To the many thousand descendants oi 

Bartholomew Dupuy, 
Scattered throughout the United States, 


Especially to my beloved children, 


Children s children, 


Volume is affectionately dedicated 
By their relative. 


The author has long contemplated the publica- 
tion of such a volume as this. The main reason, 
which has induced him to do so, has been the long 
and wide felt desire of the descendants of Bartholo- 
mew Dupuy for such a volume, that the data rela- 
tive to the whole subject, and the lines of descent 
from him might be collated, preserved, and handed 
down to rising generations, before time had ground 
them into dust and all tradition been buried in the 
grave of oblivion. The work has been in contem- 
plation and partial preparation for more than a 
quarter of a century, but it has been only of recent 
years that it was undertaken with the determina- 
tion to effect its completion. 

The preparation has been attended with much 
tedious labor and persevering energy, as well as 
the exercise of great patience, of which no one 
knows anything save him who has undertaken or 
assisted in such a task. In these times, when peo- 
ple are driving heedlessly ahead, if not to hoard up 
riches, at least to become independent, often in dis- 
regard of obligations to their fellow men, many of 
the descendants take little or no interest in their 
ancestry; and whether they knew anything of im- 
portance on the subject or not, they would not an- 
swer letters, and furnish that data necessary to 
make a volume like this valuable to generations 
unborn. Hence the author is conscious of the in- 
completeness and imperfections of the work arising 
from such indifference, but hopes the book may 


prove a basis in years to come of greater complete- 
ness and perfection. As far as it goes, the volume 
is quite reliable, having been founded upon well 
authenticated statements and facts; the author 
trying to avoid drawing on his imagination, which 
in some instances might have been excusable, and 
might have added interest to the volume, if not real 

The book is unique in its make-up. It is neither 
strictly biography nor history. While partaking 
of those kinds of literature, such a work from its 
title must strike a mean betwixt the two. To 
strictly develop either line to its usual limits would 
make the work unreasonably voluminous and 
bunglesome. The object has been to sketch the life 
of an honorable ancestor as far as known, and to 
preserve the lines of descent from him, and thereby 
show that his posterity, instead of defaming his 
name, have in the main and to a wonderful degree 
appreciated and honored it from generation to gen- 
eration. To do this history and biography have 
been concisely, but we hope sufficiently blended for 
the purpose. 

It has seemed specially necessary to the author 
that such a book should contain, as an Introduction, 
a brief account of the Rise and Progress of the 
Huguenots in France to the time of the appearance 
of Bartholomew Dupuy in history. This is neces- 
sary as a beneficial effect upon his living descend- 
ants, by way of enhancing their appreciation of the 
causes which gave rise to the Huguenots, as well 
as a due appreciation of their valor, character, and 
sincere religious belief. Until one knows the foun- 
dation upon which his family is built, it is not 
likely that he will appreciate the fact of its having 


a foundation at all. But when he knows, as it 
were, the cause of which he is an effect, the source 
whence he has come, the trials and hardships of hia 
ancestors, which made them what they were, and 
whose nature, blood, and principles he himself has 
inherited; and when it is shown him that for two 
centuries these elements and principles have clung 
to the descendants and have operated to make them 
honorable and successful also, then he will think 
there is something in them, and will more likely 
appreciate, and live by them, and teach his poster- 
ity the same. We urge, therefore, the close and 
patient perusal of the Introduction, as the founda- 
tion of due appreciation of the book. If any per- 
manent good is to come to the descendants and 
their posterity from its publication, it will be de- 
rived mostly from grasping the principles, which 
brought out the facts stated in the Introduction, 
requiring the exercise of such valor, patience, and 
faithfulness to religious belief. Indeed, the Intro- 
duction and last chapter stand to each other as 
cause and effect. Without the principles under- 
lying the former, the statements of the latter could 
not have been predicated. 

The facts of the Introduction have been as con- 
cisely stated as it were possible to do, and conserve 
interesting and historical reading. They have been 
drawn mainly from the "Encyclopedia Britannica," 
the "Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia," the "McClin- 
tock and Strong's Cyclopedia," "Daubigne's 
History of The Reformation," "The Huguenots of 
the Reformed French Church," by William Henry 
Foote, D. D., and "The Huguenot Emigration to 
America," by Charles W. Baird, D. D., etc. 

As the reader goes through the book, he will

likely be impressed with the painstaking labor, the 
amount of research, and the voluminous corre- 
Bpondence necessary for compiling such a work. 

With expressions of regret that his ministerial 
labors and his meagre means have prevented travel 
to sections of country where he might have ran- 
sacked old and musty records in state offices, where 
he feels sure other reliable data might be found, the 
author wishes to record his heartfelt appreciation 
of the assistance, which has been rendered him by 
many lineal descendants, and also by those con- 
nected with them, in the preparation of the book; 
and also to express the hope, that as time reveals 
other official and original documents, the whole 
matter of lineage will be taken up by some one, who 
shall succeed more fully, 

"To draw forth a noble ancestry, 
From the corruption of abusing time, 
Unto a lineal, true-derived course." 

Beverly, W. Va., Sept. 12, 1906.

Origin of the Term " Huguenot. 

The term ''Huguenot'^ was originally a introd. 
designation given about the middle of the six- 
teenth century to the Reformed or Calvinist, 
of France. The origin of the word is involved 
in great obscurity. 

Prof. Mahn, the distinguished German phi- 
lologist, of Berlin, has given no less than 
fifteen explanations of its supposed derivation. 
The three most plausible need only be men- 
tioned. It has been derived from a faulty pro- 
nunciation of the German Eidgenossen (' ' con- 
federates^'), who were called Eignots^ a term 
apiDlied to the patriotic party of Geneva, who First 
maintained themselves in connection with^^^^°*' 
French Protestants against the tyrannical at- 
tempts of Charles TIL, Duke of Savoy. This 
was a favorite explanation of the origin of the 
word with those writers, who represented 
the Huguenots as secret conspirators against 
the crown. 

The objections to such a derivation are the 
difficulties of accounting for the transfer of 
the name from Switzerland to France, the 
lapse of time before it arose in the latter 
country and the preference given by Beza, 


introd. in his history emanating from Geneva, for 

another derivation. 
Second A less plausible explanation is that offered 
^^J^°*'by some of the Reformed themselves, who de- 
rive it from the part which the French Protes- 
tants took in sustaining Henry IV., the de- 
scendant oi Hiignes Capet, to the throne of 
France, as against the pretensions of the 
Guises, who claimed to have descended from 
Charlemagne. Against this explanation are 
the facts that the Reformed of France were 
called Huguenots some fort}^ years before that 
time, and the concession that the word was 
certainly in its origin a term of reproach, the 
application of which was resented and that 
the king was petitioned to forbid its use. 
Best The most plausible explanation of its origin 
^^J^°^"is that given by Etienne Pasquier, an eminent 
lawyer and litterateur, of France, in one of 
whose letters the word first occurs; and also 
that advanced bv the learned Prof. Mahn, of 
Berlin, whose explanations are alike as to the 
mode of the origin of the word. These two 
writers may be regarded as our best authori- 
ties. Pasquier holds that the term arose in 
Tours from the name Huguon, a superstitious 
Pas- fellow who used to roam the streets of the city 
^and*^ at night; and Prof. Mahn, that it was derived 
Mahn's from HtigJnies^ the name of some heretic. As 
Expiana--(;he early French Protestants dared not to 
meet save under the cover of night, and as the 
term was originally an appellation of reproach, 
how natural it would seem to affix to one or 
the other of these words (as Prof. Mahn sug- 
gests), the French diminutive ot, and for 
Roman Catholics to call them " Hugue^iots. " 
In favor of this explanation is the additional 
affirmation of Pasquier, that he heard the term 


applied to the Protestants by friends of his in introd. 
Tours, eight or nine years before the tumult 
(1560) in Amboise, where they were first dis- 
tinctively called Huguenots. Taken all in all, 
this explanation best coincides with the cir- 
cumstances and requisites of the rise of the

The Rise oi tKe Frencli Reformers^ (1512-33). 

The seeds of Gospel Truth, which pro- Rise of 
duced the great Reformation of the sixteenth ^^^o'^"^- 
century, were first sown and germinated in 
French soil. Before Martin Luther loomed up 
before the world in Germany, and before the 
burning desire for sacred learning had kindled 
in the heart of Zwingle in Switzerland, the 
great and vital truths from which the Refor- 
mation sprung had begun to fall in France. 
Indeed, history proves that the French, 
German, a.nd Swiss Reformations, though aris- 
ing about the same time, were in their incipi- 
ency independent of and without any com- 
munication one with the other. After each of 


introa. the foundations — the three corner-stones as it 
were — of the Reformation had been separately 
and independently laid in each country, and 
the fabric had begun to rise from those three 
points of labor, then the news circulating 
between the separate bands of workers began 
to animate and to accelerate the progress of 
each, until the walls were joined and the 
structure completed stood imposingly before 
the eyes of the world. The workmen who sep- 
arately laid the foundations and finally com- 
pleted the structure in unison, were French, 
German, and Swiss; and Martin Luther was 
the greatest of them all, and became their 
foreman. But that the work first began in 
France there is no question. 

Reforma- The seeds of the Reformation were not a 
Be^*ins foreign importation to her soil, but there the 

in France, first sowcr of any country began to scatter 
the first seeds, and there they first germinated. 
And the reason for it was that no other 
country had been so long and so well prepared 
for the change, though the Reformation there 
met with the bitterest opposition, and was 
longer obtaining legal toleration. In no other 
country did it occasion more bloodshed and 
awful civil wars, and did state administration, 
court intrigue, partisan politics, and desire 
for reputation, exercise greater influence 
against its progress and fortunes. The begin- 
ning of its rise there was also different from 
that in Germany, where it began in a small 
city. In France it began at the most influ- 
ential center of the whole country — in its very 
metropolis and in the great University of 
Paris, the second institution in authority in 
all Roman Christendom. In that institution, 
the seeds of the Reformation were first sown. 


by a Picard, who was soon afterwards assisted introd. 
by a DaupMnese, in scattering them over the 
country. The Picard was James Lef evre, born james 
of humble parentage at Etaples, Picardy, Lefevre. 
about 1450, and educated in mathematics, 
philosophy, and theology at the University, 
and in Greek under Hermonymus of Sparta, 
in Paris, and in the writings of Aristotle in 
Florence, Rome, and Venice. The Dauphinese 
was William Farel, born near Gap in Dau- wiiuam 
phiny, 1489, and also educated at the same ^^^^i- 
University of Paris. As early as 1493, James 
Lefevre, then doctor of divinity, was Pro- 
fessor of Theology in the University, teaching 
the language of the New Testament in the 
course of his theological instructions. Among 
all his colleagues, for amiability, candor, piety, 
intellect and learning, he ranked among the 
first. It was in 1512, under the reign of Louis james 
XU., that this eminent scholar published the J^^^^Y^^ 
first edition of his Latin Commentary on theDoctrmes 
Epistles of Paul, which clearly enunciated the of 
insufficiency of works to save the soul, and the^^tioJ^*" 
doctrine of justification by faith in Christ, as 1512. 
the sinner's only hope; and taught it to the 
great number of disciples from every country 
who sat at his feet. That was five years before 
Martin Luther posted his theses on the doors 
of the Cathedral at Wittenberg, and was really 
the first shoot of the Reformation to spring 
up in any country. James Lefevre, therefore, 
well deserves the name of forerunner of the 
Reformation, an honor attributed to him by 
Theodore Beza, who hails him as the man, 
''who boldly began the revival of the pure 
religion of Jesus Christ." It was a strange 
doctrine for the age, and especially to be heard 
first in the great University of Paris, and 


introd. whose import was to overthrow the subtleties 
of the Schoolmen and observancies of popery. 
Indeed, it must have been strange sounds 
reverberating through the halls of the Uni- 
versity, when Lefevre taught that, "It is God 
alone who gives righteousness through faith, 
who by grace alone justifies unto eternal 
life*'; the doctrine which contradicted the 
teachings of four centuries, and gave rise to 
the Reformed religion. 
Farei Among the pupils of Lefevre at that time 
becmnes a^g^g WTilliam Farcl, who listened earnestly to 
former, the doctriue and for whom it had an inde- 
scribable charm. He embraced the doctrine 
at once with all the ardor of his soul, and his 
conversion to it was as prompt and decisive 
as that of Paul. He then began to study 
Greek and Hebrew, and to read the Scriptures 
earnestly and constantly, when greater light 
dawned upon him. He consecrated the labors 
of his life to the great cause of the Reforma- 
tion, and his courage, influence and power 
Farei became wide and irresistible. He was com- 
ftom Polled to flee from Prance in 1523, when he 
France, retired to Switzerland. Beza says of Farei 
that, "Undismayed by difficulties, threats, 
abuse, or blows, he won over to Jesus Christ 
Month elliard, Neufchatel, Lausanne, Aigle 
and finally Geneva.'' 

But Farei was not the only pupil who 

yielded to the teaching of Lefevre, the great 

theologian from Etaples. In the University 

he trained other scholars who were to enlist in 

the cause. 

wm. William Briconnet, born in Paris 1470, was 

Jg^j^^"g®*another. He was a man of considerable learn- 

Reformering, of a fouducss for the subtleties of refined 

mysticism, and of a kind and gentle temper. 


In 1516, lie was appointed Bishop of Meaux, introd. 
an important town twenty-eight miles east of 1521. 
Paris. Impressed with the low state of piety 
among the clergy, and imbued with the teach- 
ing of Lef evre, Briconnet determined to bring 
about a reform in the ministry of his diocese. 
Accordingly, he demanded of the clergy 
greater faithfulness to pastoral duties, for- 
bade their habit of spending time in pleasure 
at the capital, and prohibited the Franciscan 
monks from entering the pulpits of his diocese. 
In 1521, when opposition arose in the faculty Opposi- 
of the University at Paris to the Reformed *^°°* 
teaching, Briconnet, wishing to train up a 
pure ministry for his churches, invited and 
gathered about him quite a group of scholars, 
including Lef evre, Farel, Martin Mazurier, scholars 
Gerard Roussel and others, by whom the Meaux. 
gospel was preached with much fervor for two 
years in the churches of his diocese, which re- 
sulted in the forming of a Protestant colony at 
Meaux. In 1523, when strenuous opposition 
was brought to bear by the faculty of the Uni- 
versity against the movement, which scattered 1523. 
the scholars, Farel, before ref ugeing to Switz- ^^scat" 
erland, went to the southeast border of the tered. 
country, where he labored for a time with^^^^^" 
great activity, and contributed to the spread south- 
of the Reformation in the provinces of the east. 
Saone, of the Rhone and of the Alps. It was 
in 1523, that Briconnet made Lef evre his vicar- 
general, and also responded to the Monks who 
waited on him and insisted that he, ''Crush 
this heresy, or else the pestilence, which is 
already desolating the city of Meaux, will 
spread over the whole kingdom.'' 

But instead of doing it, he went into the 
pulpit and justified the teaching of Lefevre, 


introd. and called the Monks pliarisees and liypo- 
erites. It was in the same year, that Le- 

Lefevre fevre's Translation from the Vulgate of the 

*^^°^^^*^^New Testament appeared in French — a work 
Testa- which he had begun before going to Meaux, at 

mentintothe rcqucst of Quccu Marguerite. The Book 
was intended for common readers, and copies 
of it were eagerly sought and widely circu- 
lated. Where the poor were unable to pay the 
price demanded for them, they were gratui- 
tously supplied. Briconnet introduced them 
into the churches of Meaux, and the people 
heard the Word of God in their own language 
and were glad. The next year, Lefevre ad- 
dressed a letter to his refugeed friend, William 
Farel, in which he pictured the immediate re- 
sults of the publication, and his glowing hopes 
1524. of the Reformation. The letter is dated, 

^;/^7/[^'' Meaux, July 6, 1524,'^ and is as follows: 
Farei. **Good God, with what joy do I exult when I 
perceive that the grace of the pure knowledge 
of Christ has already spread over a good part 
of Europe ; and I hope that Christ is at length 
about to visit our France with his benediction. 
You can scarcely imagine with what ardor 
God is moving the minds of the simple in some 
places to embrace his Word since the books of 
the New Testament have been published in 
French; but you will justly lament that they 
have not been more widely scattered among 
the people. Some enemies have endeavored, 
under cover of the authority of Parliament, 
to hinder the work; but our most generous 
King has become in this matter the defender 
of the cause of Christ, declaring it to be his 
will that his kingdom shall hear the Word of 
God without impediment in that tongue which 
it understands. Now throughout our entire 


diocese, on feast days and especially on introa. 
Sunday, both the Epistle and the Gospel are 
read to the people in their native tongue, and 
the parish priest adds a word of exhortation 
to the Epistle or Gospel, or both at his own 
discretion/' That French edition, with Le- 
fevre's similar Translation of the Old Testa- 
ment in 1528, subsequently became the basis 
of the Translation of Peter Robert Olivetan, 
which proved so important in the history of 
the progress of Protestantism in France. 

When the members of the Protestant colony 
at Meaux saw their evangelical teachers dis- 
persed in 1523, they began to edify and to 
strengthen one another. Among them was a 
common wool-carder named John Leclerc. He John 
had been instructed in the reformed doctrines ^«^^^^<=- 
by the teachers personally, and by their tracts, 
and had himself read the Word of God in his 
own language from Lefevre's Translation of 
the New Testament. Being a man of great 
courage and filled with the Spirit of God, he 
at once in his humble way took up the work, 
and signalized himself for zeal and facility, in 
expounding the Scriptures. 

The church at Meaux came soon to regard 
him as its minister. He was active in visiting 
the people, and in confirming the disciples. 
But not satisfied with such ordinary cares, his 
unguarded zeal led him to proclaim against 
the Antichrist of Rome, and to post his " plac- 
ards'' on the gates of the Cathedral. The 
act was a great surprise to the faithful, and 
a great exasperation to the priests, who 
wondered how a common wool-comber could 
thus measure himself with the pope. The 
Franciscans were outrageous, and demanded 
that a terrible example be made of him. 


introd. Hence he was thrown into prison, soon tried, 
and being condemned, was whipped three 
days on his bare back through the streets of 
the city, and then branded on his forehead 
with a hot iron as a heretic. After the execu- 
tion, he was set at liberty; and leaving Meaux 
for Rosay in Brie, he subsequently landed at 
Metz in Lorrame, which was steadily and 
quietly becoming a center of the Reformed. 
There he instructed the people of his own con- 
dition, but his same imprudent zeal caused 
him secretly to break the images of the Virgin, 
and of the most celebrated saints of the 
country, the night before the people were to 
worship them and obtain the pardon of their 
sins, in the chapel out from town, where they 
were preserved. For this act, he was appre- 
Lecierc hcuded, condemned, and put to a most cruel 

^^l^ and diabolical death, and became fke first 
martyr of the French Reformation. 

The next man to be mentioned who espoused 
the Reformed Religion, about 1523, was a 

1523. nobleman of the French Court, Louis Berquin, 
Berquin. "^^^^ about thirty years of age. He was pure 
"in morals, open in disposition, charitable to 
the poor, of profound knowledge (entitled 
''the most learned of the nobles")? and of un- 
bounded attachment to his friends. The fa- 
naticism, bickering, tyranny, and persecution, 
which had begun to arise against the Re- 
formers, and his innate opposition to injustice 
kindled in the heart of Berquin, the desire to 
know that Holy Bible, which was so dear to 
the Reformed, and which caused them to 
endure so much for the sake of their faith. He 
had scarcely begun to read the Book before it 
won his heart. As he was not a man who did 
things by halves, he immediately joined Le- 


fevre, Briconnet and all those who loved the introd. 
Word, and in fellowshipping with them, ex- 
perienced the purest joys. So anxious was he 
to pour floods of truth over all his countrymen, 
that he immediately began to write and trans- 
late Christian books into French. Living 
alternately in Paris and in the provinces, he 
collected together many of the works of the 
Protestants, and translated the writings of 
Luther; and himself composed controversial 
works in which he defended and propagated 
the new doctrines. His study in Paris was to 
the votaries of Rome like a book-seller ^s shop, 
in which he was translator, corrector, printer 
and book-seller. Three times his collections 
and writings were condemned to be burned, 
and he was cast into prison. On the first two 
occasions, 1523, 1526, he was liberated, and his 
friends advised him after his second libera- 
tion to leave the country, or at least to keep 
silent; but he considered that to be against his 
conscience. The third time when he was im- 
prisoned, March, 1529, he was sentenced to be Berqum 
burned alive, and the sentence was executed, J^^^'^ 
April 22, 1529 : he being ^/le second Protestant 1529.' 

By this time, Lefevre's French Testament 
was being circulated by the thousands 
throughout France by peddlers from Switzer- 
land, where copies were printed by Farel and 
Treatises of French Protestants were being 
printed in Latin, French, and Italian, at Ham- 
burg, Germany, and conveyed to France by 
ships on the sea; and already since 1524 there 
had been existing at Basle, a Bible Society, a 
Tract Society and an Association of Colpor- 
teurs, for the benefit of the Reformed of 


introd. France. The country was being flooded with 
literature of the Reformers. 

We will consider next the I'oyal influence 

which aided the Rise of the Reformation. 

Louis Louis XII., who was reigning when Lefevre's 

^igf"; 5 Commentary of Paul's Epistles appeared, died 
less than three years afterwards, January 1, 
1515; and Francis I. (son of Charles of Orle- 
ans, and son-in-law of the King by marriage to 
his daughter, Claude, in 1514), succeeded him 

Francis I. to the throuc. The friendship of Francis I. to 
^^^s- the sciences, and his attachment and gener- 
osity to learned men induced many persons of 
genius, who were favorable to the Reforma- 
tion to take up their residence in France ; and 
the writings of the Protestants being gener- 
ally better compositions than those of the 
papists were introduced extensively through- 
out the country and eagerly read. 

Influence This patronage which Francis gave to leam- 

Francisi^^S ^^t ouly causcd Frauce to pass from the 
on the middle ages to modern times, but also con- 

^^^?J^' tributed to aid and inspire the Reformers. 
He prepared the way for the truths of 
the Reformation to root and spring up by 
founding Hebrew and Greek professorships. 
Hence Theodore Beza, in placing his portrait 
at the head of the Reformers, says: ''Pious 
spectator! do not shudder at the sight of 
this adversary! Ought he not to have a 
part in this honor, who expelled barba- 
rism from the world, and with firm hand 
substituted in its stead three languages and 
sound learning, to be as it were the portals 
to the new building that was shortly to be 
1521. erected?" In 1521 when the deputies of the 
Sorbonne waited upon Francis to remonstrate 
against the Reformers, as heretics, he re- 


sponded: "I will not have these people mo- introd. 
lested. To persecute those who teach us, 
would prevent able scholars from coming into 
the country/' On two occasions, when the 
faculty of the University took action against 
certain evangelical truths in the writings of 
Lefevre, he rescued him from persecution. It 
was probably in 1523 that the writings of the 1523. 
Reformers were introduced, and held a place 
among the beautiful bound books of Francis' 
Court, as works of literary merit. He liberated 
Berquin from prison, and in 1526 he recalled 
the scholars, who had refugeed from France. 
Francis, however, made no pretensions to re- 
ligion, but only used it as a means for ad- 
vancing his royal interests, and so it was that 
many of his acts encouraged the evangelicans. 
As long as the new religion conduced to his 
popularity, as a man of letters, and was not 
detrimental to his reign over the masses, he 
v/ould not allow it to be interfered with, 
though it were antagonistic to the Established 
Roman Catholic Church. Religion with him 
was only a policy. 

But with his sister. Marguerite of Angou-inflj^ence 
lene, it was quite different. Reared with guerfte. 
Francis at the Court of Louis XII., she shared 
the attention of his able tutors who prepared 
him for the throne; and w^hile his education 
made him only a patron of letters, it made 
her in addition a friend of the Reformers. 
She was one of the first to become an ardent 
believer in, and a convert to the doctrine of 
justification by faith alone. She was a lovely Margue- 
woman: — captivating in manners, amiable in ^^l^J_ 
disposition, pure in morals and moved in acter. 
the midst of her brother's licentious court 
like an angel of light. As a King's daughter; 


^trod . a King's sister; a Iving's wife (first, of Duke 
Charles of Alencon, and second of Henry 
of Albret, King of Navarre) ; as a patroness 
of literature; with accomplishments of form 
and manners: as the solitary roval believer 
of the faith in Christ that alone saves the 
soul: maintaining that faith in her varied 
positions; asserting her royal bu'th and 
privileges; rejecting whatever she thought 
opposed to a heavenly life; and whose ruling 
passion was to do good and prevent evil, 
she was evidently the most lovely woman 
of the age, and may be classed among the 
remarkable persons of the Reformation in all 

For her brother Francis, she cherished 
the tenderest affection, and held in return 
a firm hold on his heart. During his early 
reign, he took kindly her efforts to convert 
him to the new religion. But his disinclina- 
tion to any religion, and specially to the pure 
life required by the Gospel, prevented his 
acceptance. He, however, did not at first ob- 
ject to her entertainment of, and association 
with the Reformers, and her support of their 

Royal doctrines. Hence high-bred noblemen among 
g^fj^^'gthe Reformers were close associates of the 

Palace. Duchess of Alencou and the Qtieen of Xavarre, 
and often conversed with her on the doctrines 
of the Reformation. Among them were Le- 
fevi'e. Farel, Briconnet. Roussel and Berquin. 
They lent her their wiitings and tracts, and 
spoke personally with her nf the pure Word of 
God, of worshipping in spirit and in truth, of 
christian libertv which shakes off the yoke of 
superstition and the traditions of men to bind 
them closer to God alone. But of all the 
Reformers, it was Bishop Briconnet, whose 


friendship she particularly enjoyed, and who introd. 
became her spiritual guide. At the time of 
the retirement of the scholars from Paris to 
Meaux; the going forth of her husband to 
war; and the departure of her youthful aunt, 
Philiberta, to Savoy, she was made to feel 
very lonely and deserted. She turned to Bri- 
connet for consolation, and the letters which 
passed between them were exceedingly touch- 
ing. It was about a year later that the Bishop 
sent her a copy of the Epistles of Paul, trans- 
lated and splendidly illuminated, as a present 
to her brother Francis, and thus commended 
them : ' ' They are a royal dish, fattening with- 
out corruption, and healing all manner of 
sickness. The more we taste them, the more 
we hunger after them with desire unsatiable, 
and that never clovs. " Later on when Francis 
recalled the fugitive scholars, Roussel became 
her court preacher, and in that position faith- 
fully preached the evangelical doctrines; and 
on her marriage to the King of Xavarre, in 
1527, he became her confessor. Three years 
later she made him abbot of Clairac, and in 
1533, she invited him to preach in the Louvre, 
which he did amid great popular agitation, 
when many Romans were expelled from the 
city. It was also in 1533 that Marguerite 
published at Alencon, her volume of poetrv 1533- 
entitled, "The Mirror of the Smful SouF'; in^^ritS" 
which true religion is sunnned up in "Man's Poem, 
sin and God's grace — that what man needs is 
to have his sins remitted and wholly pardoned 
in consequence of Christ's death; and when by 
faith he has found assurance of this pardon, he 
enjoys peace." The work was considered by 
the Sorbonne as a clear and complete proof 
that she was a heretic. In Lefevre's old age, 


introd. when he was about seventy-five, she invited 
him to retire to Nerac, her residence, where he 
spent the remnant of his days, often in her 
Lefevre's presence, and sitting at her royal table. There 
^1536.' ^^ ^^^' home he died about 1536. She became 
the refuge and defender of the Reformers. 
Thus we gather the influence of this remarka- 
ble woman on the Rise of the Reformation in 
Margue- France. But as the storms political and ec- 
influence clcsiastical began to hover over the country, 
inter- her influence was interdicted. The cry was 
dieted, iieard with great surprise that "Even the 
sister of the King takes part with these 
l^eople.^' She was denounced to Francis, but 
the King who was tenderly attached to her 
pretended to think the cry untrue. Finally 
Francis, prompted by the Bishops of the papa- 
cv, sent for his sister, and rebuked her for 
suffering these innovations to take place. She 
promised not to go any further in the matter, 
provided the following concessions were 
granted her: "1st. That no mass should be 
said unless there were persons to receive the 
eucharist. 2d. That the elevation of the host 
should cease. 3d. The worship of it also. 4th. 
That the eucharist should be administered in 
both kinds. 5th. That in the mass, there 
should be no mention made of Marj^ and the 
saints. 6th. That common, ordinary bread 
should be taken, broken, and distributed. And 
7th. That the priests should not be compelled 
to a life of celibacy." But these propositions, 
which go to show the belief of her heart, were 
rejected; and the preachers, she had brought 
with her to Paris, being thrown into prison, 
were with great difficulty at her intercession 
set at liberty. At last the King was forced by 
the papacy to strictly command his sister to 


avoid all innovations in religious matters, introd. 

