineages must of necessity contain nothing but simple records 
of uneventful generations, but they will preserve facts of great interest to descendants which 
would otherwise in many cases be lost in the history of a family. The plan of the work is 
somewhat similar in idea to the well-known English works, but altered to suit the conditions 
of American society, and in detail is as follows: 

The surname or family name is given first, with the given name, residence, birthplace, 
and date of birth. This is followed by remarks of a brief biographical character, giving the 
principal events in the individual's life, such as occupation, college degrees if any, author- 
ship, public service, experiences, and if married, date, wife's name and parentage, with 
remarks relating to her ancestry. If the individual whose lineage is given had brothers, 
the same facts may be stated respecting each of them, in order of their birth, commencing with 
the eldest. This completes the first generation in tracing back the lineage. Next is given 
the father's name, followed by same class of facts, and so continued back in male line as far 
as can be traced. The name of son, father, grandfather, etc., in direct male line are printed 
in black type. As the abbreviations are all of the most ordinary kind, it is unnecessary to 
mention them here.

Lloyd, fust elder of the French church at 
New Paltz, the record of which is still 
extant in his handwriting, the twelve paten- 
tees, or " Duzine," were the undisputed 
civil government centered at New Paltz for 
more than a century (m. Catherine Blancon 
or Blanshan, Oct. 10, 1655, at Mannheim 
in the Palatinate of the Rhine, German)'); 
son of Chretien, designated in the record 
of his son's marriage at Mannheim as the 
deceased Chretien du Bois, resident of 
Wicies, b. perhaps about 1600. Mons. C. 
DuBois Gregoire, U. S. Consul, says that 
Wicres has a population of 300, and that 
many farmers in the vicinity have pointed 
out to him the farm which the tradition of 
the country recognizes to have belonged to 
the DuBoises. The obliteration and de- 



struction of all Protestant family records in 
France, carried into effect by order of Louis 
XIV, who at the time of the du Bois ex- 
patriation was King of France, have ren- 
dered it impossible for the descendants of 
Huguenots to trace their family records in 
that country beyond the time of that mon- 
arch; and especially so, if they were in any 
way allied to a noble family and in a possi- 
ble line of succession to the estate. Not 
only were their lands and goods confiscated, 
but their very names were erased or torn 
out in baptismal and genealogical registers. 
Accordingly, the archivists have found the 
records of the canton of La B. issue, and in 
the village of Wicres, torn or cut or other- 
wise mutilated where the Christian names 
occurred. M. DuBois Gregoire shows that 
the Wicies register is mutilated at the spot 
of the Christian names of the eldest sons 
of Chretien du Bois, of whom our hist 
American ancestor was a son. The infer- 
ence is unmistakable. But in the eleventh 
century surnames were first assumed as 
distinctive marks of nobility. And all 
family surnames which can be traced prior 
to the thirteenth century are of noble 
origin. The name du Bois is of feudal 
origin and is one of the oldest if not 
the most ancient patronymic which has 
descended unchanged to this time. The 
authors of the " Maison Royale de 
France" speak of the family du Bois 
as "Grand Masters of the Forests of 
France." The records in the royal library 
of Paris trace lines of descent from Geoff- 
roi du Bois, a Knight banneret under 
William the Conqueror, and Anselme and 
Dufourney attribute a common origin to 
the families of du Bois and Pierrepont, in 
Macquaire du Bois, Count de Roussy in 
mo, whose ancestor built the Castle de 
Roussy in 948 and added this title to his 
patronymic. The Castle de Roussy was 
situated in Artois, where, some suppose, 
the name du Bois to have originated, 
although others trace its origin to Nor- 
mandy. It was evidently an old name in 
Neustria, before the time of Rollo. All 
authorities on historic genealogy concur in 
the belief that the ancient families of this 
surname have a common origin. There is

reason 10 believe that the Chr6tien afore- 
said was son, or near relative of Pierre, 
Seigneur of Fontaines Morau, whose son 
Louis was lieutenant-general of the armies 
.if the king; Pierre's father was Antoiiic, 
king's councillor and ambassador in the 
Pays Has, or Netherlands; son of Astrc- 
Dioilie, a Protestant, who afterward re- 
nounced his faith, and in 15S4 was restored 
10 his nobility and was declared to be 
descended by ancientry or dignity of birth, 
from "la maison du Hois en Artois;" son 
of Jean, king's councillor and controller- 
general of the finances (m. Oct. 17, 1403, 
the niece of the chancellor of France); son 
of Jean, Seigneur de Fontaines, maitic 
d'hotel of Charles VIII, d. 1507. This 
record appears under the head of du Bois 
de Givri and du Hois de Leuville and is 
continued down to 1761. Had Chretien 
renounced his faith as did Astremoine, we 
should doubtless have had the linking kept 
intact with this " Mouse of du Bois in 
Artois," as it is from this original stock 
(hat all collateral branches in Artois de- 
duce their origin; whether the original 
seat of the family was Artois or Normandy 
all ancient du Hois families who were 
entitled by nobiliary right to spell their 
name with a capital B have a common 
origin prior to the eleventh century. In 
feudal times the surname could not belong 
to two families without the addition of an 
agnomen, of which there are many exam- 
ples in France and Belgium.

was formerly supposed that there was no

Hewins. Agnes ArJen, the sister of 
Mary Arden, wife of John Shakespeare, 
the poet's father, married John Hewins of 
Bearley. There have also been Ilewinses 
at Weston-Sub-Edge, a village in the north- 
ern part of Gloucestershire, abt. 9^ miles