By this time, the doctrines of the Ref- 1533. 
ormation had been widely scattered and 
thoroughly rooted in France. Springing up 
first in the city of Paris, whence students of 
the University scattered them generally over 
the country, they found a lodgment first at 
Meaux in the organization of a colony, and 
were then carried to the Southeast, and be- 
came so deeply rooted in many places, that 
Rome with all her persecutions has never suc- 
ceeded in uprooting them. 

It is proper to state that all the above men- status of 
tioned advocates of the Reformation were not /gfo^- 
out-and-out Reformers, like Luther, Calvin ers. 
and Zwingle; i. e., all of them did not break 
with Rome, and boldly attack its doctrines. 
Some of them remained in the Roman Catholic 
Church, and tried to occupy a middle ground, 
and hence when persecution faced them, they 
either recanted, as did Briconnet and Mazu- 
rier, or kept silent, as did Maguerite, the 
Queen of Navarre. Lef evre, being of that na- 
ture which unfitted him for strife, led rather 
the quiet life of an instructor, and while all his 
affinities were with the reformers and he 
aided them with his pen, and occasionally in 
public guarded discourses, he still remained 
in the church of Rome. But in his very last 
daj^s, it was his deepest, even most pitiful 
sorrow, expressed in sobs of tears, that he had 
not shown to the world his true colors, and 
been in the forefront of the battle. Roussel 
also held an intermediate position, but so con- 
ducted his public life and utterances as to 
narrowly escape persecution. But with Farel, 
Leclerc and Berquin it was quite different. 
They gave no uncertain sounds, but boldly as- 


introd. serted their belief and contended for the 
doctrines of the Reformation to the last. 
Hence Farel had to flee the country, and the 
other two were martyred. In France the Rise 
of the Reformation had no leader, as it had in 
Germany in Martin Luther, who was suf- 
ficiently supported by the civil power to make 
him bold, aggressive, and antagonistic to 
Rome. The whole civil and ecclesiastical 
power in France was arrayed against the 
movement, and it was not possible for any one 
person to have maintained its leadership: 
death would have been his inevitable fate. 
Hence its doctrines had to work silently like 
leaven, diifusing themselves in the hearts of 
the people secretly, until a firm and perma- 
nent belief was established, sufficient to main- 
tain itself; which was effected in about twenty 
years from its first promulgation by James 


The Persecution of tlie Reformers under tlie forms of 
law, until their religion was recognized, (1534-62). 

Persecu- Persecution began against the Reformers as 
Re*form- ^^^'Ij ^^ 1521, but it was uot uutil the year 
ers. 1534 that it became active and of organized 
1534. form. In the summer of that year, the pious 
Protestants of Paris began to discuss among 
themselves the perils of their condition, and 
whether it were wiser to attempt to reform 
the Romish church, or to organize a new one. 
To decide the question, they despatched a mes- 
senger to Switzerland to consult Farel and the 
Mani- other refugees. The advice of the refugees 
festo. was that a ''Manifesto,'^ in the form of plac- 
ards and pamphlets, should be secretly posted 


and circulated throughout France, in the hope introd. 
of arousing thereby vigorous action among the 
Protestants, and of inducing the King to re- 
form the Romish church. Farel himself, in 
his characteristic, vehement language, wrote 
the ** Manifesto,^' censuring the errors of the 
Romish church and especially the Mass, which 
was the safeguard of Rome, and the abomina- 
tion of the Reformed. The messenger re- 
turned with a supply of them in both forms. 
The design did not meet with universal 
approval among the Protestants, for some 
thought it harsh and would lead to severe con- 
sequences. However, after prolonged deliber- 1534- 
ation, they decided to execute it, and the night ^^^^ 
of October 23, 1534, was fixed for posting the posted, 

On the morning of the 24th, the Catholics 
found the paper posted throughout the city 
of Paris and elsewhere, and even the King, 
who was at Blois, found one affixed to the door 
of his own room. The effect though electric 
and astounding did not result as was hoped, 
for while it electrified the Reformers, it 
aroused the Romanists to violence. So numer- 
ous were the Reformers at this time, if they 
had had a leader to organize them, they might 
have won the day by forcing Francis I. to 
conciliate and establish his kingdom in their 
hearts. But the undisciplined and unorgan- 
ized Reformers without a leader were left to 
contend with the disciplined and organized 
Romanist in church and state, with the King 
at their head. The Romanist proclaimed that 
a plot was forming to destroy the kingdom 
and religion; and the King incensed that his 
own door had been placarded, declared the act 
high treason and ordered: ''Let all be seized 


i ntrod . without distinction who are suspected of Lu- 
theresy; I will exterminate them all.'* 
Seizures, trials, and condemnations immedi- 
ately began, which were followed with burn- 
ings on November 13, and continued at inter- 
vals. The Reformers of all ranks, who were 
likely of suspicion even, sought refuge in exile, 
for there was no safety for them in their native 
1535. land. Finally, the 25th of January, 1535, was 
^Son' appointed as a day of expiation for the sin 
for Sin of 0/ //le placards. On that day Paris was in 
Placards. gj.g^^ excitement, with crowds filling the 
streets. An immense procession paraded 
through the city, the van of which consisted of 
those who bore crosses from the parishes ; next 
came the citizens in double file, bearing each a 
torch; then the four begging orders with the 
priests and canons of the city, bearing all 
manner of Romish relics; then a great number 
of the Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops and 
Abbots; then a canopy borne by the three sons 
of Francis I. and the Duke of Vendome, under 
which was the Host for the sacrament of Mass, 
borne by the Bishop of Paris; then came 
Francis himself, walking and bareheaded, 
bearing a lighted taper, as a penitent; and then 
came the Queen, princes, and princesses, for- 
eign embassadors, the Court, the Chancellor of 
France, the Council, the Parliament enrobed 
in scarlet, the University and other corpora- 
tions, and last the Guard: all bearing a taper 
in profound silence. The procession halted at 
principal places to repose for a few moments 
the Host on temporary altars, before one of 
which Francis, with all who desired to follow 
his example, knelt and humbled himself for 
the sin of the placards. So great were the 
crowds, that officers could with difficulty keep 


a passage clear for the procession. It finally introd. 
halted at the Church of Notre Dame, where 
the Host was placed on the altar, and the 
Bishop of Paris said Mass as atonement for 
past insults. After that, a sumptuous dinner 
was served the King and princes at the 
Bishop's palace; and that ended, the nobles 
and prominent persons repaired to the 
bishop's great hall to hear a speech from the 
King. He pathetically lamented the harm 
done to religion in the placards, and urged all 
to unite in the support of the Romish church, 
and declared: "I warn you that I will have 
the said errors expelled and driven from my 
kingdom, I will excuse no one. As I am your 
King, if I knew one of my limbs infected with 
this rottenness, I would give it ,you to cut off. 
And if I saw one of my children defiled by it, 
I would not spare him. I would deliver him 
up myself, and sacrifice him to God." At the 
close of his speech, he was approached and 
thanked for his zeal by two representatives, 
who kneeled before him, one on the part of the 
Roman clergy, and the other in behalf of the 
Roman people. The response of the audience 
was, "We will live and die for the Catholic 
religion." The procession with the King and 
nobles then formed again and proceeded to 
two points in the city, where victims were held 
to be burnt alive, that the wrath of God might 
be appeased. At each place, three brave and 
respected Reformers were separately exe- six 
cuted, by letting each down into the flames ^^oms^" 
and lifting him out of them, a number of times, in Paris. 
by means of a strappado, until the rope which 
bound his hands to it was burned, and he then 
fell into the hot coals of fire : an awful death 
in preference to abjuring his religion which 


introd . was offered to each. In other parts of France 

1545. similar executions were made, which exhibited 

the fiendish spirit of men glorying in the 

torments of their fellow-men, and also the 

triumph of devout faith over death. 

From this time forth, Francis I. strove to be 
absolute Monarch of both church and state, 
and legislation became more systematically 
severe. Only two other martyrdoms need be 
mentioned which occurred during his reign. 

1545. In 1545 the Waldenses, living on the river 
ggg®°" Durance in Southeast France, were horribly 
Mar- massacred by an armed expedition fitted out 

tyred, g^^ j^^^ with the consent of the King. Twenty- 
two towns and villages were burned to ashes, 
four thousand persons murdered, and mul- 
titudes of little children were suffered to 
perish after their parents had fallen. About 
four thousand persons sought refuge in flight, 
and returned afterwards to their old abodes, 
but to live on in a pitiable state. These moun- 
taineers were massacred for the same reasons 
as the Reformed had been — their faith in the 
sufficiency of the Scriptures. 

1546. The next year witnessed the martyrdom of 
the ''Fourteen at Meaux.'^ In that city the 
building in which the reformed doctrines had 
been preached with success was destroyed, 
and another erected on the same site in which 
mass was celebrated. Fourteen of the people 
who used to worship in the former building 
were seized and refusing to abjure their faith 
were committed to the flames. 

1547. Francis I. died May 31, 1547, and his bigoted 
Frands'i.^^^ licentious SOU, Henry II., succeeded him. 

and Henry was a chip of the old block, though of 

^on^o^f ^^^^ mental and physical ability. Having 

Henry II. married Catherine de Medici, niece of Pope 


Clement VII., he was bound more closely to introa. 
the Romish church. During his reign, (1547- 
59), the reformed religion grew steadily de- 
spite the most earnest attempts to destroy it. 
Its growth may be attributed mainly to the in- 
fluence and labors of three persons, and the 
help extended it from abroad. 

One of these persons was Renata, daughter Renata. 
of Louis XII., and sister of Claude, wife of 
Francis I. Born in Blois, October 25, 1510, 
Renata enjoyed in early life the company and 
influence of Marguerite, and the advantages of 
association with the Reformers, and of their 
writings. Carefully educated; endowed with 
many mental qualifications; quick of wit; apt 
to learn; delighting in the study of theology 
as drawn from the Scriptures ; capable of dis- 
tinguishing between true and false principles 
in morals and religion; possessed of ardent 
affection, strong feelings, and strong will ; she 
chose for herself the religion of the Reformers, 
and even ranked with Marguerite in her influ- 
ence for it. In 1527, the year that Marguerite 
became Queen of Navarre, she became the 
wife of Hercules De Este, Duke of Ferrara 
and Modena in Italy, bordering on France. 
Her husband was always partial to the Pope, 
under whose influence he was often severe. 
The Reformers in time of trouble found a ref- 
uge with her. Calvin, whose Institutes was 
her standard of theology, and Clement Marot, 
the Psalm singer, each at a different time 
found a refuge with her. The Duke would 
sometimes make it prudent for the Reformers 
to retire, but could never abate her strength 
of attachment for the Evangelical doctrines 
which she embraced in youth. Near the close 
of her life, she was threatened by the Duke of 


introd . Greve with destruction of Montagris, where 
she was then residing, if she did not expel 
from it some Protestants. She replied: "If 
you come, I will be present in the breach, and 
I will try whether you will have the boldness 
to kill the daughter of a king. If you should 
commit such a crime, heaven and earth will 
avenge her death, on all your lives, even to the 
children in their cradles." The Duke, to 
whom she had espoused her daughter, Ann 
of Este, paused and threatened her no more. 
She was always exposed to trials because she 
resided between the two fires of France on 
the one side, and Rome the seat of papacy on 
the other. But she maintained her faith to the 
last, and lived to see the Reformed Church of 
Prance fully organized, separated from Rome, 
and extending its influence over a large part 
of her native country. She died June 12, 1575. 
John During the same period, John Calvin was 
Calvin. j^52other person who wielded a great influence 
in behalf of the new religion. Born in France 
at Noyon, Picardy, July 10, 1509, when 
eighteen years of age, by advice of his father, 
he turned his attention to law and became 
brilliant, receiving the Degree of Doctor of 
Laws. After the death of his father in 1531, 
he studied Greek and Protestantism under 
Melchior Wolmar, and theology in Paris. In 
the latter part of 1532, he was thoroughly con- 
verted to the Reformed Religion. He preached 
frequently in the meetings of the Protestants, 
commonly closing with the words, "If God be 
for us, who can be against us." He prepared 
the inaugural address of Nicholas Cop, which 
Cop delivered in 1533, before a large assembly. 
The address was a plea for reform in the Es- 
tablished Church, on a pure gospel basis. On 


account of its sentiments Calvin had to flee to introd. 
the south of France and wander for some time 
under assumed names, but was all the while 
sowing the seeds of the Reformation. The 
outbreak of persecution in 1534 compelled his 
flight to Strassburg, and in 1536, he was in 
Basle where he published his immortal histi- 
tiites. In August of the same year, while in 
Geneva, he was induced by Farel's burn- 
ing words of God's possible wrath towards 
him to renounce his studies, and to espouse 
actively the cause of the Reformation, which 
he did in his writings from Geneva. Few 
could excel Calvin in the use of the pen. 
His correspondence became immense all over 
Europe. His letters, his Institutes, and his 
commentaries on the Scriptures were sent 
particularly to France and circulated ex- 
tensively. The productions of his pen went 
where he dared not go, and silently operated 
on the judgment and heart of the people. 
His influence was almost incredible. Strin- 
gent laws against the importation of books 
from Geneva accomplished nothing, and the 
result was that the final organization of the 
Reformed Church of France was modeled after 
Calvin's ideal. Thus, while he was not per- 
sonally in France, where he wished to live and 
die, his sentiments were there, which molded 
the hearts of the people, and modeled in their 
minds the Scriptural Church of his choice. 
He died May 27, 1564. 

It was in the same period that the poet, element 
Clement Marot, arose. His influence on the ^^^o<^- 
Reformatory movement consisted in his trans- 
lations of some of the Psalms into French 
verse. In 1540 he versified and printed 
twenty Psalms into lively ballad measure and 


introd dedicated them to the King. The demand for 
copies was greater than the supply. The Sor- 
bonne censured the book, but the King and 
Court carried it against all opposition. It be- 
came so popular that everywhere and by all 
classes the Psalms of Marot might be heard at 
all times sung to lively tunes; and for a while 
they superceded the national songs. Encour- 
aged by his first edition, he paraphrased 
thirty more Psalms in the same measure, and 
printed the fifty in one volume in Geneva in 
1543, with a preface by Calvin, which was 
widely circulated. After this Beza versified 
the remaining Psalms, which were printed 
with Marot 's in one volume. Calvin then per- 
suaded two accomplished musicians to set the 
whole to music. In a little time ten thousand 
copies were sold. People sang them in pri- 
vate, at meals, and in their social circles, and 
with whatever motive, the effect was good to 
their conscience. In 1553, the Reformed in- 
troduced the use of these Psalms in their 
worship, which was the cause of their rejec- 
tion by the Romanists. After that, to sing one 
of them was evidence of a desire to reform the 
Roman Catholic Church. But their rejection 
was too late. The Psalms had already done 
their work, which can never be estimated for 
the good of pure religion. Marot died in 1554. 
During the first four years of the reign of 
Henry II., nothing in the way of persecution 
transpired worthy of special mention. He 
followed in the wake of his father, encour- 
aging the Reformation in Germany to weaken 
his father's rival, Charles V., while he perse- 
1551. cuted it in his own kingdom. He issued the 
Chat'iu- ^^^^* ^^ Chateaubriand, June 27, 1551, which 
briand. enjoined upon the civil and ecclesiastical 


courts to combine for the detection and i ntrod . 
punishment of Reformers. Persons convicted 
of the reformed faith were to be denied 
the right of appeal from the decision of 
these courts. Persons suspected were to be 
excluded from every public preferment and 
all academic honors. Heavy penalties were 
to be imposed upon any who should harbor 
Reformers, connive at their escape, or present 
petitions in their behalf. Informers were to 
be awarded one-third part of the goods of 
those informed on. All heretical books from 
abroad were forbidden, and a rigid censor- 
ship of the home press was established to 
prevent the publication of such works. But 
notwithstanding these harsh repressive meas- 
ures the Reformers continued to increase. 

In 1553, Henry II. permitted the martyr- 1553. 
dom of five young men, in Lyons, Southeast ^a^om^^' 
France. They were arrested for maintaining in Lyons 
the doctrines of the Reformation — that man is 
saved by faith alone in Christ, that the Scrip- 
tures were sufficient without tradition, and 
that a reform of the Romish Church was 
needed, and in default of that a Reformed 
French Church. On their way to the place of 
execution they sang one of Marot's Psalms in 
French, recited the Apostle ^s creed in sen- 
tences, one after the other in turn, and before 
execution prayed and kissed each other. A 
chain bound all five to a stake and a rope was 
arranged around their necks to strangle and 
spare them the suffering of burning alive, but 
the flames soon burned the cord, and they died 
crying to each other in the midst of the flames, 
** Courage brother!" Multitudes in Lyons 
immediately imbibed the courage with which 
they died, and soon professed faith in the Re- 


introd. formed religion. From their example we leam 
how a courageous death and the song of the 
martyr in flames will inspire others to embrace 
that faith which will sustain in such last, great 
1555- In September, 1555, an attempt was made 
before Parliament in Paris to introduce the 
Spanish Inquisition, but failed in consequence 
of its enlightened and liberal minded Presi- 
dent, Sequier, who favored mild proceedings 
against the so-called "heretics." Wliile the 
discussion was going on, the first Protestant 
church in France was organized in a private 
house in Paris; and almost immediately there 
First sprang up fifteen Protestant Communities, 
^Chu™h.^^-^® largest being at Meaux, Poitiers, and 
Angers, each having its pastor, elders and 
deacons, each ruling itself, and recognizing no 
common bond of union save that of charity 
and suffering. 

In the same year an expedition was planned 
by Admiral Coligny, and sailed for Brazil to 
settle a colony of Reformers in that country, 
where they were for a time free from persecu- 
tion; but the scheme finally failed through the 
treachery of Villegagnon. 
1559. In the spring of 1559, Henry II., influenced 
by the Romanists, appeared in Parliament at 
the head of an imposing escort, and reproached 
it for the lukewarmness shown in respect to 
the church. Anne Dubourg, a member of the 
body, who had embraced the reformed religion 
the preceding year, spoke immediately after 
the King with great openness and eloquence, 
and affirmed that, "There is a necessity for a 
reform; the persecution of those called heretics 
cannot be justified." The King construed the 
words as an insult to his royal personage and 


becoming provoked had him arrested and con- introd. 
demned, and said, "I hope with mine own eyes 
to see Dubourg burnt/' That noble and 
honest man was strangled and then burned at 
the stake in Paris, but the King was not per- 
mitted to realize his fiendish desire, for he 
himself died before the execution. 

The Reformers increased greatly in num- 
bers during the last years of the reign of 
Henry. As proof of this fact, about six weeks 
before the Monarch lost his life, the first First 
National Synod of the Reformed Church oi^^^^^^^ 
France met secretly in Paris, May 26, 1559. 1559.' 
It adopted a Confession of Faith, and estab- 
lished in its ecclesiastical discipline a repre- 
sentative form of government, with its courts, 
consistory, provincial Synod and National 
Synod. The National Synod was the supreme 
ecclesiastical court, composed of representa- 
tives from the thirteen Provincial Synods, 
which held jurisdiction over the same terri- 
tory as did the thirteen Provincial Parlia- 

It was during the same year that Henry 11. 1559- 
concluded a disgraceful peace with Philip II., 
of Spain, which surprised all Europe. One of 
his chief secret motives was that of the exter- 
mination of the Protestants. Cardinal Lor- 
raine, with the knowledge and approbation of 
the Pope, induced the two kings to cease from 
war, and to unite their powders for the destruc- 
tion of the Reformers, who were already too 
numerous. This part of the treaty was not 
revealed to the world till after years. One 
article of the public treaty was that Henry 
should give his eldest sister. Marguerite, in 
marriage to the Duke of Savoy, and his own 
daughter, Isabella, to Philip, the King of 


introd. Spain. It was at the celebration of these 
Death of nuptials in Paris, that Henry II. received an 
Henry u. accidental wound from which he died, July 10, 
1559, which thwarted the contemplated ex- 
termination of the Reformed by the joint 
F^raci*^ The brief reign of Henry's eldest son, 
II. Francis II. (1559-60), a youth of only sixteen 
years of age was eventful. The execution of 
Anne Dubourg, December 23, 1559, who was 
distinguished for ability and singular purity 
of character, contributed more to advance 
Protestantism in France, and to exasperate 
liberal-minded men against the prevailing 
tyranny, than any previous acts of cruelty. 

Francis II., being in minority, his mother, 
Catherine De Medici, assumed the regency of 
the kingdom. The question arose between 
two families of the Princes of blood, as to 
which of them had the right to administer the 
affairs of the kingdom during the minority of 
Bourbon Francis. One of these families was repre- 
Guise sented by Antoine, of Bourbon, King of 
Families. Navarre, and his brother, Louis, Prince of 
Conde ; the other by Charles, Cardinal of Lor- 
raine, and his brother, Francis, Duke of Guise. 
The Bourbon line favored the Protestants, the 
Guises favored the Romanists. Fears were 
entertained, not only of a protracted regency 
by the Queen Mother, but also that the crown 
might soon depart from the Valois line on ac- 
count of the feeble constitution and sickly 
habits of the young King, and the delicate 
appearance of his younger brothers. Hence 
the succession of the crown was discussed 
throughout the kingdom. Both aspirants, the 
Bourbons and the Guises, were active in 
strengthening their claims. 


The Bourbons could claim amon^ the introd. 
nobility, the King of Navarre, the Prince of 
Conde, Admiral Coligny, the Chattillons and 
many others, and the majority of the middle 
classes of Society. The Guises could claim 
the majority of the nobility, and of the lower 
classes. Catherine De Medici had her settled 
principles also, which were to maintain her 
regency during the minority of her children; 
to prevent the Bourbons from securing the 
Crown, if it should pass from her hands; and 
in case she succeeded in both, then the exter- 
mination of the Protestants both in church and 
state. To carry out her designs she gave the 
powers of an active mind, the energy of a 
powerful will, the resources of an unscrupu- 
lous heart, and never gave over in circumven- 
tion, fraud and deception, till the Grown 
finally passed to the Bourbons in 1584, to 
which stirring events will lead us. 

In 1560, the above mentioned nobles and a 1560. 
great number of distinguished persons on the 
Bourbon side met at Vendome to consult about 
settling the regency. Conde proposed to take 
up arms, but the King of Navarre and Coligny 
objected on the ground that such a course 
would expose them to the charge of treason. 
The proposition finally prevailed that a depu- 
tation should wait on the Queen Mother to 
persuade her to abandon the Guise pretensions 
and to favor the Bourbon claims, or to at least 
grant the Protestants a share in the govern- 
ment. The King of Navarre was sent to visit Antoine 
the court, but all his propositions and remon- ^-J^^^" 
strances were ultimately rejected. The Queen Queen 
Mother, however, with great address, won the Mother, 
confidence of Antoine, who finally returned to 
his home in Beam, satisfied with the brilliant 


introd. promises made him. But Conde and many 
others were greatly dissatisfied. Consequent- 
ly two other meetings of the Reformers were 
speedily held, which resulted in arousing and 
uniting their numerous adherents in the South 
to demand and defend their rights. Having 
chosen Conde for their leader, they decided 
February, 1560, at Nantes, that a body of un- 
armed men should appear at the gates of Blois, 
where the court was residing, and demand 
leave to present to the King a petition, pray- 
ing for liberty of conscience and religious 
toleration. In case of unkind reception given 
the petitioners, they were to be protected by 
small bodies of armed men advancing by 
different routes. In this scheme they were 
betrayed to the Duke of Guise, who persuaded 
the court to remove to Amboise. A military 
force was also prepared for the occasion. 
When the Embassy appeared at Amboise, they 
were driven from the gates, and their armed 
forces which were advancing by different 
routes were unexpectedly attacked, slain and 
captured, few escaping. Some of the captured 
were immediately hanged, and some 1,200 men 
perished. Conde who was the first to reach 
the court was captured and put under guard, 
Hugue- but soon after released. 

Desig- I* ^^'^s from this time that the Reformers 

nated. wcrc distmcHvely called Huguenots. 

1560. In March of the same year (1560), the 

s^°od^^ second National Synod of the Reformed 

Church of France met at Poitiers, with Le 

Baillem, President. 

War was now begun, and Guise to 
strengthen himself proposed the Inquisition. 
The wisest statesman of the age. Chancellor 
Michael L'Hopital, advocated toleration for 


the two reasons: ''1st. The justice of the introd . 
thing, arising out of man's relation to man, 
and to God. 2d. The large and increasing 
number of the Huguenots, who as loyal citi- 
zens had equal rights with the Catholics. '' The 
result was the Edict of Romorantin, May, Edict of 
1560, in which the King gave to Parliament ^^ntin 
the right of deciding in matters of faith, leav- 
ing to the bishops the privileges of discover- 
ing and pointing out heretics. 

In August, 1560, the Queen Regent called 
an Assembly of the principal persons of the^^s^^^'y 
kingdom to meet at Fontainbleau. There were Fontain- 
present the royal family, with the Cardinals, ^leau. 
Bourbon and Lorraine, the Duke of Guise, the 
Constable Montmorency, the Chancellor 
L'Hopital, the Admiral Coligny, the Marshals, 
Brissac and St. Andre, the Archbishop of 
Vienne, the Bishops of Orleans and Valence, 
and many others. Admiral Coligny assured 
the Assembly that the principal discontents 
arose from persecutions for difference in reli- 
gion and presented a petition from Normandy 
praying for redress. The King objected to the 
petition because it bore no signatures of 
names. But Coligny replied: ''True; but if 
you will permit us to meet for the purpose, I 
will in one da}^ obtain 50,000 in Normandy 
alone.'' The resolution was finally carried in 
the Assembly by three votes, that citizens of 
France shall conform to the Romish Church 
or quit the kingdom, with leave to sell their 
estates. It was shown, however, by the Chan- 
cellor and the Huguenots, the unreasonable- 
ness of enforcing a resolution carried by only 
three votes; and the Assembly finally agreed 
to lay all the matters before an Assembly of 
the States to meet December 13, at Meaux, and 


introd . to be assisted by a national council. Shortly 
after this, in the month of September, Conde 
was beguiled and arrested by Guise on the 
charge of high treason, that he had excited the 
Huguenots of Dauphiny to rebellion. He was 
soon brought to trial and condemned to death, 
but the death of the young King, Francis II., 
December 5, 1560, prevented his execution. 
Francis Fraucis H. was succeeded by his younger 
D^^th brother, Charles IX., a youth of ten years of 
and ' age. During his reign (1560-74) the tolerant 
^^ix^^^ policy of Chancellor L 'Hopital for a time pre- 
King. vailed. The Queen Mother, conscious that the 
question of the regency would again revive, 
began to conciliate the Bourbon leaders; and 
yet carry on her deeply laid schemes in dis- 
guise. She at once pardoned Conde and set 
him at liberty, and later on made the King of 
Navarre, Lieutenant-general of the kingdom. 
1560. The States met December 13th, but ac- 
complished nothing which immediately con- 
cerned the Huguenots. Admiral Coligny, the 
King of Navarre, and the Prince of Conde 
were then urged to present a petition involving 
toleration to the young King. He referred it 
to the privy council who laid it before Parlia- 
Edict of ment. The result was the Edict of July, 1561, 
J"g^ which prohibited persecutions on account of 
religion, but forbade the exercise of any other 
than the Romish religion, either publicly or 
privately, under penalt}^ of imprisonment and 
confiscation. The passage of this law intensi- 
fied the feelings between the two great re- 
ligious parties. While the Romanists exulted, 
the Huguenots did not conceal their indigna- 
tion. Even Coligny, pacific and anxious to 
avert the impending calamity of civil war, 
declared plainly that the Edict could not be 


carried out. Meanwhile, as the strength of the introd. 
Huguenots grew more apparent, and their 
position more menacing, the necessity of con- 
ciliation became obvious to the court. 

The Queen Regent now turned to Coligny 
for advice. The Admiral counseled toleration; 
and to show its expediency, presented to her a 
list of 2,150 Protestant churches, that asked 
for freedom and protection in the exercise of 
their religion. From the organization of the 
first church in 1555, the Reformed had in- 
creased to 2,150 churches in about six years. 
The advice of Coligny was heeded by the 
Queen Mother, and the call of a conference 
was issued September 3, for the representa- 
tives of both religions to discuss freely before 
the King and Court their different doctrines, 
and the necessity of a reformation. 

The conference convened at Poissy, Septem- Confer- 
ber 9, 1561, and lasted about six weeks. Cardi- t?" ** 
nal Lorrame appeared as principal manager 
for the Romanists, supported by five other 
Cardinals, the Archbishop of Bourdeaux and 
Embrun, thirty-six Bishops and a number of 
theologians. Theodore Beza came over from 
Switzerland, as principal for the Reformers, 
supported by Peter Martyr Vermigli, eleven 
of the most accredited pastors, and twenty- 
two representatives. The young King pre- 
sided with his mother at his side, surrounded 
by the splendidly attired princes of the court, 
and the Roman representatives. A railing 
immediatel)^ in front cut them off from the Re- 
formers, and presented the appearance rather 
of a judicial enquiry than that of a free confer- 
ence. The meeting was opened by a speech 
from Chancellor L'Hopital which showed the 
Reformers that they did not meet their adver- 


introd. saries as they had demanded and expected on 
exactly equal terms; but which also showed 
the Romanists that they were not simply sit- 
ting in judgment, for their verdict would have 
no effect if it were not found perfectly im- 
partial and just. The word was then given 
to Beza. He appeared before the railing 
in the nobleman ^s black suit, and deliber- 
ately looking round upon the august array 
of Romanists, bowed respectfully to the 
young EjLQg and said: ''Sire, our help is in 
the name of the Lord, who made heaven 
and earth, ^^ and then knelt and prayed. The 
Queen Mother also knelt, and the Cardi- 
nals arose and uncovered. His prayer is still 
used in the French Reformed church at the 
opening of divine service. Beza^s long speech 
explained clearly the Huguenot faith, and 
elucidated the points of difference and agree- 
ment between the Romanists and Protestants. 
It was calm, cool, conciliatory, and was 
listened to with breathless attention, except- 
ing one interruption. When he exclaimed 
with raised hands and a loud voice, ' ' The body 
of Jesus Christ is as far from bread and wine 
as heaven is from earth," Cardinal Tournon 
jumped to his feet and cried out "Blasphem- 
avit!" and such a tumult arose among the pre- 
lates, that the Queen Mother herself had to 
interfere and impose quiet. Beza, however, 
remained calm, and continued his speech, 
which was printed the next day, and dis- 
tributed by thousands among friends and foes. 
On September 16, the second session was 
held. Cardinal Lorraine answered Beza in a 
proud speech, but adroit and impressive, 
which he refused for publication. After this 
the Romanists declined to continue the dis- 


cussions in public, and the remaining sessions introd . 
(September 24, 26, etc.) were consequently 
held with closed doors. In the session of 
September 26, Cardinal Lorraine cunningly- 
proposed that the Reformers subscribe to 
the Ausburg Confession, his policy being 
to show off the differences existing among 
the Reformers themselves. But it was as 
cunningly met by Beza, who asked him to 
subscribe his own name first, and on his 
refusal, Beza showed that it would accom- 
plish nothing unless the Romanists subscribed 
to it also. In the same session, a mixed 
committee offered a formula consensus to be 
accepted by both parties, which seemed satis- 
factory, but the doctors of the Sorbonne 
rejected it as heretical. In the session of Oc- 
tober 6, the Catholics presented a strictly 
Romish Confession and demanded the sub- 
scription of the Reformers. In the final ses- 
sion, October 17, they went even further, and 
demanded that all the churches and all the 
church property which the " heretics ^^ had 
taken possession of in the various provinces 
should be restored. The Conference dis- 
solved without any decision made by King and 
Council. During the time of the Conference, 
the financial pressure which arose compelled 
the King to lean to the Romanist, who could 
supply him the funds needed. Nevertheless, 
the Conference furnished the opportunity for 
the Protestants to publicly vindicate their re- 
ligious views. Beza preached repeatedly in 
Poissy and with great success during the sit- 
ting of the Conference, and remained in 
France about two years. 

The Huguenots now fell back upon the Edict 
of July, which prohibited persecution for re- 


introd. ligion^s Sake. Their meetings for public 
worship in the city of Paris were often very 
large, amounting to thousands, protected by 
armed men, the women being placed in the 

Finally, a council was called by the Queen 
Edict of Mother, and an edict published January 17, 
tion^" 1562, which conceded to the Huguenots the 
1562. liberty to meet for worship, without arms in 
all places outside of the walled towns. That 
Edict was the first recognition of the "New 
Religion '^ in France, giving it some degree of 
protection under the laws. It was the Magna 
Charta of Huguenot rights, and is known as 
the famous ' ' Edict of January. ' ' At this time , 
there were not less than 400,000 Huguenots in 
the kingdom, of whom only one thirtieth were 
the common-folk, and one-third were of the 
nobles — their strength being in the iwblesse. 
Their two centers were Languedoc in the 
South, and Orleannois in the middle of the 
country. A line drawn northwest to south- 
east, through a point half way between Paris 
and Orleans, would nearly give the northern 
limit of their success. In Normandy (north- 
west), Orleannoise (central), and Burgundy 
(Southeast), they had many churches, while 
north of the line they also had some churches 
in the Isle of France, and in Champagne. In 
Guyenne (southwest) , and throughout western 
France they had numerous communities. The 
little independent principality of Beam (ex- 
treme southwest), through the influence of 
Jean D'Albret, was entirely Huguenot. They 
had thus spread over considerably more than 
half of the country. 



The Huguenot Wars to Maintain their Rights 
and to Secure Full Religious Toleration 


While the Huguenots rejoiced in the liberty introd. 
granted them by the Edict of January, the 
Guises and their partisans became exasper-Huguenot 
ated and put forth renewed efforts against wars, 
them. Antony, the King of Navarre, was per- ^s^^-gs. 
suaded by the machinations of the Queen 
Mother, the pope's legate, and the Spanish 
embassadors, to forsake their cause and to es- 
pouse that of the Eomanists. He was induced 
by them to believe that such a course would 
greatly increase his chances for securing the 
succession of the crown, should it pass from 
the Valois line. His career was soon run, for 
he was wounded in the first siege undertaken 
against the Huguenots, and died. 

On March 1, 1562, the Duke of Guise, at- 1562. 
tended by a great retinue, was passing through ^^^^^^^ 
the town of Vassy, en route to Paris. At the vassy. 
time, there were assembled in a barn at Yassy 
about 1,200 of its Huguenot citizens engaged 
in divine worship. Some of the Guise men 
provoked a quarrel with the worshippers, and 
brought on a conflict. The Huguenots were 
attacked by the armed men, led by Guise him- 
self, and for an hour they fired, hacked, and 
stabbed the worsliippers in great carnage. 
Sixty Huguenots of both sexes were left dead 
on the spot, more than two hundred were 
severely wounded, and the rest made their es- 
cape. The Duke himself received a wound. 
This was the first bloodshed under the reign of 
Charles IX., and within less than two months 


introd. after the Edict of Toleration. Duke Guise 
sent for the local judge and severely repri- 
manded him for having permitted the Hugue- 
nots of Vassy to meet; and when the judge in- 
trenched himself behind the Edict of January, 
he became enraged, and striking the hilt of 
his sword with his hand, said, ''The sharp edge 
of this will soon cut your edict to pieces.'* 
The Vassy massacre was the match applied to 
the charge ready to explode, the signal to the 
Romanists to rise in mass against the heretics, 
and to the Huguenots a warning for their lives. 

First rt was the cause of the first war of the Hugue- 

.si'a. »ots. (1362-63). 

Admiral Coligny and the Prince of Conde 
were the Huguenot leaders; Constable Mont- 
morency, the Duke of Guise, and Marshal St. 
Andre were the principal Romanists' generals. 

Rouen September 11, 1562, Rouen fortified by the 

Taken. Hugueuots was attacked, and after much 
bloodshed taken by assault. For eight days 
the town was plundered by the Romanists' 
soldiers. Here it was that Antony, King of 
Navarre, fell. On December 19, a battle was 
fought at Dreux, in which after a terrible 
struggle the Huguenots yielded. The com- 
manders of each army, Conde and Mont- 
morency, were taken prisoners, and St. Andre 
fell in battle. The prisoners were immedi- 
1563- ately exchanged. The Duke of Guise next 
marched against Orleans, but was assassi- 
nated in his own camp by a fanatic named 
Poltrot, February 18, 1563, before he at- 
Peaceof tacked that Protestant stronghold. The 
Amboise.Q^ggj^ Mother, realizing the loss sustained in 
Duke Guise, and informed of a threatened in- 
vasion of the English on the coast of Nor- 
mandy, concluded the peace of Amboise, 


March 19, by which the Huguenots were again introd. 
granted the privilege of the Edict of January 
with several additions. 

The two armies now united to beat back the 
English. As soon as that matter was settled, 
and Catherine de Medici could dispense with 
the aid of the Huguenots, she restricted their 
privileges, and began to plot their extermina- 
tion. The secret treaty between her son, 
Henry U. and Philip, King of Spain, in the 
spring of 1559, and its execution thwarted by 
Henry's untimely death, and which she had 
never ceased to cherish, she now hoped to be 
able to execute. She and the young King 
spent 1564-65 in a tour through the provinces 
bordering on Germany. At the close of the 
tour, they were met at Bayonne by the Queen 
of Spain, the eldest sister of the King, and 
the Duke of Alva. There it was planned that Plot to 
Charles IX. should act in concert with Philip ^^^^' 
of Spain to exterminate the Huguenots. Alva Hugue- 
proposed that Charles should immediately ^°gg 
seize the chief men of the Huguenots, and 
strike off their heads, but Catherine thought 
the proposition prematurely unwise. In 1566, 
she convened all the thirteen Parliaments of 
the kingdom at Maulins, and after all the 
affairs of state had been arranged, she at- 
tempted to reconcile the aspirants to the 
crown. Failing in the attempt, she became 
more exasperated than ever, and ordered both 
parties to quit the court, retaining however 
Marshal Montgomery and Cardinal Lorraine, 
who originall}^ proposed the secret plot to ex- 
terminate the Huguenots. At this time the 
German Protestant princes were induced by 
Admiral Coligny to send an embassy to 
Charles IX. to entreat him to allow the Hugue- 


introd. nots full religious liberty. The embassy and 
the bold language of Coligny and Conde ir- 
1567. ritated the King. In the summer of 1567, at 
an Assembly of the Huguenots held at St. 
Valery, they learned of the determination of 
the court to arrest, and put to death if possible 
Coligny and Conde, and of other severe 
measures which it contemplated. The Hugue- 
nots became alarmed and held a conference at 
Chatillon in September, in which they re- 
solved to prepare for war in all ways, and if 
possible to seize the young King and his 
mother who were at Monceaux. Their coun- 
sels were betraved to Catherine, who with all 
the court, fled to Paris, closely pressed by 
Conde and Coligny : the Cardinal Lorraine lost 
his carriage in the stampede and fled by by- 
^war^ paths. Paris was now besieged. This began 
1567-68. the second war of the Huguenots (^36"/- 68). 

After a siege of a month on the capital, 
Conde and Montmorency clashed in a great 
battle, November 10, 1567, at St. Dennis. 
Two thousand seven hundred Huguenots 
fought against twenty thousand royal troops. 
Montmorency was mortally wounded and died 
the next day. The victory was drawn. The 
Huguenots remained one day to care for their 
dead and wounded, and then fell back into 
Lorraine, where they were reinforced January 
1568. 11, 1568, by 10,000 German allies under Prince 
John Casimer. With his army replenished, 
Conde again threatened Paris in the following 
month, and the Queen Mother in her flight 
Treaty of from the city, offered the treaty of Long- 
juSu. jumeau, which was signed March 27, 1568, re- 
establishing the terms of the Amboise treaty, 
and is known as the little peace of Longjumeau. 
Catherine gave no regard to this treaty, which 


was made to wrest the Huguenots from the ad- introd. 
vantages of a victory, and to give the Romans 1568. 
time to better prepare for war. Persecution 
went on as usual. The Romish pulpits encour- 
aged by the court proclaimed that faith need 
not be kept with heretics, and that to murder 
them was just, pious and useful for salvation. 
More than 3,000 Huguenots were either assas- 
sinated or murdered in less than three months. 
The Chancellor L'Hopital, on account of the 
pacific measures he advocated, had become 
obnoxious to the court, and was dismissed or 
forced to resign, and the seizure of Conde and 
Coligny was again resolved on, who were 
warned by some of the royal officers to flee for 
their lives. Conde and Coligny assembled 
forces in September at La Rochelle, a strong- 
hold of the Huguenots, and were closely 
followed by the royal blood-hunters. The 
Queen of Navarre and her son. Prince Henry, 
being warned by Coligny hastened to join 
them, bringing some money, and 3,000 in- 
fantry and 400 cavalry. The royal troops 
were kept at bay by the Huguenot generals, 
until La Rochelle was safely fortified. Cather- 
ine, finding herself outwitted in the execution 
of her diabolical designs, once more resorted to 
pacify the Huguenots into submission by pub- 
lishing another edict, declaring the willing- 
ness of the government to protect Protestants 
in the future, and to redress injustice to them 
in the past. But having been so often deceived 
by her former edicts, the Huguenots passed 
this one unnoticed. That greatly enraged her, 
and she at once promulgated other edicts, 
which revoked all former ones, and forbade 
under penalty of death the exercise of any re- 
ligion save the Roman Catholic. The Hugue- 


introd. nots regarded lier acts as a public declaration 

of war against the Protestant religion, and al- 

Third readv fortified in their strongholds, and with 

1568^0. recent assistance from Germany and England, 

they began their ihird civil war Jot religious 

rights, (1^68 -jo). 

On March 13, 1569, the two armies, with 
Conde commanding the Huguenots, and the 
Duke of Anjou at the head of the Catholics, 
met in battle at Jarnac, near La Rochelle, 
The Huguenots were defeated, with Conde 
wounded and made a prisoner, whom Baron 
De Montesquin, captain of Anjou 's guards, 
murdered in cold blood, when he recog- 
nized him in camp, sitting helpless and faint 
from his wound. The Huguenot army was 
then entrusted to Coligny. The Admiral to 
encourage the army urged Jean D'Albret, 
Queen of Navarre, to give them her son as 
a princely leader. She hastened to Cognac 
where the army was encamped, and pre- 
sented her son. Prince Henry, then in his 16th 
year, and Henry, son of the fallen Conde, who 
was still younger, as leaders of the cause under 
Coligny. Ha^dng received reinforcements 
from Grermany, the army besieged Poitiers, 
but was badlv defeated in a battle at Moncon- 
tour, October 3, 1569, with the loss of 8,000 
men; and only the military blunders of Anjou 
saved the Huguenot army from ruin and com- 
plete overthrow. The court now thought the 
Huguenots in that part of the kingdom an- 
nihilated. But they received means from 
England, Switzerland, and Germany, and the 
court was surprised in the spring of 1570 to 
find them again in arms, crossing the Rhone, 
and routing the royalists. The Huguenots, 
becoming encouraged by the news of the sue- 


cess of Prince Henry of Navarre (in the sick- introd . 
ness of Coligny), in defending La Roclielle, 
and in holding his own in battles against 
Marshal Cope and Anjou, now laid siege to 
Paris. The court became alarmed and treatedTreaty of 
for peace. The Huguenots were enabled, ^.^^111- 
August 8, 1570, to dictate the treaty of St. en-Laye. 
Germain-en-Laye, by which they were guar- ^570. 
anteed full liberty of worship outside of Paris, 
equality before the law, and admission to the 
Universities. Thev were also to hold for two 
years four towns: — La Rochelle, which kept 
the sea open for assistance from England ; La 
Charite, which kept the passage of the Loire; 
Montauban, which commanded the frontiers 
of Languedoc; and Cognac, which opened the 
way into Angoumois; and if the treaty was 
violated, they were not to be given up at the 
expiration of the stipulated time. The terms 
of this treaty were kept, which gave France a 
state of quiet for two years, but only to be suc- 
ceeded by the outbreak of another storm. 

The King, Charles LX. wrote the Pope 
some few years prior to this that, ''A 
fourth part of the kingdom is separated from 
the church, which fourth part consists of 
gentlemen, men of letters, chief burgesses in 
cities, and such of the common people as have 
seen most of the world, and are practised in 
arms. So that the said separated persons have 
no lack of force, having among them an in- 
finite number of gentlemen, and many old 
soldiers of long experience in war. Neither do 
they lack good council, having among them 
three parts of the men of letters. Neither do 
they lack money, having among them a great 
part of the good wealthy families, both of the 
nobility and the tier de etaty The numerical 


introd. and influential increase of the Huguenots and 

1572. the physical and mental developments of the 

abilities of the young Prince, Henry of 

Navarre, the Bourbon heir to the throne, 

began now to alarm the Queen Mother. 

Failing so far to crush them by force, she 
sought to accomplish her object by treachery 
and a general massacre. In her artful manner 
Mar- she proposed marriages between her daughter, 
p^^ses Marguerite of Valois and the Prince of 
°^^ "Navarre; between the young Prince of Conde 
and the third heiress of Cleves; and even 
between Coligny and the Countess of Egree- 
ment. By the marriage of her daughter to 
Prince Henry, the kingdom would become 
united, the Guise claim to the crown defeated, 
and the succession would fall to her own 
house; and Henrv would have his chances en- 
larged to regain the inheritance of his ances- 
tors from the King of Spain. She hoped to 
persuade Henry to become a Roman Catholic 
which would help her to destroy the Hugue- 
nots. The King, Charles IX., urged the mar- 
riage and promised 400,000 crowns as the 
dowry of his sister. The young prince, Henry, 
was elated over the prospects set before him, 
and the marriage contract was signed April 11, 
1572. The nuptials were to be celebrated in 
Paris, and as many Huguenot noblemen as 
could be induced were put under a solemn 
oath to attend them, and an oath was given for 
their safety. The reception of Jean D'Albret, 
Queen of Navarre, of her children, her ser- 
vants, the members of her court, the suite of 
Prince Henry, and the attending Huguenot 
noblemen, in Paris, was all that expectation 
^^^^^°^ could fancy. During the splendid prepara- 
D'Arb?et.tions, the Queen of Navarre died after an 


illness of five days; not without suspicion of introd. 
poison, and her son became Kang of Navarre. 
The court of France went into mourning over 
the Queen's death, but the preparations for 
the wedding went steadily on. The day came, 
August 18, 1572, and the marriage of Margue- 
rite to Henry, King of Navarre, was solem- 
nized on a platform in front of the principal 
entry of the church of Paris, Cardinal Lor- 
raine officiating, and leaving off the Mass by 
express order of the King that he n^ght please 
the Protestants. The festivities continued day 
after day. On Friday, August 22, Coligny 
was invited by the King to attend a council at 
the Louvre, and from there he went to witness 
a game between the King and Guise, and be- 
tween two Huguenot gentlemen at the Tennis 
court. As he returned to his place of lodging 
(No. 144, Rue Rivole, at present), while walk- coUgny 
ing slowly up a narrow street, he was shot ^^°^ 
twice; one ball shattering his hand, and the 1572!*' 
other lodging in his right arm near the 
shoulder. The shot was fired from the house 
of the preceptor of the Guises. The house was 
searched, but the assassin had escaped; and a 
man was seen riding in full haste from the 
King's stables. When the news of the assault 
reached the King, he uttered his usual pas- 
sionate oaths, and declared that the house of 
the Guises should be ransacked for the as- 
sassin, though he himself had offered 50,000 
crowns for Coligny 's head. He visited the Ad- 
miral, and his apparent sympathy covered up 
all suspicion of any knowledge that a massacre 
had been planned. The Huguenot Lords de- 
sired now to leave the city, but King Charles 
explained the assassination as an act of malice, 
fostered by a grudge of the Guises, who had 


introd . falsely accused Coligny of the death of the late 
Duke of Guise. The Admiral refused to leave 
the city, saying, "By so doing, I must show 
either fear or distrust. My honor would be 
injured by one, my king by the other. I should 
be again obliged to have recourse to civil war; 
and I would rather die than see the miseries I 
have seen, and suffer the distress I have al- 
ready suffered." Many of the nobles retired 
to the country and suburbs of the city. The 
opportune time for a massacre was swiftly 
passing, and the plot of Catherine and Charles 
IX. was not yet executed. To hasten up mat- 
ters, a council was called to meet late in the 
afternoon of Saturday, the 23d. The discus- 
sions in it were heated. The Huguenots were 
leaving the city, and had not attempted to 
avenge the assassination of the Admiral, 
which would have been a plea for the massa- 
cre. The time was now come for action, and 
yet the court hesitated and were undeter- 
mined how the work should begin. Catherine, 
to tone up Charles, had told him, "Another 
King is chosen, and you will soon be murdered 
to make way for him"; and so in frenzy he de- 
manded of the court the extinction of the 
Mass^a^cre jj^g^ig^ols^ for the Safety of his own life. The 
Barthoio- decision of the council was at last reached, that 
™^^'s a massacre should begin the next morning at 
Aug^l4, the ringing of the bells for early prayers of St. 
1572. Bartholomew's day, and that the work should 
be entrusted to the Duke of Guise, the Duke of 
Anjou (brother of the King), Aumele, Mont- 
pensier and Marshal Tavannes. The next 
morning, Sunday, August 24, 1572, the bells 
sounded about twilight, before the usual time. 
The two Guises rushed into the streets of 
Paris with armed men, and at the sound of a 


pistol shot from a window of the palace, (the introd. 
signal for the butchery), they hastened to the 
house of Coligny, who was lying in his 
chamber, suffering from his wounds. The 
very officer of the guard, set to protect him, 
broke down the door for the murderers to enter 
the house. The Swiss soldiers on the stairs, 
set to guard him within, were soon borne 
down and slain. The murderers began break- 
ing down his suite doors, and the noise 
awakened the Admiral. He sent a young 
man to inquire into the cause of the con- 
fusion. The man hearing the clash of arms 
in the passage, and the wild yell for blood 
from the streets, returned and cried out, "My 
Lord! God calls us to himself." ''The 
Admiral threw on his loose gown, and bid his 
secretary read prayers, according to his daily 
custom and the form of the Huguenots. The 
thumping at the doors of his chamber pre- 
venting worship, he turned calmly to his 
attendants, 'Save yourselves, my friends; all 
is over with me. I have long been prepared 
for death, ^ and then kneeled down to his 
private devotions. The doors were broken, 
and Berne rushing in cried out, 'Where is 
Coligny?' 'I am he,' was the bold reply, coiigny 
The ruffian drove his sword through his heart. ^"'^■ 
The soldiers that followed gave each a stab 
to the lifeless corpse. Berne cried from a 
window, 'The work is done.' 'Very well,' 
said Guise, 'but Angouleme will not believe 
it unless he sees him at his feet,' A body 
thrown from the window sprinkled the party 
with its blood; Guise, with his handkerchief, 
wiped the blood and filth from the face of 
the dead hody and pronounced it Coligny. 
His revenge not yet satisfied, the head was 
cut off and sent to the Queen Mother. The 


introd. domestics were all slain. The slaughter now 
1572. began in all parts of the city. Marshal Ta- 
vannes was heard to shout, 'Kill, Kill! Bleed- 
ing is as wholesome in August as in May.^ " 
Henry of Navarre and Conde were hurried by 
soldiers into the presence of King Charles, and 
as they passed on from the Louvre where they 
were lodging saw several of their gentlemen 
murdered before their eyes on the streets. 
The King ordered them with oaths to abjure 
their religion. They declined. With his eyes 
flashing with rage, he bawled out to them, 
*'The Mass, or death, or the bastile.^' They 
abjured, and were put under guard. Charles 
himself was seen at the windows of his palace 
with a musket in his hands, and was heard to 
cry, ''Kill! Kill! you Huguenots." The mas- 
sacre was kept up through the day. The head- 
less body of Coligny was dragged through the 
streets of the city, then thrown into the Seine, 
and finally taken out and hanged by the feet 
upon the gallows, and a fire kindled under it. 
The King and his court went later to see the 
mutilated body. One of the courtiers re- 
marked, "It smells ill." Charles, the King, 
replied: "The body of a dead enemy always 
smells well." In the several days of excite- 
ment and pellmell. Marshal Montgomery took 
down the abused body, and sent it to Montau- 
ban for interment. A description of this mas- 
sacre is given by De Thou, as follows: "The 
very streets and passages resounded with the 
groans of the dying and of those who were 
about to be murdered. The bodies of the slain 
were thrown out of the windows, and with 
them the courts and chambers of the houses 
were filled. The dead bodies of others were 
dragged through the streets; and the blood 


flowed down the channels in such torrents that introd. 
it seemed to empty itself into the neighboring 1572. 
river. In short, an innumerable multitude of 
men, women, and children were involved in 
one common destruction, and all the gates and 
entrances to the King's palace were besmeared 
with blood." It is estimated that not less 
than 10,000 persons, of whom 500 were leaders 
of the Huguenots, fell in Paris alone ; and the 
total throughout the kingdom has been esti- 
mated by De Thou at 30,000, by Sully at 60,- 
000 and by Perefixe, a popish historian, at 
100,000. Orders were sent to other parts of 
the kingdom to follow the example of the capi- 
tal, but in some instances they were not 
obeyed; and in other places — Laucerre, Pre- 
vos, La Rochelle, Montauban, and Msmes — 
the Huguenots defended themselves. 

After the unbridled rage of the massacre 
had subsided, remorse followed with retribu- 
tion on its heels. Sully has recorded the fol- 
lowing statement, concerning the King: 
"From the evening of the 24th of August he 
was observed to groan involuntarily at the re- 
cital of the thousands of acts of cruelty made 
boastingly in his presence." He also records 1572. 
the following confession which the King made ^°°^^f 
to his own surgeon, a Huguenot, who lived charies 
with him in great familiarity: '^ Ambrose, I ^• 
know not what has happened to me these two 
or three days past; but I feel my mind and 
body as much at enmity with each other as if I 
were seized with a fever. Sleeping or waking, 
the murdered Huguenots seem ever present to 
my eyes, with ghostly faces, and weltering in 
blood. I wish the innocent and helpless had 
been spared." The infidel Voltaire in his essay 
on the civil wars of France says that, "The 


iptrod . King, soon after the Bartholomew Massacre, 
was attacked by a strange malad}^, which car- 
ried him off at the end of two years. His 
blood was always oozing out, forcing its way 
through the pores of the skin — an incompre- 
hensible malady, against which the art and 
skill of the physicians were unavailing. This, ' ' 
he adds, ''was regarded as an effect of the 
Divine vengeance." 

All Catholic France rejoiced in thought that 
the Huguenots, according to the ad\i.ce of 
Alva of Spain, had been exterminated by the 
one blow. But when the royal troops were 
ordered out to take military possession of 
their strongholds, to"v\Tis and villages, and to 
complete their subjugation, and while the 
court was revelling in expectation of grand 
success, suddenly the news came that the 
Huguenots were in arms again, as the resur- 

Fourth rection of the dead to the Athenians. Thus 

J5^2^y3 began the fourth war of the Hiigtienots (^S72-y^). 
The Duke of Anjou led the royal troops 
against the forts in the hands of the Hugue- 
nots. He made an attack upon La Rochelle, 
but was repulsed, and forced to retire after 
losing nearly his whole army. The cities in 
the South made a tenacious and heroic re- 
sistance, a large part of the royal forces rather 
sympathizing with them. The Duke of Anjou 
becoming King of Poland, peace was con- 
cluded, June 24, 1573, and the Huguenots re- 
ceived as security the towns of Montauban, 
Nimes, and La Rochelle, besides enjoyment of 
freedom of conscience, though not of worship 
Poutique throughout the kingdom. Feeling their weak- 

Party. j^^gg f^om the massacre, they now Degar: to 
unite with the Politiques. These were a large 
body of French gentlemen who loved the 


honor of their country rather than their reli- introd . 
gious party, and who, though Catholics, were 1573- 
yet moderate and tolerant. While these two 
parties were drawing together the Duke of 
Alencon, the youngest son of Catherine and 
Francis II., becoming vexed at his mother ^s 
neglect of him, (as heir presumptive to the 
throne, he thought he deserved better treat- 
ment), sought to give himself consideration 
by drawing towards the new and so called 
middle party. The party made a move to 
depose the Queen Mother and the Guises, and 
to place on the throne, as chief of the Ro- 
manists, the Duke of Alencon, who had made 
common cause with it. The leaders had ar- 
ranged with Henry of Navarre and Conde for 
the humiliation of Austria, and only the pre- 
mature rising of the Protestants defeated the 
plan. Catherine, who was ever on the alert 
and nothing was safe while she was moving, 
and as it was seen that Eang Charles would 
soon die, took the opportunity to lay hands on 
the middle party. She arrested Alencon and 
Henry of Navarre, and Conde fled to Germany, 
where he returned to Protestantism, affirm- 
ing that his abjuration had been wrested from 
hini. It was about this time that the fifth 
civil war began, (i^y^-'/d). ^^. 

Charles IX. died in misery, May, 1574, at ^574-76. 
the court of Vincennes. He had "never held cha?ie°s^ 
up his head since St. Bartholomew's Massa- ix., 
ere. The visions of Coligny and of the mur-cardLi 
dered Huguenots haunted him by day and Lorraine, 
terrified his dreams by night. Often he "would '57'*- 
awaken from sleep and cry out in tears, ''The 
murdered people will not leave me.'' Medi- 
cine could not soothe his sleep, nor art relieve 
his agony. He died in pains unrehevable, 


introd. covered with a bloody sweat, and in sobs and 
1574- tears over the murdered Huguenots. And 
seven months later, December 23d, Cardinal 
Lorraine died also. Both of them bitter ene- 
mies of the Huguenots followed their victims 
to the bar of God, with no reward in this life 
for their cruelty, and nothing to expect in the 
life beyond, save the mercy of their judge. 

Henry The ill-omened crown of Charles IX. fell 
™- to Henry of Anjou (Henry III.), King of 
Poland, the next brother, his mother's favor- 
ite, and the worst of a bad breed. When he 
heard of his brother's death, he was only too 
eager to slip away from Poland like a culprit 
and hasten to Paris, lest the French crown 
should slip from him. And he even dallied 
with the pleasures of Italy for months after- 
wards. An attempt was made to draw him 
over to the Politiques, but it failed. He at- 
tached himself to the Guises, and plunged into 
the grossest dissipation, while he posed before 
the people as a good and zealous Romanist. 
The Politiques and Huguenots made a com- 

1575. pact in 1575, at Milhaud on the Tarn, and 
chose the Prince of Conde as their head, who 
returned from Germany, March 1576, with an 
army, and was joined by the Duke of Alencon, 
who was at enmity with the King. About the 
same time, Henry, King of Navarre, while on 
a hunting expedition, escaped from the vigi- 
lance kept over him by the court; renounced 
the Catholicism forced upon him on St. Bar- 
tholomew's day, and joined them. He was 
making rapid progress in the South. Against 
this new movement the Romanists seemed 
powerless. The court became alarmed and 

BeauUeu ^^^1^7 coucludcd the pcace of Beaulieu, May, 

1576. 1576, with terms unusually favorable to both 


Politiques and Huguenots: — for the latter, introd. 
free worship throughout France, except Paris, 
without restriction as to time and place, unless 
the nobleman on whose lands it was pro- 
posed to meet should object; for the former, to 
Alencon, a large central district; to Conde, 
Picardy; and to Henry of Navarre, Guyenne. 

The Guises, thus frustrated in their political 
schemes, now organized (1576) an association Hoiy 
called the "Holy League,'' for the defense of league, 
the Romanists' interests. It was supported ^^^ " 
by the King, the Pope, the Parliament, the 
Monks and King Philip II. of Spain, but not 
by the liberal minded Catholics. The head of 
the League was Henry, Duke of Guise, who 
hoped to succeed to the throne of Prance, 
either by deposing the corrupt and feeble 
Henry HI., or by seizing the throne when the 
King's debaucheries should have brought him 
to the grave. The high Catholics, especially 
the Jesuits, now in the first flush of credit and 
success, supported him warmly. The head- 
quarters of the League was at first in Picardy, 
in opposition to the establishment of Conde as 
governor of that province. It was soon found, 
however, that Paris was its natural center; 
from which it spread all over France. The 
States refused to furnish means to carry out 
the measures of the League. 

At the convocation of the States-General, at 
Blois, 1576, opinion was found to be as much 
divided therein, as in the country, and no re- 
lief was brought to France. At that convoca- 
tion the King was induced to proclaim himself 
head of the League. This gave rise to the sixth 
sixth civil war^ which lasted only a few months, war. 

(1577). ^577. 


introd. The King, finding the States unwilling to 

1577. supply the money necessary to the Leaguers 
interests, and the Romanists being divided 

Treaty among themselves, the peace of Bergerac 
Bergerac^^^ signed, September, 1577, which reintro- 
"duced discriminations as to cities wherein 
Protestants might worship; entitled noble- 
men to have services in their castles; gave 
to Protestants, as in the previous peace, 
eight cities as pledges of the treaty's faith- 
ful execution; and instituted mixed courts to 
adjudicate cases arising out of differences in 
religion. It was a peace made with the Poli- 
tiques and Huguenots, which was ineffectual 
and settled nothing. The League openly re- 
fused to be bound by it, and continued a har- 
assing, objectless warfare. The Duke of 

1578. Anjou (formerly of Alencon), in 1578, de- 
serted the court party, towards which his 
mother had drawn him, and made friends with 
the Calvinists in the Netherlands, and the 
Southern Provinces named him "Defender of 
their Liberties." 

Tn 1579, the sevejith civil war^ called the 

Seventh Gallant 's war, broke out, which also lasted 

^*g-^ a few months, (1579-80). During this war the 

^^^^ * League had it all their own way. The war was 

occasioned by the Guises, who induced the 

King to demand back the towns given to 

the Protestants as securities, and to violate the 

treaty in various ways. Conde answered by 

taking Lafere in November, 1579, and Henry 

of Navarre by taking Cahors in April, 1580. 

Peace of The Duke of Anjou, having been offered 

^^^^' sovereignty over the United Provinces in the 

Netherlands, and intending to employ their 

forces in the conflict, and the Huguenots 

having sustained disasters with the Roman- 


ists, peace was concluded at Flex, September introd. 
12, 1580, by which the Huguenots were to 
retain their strongholds six years longer. 
Quite a long interval of peace now followed. 
Anjou in the Netherlands could only show his 
weakness as nothing went well with him. On 
the failure of his attempt to take Antwerp 
(1583), and having utterly wearied out his 
friends, he at last fled to France, where he was 
taken ill with consumption and died in 1584. ^584. 
His death changed at once the complexion of 
the succession of the throne. As Henry III., 
the King, was childless, Henry of Bourbon, the 
Huguenot King of Navarre, became heir to 
the throne of France. The prospects that a 
''heretic" might succeed, caused the "Holy 
League" to spring afresh into life, under the 
influences of the Guises, the strict Catholic 
members of the Parliament, the fanatical 
clergy, and the ultra conservative party. The 
Guises supported by King Philip II. of Spain, 
made war upon King Henry IH., in which 
the Huguenots took no part. The King hesi- 
tated to meet the Guises with promptness, 
and the result was that he was humiliated and 
forced to sign the Edict of Nemours, July 17, Edict of 
1585, by which all modes of worship, excepting^^™g^"' 
that of the Catholic church, were forbidden 
throughout France; all Huguenot ministers 
were to leave the country in one month; and 
all Huguenots in six months; and all previous 
privileges granted them were declared for- 
feited. The Huguenots instead of fleeing the 
country, protected themselves, until Henry of 
Navarre and the Prince of Conde prepared to 
resist the execution of the edict by force of 
arms. England sent them money and Ger- 
many furnished them 30,000 soldiers. 


introd. They took the field in 1587, and be^an the 

eighth war of the Huguenots^ called "the War 

Eighth of the Three Henrys'^; i. e. of Henry III., 

War. Henry of Guise, and Henry of Navarre (1587- 
1587-98. gg>j^ 

In this war there was real life. Henry of 
Navarre rose nobly to the level of his troubles. 
He won the battle of Coutras, October 8, 1587, 
in which the Duke of Joyeuse, one of the favor- 
ites of Henry m., was defeated and killed. 
This was the first pitched battle the Hugue- 
nots ever won, and it made so deep an impres- 
sion upon their enemies, that subsequently the 
very sight of the Protestant soldiers kneeling 
in prayer before joining battle, as they did 
there, struck terror into the heart of the Cath- 
olic soldiers. The Duke of Guise, however, 
defeated the German allies at Vimory and 
Auneau, and they were obliged to leave the 
country. Guise then seized the power of state, 
and marched in triumph to Paris, in spite of 
the orders and opposition of King Henry IH., 
Edict of and compelled him to sign the edict of reunion 
Rouin. Qf Rouin, July 19, 1588, for the forcible sub- 
mission of the Huguenots, and the exclusion 
of Henry of Navarre from the succession to 
the throne of France; and in which he also 
named the Duke of Guise, Lieutenant-General 
of the Kingdom. It now became evident to 
King Henrj^ III. that the aim of Guise was to 
secure the throne for himself, and while the 
King feigned acquiescence, he determined on 
his assassination. In order to gain time, he 
called Parliament to meet at Blois, and per- 
suaded Guise to attend it. Infatuated, as was 
CoKgny who fell by his order, the Duke could 
see no danger from the Kjng, although he was 
warned time and again of it. On December 23, 


1588, the King selected nine men from his i ntroa . 
guard and gave to each a poniard, saying; "It 1588. 
is an execution of justice I command you to 
make on the greatest criminal of my kingdom, 
whom all laws human and divine permit me to 
punish; and not having the ordinary means of 
justice in my power, I authorize you by the 
right inherent in my royal authority to strike 
the blow." When Henry of Guise entered the 
council chamber, six daggers pierced his heart. 
He groaned and died. His brother, the Cardi- 
nal, who had encouraged the designs to usurp 
the throne, was heard to say; "I will hold the 
King^s head between my knees till the tonsure 
shall be performed at the Monastery of the 
Capuchins.'^ He was also assassinated, and 
the remaining brothers fled. The assassina- 
tion of Guise was universally condemned. The 
University declared the people free from alle- 
giance to the house of Valois. The King re- 
plied that it was the only means of preserving 
the crown, or his own head. It did not, how- 
ever, bring the King any solace or power. 
His mother, Catherine de Medici, died Janu- Death of 
ary 5, 1589. From the death of her husband, ^*.*^' 
Francis II., December, 1560, she had practi- 1589." 
cally been Regent of the Ejngdom. During 
the time, she had hated the Guises, the Bour- 
bons and the Huguenots — her enmities in- 
creasing with her years. Skilled in intrigue, 
unscrupulous in design, of violent passions, 
without moral principle, with great powers of 
persuasion and with quick penetration, she 
used her abilities for mischief, and produced 
a condition of affairs in France, which she 
could not control — the destruction of her de- 
sires and her good name. On her death bed, 
she advised Henry III., ' ' To cease from perse- 


introd. cuting liis subjects and to grant toleration in 

1589. religion." If she was in earnest in giving 

such advice, she sentenced her life principles; 

and if still dissembling, her ruling passion was 

strong in death. She died unlamented. 

After her death, the power of the League 
party seemed strong as ever. The Duke of 
Mayenne, Guise's brother, entered Paris and 
declared open war against the King; and 
Henry III., after some hesitation, had to throw 
himself, in the spring of 1589, into the hands 
of his cousin, Henry of Navarre. The Poli- 
tique party now rallied to the King, and the 
Huguenots were staunch for their old leader, 
of Navarre. Things looked less dark than in 
the previous summer. 

The Swiss and Germans once more entered 
Northeast France, and the Leaguers, unable to 
stand before them and the armies of the two 
kings, fell back on Paris. The defense of 
the city was languid, the populace missing the 
Duke of Guise ; and hence the moderate party 
never extinguished rose with new strength. 
Henry At tMs juucturc, whcu all sccmcd hopeful to 
Assassin- ^^^ royalist against the League, Henry IH. 
ated. was assassiuatcd, August 1, 1589, by a half- 
witted monk, James Clement. The monk was 
introduced to the king, on the plea that he had 
a letter of importance for him. The King re- 
ceived the letter, and after reading a part of 
it, he arose, when the monk stabbed him in the 
abdomen with a poisoned knife, from whose 
wound he died in a few days. Before he 
closed his eyes and ended the long role of his 
vices and crimes, he commended Henry of 
Navarre to his courtiers as heir to the throne, 
and exhorted him to become a Roman Catholic. 


Tlius did the Orleans branch of the house of i^trod. 
Valois go down in crime and shame ; and dur- 
ing its supremacy of nearly seventy-five years, vaiois 
there was not a single monarch of it friendly g°"^! 
to the Reformed, but every one shed their 
blood and labored for their destruction. 

At this time the Huguenots had exercise of 
their worship in about 3,500 Chateaux, and in 
about 200 towns, chiefly in the South and 
West. In most parts of the North, except 
Paris and around Rouen and Amiens, they had 
one place for worship in each bailliage. From 
this time the throne of France remained prac- 
tically vacant for about five j^ears. 

The heroism of Henry of Navarre, the loss 
of strength in the Catholic powers, and the 
want of a vigorous head to the League, con- 
tributed to sustain the Bourbon in his arduous 
struggles. The civil wars were not over. 
The Politiques could not at first cast in their 
lot with the Huguenot chieftain, but offered to 
confer on him the title of Commander-in-chief, 
and reserved the question of the succession to 
the throne, giving him to understand that if 
he would become a Roman Catholic, they were 
his. The League party was pledged against 
him. So Henry at first had little more than ciaim- 
the Huguenots at his back. There were other ^^Jg°^ 
formidable claimants to the throne — Charles Throne. 
II., Duke of Guise; the wife of Philip II., 
King of Spain; and the Cardinal of Bourbon, 
proclaimed as Charles X., for the Guises. 
Against these claimants and his partisan op- 
ponents in the kingdom, Henry of Navarre had 
to wage war and fight his way for five years to 
the throne. They were the great days of 
Henry of Navarre. He bore himself through- 
out the long struggle at his best. In the life of 


iptrod . the camps, and in the excitements of the bat- 
tlefields and in the flashes of genius with which 
he fought successfully against heavy odds, he 
showed himself a hero, who strove for a great 
cause, that of European freedom as well as his 
own crown. As the conflicts neared their end, 
and he had proven himself master of the situa- 
tion against home and foreign foes, the feeling 
prevailed throughout France that were the 
King of Navarre a Roman Catholic, he should 
be a king of whom all France would be proud. 
He debated the question seriously, and con- 
sulted earnestly with Sully, the greatest 
statesman of the age, who advised him to 
make the change, and the crown would be his, 
and all the affairs of state would eventually be- 
come settled. He at last declared publicly that 
he would perform his abjuration, and named 
the date and the church of St. Denis for the 
ceremony. According to the appointment, 
Sabbath, July 23, 1593, he for the second time 
abjured his Protestant faith for that of Ro- 
Henry ofmauism, and was solemnly crowned as Henry 
^Sr ^^•' ^^^^ ^^ France, at Chartres, February 17, 
1594.' 1594. That his abjuration was sincere, it is 
impossible to believe; for he was not only edu- 
cated a Protestant, but was one of the clearest 
heads of his age. More than once he was 
heard to sav, with his usual incurable out- 
spokenness, that the step was taken to insure 
Henry's the Freucli cro\\Ti. And his actions so plainly 
'^^tiJn^' coincided with the Protestant faith in all his 
Insincere. foreign policics — opposiug Rome, Spain, the 
Catholic League in Germany, and favoring 
England, the Netherlands, the Protestant 
Union in Germany — that it came to be said by 
the opposite party, that the only means of 
preventing France from becoming the head 


of Protestant Europe was the assassination of ^°trod . 
the King, which was finally accomplished. 
ffis abjuration, therefore, was simply an act 
of shrewd policy, many Roman Catholics not 
believing in its sincerity. It had the desired 
effect slowly but surely. The longing for 
peace was strong, and it took the heart out of 
the opposition and seemed to remove the last 
obstacle. The Huguenots little as they liked 
it could not oppose the step, and hoped to 
profit by their champion's improved position. 

On the 12th of December, 1594, Henry held 
an Assembly of the Reformed at Monte, and 
assured them that there would be no change 
of policy towards the Protestants, and prom- 
ised toleration. 

Then followed a war with Spain which con- 
tinued until 1597. As soon as Henry had a ^597. 
breathing spell from that war, he remembered 
his Huguenot subjects, to whom more than 
any he owed his crown, and for whom he ever 
cherished great affection. On April 15, 1598, 
he granted to Protestants the celebrated Edicf^^^^^^ of 
of Nantes, which was declared to be ''perpet- ^t^^' 
ual and irrevocable," and which secured to 
th.Qm. full loleratwn in religion. ''It consisted 
of ninety-one articles, by which the Huguenots 
were allowed to worship in their own way 
throughout the kingdom, with the exception 
of a few towns; their ministers were to be 
supported by the state; inability to hold 
offices was removed; their poor and sick 
were to be admitted to the hospitals; and, 
finally, the towns given them as security were 
to remain in their hands eight years longer." 
These towns were about 150, the chief groups 
being in the generalities of Bordeaux (south- 
west), of Montpellier (south), and of Poitou 


introd. (west) ; they were either free towns, like 
La Rochelle, Msmes, Montauban, or towns 
belonging to private gentlemen, or towns 
belonging to the king, which had fallen into 
Huguenot hands during the wars. The Edict 
was the most important bulwark of Protestant 
rights. It was registered by Parliament, Feb- 
1599- ruary 25, 1599, despite the influence of the 
Pope against its registration. 

Thus it was that the Huguenots for some 
thirty years had to wage eight separate wars, 
and roll their garments in blood to defend 
their rights, and to secure freedom of con- 
science and full liberty to worship God under 
their own vine and fig tree. It was a sublime 
proof of the sincerity of their religion, tried 
as it were in a furnace of fire. The experience 
was beneficial to them; for it tested their 
principles, purified their temper, and per- 
fected their patience. 

During this period of wars and treaties, 

the Huguenots attended their National Synod, 

Meetings having Presidents, as follows: The third 

Synod. Sy^^ocI, at Orleans, April, 1562, Anthony 
Chandieu; at Lyons, August, 1563, Peter 
Viret; at Paris, December, 1565, Nicholas De 
Galars; at Vertueil, September, 1567, De 
L'Este; at La Rochelle, April, 1571, Theodore 
Beza; at Nismes, John De La Place; at St. Pay, 
February, 1578, Peter Merlin; at Prigeac, 
August, 1579, De La Fage; at La Rochelle, 
June, 1581, De Nort; at Vitre, May, 1583, 
Peter Merlin; at Montauban, June, 1594, 
Michael Berault; at Saumur, June, 1596, De 
La Touche. 



The Struggles of the Huguenots from the Edict of 
Nantes to its Revocation, (1598-1685). 

In the Edict of Nantes, Henry IV. made a introd. 
distinction between the Huguenots as an 
ecclesiastical body and a political body. Their From 
national political assemblies, which they had^^^^^^^^ 
been accustomed to hold for the purpose of to its 
defending their civil rights, he positively ^^J^J^' 
forbade in the Edict. To allay, however, 
the discontent which arose among them on 
account of that prohibition he promised 
them verbally that such assemblies might 
continue a series of years, as the means of 
communication between the King and his 
Huguenot subjects. This political privilege 
they enjoyed till after his death, when it was 
abolished. It became customary now to ask 
the King's permission for the meetings of the 
National Synod according to its adjournment, 
and also for those of the Political Assembly. 
With this exception their privileges remained 

The civil wars were all over, but content had 
not fully returned to the people. As soon as 
the crown was settled on the head of Henry 
rV., there arose to him a most exciting and 
annoying strife for the acquisition of heredi- 
tary estates, offices, and honors, from the 
Leaguers, his opponents to the throne, the 
Politiques, and Huguenots, which last two 
parties felt they had binding claims on him. 
These parties vied with each other, and sought 
to injure the other's claims by all kinds of 
means; and the Politiques and Huguenots, 
who might well feel they had secured the 


introd. throne to him, often thought Henry ungrate- 
1610. ful to his old friends and loyal supporters. 
The strife portended violence and civil war in 
the Provinces, and the King of Spain, ever 
intent on the destruction of the French 
Reformed, sought in every way to excite dis- 
content between the Huguenots and the 
government: at one time poisoning the ear of 
the King and Court with false designs of the 
Huguenots against the throne; at other times 
alarming the Huguenots with false designs of 
the Court to destroy them, and urging them 
to revolt. Every means was used to cause a 
clash between them and the government. But 
through it all, the Huguenots bore themselves 
with patience, and won from the king the fol- 
lowing strong expression of admiration: "I 
shall never forget that God made use of that 
body to free me from the opposition of Spain, 
to assist me in supporting my just rights, and 
to save even my life from the fury of the 
Leaguers. ^^ The King made himself especial- 
ly obnoxious to the Jesuits, and after frequent 
attempts on his life, he was eventually assassi- 
nated by one of them. The assassination 
occurred during the ceremonies of the corona- 
tion of his second wife, Mary de Medici, as 
Queen Regent of the Kingdom, while he was 
absent engaged in war. The ceremonies were 
set for the eve of his departure; and while 
in the midst of the rejoicings which followed 
the coronation, as the King was riding in his 
carriage through a narrow street. May 14, 
1610, he was stabbed to the heart by Ravaillac. 
Jl^JJ While the carriage was delayed by a crowd of 
ated. vehicles, the assassin sprung upon one of the 
hinder wheels and plunged a knife into his 
breast three times. The King fell into the 


arms of two friends riding with Mm and soon introd. 
expired. Ravaillac had been watching and 
following the king for days and it is said to 
have been the eighteenth attempt on his life. 
Nothing escaped the lips of the assassin to 
criminate accomplices. He was horribly tor- 
tured and then executed. Investigation con- 
firmed the belief that many were planning and 
contriving the event, which was variously at- 
tributed to the Jesuits, to Spain, and to Italy. 

Immediately after the assassination, the- 
Queen Eegent assembled the council for ad- 
vice and co-operation, and entered the next 
morning on the duties of her office. The burial 
of her husband having been duly performed, 
she prepared for the coronation of her son, as 
King Louis XIH., at Rheims. A new council 
was formed and the old Huguenot financier, 
Sully (appointed 1597), who had laid the 
finances of the kingdom on a firm basis, en- 
riched its treasury, and prepared it for any 
emergency, was retained for a few years; and 
might have remained in office, had he seen 
his way clearly to gratify the Queen *s de- 
mands on the resources of the treasury for 
her favorites. His honesty forbade his acqui- 
escence. Wlien she removed him of all power Suiiy 
and command of the finances, she gave him^^^o"^®* 
charge of the artillery and woods, together Office. 
with the government of Poitou. On one oc- 
casion as he returned from an interview with 
the Queen and her council, to which she had 
invited him. Sully wrote: "The deceased 
King^s government, so wise, so gentle, and so 
glorious to France, was condemned almost 
publicly, and even despised and ridiculed; at 
one time they treated his designs as mere 
chimeras; at another they represented him as 


introd. a weak, and pusillanimous prince, incapable 
1611. of taking any noble resolution. It was not 
enough to leave the death of this great prince 
unpunished; they added to that neglect all 
Sully's sorts of outrages against his memory; and 
ment unhappily for us, heaven, which reserved to 
itself this vengeance, suffered envy and in- 
gratitude to triumph in their success. I 
returned home full of grief at what I saw 
and heard, *We are going,' said I, to madam 
Sully, whose prudence I well knew, 'to fall 
under the dominion of Spain and the Jesuits; 
all true Frenchmen, and the Protestants es- 
pecially, must look well to their safety; for 
they will not continue long in tranquility.' " 
Whether Ravaillac was set on Henry lY. by 
the Jesuits, or by Spain, or by Italy, his knife 
did their work. The Jesuits rose with increas- 
ing power, the King of Spain was relieved of 
anxieties, Italy through the Queen Regent, 
who was an Italian, won great favors, and 
Prance was plunged once more into confusion 
1611. and trouble; while the Huguenots were left to 
fight for themselves. Eight days after the 
death of her husband, the Queen Mother, in 
the name of the Minor King, ratified the 
Edict of Nantes; and in October, 1611, gave 
another formal declaration bearing on and 
adding forty-five thousand livres to the yearly 
sum of forty-five thousand crowns, granted 
them in the edict; but they were about the 
last favors shown and the last gifts ever made 
them by the crown. Henceforth all declara- 
tions were practically disregarded and vio- 
lated. Unfortunately for the Huguenots, their 
leaders became divided in their political as- 
sembly, held by consent of the Queen Regent, 
May, 1611, at Saumur. In that assembly the 


question of the construction and consequent introd. 
administration of the Edict of Nantes was 1612. 
debated with violence and protracted through 
four months. The one party, (courting favor 
with the Queen Regent), contended that the 
Edict should be administered strictly as it 
was recorded; the other, that it should be con- 
strued and administered according to the 
declared will and permission of Henry IV., 
who granted it. The Queen Regent, who felt 
the power of the Huguenots when they were Edict to 
united, took advantage of this division, and j^^^^^^jj^j 
sent an edict to their National Synod, April synod. 
24, 1612, granting pardon for provincial politi- 
cal assemblies held without permission, and 
forbidding all kinds of political meetings, ex- 
cept those granted by royal permission for an 
expressed purpose, under penalty of punish- 
ment as disturbers of the public peace; and 
also forbidding them to admit into their 
National Synods any persons except ministers 
and elders to treat of their doctrines and 
discipline, under penalty of losing the privi- 
lege of convening the body, and holding the 
Presidents of the Synod to answer for any 
violation thereof. By this edict the members 
of the Synod at once saw that, as the court by 
intrigue had brought a division among the 
Huguenots in their National Political As- 
sembly, its aim now was to alienate the 
National Synod and the National Assembly. 
The Synod, profoundly distressed by the fore- 
bodings of evil to come from the political 
dissensions among the Huguenots, drew up an 
act of union, in which it said: "All persons 
are exhorted to labor that the memory of past 
matters be buried in oblivion; that so the 
several humours and different opinions, risen 


i ntrod . up in the assembly of Saumur, may be bal- 
anced and composed and allayed; that the 
general desire of the Reformed Churches is 
that affections of those who have been alien- 
ated from each other should be united and 
cemented. " Letters were also ordered written 
to the different parties, exhorting and urging 
them in the name of God to resign their resent- 
ments and discontents. The whole body of 
the Reformed Church was entreated for God's 
sake, for their own salvation, and for the peace 
and welfare of the nation, to lay aside all 
animosities and to live in peace and in love; 
since their enemies were planning to ruin them 
on their own dissensions. 

While the Huguenots were endeavoring to 
have these exhortations obeyed, the Queen 
Mother was negotiating the double marriage 
Marriage contracts between the Young King and the 
^Jggo^t^i^^ Infanta of Spain, Anne of Austria, and he- 
ated, tween the Prince of Asturias, eldest son of 
the King of Spain, and the eldest sister of the 
Elng of France. By such marriages the court 
of Prance would become united with the 
deceased King's great enemy. Already the 
court of Prance was under the influence of 
Italian the Pope of Romc, the King of Spain, and the 
atcour?^^^ Italian favorites of the Queen Mother — 
' Concini who had been made Marshal, and his 
wife, Leonora Galigai. At this time there was 
not a single prominent and influential friend 
of the Huguenots at the court. The Roman- 
ists were satisfied with the general politics of 
the court, while all parties were indignant 
that its honors and favors were dispensed by 
the two Italian favorites, and in that respect 
wished for a change. While the affairs of 
state were in this condition, it became evident 


to the Huguenots that the design of the Pope, introo. 
of the King of Spain, and of the French Court, 1614. 
was to uproot all opposition to Roman Cathol- 
icism, and to establish absolute authority of 
the King over all nobles, provinces, cities, and 
towns, and to use all means, just or unjust, to 
accomplish that end. The man to effect the de- 
sign was not yet even thought of by the court, 
and had not yet risen to the surface in the 
Church of Rome. In 1614, Concini caused the 
young King's majority, when he was thirteen 
years of age, to be declared by Parliament, and 
then called the States-General to meet in Paris 
the following October. That assembly repre- 
sented faithfully the jealousies and ill-will be- 
tween the orders, and besides the interesting 
fact that Du Plessis-Mornay, a Huguenot, laid 
the grievances of his order before the King, 
they did nothing towards removing from the 
court the obnoxious favorites, Concini and his 
wife, nor towards harmonizing the nobles; and 
finally broke up in confusion. The Regency 
being ended, the yoimg king, Louis XIII., in 
assuming the reins of government, retained 
the obnoxious favorites; and also ratified the 
Edict of Nantes. The nobles of all ranks ex- 
pressed their disapprobation of the favorites, 
and political matters were now unsatisfactory. 

In 1615, the King married Anne of Austria, 1615. 
marching with an armed force to the borders ^^^^^^e 
of his kingdom to receive his bride. As his louIs 
march led through the Provinces of the ^^^^• 
Huguenots, he took great dislike for them. 

He confined Conde in the Bastile, for his 
open discontent; and many nobles retired 
from court. For two years Concini steered his 
perilous way between the young king, who 
cared little for him, and between the Princes 


introd. of tlie blood and the discontented Huguenots. 
1617. In 1617, the king chose a new favorite, Charles 
D 'Albert, Count of Luynes, and ordered the 
arrest of Concini, who resisting the officers 
was immediately slain. Galigai, his wife, was 
executed for treason. The Queen Mother was 
confined to her apartments, and then banished 
to Blois. Shortly after this court revolution, 
the Reformed in their National Synod sent 
congratulations to the King, that his kingdom 
was at peace, and that France had now a King 
worthy to reign and declared, "That next and 
after God, we do acknowledge your majesty to 
be our only sovereign, and it is an article of 
our creed, that there is no middle power 
between God and the Kings." The King 
replied, "Do you continue to serve me faith- 
fully, and you may be well assured that I will 
be a good and kind King unto you, and that I 
will preserve you according to my Edicts." 

Political affairs were still hurrying on in 
confusion and distress. The recent royal mar- 
riages had begun to show their effects openly 
to the nation and the world. The old secret 
treaty of Henry II., and Philip I. of Spain, i. e., 
the destruction of the Huguenots, became the 
basis of action, and the great object to be 

The Queen Mother escaped from her impris- 

Queen onmcut at Blois, and the nobles as little 

Escaped pl^ascd with Luyucs as they had been with 

from Concini rallied in arms around her court at 

Prison. _Angers, and demanded better treatment than 

what Luynes was showing her. The King 

released Conde from prison to command his 

forces. He soon routed the Queen Mother's 

^Sn^^^^^^ and the treaty of reconciliation between 

1620." her and the King was concluded at Angers, 


1620, by Richelieu, the Queen Mother's confi- introd. 
dential adviser, whose great abilities had al- 1620. 
ready been recognized, and who by the treaty 
averted civil war. It is said that Luynes in- 
duced Richelieu to bring about a reconciliation 
more favorable to the King than was expected, 
by the promise that he would ask for him a 
cardinars cap. Luynes induced the young 
king to move against Beam, which was the 
first act of Louis XIII. against the Huguenots, 
The King inherited from his father, besides 
the crown of France, the Kingdom of Navarre 
through his grandmother, Jean D'Albret. 
Spain had seized Navarre, and the Kingdom 
had been reduced to the narrow boundary of 
Beam. The little state had long embraced the 
Reformed faith, where Roman Catholicism 
existed by toleration, and had long been the 
refuge of the persecuted. The project of 
the King was vehemently resisted by Parlia- 
ment, because it understood that if an inde- 
pendent kingdom could be deprived of her 
ancient rights no province or city in France 
was safe. It was a step of despotic power 
towards making France a consolidated King- 
dom. The King forced Parliament into meas- 
ures, and collecting his forces, marched for 
Beam in 1620. After compelling the little 
kingdom to yield, he reduced it to a province, conquest 
re-established Catholicism as the official reli- ^°^^^ 
gion, allowed the Reformed religion by tolera- 
tion of the Edict of Nantes, and caused all the 
church property to change hands. The people 
of Beam, however, taking advantage of the 
gentleness and favor of La Force, who was left 
to carry out the King's purpose, reclaimed 
their church property for their pastors; and 
they even proceeded to recover their ancient 


introd. rights, but the King sent another force and 
1620. had them completely subdued without blood- 
shed. At the political assembly of the Hugue- 
nots at La Rochelle, December, 1620, which 
was an adjourned meeting from Loudon in 
1619, the assembly determined to prepare for 
war, by raising an army, levying taxes, and 
choosing commanders. Bouillon was made 
commander-in-chief; next was Lesdiguieres, 
and so on through a list of able men. But 
Louis Xin. knew there were divisions among 
the Reformed, and did not fear them. He had 
already gained Conde, and was at the time 
holding out inducements to Bouillon and 
Lesdiguieres, and knew they would not fight 
him. Hence when the assembly asked of him 
the privileges confirmed to them by his pred- 
ecessors, Henry ni. and Henry IV., which 
included the liberal construction of the Edict 
of Nantes that Henry IV. gave it, he, irritated 
that they had held that assembly against his 
wishes, replied: "The one acted out of fear, 
and the other out of love; but for my part, 
I wish you to know that I neither love nor fear 
you." Luynes now proposed to take all the 
towns granted in the Edict of Nantes to the 
Huguenots, as the stipulations had been more 
than fulfilled, and there was no need that they 
remain in their hands. The young king and 
his courtiers heartily endorsed the proposi- 
tion. So, leaving Paris early in April, 1621, 
the King issued fi'om Fontainbleau a declara- 
tion against the political assembly at La 
Rochelle as rebellious, and announced his pur- 
pose of visiting the disturbed provinces, and 
promised protection to all Huguenots who 
War. kept their allegiance. Luynes held the office 
of Constable in the army, and Lesdiguieres 


was Lieutenant under him. The Huguenot introd. 
Assembly prepared to meet the King's forces; 1621. 
and appointed Saubize, Rohan, La Force, and 
others as commanders, reserving to itself 
paramount authority. The King and his 
army marched against Saumur, where Du 
Plessis-Mornay being in charge, was assured 
by the King that the visit was wholly a 
friendly one, and that all the immunities of 
the town would be preserved inviolate. Ac- 
cordingly, as was the custom on the King's 
visitation, Du Plessis withdrew the forces 
from the citadel, and encamped them without 
the town. The royal train entered May 17, 
1621, and having taken possession, the King 
announced that Saumur would be retained as 
a military post for himself, and placed a 
garrison in the citadel. It was a dastardly 
piece of deception, practised on an honest, 
noble and brave Huguenot, who stands today g^^^^^. 
next to Coligny in Huguenot history. For Ta^k^^ 
implicit faith imposed in his King, Du Plessis 1621. 
had to retire and spend the remnant of his 
days in privacy and comparative poverty, until 
death came two and a half years later, when 
he was in the seventy-fourth year of his a;xe. 

From Saumur the King passed on to 
Poictou, and the provinces farther South, call- 
ing on the towns in his path which were held 
by the Huguenots to open their gates to him, 
which they did; and all the military defenses 
of the Huguenots in his route were subdued. 

The designs of the King were now fully 
comprehended. The Huguenots saw that he 
had provoked them to take up arms for the 
purpose of declaring them in rebellion, that he 
might have cause to seize their fortified towns 
by duplicity and otherwise. One of the towns 


introd. was lield by Sanbize, and it defended itself 

1621, for about a month, and on surrendering was 
almost reduced to ruins. At tlie town of 
Clanoc, the pastor, with his father, father-in- 
law, and other citizens were publicly executed, 
and a part of the garrison murdered in cold 
blood. At Montauban the success of the 
King's army was arrested. That garrison was 
defended with great skill and vigor by La 
Force and Count De OvA-al, who repulsed all 
the assaults of the King and Luynes. Be- 
coming discouraged, the royal forces kindled 
watch fires in their camp, as if preparing for 
a nightly assault, and then stole away before 
their movement was discovered. Lu.ynes, cha- 
grined at the failure attributed to his want of 
generalship, and fearing the loss of the King's 

Death of favor, languished with camp fever, and died 
Luynes. jjg^P the cud of 1621; over whose death the 
King did not grieve, for he had grown weary 
of him. 

The King passed the winter without a favor- 
ite, or a master. 

There were now two parties in the court, 
that of the Queen Mother, upheld by Riche- 

1622. lieu, and that of the Prince of Conde. The 
^war.^ King leaning towards the latter which wished 

for war, began a second campaign against the 
Huguenots early the next spring (1622), and 
conducted it with greater cruelty than the 
former one. During the winter, the inhabit- 
ants of Negrepelisse massacred the royal 
garrison of 400 men located there in one night. 
When the King came to them in the month of 
June, he put the entire population to the 
sword. Fourteen days later, the Huguenot 
garrison at St. Anthoneis, because of their 
gallant defense, were all murdered, and the 


women of the town were all violated. In the introa. 
month of September, the King reached Mont- 1622. 
pellier, and began a siege which lasted six 
weeks. Becoming discouraged, and fearing a 
failure as at Montauban, he appointed Les- 
diguieres to treat with the Duke of Rohan f orTreaty of 
peace; and a treaty was signed in camp, ^^^y 
October 9, 1622, of which the Edict of Nantes ^ 
was made the basis. Catholicism was declared 
the official religion; political assemblies were 
treasonable, if held without consent; and all 
politics and political discussions were for- 
bidden in the religious courts of the Reformed. 

The King by his army had now established 
the strict construction of the Edict of Nantes, 
which Lesdiguieres and Bouillon had con- 
tended for in the political assembly at Saumur 
in 1611. Lesdiguieres was rewarded with the 
office of Marshal of the Kingdom, and for Death of 
about four years he enjoyed the honor of being g^ieres. 
second in power in the kingdom. He died 
September 28, 1626, in his 84th year. 

During the year 1622, Richelieu received Richelieu, 
from the Pope the Cardinal's hat, and was now 
ready to take charge of, and to rule the weak 
and unstable King. In 1624, he was made a 
member of the council. Louis XIII. needed 
his great abilities, but instead of loving him, 
he trembled for the influence he might wield 
over him, the court, and the kingdom. Still, 1624. 
recognizing his abilities, and himself wearied 
out with the cares of government that were 
encroaching on his freedom and enjoyment, 
the King with great hesitation at last deter- 
mined to throw the weight of government on 
Richelieu, and made him, April 9, 1624, Coun- 
cillor of State. Richelieu's first desire in his 
high office was the destruction of the Re- 


introd . formed French Churcli. He accordingly paid 
1625. little attention to the stipulations of the treaty 
which the King had made with the Huguenots, 
and provoked them to rebellion by all possible 
means. In 1625, while the government was 
involved in difficulties in Italy, the inhabit- 
ants of La Rochelle prepared for war, trusting 
to their strong fortifications and maritime 
advantages. The Duke of Rohan commanded 
their forces on land, and the Duke Saubize 
their naval interests. The royal forces were 
commanded by Marshal De Themines. The 
royalists waged war lightly against La Ro- 
chelle, but heavily in the southern provinces, 
carrying desolation and terror among the 
unwalled villages, while the Huguenots of 
the middle and northern provinces were undis- 
turbed. The naval force under Saubize beat 
the royal marine in several engagements, and 
Peace Richelieu with foreign complications brewing 
^1^2?*' ^^"^^^ himself under the necessity of offering 
conditions of peace, in 1626, which it is said 
the Huguenots refused to accept. 

Richelieu's next move against the Hugue- 
nots was to reduce La Rochelle. A powerful 
army was raised, and marched against it, 
Richelieu commanding. The Huguenots of 
the stronghold defended themselves with great 
fortitude and bravery for more than a year, 
during which length of time the population of 
the city was reduced from 15,000 to less than 
5,000 by famine and disease. But with ample 
means and forces at Richelieu's command, the 
resistance of the siege was in vain. Even 
three fleets which the English induced Charles 
I. to send to the relief of the city, had to return 
without effecting their object. Finally, Riche- 
lieu, having expended all his energy and 


strategy, and worn out with the siege himself, introd. 
was glad to propose liberal terms of surrender. 
He promised amnesty, free exercise of the 
Reformed religion, and the restoration of all 
property to the citizens. The terms were ^^^^ 
accepted, and on the 28th of October, 1628, Rocheiie. 
Richelieu rode into the city with King Louis ^^^s. 
Xin. at his side, followed by the royal army. 

An Edict was promulgated, declaring the 
independence and privileges of La Rocheiie 
ended; Catholicism was made the official 
religion; the great church was seized for a 
cathedral; the fortifications of the city, ex- 
cepting those towards the coast, were all 
erased, every ditch was to be filled up, and not 
a wall was to be left even for a garden. The 
fall of La Rocheiie was the death blow to 
the Huguenots as a political power. All 
their other strongholds — Msmes, Montauban, 
Castres, etc., soon fell and the}^ were left 

Richelieu, however, manifested a tolerant 
spirit and did not oppress them. 

In 1629, the Edict of Pardon was issued, ^^^^^J^^^ 
granting the same privileges of the Edict of Pardon. 
Nantes, with the exce]3tion of the strongholds 
which had been destroved. 

The Huguenots now ceased to wield politi- 
cal influence, and became distinguished as a 
party only by their religion. At no other 
period were they more intellectualh^ active. 
Charenton, which was near Paris, became the 
center of a powerful religious and philosoph- 
ical influence that made itself felt in the 
capital, and at the royal court. The number 
of their eminent writers and preachers was 
great. In different parts of the kingdom not 
less than six theological schools had been 


introd. established, of wMcli those at Saumur, Mon- 

^^42. tauban, and Sedan were the most important. 

Deatnsot Richelieu died December 4, 1642, and was 

^^'^and^" succeeded by Mazarin. In about five months 

Louis afterwards, May 14, 1643, Louis XIII. died, 

^o"i ^^^ -^^^ ^^^^ when his minority was passed, 

XIV, was crowned, Louis XIV. His mother, Anne 

^^g^s- of Austria, was Queen Regent for eight years. 

The same rights and privileges were granted 

the Huguenots under this new regimen, but as 

usual were disregarded. Having lost their 

political influence, they suffered a general loss 

of nobles, who went to the Roman church. 

From the Edict of Toleration in 1598 to 
1659, the Reformed held fifteen meetings of 
Meetings their National Synod, with Presidents as 
Sym)d. follows: At Montpellicr, March, 1598, Pastor 
Berault; at Gergeau, May, 1601, Monsieur 
Pacard; at Gap, October, 1603, Daniel 
Chamier; at La Rochelle, March, 1607, Mon- 
sieur Beraut; at St. Maxaut, May, 1609, Mon- 
sieur Merlin; at Privos, May, 1612, Daniel 
Chamier; at Vitre, May, 1617, Andrew Revit; 
at Alez, October, 1620; at Charenton, Sep- 
tember, 1623, Monsieur Durant; at Castres, 
September, 1626; at Charenton, September, 
1631, Metrezat, Pastor of Paris; at Alancon, 
May, 1637, Benjamin Basnage; at Charenton, 
December, 1644, Pastor Dulincourt, of Paris; 
1659- and after an interval of fourteen 3^ears, the 
Synod, twenty-uiuth and the last National Synod was 
held at Loudon, November, 1659, Pastor 
Daille, President. 

Mazarin, who permitted the holding of the 

last Synod, intended that it should be the last. 

Spirit of The spirit of that Synod was such as should 

Sy?od become the last sessions of the highest judi- 

" catory of the Reformed French Church. 


There were manifested in its deliberations no introa . 
murmurings, lamentations, threatenings, re- 
pinings, no compromises, and no giving up of 
rights and privileges. Everything was digni- 
fied, mild, and resolute. 

Cardinal Mazarin broke the visible bond of 
union of the French Eeformed Church, and 
left it to hold together as it had done a century 
before by a common faith, a common worship, 
a common discipline, a common Catechism for 
their youth, a common confession of sound 
words, and a common Bible. And in a little Death of 
more than a year afterwards, Mazarin himself Mazarin. 

The vetoing of the National Synod was to 
the Huguenots ecclesiastically, what thenuguenot 
downfall of La Rochelle was to them politi- ^y^^^^' 
cally — the beginning of the end of their 1662". 
religious rights in France. New Edicts soon 
followed, which were intended to damage their 
financial interests, and to impede the free 
exercise of their religion. In 1662, they were 
forbidden to bury their dead except at day- 
break or night-fall. 

In 1663, new converts from the Reformed ^663. 
Church were excused from payment of debts 
previously contracted with their fellow-re- 
ligionists. In 1665, their boys, at the age of 1665. 
fourteen, and their girls at twelve years of age, 
were allowed to declare themselves Roman 
Catholics, and their parents were either to 
provide for such apostates, or apportion them 
a part of their possessions. In 1679, converts 1679. 
who relapsed into Protestantism were to be 
banished, and their property confiscated. In 1680. 
1680, Huguenot clerks and notaries were 
deprived of their employments; and mar- 
riages of Protestants to Roman Catholics were 


introd. forbidden, and their issue declared ille^iti- 
1681. mate, and incapable of succession. In 1681, 
Huguenot children might become converts to 
the Catholic religion at seven years of age, 
which was followed by a great kidnapping 
process by the priests, and parents were sub- 
jected to heavy penalties, if they ventured to 
complain. Orders were issued in some parts 
of the kingdom to destroy the Huguenot 
churches; and as many as eighty were torn 
down in one diocese, and the pastors, who held 
services amid their ruins, were compelled to 
do penance with a rope around their necks, 
and then banished the kingdom. Protestants 
were prohibited from singing Psalms in their 
homes or dwellings, and on land or water. 

Blow rapidly followed blow. In short, they 
suffered from the pettiest annoyance to the 
most exasperating cruelty. They offered no 
resistance. All that they did was to meet and 
pray God to soften the heart of the King 
1683. towards them. In 1683, Colbert, minister of 
state, died. He had tried hard to prevent the 
hardships laid on the Huguenots by the King, 
who was urged on by his Jesuit confessor, 
Pere la Chaise, and his mistress, Madame de 
Maintenon. Colbert saw that the strength of 
the states consisted in the number, intelli- 
gence, and industry of such citizens as the 
Huguenots were. After his death, military 
executions and depredations began through- 
out the kingdom. Bodies of troops were 
quartered upon the Huguenots to harass them, 
and make converts of them. These troops 
passed through the southern provinces, com- 
pelling the inhabitants to abjure their religion, 
destroying their churches, and murdering 
their preachers. Hundreds of thousands, who 


would not abjure, fled to Switzerland, the introd. 
Netherlands, England and Germany. The less. 
dragoons placed on the frontiers to prevent 
their escape were in vain. Many made an 
insincere abjuration, who, on the slightest ap- 
pearance of relapse, were put to death. When 
it now became apparent that the Huguenots 
were no longer within the pale of the law, then 
Roman Catholic mobs arose against them. 
They broke into their churches, tore up the 
benches and burned them, along with the 
Bibles and Hymn Books, and the authorities 
conniving at such proceedings banished the 
burned-out preachers, and forbade further 
worship in such churches. 

Pity, terror, and anguish had agitated the 
minds of the Huguenots, until they were 
finally reduced to a state of despair. Life was 
made almost intolerable to them. 

At the last, all hope vanished when the 
King, Louis XIV. signed, on the 18th and Revoca- 
published on the 22d of October, 1685, ^/le ^f\l^ 
Revocatiofi of the Edict of Nantes. Its enact- Edict of 
ments have been briefly summed up as fol- Mantes, 
lows: ''The demolition of all the remaining 
Protestant temples throughout Prance; the 
entire proscription of the Protestant Reli- 
gion; the prohibition of even private worship 
under penalty of confiscation of body and 
property; the banishment of all Protestant 
pastors from the kingdom within fifteen 
days; the closing of all Protestant schools; 
the prohibition of parents from instructing 
their children in the Protestant faith; the 
obligation, under penalty of a heavy fine, of 
having their children baptized by the parish 
priest, and educating them in the Roman 


introd. Catholic religion ; the confiscation of the prop- 
1685. erty and goods of all Protestant refugees who 
failed to return to France within four months; 
the penalty of the galleys for life to all men, 
and of imprisonment for life to all women 
detected in the act of attempting to escape 
from France." 

The Revocation was a proclamation of war 
by the armed against the unarmed — a war 
against law-abiding and helpless men and 
women — a war against property, against 
family, against society, against public mo- 
rality, and more than all, against the rights 
of conscience. It brought perilous times. 
Thousands of the Huguenots took their lives 
in their hands, as they attempted to leave 
home, property, loved ones, and escape to 
Holland, Switzerland, England and Germany, 
which threw open their doors to them and 
gave them hearty reception. All the Protes- 
tant lands of Europe were glad to enrich their 
trade and manufactures by the accession of 
the most intelligent and industrious classes 
of the French population. The name ''Hugue- 
not," ha^dng acquired an honorable associa- 
tion, became a passport to favor. A great 
many suffered death before they would abjure, 
and others submitted. 
Number The total number of those who refugeed 
Refugees from France has been estimated from 300,000 
to 400,000, and as many, it is supposed, per- 
ished in prison, on the scaffold, at the galleys, 
and in their attempts to escape. Only a year 
after the Revocation, Vauban wrote that, 
Financial <' France had lost 60,000,000 of francs in specie, 
^°''- 9,000 sailors, 12,000 veterans, 600 officers, and 
her most flourishing manufactures." All in- 
dustries languished ; the cultivation of the soil 


was almost abandoned; and in many parts of introd. 
the kingdom, towns and large districts were 
depopulated. France became a huge hospital 
without provisions, and more than a century 
passed before it was restored to its former 
prosperity: a providential retribution and 
natural penalty for the wrongs and cruelty 
inflicted upon the Huguenots, who contended 
for the exercise of simple, conscientious prin- 
ciples of religious faith. And it has been 
published that, in 1870, no less than eighty- 
nine of their descendants returned to France, 
as ojficers of the invading German army: — "As 
thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee ; thy 
reward shall return upon thine own head." 
And the end of retribution, for such diabolical 
cruelty perpetrated upon innocent and con- 
scientious subjects, is not yet. 

Addendum. Since this article was com- 
pleted the French Parliament, January 3, 
1907, amended the Church and State Separa- 
tion law of 1905, which was signed by the 
President and promulgated. Elections since 
have shown that the people are with their 
representatives; that government and people 
are determined upon the separation of Church 
and State, after a more or less close reunion of 
fourteen centuries. The act places all Catho- 
lics, Protestants, and Jews throughout the 
Empire on the same footing, and after the 
lapse of centuries gives final victory to the 
contention of the Huguenots as to the relation 
of Church and State, and their right to wor- 
ship their God as their consciences might 



The Huguenots at the time of the Revocation of the 

Edict of Nantes. 

ChapjL At the time of the Revocation of the Edict 
1685. of Nantes, the Huguenots were living in all 
parts of France. It may be safely affirmed 
that there was not a Province in the king- 
dom which did not contain firm adherents to 
the Reformed faith. They were most numer- 
ous, however, in the southern, western, and 
northwestern portions. About a hundred and 
seventy years of trial and persecutions had 
been endured, since the famous James Lef evre 
had sown the first truths of the Reformation 
in the renowned University of Paris, which 
was the radiating center of the whole country. 
During that long period the doctrine of .justifi- 
cation by faith in Christ alone had been work- 
ing like leaven, and permeating hearts all over 
the land, despite the rigor of persecution per- 
petually waged to stamp it out, in disregard of 
royal edicts. 

Hence it might be expected in so great 
lapse of time, when generation had succeeded 
generation and had inherited the faith and 
principles of their ancestors, and families had 
become widely dispersed, to find the Hugue- 
nots in all parts of the country. Further- 
more, as the truths of the Reformation had 
been originally disseminated in the Univer- 
sity, and embraced by university men, these 
truths had been maintained and circulated all 
that long while by the better classes of the 
kingdom. The Huguenots were always com- 


posed mainly of the nobility and middle chap. i. 
classes, with few adherents from the lower 
class. About one-third of their strength was 
from the nobility — gentlemen of letters, chief 
burgesses of cities, wealthy families, and sol- 
diers of rank and long experience. Some of 
the noblest families of France have been those 
whose names adorned Huguenot history, and 
for centuries prior to the Reformation, their 
names had become famed for distinguished 

One of these old-famed French names is 
Du Puy. It is mentioned in the history of 
the country in the eleventh century, and was 
found in the southeastern section. In that 
locality is Le Puy, 270 miles a little southeast 
of Paris, and the capital town of the depart- 
ment of Haute-Loire, province of Languedoc. 

In the 10th century it was called Podium LePuy. 
Sanctae Mariae^ whence Le Puy. It sent the 
flower of its chivalry to the crusades in 1096. ^^^^J^^ 
Joining Haute-Loire on the northwest is the 
department of Puy de Dome, province of 

Both of these departments are in the high- Origin of 
est mountainous region of France and as it puy.»» 
was from that section the name Du Puy first 
appeared, in two words, in history, the topog- 
raphy of the country must have given rise to 
the name — ''Du,^' meaning, **of the," and 
**Puy" (old French), meaning, *' mountain." 

Louis Moreri (1643-80), a French historian, 
says: ''Du Puy is an old house, prolific of 
illustrious men. It is almost certain it had 
its origin in France." 

It was in 1033, that the two Burgundies of 
France, frequently called the kingdom of 


Chap. I. Aries, after various vicissitudes, became 
finally united to the German Empire by 

Raphael Courad II. Courad appointed Raphael Du 
^' Puy, who appears to have held the offices of 
Commander of the Roman Cavalry, and 
Grand Chamberlain of the Roman R-epublie, 1a- 
as one Governor of the conquered Provinces 
of Languedoc and Dauphin}^ in southeast 
France. It does not follow from this, that 
the name is not of French origin, as claimed 
by Moreri, for Raphael Dupuy might have 
been, and no doubt was, a real Frenchman. 
The name also appears in literature as 
"Raphael de Podio." He became quite re- 
nowned in that whole section of the country. 
His tomb was opened in 1610. The corpse 
was found lying upon a marble table, with his 
spurs on one side, his sword on the other, and 
with a helmet of lead on his head, bearing on 
a copper plate the following: "Raphael de 
Podio, General de la Cavalerie Romaine, et 
Grand Chambellan de I'Empire Romaine." 
His descendants became possessors of many 
Hugo fine estates. His son, Hugo (called also Hugh 

^"^"^•and Hugues), a French Knight of Dauphiny, 
joined the crusaders in 1096, under Godfrey 
of Bouillon, Duke of Lorraine, for the re- 
covery of the Holy Land from the Moham- 

Sons of medans. This man, Hugo Dupuy, had four 
Hugo soi2s^ Alleman, Rodolphe, Romaine, and Ray- 
"^" mond. The last three accompanied him in 
the crusades. Rodolphe, the second, to whom 
Godfrey gave many lands in Palestine, fell in 
battle. Romaine, the third son, died in pos- 
session of the principalities Godfrey had given 

Knights liim. Raymond, the fourth son, in 1118, suc- 

SiiTrs. ceeded Gerard De Martigues as rector of the 
Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem, and was 


the first to assume the title of Grand Master chap. i . 
of the Knights Hospitallers. This order 
derived its name from a hospital in the city of 
Jerusalem, consecrated to St. John the Bap- 
tist, and its object was to receive and care for 
the needy and sick visitants of that city. 
After the establishment of the kingdom of 
Jerusalem by Godfrey of Bouillon, the hos- 
pital acquired larger revenues than were 
requisite for the relief of the poor and sick, 
and Eaymond Dupuy about 1120, with his 
brethern, offered to the king of Jerusalem to 
make war upon the Mohammedans at his own 
expense. The king and Roman pontiffs ap- 
proving the plan, the order then partook of a 
military character, and its members were di- 
vided into three classes — Knights, or soldiers of 
noble birth, whose business was to fight for re- 
ligion, priests, who conducted the religious 
exercises, and serving brethren, who were 
soldiers of ignoble birth. The order exhibited 
the greatest feats of valor; twice repulsed the 
advancing Turks; was supported by landed 
property in all parts of Europe, and acquired 
immense wealth, under the auspices of Ray- 
mond Dupuy, who died in 1160. 

The badge, which all the crusaders wore on Badge of 
their right shoulders, was the sign of the sfders. 
cross, made of white, red, or green woolen 
cloth, and solemnly consecrated. That badge 
not only gave rise to the name Crusade, but 
it also indicated that the enterprise was to 
rescue the cross of our Lord from the hands 
of the Mohammedans. The shield which the 
Dupuys bore in that enterprise, was adorned shields, 
with a red rampant lion, with blue tongue and 
claws, upon a field of gold. The shield of the 


Chap. I . EjQights of St. John of Jerusalem was adorned 
with a cross of silver, upon a field of red. 
When Raymond Dupuy became Grand Master 
of that order, and it assumed a military char- 
acter, according to the custom of chivalry, he 
chose for the adornment of his shield the 
two quartered, i. e., two lions and two crosses. 

Coats of As yet, no decided traces of Coats of Arms 
™^' have been discovered among the early cru- 
saders. It was not until the 13th century 
that they came rapidly into use, not acquiring 
a fixed character until the middle of the 14th, 
and prevailed until about the close of the 15th 
century; after which they became merely 
ornamental and genealogical escutcheons, as 
emblems of rank and family, and marks of 
gentle blood. When such insignia did arise, 
i. e., in the 13th century, the adornment dis- 
played on the shield of the Dupuys of the 
crusades was then adopted as a Coat of Arms, 
with the addition of lion supporters and a 
ducal crown for a crest, and the motto, 
''Agere et pati forte virtute nan genere vita^ 

But by what Dupuy, or of what branch of 
them it was adopted, and whether regularly 
handed down from generation to generation, 
is not known. Moreover, according to the 
laws of Heraldry, governing the hereditary 
transmission of a Coat of Arms, the eldest son 
alone could fall heir to it, which in earliest 
times he was allowed to change by a label. 
The younger sons could not adopt the paternal 
Coat without a material change, called in 
heraldry a ''difference." These laws, regu- 
lating the transmission of the Coat forced a 
vast multitude of such arms, which finally 
necessitated the appointment of commissions 


of visitation throughout the country, whose chap. i . 
duty was to decide upon their lawful author- 
ity. Still more, such escutcheons sprung up 
under rank rule and domination of Roman 
Catholicism, but when in the 16th century 
some descendants in Languedoc of the early 
Dupuys became adherents to the Reformed 
Religion, there is no evidence that they ever 
set any store by such things, and least of all 
is there the slightest evidence that the one of 
whom this volume treats ever laid any claim 
to a Coat of Arms. In addition, a careful 
perusal of the laws of Heraldry will convince 
any lover of truth and honesty how absurd it 
is for the descendants of Bartholomew Dupuy 
to lay any rightful claim, in this late day to a 
special Coat of Arms, which was framed 
about six hundred years ago. And they should 

aspire to claim, 

"No forged tables 
Of long descent, to boast false honors from." 

From one or another of the four sons of 
Hugo Dupuy, the crusader, have descended 
all the Dupuys of this country, whose ances- 
tors were identified with the reformed religion 
of France. We know there were no less than 
five Huguenot Dupuys, who immigrated to 
this country and probably there were more, 
among the several thousands of French refu- 
gees, who found homes of peace in these parts 
of America. 

Two brothers, Nicholas and Francis Dupuy, Nicholas 
fled from Paris in the fifties of the 17th cen- ^^^^^ 
tury, and during the next decade they em- Dupuy. 
igrated to America, and settled in the state 
of New York, where some of their descend- 
ants still reside. Dr. Richard B. Faulkner, 


Chap. I . of Pittsburg, Pa., is a gt.-gt.-gt.-gt.-gt.-grand- 
son of Nicholas, who married Cataline de 
Vaux. His brother, Francis Dupuy, married 
Gertie Williams Boenem. 
Dr. John Another progenitor was Dr. John Dupuy, 
Dupuy. ^-^Q settled in New York City, an immigrant 
from Port Royal, Jamaica, British West 
Indies, an immigrant from England, where he 
studied medicine, an immigrant, with his 
father, John, from France prior to 1700, and 
driven out of the country by the Revocation 
of the Edict of Nantes. It is claimed that he 
descended from Raymond Dupuy through 
some fifteen or sixteen generations. His 
Dupuy descendants are not very numerous, 
since only one male descendant of several gen- 
erations had issue. (See Appendix.) 
Francois The name, Francois Dupuy, appears among 
Dupuy. ^jjQgg Qf i\^Q early settlers of the Parish of 
King W^illiam, at Manakintown, Va., but 
there is no trace at this time of living descend- 
ants from him. 
Barthoio- The progenitor, Bartholomew Dupuy, of 
D^puy. whom this volume treats, descended from 
^ Alleman, the oldest son of the Crusader, Hugo 
; Dupuy. He was in all probability born in the 
province of Languedoc about the year 1652. 
His grandson. Rev. John Dupuy, born 1738, 

writes in 1814, "My grandfather 

was born in France about the year 1650 or 
1653.^' The former date is a little early, and 
the latter a little late to harmonize with the 
well established division of years in his after 
life. Besides the statement is by no means 
definite. The most reliable and definite 
statement, the author has ever seen on the 
subject, is that recorded by Mr. Ebenezer 
Dupuy, a great grandson, born 1791, who 


wrote, ''Bartholomew Dupuy was born in c hap. i . 
France in the year 1652." As that is a defi- 
nite statement, and nicely coincides with his 
after life, we accept it as the most reliable, 
understanding that it does not settle the ques- 
tion beyond doubt. By virtue of his descent 
from the nobility, Bartholomew Dupuy heired 
the honorable title of ' ' Count. ^ ^ The Province 
in which he is claimed to have been born was a 
stronghold of Protestantism. Its adherents 
shortly before the Revocation of the Edict of 
Nantes exceeded two hundred thousand; and 
in many of its towns they outnumbered the 
Roman Catholics. In no other part of France 
did the Reformed Religion flourish more re- 
markably than in the important province of 
Languedoc. When Bartholomew Dupuy was 
eighteen years of age, he enlisted in the French 
army as a common soldier and served fourteen Eniist- 
years, during which time he was in fourteen ^^^^^ 
pitched battles, besides skirmishes and also ^™^' 
duels. His fidelity and bravery in the army 
won for him the admiration and confidence of 
King Louis XIV., and in the meanwhile he 
was promoted to be Lieutenant, and trans- 
ferred to the King's household guards. 
While in that service, he was frequently sent 
on important and recruiting services, when he 
received Captain's pay, and was provided 
with a written pass containing the King's 
signature, which prohibited any one from 
molesting his progress. The simple exposure 
of the King's signature was often sufficient 
for the guards stationed throughout the king- 
dom to let him pass, for many of them could 
neither read nor write. About the year 1684, Retire- 
he retired temporarily from the King's ser- ^|g*- 
vice, and purchased the fine old chateau of Home. 


Chap. I. Velours, a country mansion, having a vine- 
yard. It was near Royan in the province of 
Saintonge, which had received the truths of 
the Reformation as early as 1534, and at the 
time of the Revocation the Mass had become 
practically a thing of the past most generally 
throughout it. The strongest of all the 
Huguenot strongholds, La Rochelle, was in 
the northern part of this province. As Royan 
is situated on the right bank of the river, 
Gironde, his home was not far from the At- 
lantic coast. It was a delightful section of 
the country in which to reside; pleasantly 
watered by brooks, and shaded by fine 
trees down to the steep rocky shore, with a 
charming neighborhood, composed almost ex- 
1685. clusively of Protestants. In the year 1685, 
^^"^^^^^ (Ebenezer Dupuy writes), he married Sus-"^- 
anna Lavillon, a young countess of noble ; 
standing and of the Huguenot faith. The 
author has thought for years that her surname 
might have been "Levilain," and that she was 
a relative of John Levilain, one of the early 
settlers at Manakintown, Va., for the orthog- 
raphy of proper names at that time was very 
bad. However, as he has no clear and relia- 
ble testimony to that effect, and as the name 
*' Lavillon" has been preserved in history, and 
is a family name among the descendants, it is 
still reserved. 

In retiring from the King's ser^dce, Bar- 
tholomew Dupuy did not lose the least of his 
Majesty's favor, and although a professed 
Huguenot he also held the regard and esteem 
of the Romish priest, the cure of the Parish. 

Before the Revocation of the Edict of 
Nantes, he was informed by a messenger from 
the King, of what was preparing for the 


Huguenots, and was urged to abjure Ms Prot- chap. i. 
estantism, and to rely on the favor of the 
King for future promotion. And when the 
Edict was revoked, he with his household was 
protected from arrest and molestation by an 
Amnesty from the King containing the King's Amnesty, 
signature, which amnesty he used in making 
his arrangements and in effecting his flight 
from the country. A graphic account of the 
experiences, which he and his wife passed 
through the short time they remained in 
France after the Revocation, and of the 
manner of their escape in December, 1685, as 
well as the condition of affairs in that country 
at the time, is well portrayed in " The Story of 
a Huguenot's Sword ^' which was published 
in "Harper's New Monthly Magazine,'' of 
April, 1857: the authorship of which article 
is assigned in the Magazine's Index to John 
Esten Cooke. By consent of Messrs. Harper 
and Brothers of New York, the article is well 
worthy of incorporation in this volume, 
thereby preserving it among the old progeni- 
tor's descendants. 

Its statements are declared to be substan- 
tially correct, and there are many old letters 
preserved among the descendants, which go to 
confirm much of The Story, relative to this

7. — A Relic. 

At the residence of a gentleman in the county A Relic, 
of Prince George in Virginia, a descendant of one 
of those noble and devoted men who fled from 
France, giving up all in preference to abjuring their 


C hap. L faith, * may still be seen an ancient relic of strange 
A Relic, interest to the student of the Past, and no less 
curious, from the history connected with it, to the 
general reader. 

The relic in question is an ancient and battered 
sword of singular appearance. It is triangular, 
with something of a spear-like form, and not ex- 
ceeding three feet in length. The workmanship is 
plain, and the old brand seems to have been in- 
tended far more for actual bloody use than mere 
ornament. The original scabbard has been long 
since lost, and that into which the weapon is now 
thrust was picked up on the battle-field of Guilford, 
and from its silver mounting and peculiar work- 
manship, must have belonged to a British offlcer, 
who lost or threw it away in the engagement. The 
father of the gentleman who now possesses the 
weapon used it with good vigor in the battle men- 
tioned, and it drank the blood of more than one 
enemy of the American cause. This was, however, 
no new thing for the ancient and battered weapon. 
Manuscript and tradition in the owner's family 
establish clearly that the original wearer used the 
sword in fourteen pitched battles and a number of 
duels. On two continents it had thus been wielded, 
and we are assured, ^'always with honor," in a 
worthy cause. 

It is "a passage in the life'' — so to speak — of this 
singular sword that we are about to narrate — a de- 
tached series of events which befell one of its wear- 
ers, leaving out the bloody battles in Europe, and 
the field of Guilford, where it was used in another 
struggle. This narrative will embrace a portion of 
the family history of two of the worthiest houses 
of our Virginia of to-day — the Fontaines and 
Dupuys. In giving thus much attention to the sub- 
ject, we shall not be throwing away our time or 
trouble, for ever^'thing relating to this noble race of 

*Among the Huguenots who fled to Virginia were the Flour- 
noys, Meauxs, DuVals, Maryes, Boudoins, Latines, and others. 


men is full of interest, and includes a lofty moral. C hap. I . 
The Huguenots were of the best blood of France — a Relic, 
the flower of the nobility, the middle classes, and 
the commons. The infusion of this element into 
the Anglo-Saxon stock has enriched and strength- 
ened it, still further fertilizing, as it were, by a 
foreign substance, the originally vigorous soil. 

The singular romance of the subject will always 
render it one of deep interest, and the following 
brief narrative possesses this attraction. It scarcely 
differs in any degree from actual fact, and where 
this difference occurs, it consists almost wholly in 
the grouping of the incidents; otherwise the history 
is true to the letter, and derived exclusively from 
well-authenticated documents. The whole relation 
is no less valuable than interesting, teaching as it 
does a lofty philosophy, and displaying the heroic 
texture of the noble men of that period — a period 
which brought out, perhaps, as much moral beauty 
and strength as any other in the history of the 

II. — A Meeting of Huguenots. 

It was about six o'clock in the evening on Palm A 
Sunday of the year 1684, immediately preceding Meeting 
the revocation of the celebrated "Edict of Nantes," Hugue- 
which had granted religious toleration to the Prot- nots. 
estants throughout the kingdom of France. 

Under the drooping boughs of the little wood 
of Chatelars, near Royan, in the province of Sain- 
togne, about a dozen men were assembled, clad in 
plain dark garments, and displaying in every linea- 
ment of their determined countenances that heroic 
devotion to duty, in the teeth of danger, which char- 
acterizes the loftiest natures. These men, who were 
Huguenots, had been engaged in religious services, 
conducted by one of their number, whose dress 
seemed to indicate either that he was a minister, 
or at least was a candidate for ordination. 

He was a man of about twenty-five or six, with a 
countenance of great personal beauty, and his bear- 


Ch^i. ing -^ras that of a gentleman of rank and position. 
A His flaxen peruke fell around rosy cheeks, from 
Meeting ^riijch a pair of blue eyes, filled with resolution, 
Hugue- shone with a serene and tranquil radiance, 
nots. Immediately beside him stood another individual 
in appearance equally striking. He was about 
thirty years of age, apparently, lofty of stature, and 
with the eagle eye of one born to command. Be- 
neath his dark cloak, which he wrapped closely 
around him, was seen at times the uniform of an 
officer in the Royal Guardsmen of his Majesty 
Louis XIV., and around his waist was buckled a 
short triangular sword. 

After the termination of their devotions, the 
Huguenots drew together around the trunk of an 
immense oak ; and for about half an hour exchanged 
earnest and cautious conversation. The discussion 
seemed to turn upon the best mode of proceeding: 
to be adopted by the rural population of Protestant 
faith. The chief disputants were the young min- 
ister and an elderly gentleman, who seemed to 
counsel a moderation which was distasteful to his 

"But, Messire Mouillere,'' said the young min- 
ister, in an impassioned whisper, "are we always to 
be slaves? Are we to bow our necks to the yoke, and 
go at the bidding of a king's mistress to worship 
the gods of Baal? For one, I say, sooner would I 
perish ! At least, Ave shall die like freemen !" 

"But, my dear Messire de la Fontaine," said the 
other, in the same tone, "what can we do? It is but 
submission to the storm as it passes; involving no 
denial of faith." 

"No denial! an abjuration such as soon will be 
forced upon us, no denial !" 

"At least, there are many excellent men who 
preach non-resistance." 

"Yes!" said Fontaine, with a sudden rush of 
blood to his cheeks, "yes! and this preaching has 
brought upon us all our woes !" 


"Would you counsel resistance to his Majesty, Chap. I. 
Messire — armed resistance?" ^ 

"I would — and I would appeal to the Lord of Meeting 
Hosts, to the God of Battles, for the rest ! Ah, Sire ^^ 
Mouillere! how long shall we be forced to hear nots!" 
these arguments — to listen to these views? I say 
to you that our forefathers consented to lay down 
their arms, because religious toleration was con- 
ceded to them ! I say that it is a miserable breach 
of faith in his Majesty to revoke that edict ! I say 
that I, for one, candidate for the ministry though 
I be, am ready to buckle on my sword, and abide 
by the issue, whether life or death !" 

A murmur of applause greeted these passionate 
words, and for a moment there was silence. 

"But," persisted Mouillere, shaking his head, 
"you forget that the poor people of the province ^ 
have not your resolution; they have no means to 
fly in the event of defeat ; they — " 

"Will die at least with arms in their hands, not 
be dragooned to death in spite of their abjuration!" 

Subdued by the enthusiasm of his opponent, or 
finding the struggle too much for him, Messire 
Mouillere did not reply. For a time no sound dis- 
turbed the silence, but the sighing of the wind in 
the huge branches overhead, and the suppressed 
breathing of the assemblage. At last this silence 
was broken by the gentleman who concealed be- 
neath his cloak the uniform of the king's guards. 

"I am of the opinion of Messire Jacques de la 
Fontaine," he said, in a deep voice which he made 
no effort to moderate. "I think that the time has 
come to preach and practice resistance! resistance 
to the death! I take my place by Messire de la 
Fontaine, and I will take the chances of the cause^ 
life or death !" 

"Thanks! thanks!" replied Fontaine. "I recog- 
nize there the true blood of Dupuy. Messire 
Barthelemi, I salute you." 

" 'Tis no time for compliments," replied Messire 
Dupuy, "and I see that we can not at present come 



Chapj. to any decision. I therefore propose, friends, that 

A we break up our meeting, to assemble again at such 

Meeting place and time as shall be agreed on." 

Hugue- ^ murmur of approbation replied to the words — 

nots. and in a moment all were kneeling before Messire 

Jacques de la Fontaine, who offered up a passionate 

and strangely eloquent prayer. 

It was a singular spectacle, that of these men 
thus kneeling beneath the branches of the great oak 
of the forest, upon which the shades of night were 
rapidly descending; praying to One beyond the 
stars for succor. Their cathedral was the gloomy 
wood, with its gnarled and knotted trunks; their 
organ the low wind that began to moan in the 
branches ; their light the stars that began to twinkle 
like a million lamps in the drooping canopy above 
them. And yet we know that He who looks to the 
heart alone was listening, that the prayers of 
Jacques de la Fontaine reached the throne of 

Ere long the last place in which the Huguenots 
had assembled was deserted — the last footsteps had 
died away — a solemn silence reigned in the forest, 
unbroken by the fall of a branch or the note of a 

"Aha! are you there?" came suddenly from the 
wide boughs of the great oak ; and descending with 
the agility of a cat, the spy who had uttered these 
words stood upon the ground. 

"Aha!" he repeated, looking cautiously around 
with his cunning eyes. "As sure as my name's 
Agoust, advocate, I'll string you, one and all, for 
this. Ah! my birds! my good Huguenot traitors! 
jou shall swing for this ere you're a month older !" 

Suddenly, however, the spy seemed to reflect 
upon what had escaped his attention. 

"I forgot," he said. "I lost sight of my advocate- 
ship ! An advocate to turn spy — in a tree ! Really 
that won't do ! Come, my dear Messire Agoust, let 
us see if you can not legally, honorably, and inci- 
dentally behold these traitors and their doings !" 


With which words the spy-advocate commenced C hap, i . 
running rapidly along a by-path, which led in the ^ 
direction taken by the Protestants. Meeting 

He soon issued from the wood, and entered, gueue- 
through the back door, a small house situated upon nots. 
the main road, tliough somewhat removed from it. 
Hastening to the front window, which commanded 
a view of the highway, he uttered an exclamation of 

Messire Jacques de la Fontaine and Barthelemi 
Dupuy were passing, with locked arms, in earnest 
conversation. Ere long they disappeared in the 
half light of evening, still making gestures, and 
conversing with animation. The spy-advocate took 
out a small book, and with his pencil made a memo- 

"Aha ! my good Messires !" he said, with a chuckle 
of triumph, "I shall give information presently to 
Messire the Procureur du Roi, and, I rather think, 
shall be a witness on your trial! Ah, miscreants! 
you reprimanded me for abjuring, did you, and 
said that I deserved to be degraded from the roll, 
eh? Well, we shall see who gets the better of the 
present affair, my good Messires Fontaine and 
Dupuy! Yes, we shall see!" 

With these words the advocate chuckled again, 
and softlv lowered the window from which he had 
been gazing. 

III. — The Trial of Jacques de la Fontaine. 

Our narrative refers mainly to after events, and Trial of 
we can not enter into the details of what fol- -^^^"^^ 
lowed the assemblage of Huguenots in the wood of Fontaine. 
Chatelars. Still we can not refrain from briefly 
noting the courageous bearing of Fontaine on his 

He was arrested, with others, on the information 
of the man Agoust, and, under convoy of a troup 
of "archers," taken to the town of Saintes, where, 
amidst furious cries of "Hang them ! hang them !" 


Chap. I . from the Catholics, and lamentations from the 
Trial of Protestants, they were thrown into prison. Dupuy, 
jaques for some reason, had not been arrested ; his position 
Fontafne.^^ the king's guardsmen probably exempting him. 

Immured in the loathsome prison at Saintes, 
Fontaine's courage did not fail him, and he pre- 
served an equanimity which excited the astonish- 
ment of his companions. The poor prisoners re- 
garded him as their only hope, and he continued 
incessantly to encourage and confirm them in their 
faith, praying, exhorting, and comforting them. 

The trial came at last before the Seneschal of 
Saintogne, and to the charges brought against him 
Fontaine replied with a legal acumen and boldness 
of bearing which excited in his adversaries mingled 
emotions of rage and astonishment. Pushing aside, 
with a haughty gesture, the ignominious stool upon 
which criminals were forced to seat themselves, he 
wrung from the profligate judge permission to sub- 
ject the testimony against him to a rigid cross-ex- 
amination; and this sifting process he persevered 
in, spite of threats, curses, and fury on the judge's 
part. Instead of awing him, this proceeding aroused 
Fontaine's anger; haughtily confronting the Sen- 
eschal, he threatened him with impeachment, and 
half from amazement, half from fear, his demands 
were complied with. 

Under this exhausting examination, the main 
witnesses vainly endeavored to sustain themselves. 
They stammered and foreswore themselves. 

"How far was I from your house in passing?" 
he asked of Agoust. 

"About a musket-shot." 

"And yet you swore but now that 'twas at the 
dusk of evening!" said Fontaine, extending his 
hand toward the trembling advocate. "Miserable 
wretch that you are! was it not enough that you 
should deny your baptism, and renounce your re- 
ligion yourself, but you must also employ false testi- 
mony to put temptation in the way of them whom 


God has sustained by his grace? Now look at your Chap, i. 
own statement and give God the glory." 

"At least I thought it was you!" stammered j^'^^^^^* 
Agoust, turning pale. deia 

"Write that down !" said Fontaine. Fontaine. 

The Seneschal declared it should not be done. 

"Very well," said Fontaine, coldly; "then I de- 
clare to you that I will not sign my confrontation." 

Trembling with rage, but yielding to the threat 
which would have nullified the entire proceeding, 
the Seneschal complied. 

"But you held illegal assemblies in prison !" cried 
the prosecutor. 

"You are wrong. Sire Avocat," said Fontaine, 
ironically ; "the Grand Provost and his archers are 
to blame for that — not myself. Just order the 
prison doors to be opened, and I take it on me to 
disperse the assemblage without loss of time." 

The Seneschal here broke out with rage, and or- 
dered the archers to convey the prisoner to his 

"If you think. Sire Seneschal," said Fontaine, 
haughtily, "to prevent my calling on my Creator by 
putting me in a dungeon, you are very much mis- 
taken! The greater my affliction, the more im- 
portunate will be my prayers ; and when I call upon 
God I will not forget to pray for you, that you may 
repent, and that He will give you a better mind." 

"I want neither your prayers nor your lectures!" 
cried the furious Seneschal ; "away with you !" 

He was led back to his dungeon. 

But deliverance came ere long. Dupuy, the 
guardsman, never rested until his friend's case was 
before Parliament, and this enlightened body ad- 
ministered a severe rebuke to the Seneschal, and 
ordered the release of the prisoner. 

At the door of the Town Hall, after his release, 
Fontaine met and embraced his friend. 

"Come to my chateau, Jacques," said Dupuy. 
"You think the struggle is over; friend, we have 


Chap. I. not seen the beginning. The King has fully deter- 
mined to repeal the Edict of Nantes. You start! 
Take care, tliat is treason ! come with me.'' 

IV. — The Captain of Dragoons. 

The 'j'lie brief scenes wliich we have related, taken as 
of^ra- ^^i^y ^^^ from actual history, are interesting, as 
goons, presenting a picture of the times immediately pre- 
ceding the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. We 
have seen how the smouldering fires of hatred in 
the minds of the Catholic populace sent out, as it 
were, sparks and jets of flame — proving that the 
fire-brand of hereditary hatred was not extin- 
guished, only covered with a thin coating of ashes. 

We are now to see the breaking forth of the fire 
in all its fury; the rush of the devouring flame 
which burned up all toward which the royal breath 
directed it. The events which we have narrated oc- 
curred in the spring and summer of 1684. By the 
autumn of 1685 all was ripe, and soon the infamous 
decree revoking the edict of toleration was thun- 
dered from Paris throughout the whole of France. 

Before, there had been simply ill feeling, and a 
disposition to annoy the Protestants, among the 
baser classes of their enemies; a state of things 
which Fontaine's arrest and trial truthfully dis- 
played; now, however, all had changed. In Oc- 
tober, of the year 1685, there was the bloody and 
determined purpose, armed with all the power of 
the royal edict and the loyal troops, to massacre 
every Calvinist, whether man or woman, boy or 
girl, who did not publicly abjure the Protestant 
faith, and receive the sacrament at the hands of a 

There was no delay — no time given to escape. 
With the passage of the edict commenced the hor- 
rible persecution. Like thunder following a flash 
of lightning came the terrible dragonnades — those 
forays of ferocious dragoons into every town, and 
hamlet, and chateau — cutting, burning, slaying, 


rioting — holding orgies from a mere contemplation Chap, i . 
of which every heart must recoil in horror and dis- The 
gust. Intoxicated with blood, these men seemed Captain 

of Dra- 

to have lost their senses in the sensual and devilish goons, 
career of murder — like a victorious army in the 
enemy's country, they gave free rein to their brutal 
and bloody instincts — torture and death seemed to 
precede them and follow in their wake like blood- 
hounds. As to the unfortunate people upon whom 
they were let loose, the Huguenots, they no longer 
assembled even in the forests — the ten thousand 
spies which swarmed in every village would have 
given information, and the meeting for prayer 
would have terminated in blood. 

The troops descended like an avalanche upon the 
province of Saintogne, and with the sword in one 
hand, and the sacrament in the other, cried, "Ab- 
jure! abjure! partake of the host, or prepare for 
instant death!" These dragoons had fixed days 
for the "conversion" of every district, and on these 
days they fell upon it, took possession of the Prot- 
estants' houses, turned the parlors into stables for 
their horses, and treated the owners with monstrous 
cruelty — beating them, burning some alive, half 
roasting others, and then letting them go — securely 
tying mothers to the bed-posts, and leaving their 
sucking infants to perish at their feet — hanging 
some upon hooks in chimneys, and smoking them 
with wisps of wet straw till they were suffocated — 
dipping others in wells — binding down others and 
pouring wine into their mouths until they died — 
exhausting everywhere the direst cruelties, and all 
in the name of Christ ! 

This is the picture which an eye-witness of the 
dragonnades has drawn; let us now see what fur- 
ther befell the personages of our history. 

At the window of a small chamber, high up in 
the turret of an old chateau, crowning a gentle ac- 
clivity, and looking on a beautiful landscape, sit 
two men of notable appearance — those whom we 
have first presented to the reader. They have 


Chap. I. changed but little, save that a species of cautious 
^jj watchfulness characterizes their demeanor, and 
Captain they are somewhat thinner. From time to time 
ofDra- they direct keen glances toward the highway lead- 
goons, ^^g ^^ ^^^ village, and upon a bridle-road, disap- 
pearing in the bright foliage of the forest. 

"Ah, well, Barthelemi," says Fontaine, with a 
deep sigh, "at last the moment has come when I 
despair for France. Yes, all is lost!" 

"I told you as much a year ago, Jacques," replies 
the soldier, "and you would not believe me. Do 
you remember your arraignment for the assemblage 
in the woods of Chatelars — our meeting in the 
Town Hall, when that villain, the Seneschal, op- 
pressed you — do you remember these pleasing 

"Yes," said Fontaine, gloomily. 

"Well, Jacques," continued the soldier, "you 
doubtless remember further, that at the time of 
your trial you were full of noble sentiments about 
the justice of the King, the power of the laws ; you 
had an abiding faith in ^confrontations/ 'recolle- 
ments,' 'factums/ and all the jargon of the courts. 
I really admired you when, with head erect, and 
flashing eyes, like Brutus or Aristides, you launched 
at the worthy Seneschal the tremendous threat that 
you would not sign your confrontation! You 
thought that you had vindicated the eternal ma- 
jesty of justice. Justice! Bah! Who speaks of law 
or justice? Justice!" continued the soldier, gloom- 
ily, "where are now all the grand ideas you clung 
to in spite of me? Where are your confrontations, 
and recoUementsf His majestic Majesty has ex- 
tended his royal hand, and not one of your legal 
forms remain! You were blinded by your sim- 
plicity and singleness of heart. You did not con- 
ceive the possibility of blood, and torture, and 
murder! You did not foresee that, in a twelve- 
month, you would see in France only a flock of 
sheep slaughtered by wolves ! I saw it all ! I saw 
it coming, and now it comes! Yes, it comes! It 


is on us! The monstrous oppression of a dotard, C hap. I . 
ruled by a vile old woman, grinds us into the very -j^j^g 
earth beneath the iron heel of a brutal soldiery! Captain 
Your confrontations and processes are a miserable of i^^a- 
dead-letter! We are in the midst of the dragon- 

The tone of the speaker was so earnest, and in- 
stinct with such gloomy passion, that a shudder 
ran through his companion's frame, and uncon- 
sciously his eyes turned toward the highway. 

"Yes, I understand," continued Dupuy, with 
gloomy coldness, "you look for them! you know 
what they are ! you are counting the moments while 
they delay. See! there is the signal of their ap- 
proach !" 

The soldier pointed as he spoke to a house em- 
bowered in woods at the distance of half a league, 
from which a dense smoke began to rise, succeeded 
almost immediately by flames, which darted from 
the windows and wrapped the whole edifice in their 
mortal embrace. 

"Sire Mouillere's, is it not?" 

"Yes, and you will soon see his wife and children 
flying on the highway, if the dragoons have not 
dashed their brains out on the lintel!" 

"Oh, my God!" said Fontaine, raising his eyes 
to heaven, with gloomy sorrow. "Why hast thou 
deserted us? What terrible crime have we com- 
mitted, that thou dost strike us with thy thunder- 

"I will tell you," said Dupuy, even more cold 
and gloomy. "Our crime has been a folding of the 
hands to sleep, a criminal inertness, non-resistance, 
cowardice ! You ask ; I tell you. We have refused 
to grasp the weapon God held out to us, and we 
are lost!" 

"All is not lost !" cried Fontaine, starting to his 
feet and grasping the hilt of his sword, with flash- 
ing eyes. "At least the combat is still possible." 

"And death," interrupted his companion, in a 
freezing tone. "You are right — death does remain 


Chap. I. to us; luckily they can't deprive us of that con- 

~ solation !" 
Captain "Death ! yes, death !" cried Fontaine, with flushed 
ofDra- cheeks. "But we'll sell our lives like men, and 
2°°°^ dearly!" 

"Jacques," said Dupuy, whose iron visage never 
once relaxed as he gazed cooly at his friend, "you 
really did mistake your vocation when you studied 
for ordination. You were born for a soldier, and 
next to praying, I believe your greatest pleasure 
would be mortal fighting. Therein you differ from 
me. I don't like it; I am weary of it. Do you see 
this old triangular sword? It has been in fourteen 
pitched battles, equally divided between myself and 
the Seigneur, my father, whose soul may God re- 
ceive! and in numerous single combats. I have 
fought a good deal for his majesty. King Louis 
XIV., and I'm tired. You wish to advance — to 
charge the dragoons. You are bloody-minded. I 
am the contrary, am decidedly a coward. Do you 
know what I wish to do?" 


"I wish simply and solely to escape — to fly — to 
leave this detestable France, dead in her trespasses 
and sins, to never more set foot upon her cursed 

"Leave France!" 

"In one week I shall go. I regret the delay; but 
I have a little scheme of getting some of that rascal 
Agoust's gold for my estate, and, to my sorrow, I 
must delay." 

"Go !" said Fontaine ; "fly ! desert the cause when 
we still have arms! when we may die defending 
our rights !" 

"Well, you can stay," said Dupuy, coolly. "I, for 
one, however, really object to being cut down by 
a set of rascally troopers, or, worse still, broken on 
the wheel. Look!" said the speaker calmly; "there 
are our friends, the dragoons, coming. In ten min- 
utes you will be tied to a horse's tail and made to 
abjure or murdered." 


"Never!" cried Fontaine, drawing his sword; "I C hap. I . 
will die before I am taken !" The 

"And your niece you love so — your betrothed?" Captain 

"Oh, my God!" cried Fontaine; "what madness g^J^nJ" 
has possessed me?" 

And sinking down, he buried his face in his 

"Yes, I will fly with you," he said, raising his 
head suddenly, "wherever you wish — anywhere! 
Life to me has no longer anything in it to render 
it desirable. Were it the good pleasure of the Lord 
I would gladly lay down my miserable existence, 
and, dying so, forget the degradation of my coun- 
try. I will fly, then ! Speak ! where shall I go with 
my poor child-niece and my betrothed?" 

"Good," said Dupuy, coolly; "I will tell you to- 
night. At present we have to deal with the dra- 
goons. Here they are." 

As he spoke, the company of dragoons, headed 
by an officer clad in a magnificent uniform, thun- 
dered into the court of the chateau. Ferocious, 
with heavily bearded faces, and blood-thirsty ex- 
pressions, these men were fit instruments for the 
work they were sent to do. They lost no time, and, 
at a sign from the officer, half a dozen leaped from 
their horses and struck heavy blows upon the 

Dupuy took a small key from his bosom, inserted 
it into a hidden orifice of the wainscoting, and the 
door of a secret closet flew open. Into this he 
pushed Fontaine, without ceremony. 

"But you — your family," said Fontaine, strugg- 
ling to issue forth again. 

"I'll take care of that," said Dupuy, coolly. 
"Don't fear, companion. Just keep quiet. And 
now I must go. Those rascals are breaking down 
my door." 

With these words Dupuy shut the door of the 
closet, and descended the staircase with the firm 
tread of a soldier who knows no such sentiment 
as fear. 


Chap. I. The great dining-room of the chateau presented 

-jjjg an appearance which was not calculated to please 

Captain the Owner. The rude and brutal soldiery were strid- 

of Dra- ijjg through the apartment, tossing about the furni- 

*'°^* ture with contemptuous indifference, and lounging 

on the fine tables and delicately-carved chairs, 

which cracked beneath them as they fell rather than 

sat upon them. 

On a handsome couch, carved in the fashion of 
the day, now known as Louis Qiiatorze, the captain 
of the dragoons had stretched himself carelessly, 
his spur tearing the rich covering at every move- 
ment of his foot. 

Madame Dupuy, who, before her marriage, had 
been the beautiful Countess Susanne Lavillon, 
stood pale and trembling at the door; and to the 
frightened lady the officer was addressing rude 
questions in relation to the whereabouts of her hus- 
band. With these questions he mingled various 
remarks which were meant for gallantry ; but any- 
thing more grossly insulting and unworthy than 
these words could scarcely be imagined, as the leers 
of sensual admiration of the dragoon were the per- 
fection of disgusting brutality. 

This was the scene which Messire Barthelemi 
Dupuy beheld as he advanced into the apartment. 
A sudden pallor of the cheek, and a flash from the 
dark, haughty eyes, greeted the spectacle; but these 
evidences of emotion instantly disappeared, and 
his face returned to its expression of iron coolness 
and calmness. 

V. — The Adversaries. 

The "Good-morning, Messire Jarnilloc," he said; 
Adyersa-Upg^lly r^^ unexpected pleasure this visit. It was 


kind in you to recollect an old comrade and bring 
your friends with you." 

The officer half rose from the couch, and said, 


"Don't appeal to me, or think our former ac- C hap. I . 
quaintance will serve you. You are in my district, '^ 
and I did not come to trifle." Adversa- 

"I am pleased to hear it. Captain," replied "®^- 
Dupuy, with the same coolness. "Will you state 
your errand? But, first, may I request you to ask 
your friend with the red beard there not to break 
the door of my buffet? If it is absolutely necessary 
to his happiness that he should see my silver, I will 
furnish him the kev." 

"Dupuy," cried the officer, coloring with rage at 
his opponent's disdainful calmness, "I did not come 
here to trifle ! And if my men are unceremonious, 
it is because no ceremony is demanded toward such 
as you." 

Dupuy inclined his head, without removing his 
eyes from the face of the dragoon, and seemed to 
wait for a further communication. 

"You are a heretic !" cried the dragoon, working 
himself into a rage to hide his embarrassment and 
shame; "I arrest you!" 

"A moment, if you please. Sire Jarnilloc," replied 
Dupuy, haughtily. "You will do nothing of the 

"How! vou dare to resist! vou dare!" 

"Sire Jarnilloc," said Dupuy, "we served to- 
gether in Flanders, and you know me well enough 
to understand that T am not often afraid without 
reason. I do not regard it as a very daring thing 
to resist you, and the gentlemen under you — armed 
as I am with what you are bound to respect." 

"Armed! then you have armed your household! 
You have laid an ambush ! Soldiers, to the rescue !" 

"Really, my dear Captain Jarnilloc," said Dupuy, 
without moving, despite the advance of the sol- 
diers, "you will make me think that you are afraid. 
Your troop is then really going to charge a single 
man, with no arms but his short sword. Is that 
your purpose, Captain?" 


Chap. I . "My purpose is to arrest and have you shot!" 
The cried the enraged dragoon — "you, and all your 

Adversa- household !" 
"es. "Scarcely." 

The calm word seemed to drive the officer to fury. 

"The ropes there !" he cried to one of his soldiers ; 
"the ropes to tie this Huguenot to my horse's tail ! 
I'll drag him every step of the way to Saintes !" 

"Me!" said Dupuy, haughtily. 

"Yes, you! you, and your pale-faced wife, who 
makes me sick !" howled the officer, pointing Dupuy 
out to his men — "Seize him !" 

"Back!" said Dupuy, laying his hand upon his 
sword. "I have that which you dare not disregard I" 

"Will you obey me?" shouted the dragoon to his 
men, who hesitated to advance upon the collected 
Huguenot. A movement was made to seize Dupuy, 
whose sword sprang from its scabbard. 

"Sire Jarnilloc," said he, "it seems that you hesi- 
tate to do what you desire — leaving the arrest of 
a single man to your troop. W^ell, Sir, I repeat 
that you will not arrest me — the hardiest of your 
troopers will not obey you — for I have the safe- 
guard of their master and yours." 

With which words Dui)uy held a strip of parch- 
ment toward the officer. It contained the simple 
words : 

"THESE to our trusty and well-beloved, Barthelemi Dupuy, 
one of our guardsmen, who has an amnesty granted him, with 
all his household, until the first day of December: any annoy- 
ance of the said Seigneur Dupuy will be at the peril of the officer 
who commands it. Such is our royal will, and, moreover, we pray 
our said trusty friend Dupuy to abjure his heresy, and return to 
the bosom of the Holy Church, in which alone is rest. 

"Done at Versailles this 30th October, in the year 1685. 


"To the Seigneur Barthelemi Dupuy, at his chateau of Velours 
in Saintogne — these, in haste — Ride!" 

This was what Messire Jarnilloc read, crumpling 
the parchment in his hand furiously. When he 
came, however, to the signature and seal, he bowed, 
sullenly, and handed back the parchment. The 


command of Louis XIV. was that of a divinity. No Chap, i. 
man in the realm, however great and powerful, ever ^jjg 
dreamed of disobeying it. Adversa- 

"You are right. Sir," said the dragoon, muttering 



like a hyena disappointed of his feast; "I have no 
more to say, except that there is nothing in the or- 
der of his Majesty forbidding a search for other 
heretics, not of your household." 

"Search," said Dupuy, coldly. 

It was done, but no one found — the hiding-place 
of Fontaine being perfectly concealed. The soldiers 
passed and repassed in front of it, without suspect- 
ing for a moment how near they were to their prey. 

In a quarter of an hour Jarnilloc sounded to 
horse, and the troop clattered out of the courtyard. 

"I will visit you again upon the first day of De- 
cember, cursed heretic that you are !" cried the dra- 
goon, shaking his clenched hand at Dupuy. "I'll 
yet lick your blood !" 

"I regret that your birth prevents my giving you 
an opportunity at present, in single combat, Mes- 
sire Jarnilloc," was Dupuy's reply, with a bow, 
which made Jarnilloc nearly faint with rage. 

"One of the canaille, really," said Dupuy, as he 
turned to his wife; "but now — to work — action!" 

VL—Two Pistol Shots. 

Dupuy dropped a heavy bar, to which a chain Two 
was affixed, across the door, and then turned to his ^^^^^ 

The expression of his countenance was absolutely 
ferocious. The assumed calmness with which he 
had encountered the captain of dragoons gave way; 
and his frame shook with rage. Extending his 
hands, he seemed unconsciously to clutch at some 
weapon; and almost a shudder of fury convulsed 
the muscles. 

The strong and burning hands were imprisoned 
in two little white ones, as soft as down : the neck, 
with its swollen and distorted arteries, was clasped 


Chapj. by two snowy arms, which drew the head of the 
Two soldier down to the dear woman's face. 
Pistol "There ! there I Barthelemi," said the lovely lady ; 
"do not agitate yourself further, nor think of those 
words this rude man addressed to me. Remember 
that they soil only himself — that they have not in- 
jured me." 

Dupuy did not reply. With clenched teeth and 
gloomy visage he bent his eyes upon the ground — 
and it was a long time before his wife could extract 
even so much as a word from him. 

At last the rage of the soldier seemed to yield to 
gloom; his arms no longer hung at his side. Tak- 
ing to his bosom the dear companion of his life, he 
pressed her to his heart in a long embrace, and 
leaned his head upon her sunny hair. 

"You are right, Susanne," he said; "you always 
are. Yes, I should not regard this brutality of a 
Avretched adventurer; and 'tis only because I can 
not punish him that I am half out of my senses. 
A sense of peril restrained me — thanks be to my 
heavenly Father that I did restrain myself. I have 
only one more prayer — 'God make me the instru- 
ment of thy vengeance on this man' — right or 
wrong, I pray it." 

"Oh, forget him, Barthelemi; he is a poor slave 
of passion." 

"Had he touched your robe I should have slain 
him where he stood ! But I boast. Ah ! the day will 
come! but now to action! Kiss me, wife. God 
keeps a blessing for me still, in you ; a blessing un- 

And Dupuy pressed a kiss upon the forehead of 
the beautiful woman, and hastily ascended to the 
apartment in which he had held the conversation 
with Fontaine. 

He was soon released ; and the two men remained 
in animated and close converse until the shades of 
evening began to fall. They then rose. 

"So it is all arranged, then," said Dupuy; "'tis 
the only path open, and I shall follow in four days." 


"Come with us — come !" Chap. I. 

"No, I should not be a true husband. My wife "^ 
shall not want in a foreign land, and I must wait Pistol 
so long. But you must go. Set out at once to bring Shots, 
your companions; I will ride part of the way with 

They hastened down, and just as the darkness 
descended, mounted their horses. Fontaine was 
armed to the teeth, and rode a black Arabian, the 
finest of his stud. He led another horse by the 

Madame Dupuy embraced her husband and his 
friend, courageously bade them God-speed, and they 
departed in silence. 

A short ride brought them opposite the house of 
the unfortunate Mouillere. It was only a smoulder- 
ing ruin; and within a few paces of a dying fire, 
made of broken furniture, some drunken troopers 
were sleeping. They had been left to keep watch 
for any heretics who lurked near, and had embraced 
the opportunity of getting drunk. 

Within ten feet of these miscreants lay the dead 
body of Messire Mouillere, and beside him the 
corpses of his wife and her infant child. The body 
of the lady was half naked, and shockingly burnt; 
the babe had been killed by the blow of a horse- 
man's pistol. The drunkenness of blood was needed 
in addition to that of wine. 

The two men reined in their animals for a 
moment, and gazed with heaving bosoms upon the 
terrible scene. Hatred mounted to Fontaine's 
countenance, like a black shadow. Taking from his 
belt a pistol, he cocked it, and set spur to his horse, 
with a hoarse cry, which sounded like the roar of 
a lion. 

Dupuy caught the bridle, however, and threw the 
animal upon his haunches. 

"You prevent my vengeance upon these mon- 
sters!" cried Fontaine; "you stop me in executing 
justice !" 


Chap. I. "I stop joii from committing the act of a mad- 
Xwo nian," said Dupuy, with a suppressed shudder. 
Pistol "The report of that pistol will send you to the gal- 
Shots. lows, with all you love!" 

Fontaine uncocked the weapon, murmuring, "The 
sword, then I" 

"No ; leave their punishment to Heaven. In due 
time, God will strike them." 

"Who goes there?" cried one of the troopers, 
staggering to his feet, and leveling his pistol at the 
horsemen. The challenge was followed bv the dis- 
charge of the pistol, to which Fontaine's replied 
like an echo, and the trooper fell forward mortally 

"Cornel" said Dupuy, "there is not a moment to 
be lost. In ten minutes we shall be intercepted !" 

"Good!" said Fontaine. "At least one devil less 
soils the earth." 

And the two horsemen put spurs to their animals, 
and disappeared like shadows, just as the country 
side began to be alive with shouts and galloping 


VIL—Tke Wounded Wolf. 

The Half an hour before daylight, on the same night, 
"Wounded ^jjg gateway of Dupuy's chateau was cautiously 
opened, and Fontaine rode in, accompanied by 
three females. 

The two who rode the spare horse were Anne 
Boursiquot, the betrothed of Fontaine, and her sis- 
ter, Elizabeth Boursiquot. Before him, upon the 
pommel of his saddle, Fontaine bore his little niece, 
Jeannette Forestier, 

The women were received in the outstretched 
arms of Dupuy and the Countess, and the foaming 
horses were led away to the stable. 

"W^elcome! welcome!" said Dupuy. "Thanks 
be to Heaven that you have safely passed the patrol 
and sentinels. Did you meet any?" 

"Yes," said Fontaine; "and at one moment I 
thought I should have to send the women on, and 


sell my life as dearly as possible. But a cloud swept chap. i. 
over the moon, and we gained the forest before they ^^ 

could stop us." Wounded 

"Good! Heaven watches over us," said Dupuy, "^o^^- 
raising his eyes to Heaven. 

"And my little Jeannette," he continued, caress- 
ing the hair of the girl, "she bears herself bravely, 
and her roses have not fled. But come, friends, to 
your apartments; you will need all the sleep you 
can obtain, for the journey to the sea-shore will 
consume the whole of to-morrow night." 

The females departed with Madame Dupuy, and 
the friends drew together and earnestly discussed 
their plans — Fontaine moistening his dry lips with 

"All is now ready, then," said Dupuy, at length ; 
"you will set out to-morrow at nightfall, and by 
daylight you will be beyond pursuit, and not far 
from Tremblade, upon which the dragoons have 
not yet descended. You will go to the house of 
Master Beltonnet in the town, communicate with 
my friend. Captain Johnson, of the brig Ports- 
mouth, and he will convey you for a few pistoles to 
England; there I will soon join you. Is it all ar- 

Fontaine took his friend's hand, and would have 
pressed it to his lips, but Dupuy withdrew it, and 
embraced his companion. 

"To bed now," he said; "gain as much sleep as 

Dupuy then saw that the outlets of the mansion 
were thoroughly secured, and soon silence reigned 
throughout the whole chateau. 

At nightfall on the following evening, Fontaine 
armed himself to the teeth, wrapped a cloak around 
his weapons, and silently grasping the hands of 
Dupuy and his wife, mounted his Arabian. The 
three women traveled in a light carriage of Du- 
puy's ; and they thus set forward through the dark- 


Chap. I . Thirty minutes after their departure the sound 
^ijg of horses' hoofs was heard, and a company of dra- 
Wounded goons, headed by Jarnilloc, descended like a thun- 
Woif. der-bolt upon the chateau. 

"Where are the heretics?" cried the furious cap- 
tain of dragoons. "Burn the nest of traitors! 
Smoke out the enemies of his Majesty !" 

"Is it myself and my household to whom you al- 
lude, sire Captain?" said Dupuy, with his iron 
calmness. "If so, I beg you will proceed. Having 
lodged my safeguard, under his Majesty's hand, 
with the cure of the parish, I can afford to be killed, 
as you will be shot by command of his Majesty — if 
/ do not kill you." 

"Heretic !" cried the furious dragoon, "you har- 
bor traitors!" 

"Very well, come in and search, Messire Jarnilloc. 
I pray you not to break my furniture, however; it 
might displease his Majesty." 

"To the devil with your furniture!" cried the 
officer. "Corporal! take ten men and search the 

The corporal obeyed, and we need not say failed 
to find Fontaine. 

"No one. Captain," reported the corporal, making 
the military salute. 

"And vet I had exact information that a traitor 
named Fontaine took refuge here, after murdering 
one of my soldiers last night." 

"Gone, Captain," said the corporal. 

"Ah, yes ! fled ! Scatter at once in pursuit !" 

With these words the officer put spur to his horse, 
and took to the road which Fontaine had followed, 
at full speed. The rest of the soldiers dispersed 
themselves over the surrounding country. 

"Oh, my God !" murmured Madame Dupuy, cling- 
ing to her husband, and turning as pale as death; 
"if they come up with them !" 

Dupuy's lips were firmly set together. 

"I ordered my horse," he said, "when I saw these 



men coming. There he comes! bar up securely, Chap. i . 
wife, and open to no one !" The 

With these words Dupuy seized his triangularwounded 
sword, and vaulting into the saddle, disappeared at ^°^^- 
full gallop upon Jarnilloc's track. In fifteen min- 
utes, such was the speed at which he advanced, the 
figure of his adversary came in sight. Five minutes 
more brought him abreast of the dragoon, beneath 
the drooping boughs. 

"Turn, wretch !" cried Dupuy, drawing his sword. 
"You dared to insult my wife, myself, my friends. 
You shall die! Defend yourself!" 

And he threw himself upon the captain of dra- 
goons, aiming a blow at his heart. 

Jarnilloc was brave, but the fury of Dupuy cowed 
him; he struck out almost at random, and the 
weapon of the soldier glided under his guard, and 
pierced his breast. The point of Jarnilloc's sword 
drew blood from Dupuy's arm, but the combat was 
over in a moment — though the dragoon's wound 
was not mortal. 

"In fair combat you will testify, Messire," said 
Dupuy, putting up his sword and saluting his ad- 
versary, who retained the saddle with difficulty. 
"I will not murder you, as you would me, under 
similar circumstances. If you annoy me further, 
however, Messire, I will kill you like a dog!" 

And the soldier turned his horse and rode back 
to his chateau. 

"That will break up the pursuit, I think," he mut- 
tered, "and I can not leave Susanne alone, with 
these fiends about. I must hasten my arrange- 
ments, the country is getting too hot for me. Pray 
God that Jacques and his family may arrive safely 
at Tremblade !" 

An hour afterward Jarnilloc passed the gateway 
of the chateau, supported in the saddle by two 
troopers. As he continued his way, an expression 
of ferocious hatred, impossible to describe, distorted 
his pale features, and his red eyes glared. Dupuy 



C hap. I. watched him until he disappeared, and then turning 
to his wife, said, 

"There is the wounded wolf! Take care, my 
lamb! He will tear you for this if he can. For 
myself I fear nothing. 

VIII. — The Fugitives. 

The Fontaine pushed his horse to full gallop, at the 
Z^rfl' ^^d^ ^^ ^^^ fl^'iiig carriage; and the cortege traveled 
at this rapid rate throughout the night. 

At dawn, as Dupuy had predicted, they reached 
Tremblade ; and were soon housed at Master Belton- 
uet's. This man was to act as their pilot to the 
Portsmouth, which lay outside the harbor; he had 
been selected for this duty because he spoke 

The captain sent word that he would sail very 
early on the next day, and would pass between the 
isle of Oleron and the main land. If the fugitives 
awaited him on the sands near the forest of Arvert, 
he would send a boat ashore and take them off. 

At the appointed time Fontaine loaded two 
horses with his few effects and repaired to the spot 
designated. But there was delay at the Custom- 
house, and the brig could not sail. Meanwhile the 
fugitives waited in a state of unspeakable suspense, 
and the entire day was thus passed. 

The Catholic priest of Tremblade heard that 
some Protestants were about to escape, and hurried 
to the spot. Two Huguenot fishermen, however, 
misled him; and he returned, thinking the report 

At nightfall they were forced to return to Trem- 
blade, where they were harbored in the house of an 
abjurer. He entertained them for the whole of the 
next day, but, growing terribly frightened, at night- 
fall turned them all out, saying, "I have damned 
my own soul to save my property, and I am not go- 
ing to pay the 1000 crowns fine for harboring you. 
Take your chance elsewhere, or abjure like me." 



Half an hour after they had left this man's house Chap, i. 
a troop of soldiers went to it and examined it ; they xhe 
had received information. Fugi- 

The captain of the Portsmouth sent word at this *^^®®* 
crisis that he was watched, and could not assist 
them. Fontaine did not despair, however. On the 
same evening he hired a small shallop, embarked 
his party, and safely passed the pinnaces that 
guarded the port, and the fort of Oleron. 

At ten o'clock next morning they dropped anchor 
to wait for the Portsmouth, the boatman being in- 
structed, in case of pursuit, to run the boat ashore, 
when Sauve qui peut! was to be the course of pro- 

The agreement with Captain Johnson had been 
that when they saw him, they were to make them- 
selves known by hoisting a sail, and letting it fall 
three times. About three o'clock in the afternoon 
the Portsmouth hove in sight, but the custom-house 
officers and pilot were still on board. Soon, how- 
ever, these officials left her in their boat, and the 
brig bore down straight toward them. 

Fontaine's heart bounded with joy and gratitude, 
but his pleasure was of short duration. A royal 
frigate of the French navy appeared, and with all 
sails set, came straight toward them. This was one 
of the vessels constantly kept on the coast to pre- 
vent the escape of Protestants; when such were 
taken, the women were sent to convents, and the 
men to work in the horrible galleys. 

The French frigate ordered the English ship to 
cast anchor, boarded her, and searched every nook 
and corner for fugitives. Not finding any, the 
French captain ordered the Englishman to sail in- 
stantly, which order was obeyed, leaving the de- 
spairing Huguenots behind. 

Fontaine almost yielded to despair, but he knelt 
and prayed, and was strengthened. Suddenly as 
the French frigate bore down upon them, a feint 
suggested itself. 


Chap. I . "Cover us all up in the bottom of the boat with 

-Pjjg an old sail," he said to the boatman. "Then hoist 

Fugi- your sail and go right toward the frigate, pretend- 

tives. iijg ^Q endeavor to gain Tremblade. If they hail 

you, say you are from Rochelle, If they ask what 

you have on board, say nothing but ballast; and it 

would be well for you and your son to counterfeit 

drunkenness^ tumbling about in the boat, and then 

you can, as if by accident, let the sail fall three 

times, and so inform the English captain who 

we are." 

The order was instantly obeyed, the fugitives 
covered with an old sail, and the boat passed within 
pistol-shot of the frigate, which hailed her. The 
reply was as Fontaine had directed. 

"But what made you cast anchor?" 

"I hoped the wind would change, and we could 
make Tremblade, but it's still too strong for us." 

As he spoke the boatman cursed his son, who 
had dropped the sail, as had been agreed. The 
father left the helm and pretended to strike him 
with a rope-end. The son cried out lustily, and the 
people in the frigate ordered the elder to desist, or 
they would come and treat him likewise. 

"The rascal's as drunk as a hog," said the boat- 
man, returning to the helm. "Hoist the sail there !" 

The son let it fall twice in succession, as he pre- 
tended to obey. 

"Return to Rochelle — the wind is too rough!" 
came from the frigate. 

"Yes, Captain," said the boatman, joyfully, for 
that was exactly the direction of the English ship, 
and the boat fled before the wind toward the Eng- 
lishman, through the yawning waves of the rising 
storm. They got safe on board while the frigate 
was still in sight, and the brig instantly put to sea. 

Kneeling upon the spray-covered deck, with his 
arms around his niece and his betrothed, Fontaine 
returned devout thanks to God. As he rose from 
his knees, the coast of France was disappearing in 
the darkness. 


"Adieu!" he said, sadly, extending his hands C hap. I . 
toward his native soil. "Adieu, forever!"* 

IX.— The Priest. 

On the morning of the 30th November, Messire The 
Barthelemi Dupuy was informed that the cure of Priest, 
the neighboring village wished to see him. This 
worthy man was sincerely attached to Dupuy, who 
had befriended him in former times, and he now 
came to endeavor to make his friend abjure and 
become a Catholic. 

For two hours the worthy man continued his as- 
saults on the Protestant convictions of Dupuy, 
with no opposition from that gentleman worthy of 
attention. At last he ceased, and asked if he could 
still remain a schismatic, and undergo the terrible 
punishment of such in the world to come, and even 
in the present world. 

"My good cure," said Dupuy, coolly, "I have 
listened to you with great attention, and have duly 
appreciated your arguments. I have been much 
struck with their force, especially this one in the 
last clause of your discourse." 

"The future punishment, eh?" sighed the worthy 

"No, excuse me, the punishment my heresy will 
entail upon me, 'even in the present world,' as you 
say. Now that is talking to the point! In other 
w^ords, if I do not abjure, I shall be tortured, shot, 
or burnt — is it not so?" 

The cure shook his head, sadly. 

"I very much fear that it will so result !" 

"And you think I should abjure?" 

"I pray you to." 

"Why, good cure?" said Dupuy. "I am unfortu- 
nately a soldier ; I have a ridiculous, absurd, foolish 
partiality for not deserting my colors. You see I 
have fought under the Lutheran flag, and I must 
have some reason to change my party and embrace 

♦All here related is literally true. 


Chap. I. the cause of his Excellency the Pope of Rome — 
^jjg the opposing banner. You will excuse me, but this 
Priest, seems to me reasonable." 

"Have I not given you good reasons, my son? 
Have I not — " 

'Talked about the Saints? Yes, a good deal, my 
worthy cure. But I have not yet made up my mind 
to believe in them. I even doubt the doctrines of 
Purgatory, Indulgences, Absolution, and the Im- 
maculate Conception." 

The cure shook his head as if these words both 
pained and shocked him. 

"But how is it possible for you to doubt these 
tenets of the Holy Church, my son?" he said. "You 
cause me very great suffering." 

"I am truly sorry; but I can not say otherwise, 
though I fully appreciate the kindness of your 

" 'Twas duty !" 

"Well, others would have considered it differ- 
ently. They would have endeavored to convert me 
by holding up a picture of the fagot or the halter. 
Now 'tis probable that it will come to that, is it 

The cure heaved a deep sigh. 

"I fear it is," he said. 

"And vou would be compelled to inform upon 

"A terrible duty again," sighed the poor cure. 
"Yet the Holy Father inculcates the necessity." 

"So that vou, who have eaten at mv table, taken 

« 7 »/ 7 

my arm, talked familiarly with my wife, and slept 
in security beneath my roof — you would be com- 
pelled to point me out as a heretic, to bring the 
dragoons to my door — to fit the halter round my 
neck, or the fagots around my limbs! This would 
be your bounden duty, would it not, Aymer?" 

The old familiar name put the finishing stroke 
to the terrific appeal. With bloodless cheeks, brows 
bathed in perspiration, and trembling lips, the un- 
happy cure murmured, 


"It would be my duty !" Chap. I. 

"Well, my friend/' said Dupuy, coolly, "you can ~^ 
scarcely feel surprise when I hesitate to embrace a Priest, 
religion which makes such action on your part 
necessary. Now I am only a poor devil of a Hugue- 
not, you see ; but before I would betray you, Aymer, 
I would cut off my right hand and throw it in the 
face of the barbarous monster, whether he were 
Emperor, Pope, or King, who dared to tempt me !" 

"Oh my son ! my son ! think what you say ! The 
Holy Father — the Vicegerent of God — a barbarous 
monster !" 

"True, I was wrong," said Dupuy, coldly. "That 
is dangerous, and 'tis your duty to inforni on me." 

"I must — I should — I will try not to!" stam- 
mered the poor cure. "Oh ! why am I tried thus — 
with such cruelty? Yes, Barthelemi, 'tis my duty, 
and were you my own mother's son I must perform 
my duty!" 

Dupuy rose calmly, and, with a side-look at the 
cure, said: 

"Perhaps I might change my views, good father. 
Wlio knows? Stranger things have happened. His 
Majesty's safeguard, which you have returned to 
me, expires to-morrow, and the question seriously 
occurs — torture and death, or the sacrament?" 

"Oh, abjure, my son ! my dear Barthelemi, abjure, 
and save yourself and me from agony !" 

"Well, who knows what I may do, my good 
Aymer? Don't inform on me until the day after 
to-morrow; then you will know my decision." 

"I will not," said the poor cure; "and now fare- 
well. Consider the life of your immortal soul, my 
son. I will fast and pray for you." 

W^ith these words the cure went sadly out, and 
returned to the village. 

X — The Advocate and the Tailor. 

Half an hour after the departure of the priest. The 
Dupuy sent a servant to the village to request the ^n^t^e* 
presence of Messire Agoust, advocate. Tailor! 


Chap. I . Agoust hastened to obey, and was closeted with 

The the master of the chateau for an hour. 
Advocate At the end of that time he came out, bowing and 

and the • -1 - 7 » 

Tailor. «crapmg, and went away. 

"Aha !" he muttered ; "so we get rid of you at last, 
do we, Messire Barthelemi Dupuy? I am glad of 
it, and I have not the least intention of informing 
on you. I buy your estate at one-third of its value, 
and shall be the Seigneur Agoust hereafter, while, 
if I informed upon you, the fine old chateau would 
be escheated to the crown and lost to me. I am 
very well content with my bargain, Messire, and 
will disprove the proverb, which declares that law- 
yers never are honest, at least until I get my title- 
deeds. I beat you down four thousand crowns, and 
am well content, my good Messire Dupuy." 

An hour afterward Agoust returned with a heavy 
bag of gold at his girdle, which he counted out be- 
fore Dupuy. He then received the title-deeds of the 

"A pleasant journey, Messire," he said, "to you 
and madame." 

"Thank you," said Dupuy, coolly, "for your good 

"Ah! you are not alarmed, then, at my knowl- 
edge of your intended flight?" 

"Why should I be, my good Messire Agoust? You 
are a sensible man ; you have abjured to retain your 
life and property; you would prefer buying my 
cliateau at Velours at one-fourth of its value rather 
than compromise upon seeing me roasted, eh?" 

"Your lordship is very profound in human 
motives," said the attorney, smirking, "and I swear 
you are correct. You may go in safety as far as 
I am concerned." 

And, bowing, he departed. 

"Nevertheless, I'll not trust you, rascal," said 
Dupuy, looking after him. "To-morrow your in- 
formation comes too late. 'Tis almost dark — time 
for Pourtigot to arrive. Ah ! there he is." 


Pourtigot was the tailor of the village^ and Dii- Chap, i . 
puy had ordered him to have ready in six hours the ^he 
complete costume of a gentleman's page. Advocate 

The tailor now entered, bowing and smiling more ^^^^^^^ 
impressively even than Agoust had done. 

" 'Tis all prepared, my lord," he said, unrolling 
the costume; "a beautiful piece of Flander's cloth — 
most exquisite. And see this velvet." 

"It really is very handsome," said Dupuy, negli- 
gently, "and my new page will win the heart of 
every girl upon the village green; eh, Messire 

"At the very least, I should say, my lord," re- 
plied the tailor, bowing. 

"Well, my friend," said Dupuy, counting out a 
handful of crowns, "there is your money, and some- 
thing more. If you should chance to be passing in 
a week or so, call here at my chateau, and you will 
probably receive an order for the full costume of 
a gentleman. It will be needed. Good-day, Messire 

And Dupuy bowed his head in token of dismissal. 
Messire Pourtigot went away overjoyed. He had 
received thrice the value of his work, and the 
promise of a new order, "The full costume of a 
gentleman would be needed." It is rather in the 
nature of a digression to say that Messire Agoust 
did not indorse the order — only insulted the honest 
tailor — the week after. 

No sooner had the man disappeared than Du- 
puy's manner lost all its negligence. He rose 
rapidly to his feet, and called "Susanne! Susanne!" 

The lovely woman appeared so suddenly, that it 
was plain she had been listening and watching. 

"There is no time to be lost," said Dupuy, hur- 
riedly; "put on this page's costume; take all your 
jewels, your Bible, and psalm-book, and bring 
hither some bread and wine, while I put on my 
uniform and arm myself. Quick! There is not a 
moment to lose! It is growing dark, and before 


C hap. I. morning we must be far away, if we would escape 
the fagot or the gallows. Lose no time !" 

XI. — The Flight to the Frontier. 

The In twenty minutes the beautiful woman re-ap- 
to?he P^^i'^d, clad in the rich page's costume of brown 
Frontier, cloth and velvet. It consisted of a coat, slashed 
and decorated with embroidery, a long waistcoat, 
buttoning nearly up to the chin, beneath which a 
snowy ruffle just revealed itself, loosely-fitting knee- 
breeches, and Spanish shoes reaching midway to 
the knee. The flexible tops of chamois leather could 
easily be pulled up, so as to protect the delicate 
limbs in riding. The beautiful hair of the young 
lady had been quickly gathered up, and secured be- 
neath the dark cap, with its floating feather. This, 
and a handsome cloth cloak depending from one 
shoulder, completed the costume. 

The Countess, thus accoutred, resembled a small 
and delicate youth of exquisitely proportioned fig- 
ure, except that no boy, however bashful, ever 
blushed half so deeply as she did when her husband 

''There! there! sweet!" said Dupuy, hastily; "let 
us lose no time in comments. Your costume is un- 
pleasant, that is easy to understand ; but if it takes 
you safely over the frontier, and gives you to my 
arms, 'twill answer every purpose. Let us now 
hasten to swallow some bread and wine. We shall 
need it." 

Dupuy, ordinarily so calm and resolute, seemed 
at this decisive moment to be possessed by a demon 
of haste, almost of trepidation. It was because all 
that he held dearest in the world was staked upon 
the cast of a die : the events of the next few hours 
would determine the complexion of his whole future 

He devoured the dry bread with ravenous haste, 
washed it down with huge gulps of wine, and forced 
the Countess to do likewise. 


A careless observer would have said that a soldier Chap. I. 
armed to the teeth, and a handsome lady's page in rj.^^ 
gala costume, had laid a wager who could eat and Flight 
drink the most in a given time. p*° *^? 

Dupuy from moment to moment raised his head, 
paused in his devouring attack upon the viands, 
and listened. Nothing was heard but the sobbing 
of the wintry wind through the evergreens and 
oaks; darkness and desolation seemed to reign over 
the wide land and in the chateau. 

At last Dupuy rose. Standing thus in the rays 
of the single lamp he presented a striking spectacle. 
He was clad in his uniform as king's guardsman, 
and in his belt was thrust the short triangular 
sword which we have so frequently referred to ; be- 
side it were secured in the same manner three or 
four heavy pistols. Slung behind, beneath his 
cloak, was the bag of gold paid to him by Agoust. 

As he thus rose to his feet the sound of hoofs was 
heard at the back window. 

Dupuy looked cautiously out, and made a sign 
of satisfaction. 

"It is Rayonnet," he said, in a low tone; "all is 

And drawing the Countess with his arm, he took 
a last look at the portraits of his ancestors, and 
hastily descended to the court-yard. 

"Make haste, Seigneur," whispered the old gray- 
headed groom. "I thought I heard horses' hoofs in 
the direction of the village." 

"Ah! the dragoons? Was there a clatter?" 

"Yes, yes. Seigneur ! Make haste ! I hear them 
coming plainly!" 

Dupuy raised the Countess into the saddle with 
a single movement, and vaulted on his own animal, 
which was a black of great size and strength. 

"Yes," said Dupuy, "now / hear them too. I hear 
Agoust's voice, the hound! He has betrayed me! 
But we have the start! Rayonnet, if you would 
follovv^ me, come to Amsterdam; you know the 
way — we were there together ! There's gold ! Come !" 


Chap. I . "For God's sake, Seigneur!" cried the faithful 
-Pjjg servant, "don't think of me. There they are ! They 
Flight are coming on like a whirlwind, shouting fit to 
to the burst them ! In another moment you are lost !" 

Dupuy replied by shaking his clenched hand 
toward the dragoons, muttering an exclamation of 
hatred, and seizing the bridle of the Countess's 

In another instant they were out of the little 
grassy court-yard, and had disappeared like shad- 
owy phantoms beneath the drooping boughs of the 

As they did so, Jarnilloc, at the head of his 
troopers, and accompanied by the traitor Agoust, 
burst into the chateau uttering howls of rage and 
blood-thirsty triumph at his anticipated vengeance. 

With a yell of furious joy he broke down the 
door, and at the head of his dragoons, rushed with 
curses and cries into the great dining-room, whose 
walls seemed to shudder at the terrific shouts. 
Above, the calm, serene, old nobleman on canvas 
looked down with a tranquil gaze upon the scene. 

"Gone!" cried Agoust. "He has fled, and you 
are too late. Captain !" 

"Rascal!" cried Jarnilloc, seizing the advocate 
by the throat, "this is thy fault ! I will squeeze thy 
cursed eyeballs out !" 

And he grasped the advocate's throat until he 
was black in the face. Agoust fell upon his knees 
and begged for mercy. He could tell by what road 
they fled, he pleaded, and they might be overtaken ; 
they were only a man and woman. 

"Good!' cried the furious dragoon, whose rage 
and hatred gave him supernatural strength despite 
his wound. "Six men in the saddle, and you, too, 
rascally advocate ! The rest stay and cut to pieces 
everything in this cursed house!" 

In another moment Jarnilloc was dashing at full 
speed on the road indicated by the despairing ad- 
vocate, who thus saw his property ruined, but dared 
say nothing. 


The road was a cross-cut, debouching upon the Chap. I. 
main highway, which Dupuy must take to reach ~xhe^ 
the frontier; and such was the furious speed of the Flight 
troop that ere long they saw the moonlight glim- *° *^? 
mering in the opening forest above the high road. 

Jarnilloc uttered a howl of triumph as he caught 
the sound of horses at a rapid gallop. Dupuy and 
the Countess came on at full speed, and Jarnilloc 
rushed to meet them, discharging his pistol at his 

The ball missed Dupuy, but struck the Countess 
full in the breast. The delicate form reeled in the 
saddle, and fell forward on the horse's mane. 

Dupuy uttered a hoarse roar, and leveled his 
pistol at Jarnilloc. The ball pierced his heart, and 
letting the bridle fall, the captain of dragoons 
rolled beneath his horse's feet — dead. 

Dupuy's sword leaped from its scabbard, and 
seizing with his left hand the Countess's bridle, he 
passed like a thunder-bolt through his enemies, . 
dealing mortal blows as he passed — and in a mo- 
ment his splendid animal had borne him beyond 

"Oh, my God !" he cried, as he saw the form of 
the Countess rise erect, "you are not wounded, 

"God spared me !" said the lady, taking from her 
bosom her book of Psalms. "See, the ball struck 
this, and I am unhurt !" 

"Praise the Lord, O my soul!" cried the Hugue- 
not, "Blessed be His holy name! Now let us ride!" 

And, followed by the dragoons uttering yells of 
rage, Dupuy and the Countess drove their fine ani- 
mals to furious speed ; and at every bound increased 
the distance between themselves and their pursuers. 

"I would have turned and died yonder, in the 
midst of my enemies," said Dupuy. "I should never 
have survived you. But we are saved !" 

And they continued their flight — the cries of 
their pursuers becoming fainter and fainter as they 
dashed on. 


Chap. I. Almost without stopping to procure food — look- 

-Pjjg ing upon every side for enemies — trembling at the 

Flight very sound of their horses' hoofs — and praying, 

to the even during their headlong career, to the God of 

'their faith to preserve them, and conduct them 

safely to the land of promise which they fled to, 

rather than abjure their religion — thus, weary and 

faint, but with no thought of yielding, with forms 

drooping in the saddle but still bent to the task — 

in this manner did the fugitives pass over league 

after league, and through province after province, 

and finally neared the frontier. 

They were about to pass the station where the 
Custom-house officers and a body of troops were 
posted to guard the entrance into the kingdom, 
when suddenly a dragoon, mounted upon a power- 
ful horse, placed himself in the way. 

Dupuy collected all his resolution to meet this 
conclusive trial. 

"Stop, Messire !" said the dragoon ; "be i)leased 
to check your horse. No one passes here without 
giving an account of himself. Come witli me." 

"I will do nothing of the sort!" said Dupuy. 

"Ah, my good gentleman ; then I will arrest you !" 

"You will not presume to," returned Dupuy, 
drawing his triangular sword with his right hand 
and presenting the letter of Louis XIV. with the 
other. "Now, Messire dragoon, I am one of the

The soldier drew back with a low bow. He could 
not read, but he recognized the royal seal, and the 
name of the great divinity "Louis." He would as 
soon have endeavored to dispute the will of a god. 

"Pass, Messire," he said, "and pardon my chal- 
lenge. We are good soldiers of his Majesty, and 
would be sorry to cause you any inconvenience in 
dispatching the King's business. If your lordship 
would like to stop and empty a cup, we shall be 


delighted to entertain you. Your guardsman's uni- chap. i . 
form is quite sufficient introduction !" -pj^g 

"Thanks," said Dupuy, "but I must hasten on." Flight 

"So quick? Your page looks weary — a very totj? 
handsome boy! Come, Messire page! induce the 
Seigneur to draw rein for a moment." 

"I can not, Sieur." 

"Ah ! he is a determined master, is he?" said the 
dragoon, smiling. 

"A very good master, Messire." 

"Perhaps something more," laughed the soldier, 
keenly scrutinizing the feminine figure of the 
Countess. "Seigneur guardsman, you have really 
a beautiful companion there.'" 


"Yes ! Why 'tis plain your page is nothing less 
than a girl." 

"Pshaw, Messire! what are you dreaming of? 
But I have no time to talk! Give you good-day, 
Messire — I have the honor to salute you !" 

And making a sign to his pretended page, Dupuy 
put spurs to his horse, and passed on at full speed, 
accompanied by the Countess. In half an hour 
they passed beneath the dense foliage of a wood 
of Germany, checked their foaming horses in a 
secluded glade, and looking around saw that no 
signs of man were visible. 

Thev were saved ! 

Dupuy tied the panting animals to a tree, lifted 
his wife from the saddle, and in an instant she was 
weeping in his arms, pressed to his beating heart. 

" 'I waited patiently for the Lord, and he inclined 
unto me, and heard my cry,' " said the soldier. 
" 'He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, 
out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock. 
He called me — then said I, Lo, I come.' " 

" 'Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from 
me, O Lord,'" murmured the weeping Countess; 
" 'let thy loving-kindness and thy truth continually 
preserve me.' " 


Chap. I . And the true wife clung closer to her true hus- 
The band. 

Flight ^n(j there in the silent wood, the brave soldier 
Frontfer.^iicl devoted woman knelt, and offered up a prayer 
of gratitude for their deliverance. In those days 
strong meu prayed, and died or left lands and coun- 
try for their faith, and God gave them duly the 
fruition of the promise of the "life that now is" 

Heart pressed to heart, the good Seigneur Dupuy 
and his brave wife prayed long and fervently, and 
then rose and went upon their way. 

XII. — In Virginia. 

In Our true chronicle is told ; and we need not pause 
Virginia. ^Q comment on it here, or point the spirit and the 

Long years afterward in Monican-town. on the 
banks of the noble James River, in Virginia, an 
aged soldier lay upon his death-bed, with a kneeling 
woman weeping at his side, and children watching 
the pale face through tears. 

"Don't cry, Susanne," said Messire Dupuy. "I 
am only going home, whither you, true wife, will 
follow me. Do you know what we said in the woodg 
of Germany? ^I waited patiently for the Lord, and 
he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.' Blessed 
be his name! In him and the blessed Jesus is my 
trust — I who have lived and now die a true Hugue- 

The faint voice faltered, and a ray of sunlight 
falling on the snowy hair, lit it up gloriously. 

"And to you, my children," continued the dying 
gentleman, "I bequeath an untainted name, which 
you in turn should bear worthily. Jacques," he 
continued, addressing the eldest, "take my old 
sword there, and make use of it in a good cause 
only; it has never been drawn in a bad one. Fight 
for your country and your faith, so God shall bless 
you. Imitate your godfather, Jacques de la Fon- 


taine, of noble memory. And now, my children, chap.i. 
take my blessing." ~^ 

They knelt with sobs, and the hand of the dying Virginia, 
soldier rested in turn upon every forehead. 

As the last words were uttered he fell faintly 
back, and a sigh only marked the passage of the 
true gentleman from earth to heaven — from time 
to eternity. 

It was the bright sunshine of Virginia, the new 
land, which rested last upon his forehead ; but this 
was his home now, loved and cherished like the old, 
old home in France. 

He died as he had lived, a true Huguenot. No 
better epitaph is needed. 

In addition to statements made in "The 
Story of a Huguenot's Sword," there are 1685. 
records preserved by the older descendants of 
Bartholomew Dupuy which throw light on his story of 
escape. The flight of himself and wife ^^ord 
through the country, from the western to the firmed, 
eastern frontier, occupied some eighteen days. 
He was frequently interrogated as to his busi- 
ness and speed, but replied that he was the 
Eong's officer and was on business which de- 
manded haste; and when more particularly 
pressed would add that he had the King's 
orders in his pocket. As he neared the 
eastern frontier, which was more securely and 
strictly guarded to apprehend refugees, he 
was more frequently and pressingly inter- 
rupted, but with the polite brevity of one clad 
in a courtier's uniform, his word was a suffi- 
cient passport. It was on his last day's ride, 
and to the last stationed guard, that he had to 
expose the King's signature, attached no 
doubt to his certificate of amnesty, before he 
was allowed to pass. The book of Psalms 
which stopped the bullet and saved his wife's 


Chap. I . life, I have been frequently told, is still pre- 
served by one of the descendants through his 
son John James, and his granddaughter 
Olympia Trabue. On reaching German soil 
and dismounting, it was the 40th Psalm which 
he and his wife chanted. It seems to have been 
his original intention to go at once to England, 
but for some reason he and his wife remained 
in Germany, or elsewhere, fourteen years, of 
which time we have no account of them at all. 

1699. In 1699, they went, (we think from Geneva, 
England. Switzerland), to England upon the public 
invitation of King William, promising to 
refugee emigrants to the colonies, in a free 
passage, and to give them freedom of religion. 
Beginning in the spring of the year 1700, 

Four seven hundred French Protestant refugees, in 
^ijll^' four separate fleets, at intervals of some 
months, embarked from England to America^ 
with Marquis de la Muce at their head, and 
were finally landed in Virginia. There were 
three ministers of the Gospel and two physi- 
cians who accompanied the expedition. The 
ministers were Claude Philippe de Richeburg, 
Benjamin de Joux, and Louis Latane. The 
physicians were Castaing (Chastain?), and 
La Sosee. Of some two hundred of those 
Huguenot refugees, a settlement was formed 
at Manakintown in King William Parish, 
about eighteen miles above Richmond, on the 
south side of James River, in that part of 
Henrico which is now Powhatan County, Va. 

King The King William Parish was a body of land, 
^aJSr of ten thousand acres, which was granted by 
act of the General Assembly, December 5, 
1700, to Huguenot refugees. It had been occu- 
pied by the Monacan Indians, a warlike tribe, 
which had withstood the power of Powhatan, 


but had disappeared before the whites. From Chap. i. 
one of those fleets, (we think the 4th), Bar- 
tholomew Dupuy, his wife, and their children 
landed on American soil at Jamestown, Va., Arrival 
and finally made their permanent residence in 
in the Parish. All of their children had been ^^^"^a. 
born in Germany, or elsewhere, prior to their 
immigration. The settlers of the Parish were 
exempted from the payment of all taxes for 
seven years, and were allowed to support 
their minister in their own way. The land 
was to be divided among the families in 
tracts of 133 acres, and a portion of the most 
valuable was to be set apart for the support 
of their minister, and the supply of their 
church pulpit during its vacancy. In the 
original settlement they built a church, where 
one still stands, and worshipped twice per 
Sabbath, and also maintained worship in their 
families thrice per day. In the same settle- 
ment they also built a schoolhouse and 
educated their children. 

That these immigrants endured many hard- 
ships for a number of years before they pat- 
ented their tracts of land may be gathered 
from the following extract : 

"The State of the French Refugees." 

10 and 11th May, 1701. The 10th of May, last, state of 
I with Coll. Randolph, Capt. Epes, Capt. Webb, &c., French 
went up to the new settlements of ye ffrench "^^^^^^^ 
Refugees at ye Manakin Town. Wee visited about 
seventy of their hutts, being, most of them, very 
mean ; there being upwards of fourty of y'm betwixt 
ye two Creeks, w'eh is about four miles along on 
ye River, and have cleared all ye old Manacan 
ffields for near three miles together, as also some 
others (who came thither last ffeb'ry, as Blaekman 


Chapjr. ^q2^ ^g>^ have cleared new grounds toward the Lower 
1701. Creeke, and done more worke than thev v't went 
thither first. They have, all of y'm, some Garden 
trade and have planted come, but few of y'm had 
broke up their ground or wed the same, whereupon 
I went for most of v'm and told y'm thev must not 
expect to enjoy ye land unless they would endeavor 
to improve it, and if they make no corne for their 
subsistance next yeare they could not expect any 
further releif from the Countv. Mon'r de Joux 
promised at their next meeting to acquaint them 
all w'th w't I said, and to endeavor to stirr y'm up 
to be diligent in weeding and securing their corne 
and wheat, of w'ch latter there are many small 
patches, but some is overrun w'th woods, and the 
horses (of w'ch they have severall, w'th some Cows) 
have spoiled more; most of y'm promise faire. 
Indeed, they are very poor, and I am not able to 
supply y'm w'th Corne (they being about 250 last 
month), having bought up all in these two counties, 
and not haveing recieved one month's provision 
from all ye other Countyes, there being some in the 
Isle of Wight, but cannot hire any to fetch it. 
There are about 20 families seated for 4 or 5 miles 
below the Lower Creeke and have cleared small 
plantations, but few of y'm had broke up their 
grounds. . . . Tho' these people are very poor, 
yet they seem very cheerful and are (as farr as wee 
could learne) very healthy, all they seem to desire 
is y't they might have Bread enough. Wee lodged 
there that night and returned the new Road I 
caused to be marked, which is extraordinary Levell 
and dry way and leads either to the ffalls or the 
mill, a very good well beaten path for carts.

Entry of In the Virginia Land Registry Office of 

Land, j^iclimond, Book No. 10, page 364, is found this 

record: "Bartholomew Dupee (Dupuy), 

March 11, 1717, 133 acres, on the south side of 


James Eiver, Begg. &c standing on the south chap. i . 
side of lower Monakin Creek — part of the 
Land surveyed for the French refugees.'' Lq 
about 1722, the Vestry Book assigns him 208 1722-31. 
acres. In their neAV home the progenitor and 
his family lived for many years, enjoying at 
least the free exercise of their religion, if not 
much of the comforts of life; and the family 
took an active part in church work and its 
services. This we learn from two reliable 
documents — The Original ''Vestry Book of 
the Parish," which has recently been trans- 
lated from the French, and published in the 
Virginia Magazine, and the ''Baptismal Reg- 
ister" of the church at Manakintown, pub- 
lished years ago by the Virginia Historical 
Society; from the latter we record quotations 
further on. From the first document we 
learn that Bartholomew Dupuy was elected a 
vestryman of the church at Manakintown, 
August 25, 1718, but for some reason did not 
take the oath of office till January 29, 1723/24. 
As such he served until March 30, 1725, when 
he was elected a church warden. On July 23, 
1726 he is again recorded as a vestryman and 
so on until April 23, 1731, when he offered his 
resignation, being about 79 years of age and it 
was accepted. He was an officer of the church 
and appears to have been for years very punc- 
tual to the meetings of the vestry. The 
Vestry Book contains also the following 
records: "February 2, 1725-8, Monsieur Bar- 
tehlemis Dupuy rented the glebe for a year for 
a barrel and one-half of wheat, payable at the 
next harvest." "July 24, 1729, I, Jacob 
Capon, acknowledge receipt from Mons. 
Barthelemy Dupuy of 8 bushels for the levy 
of the parish; further, I acknowledge receipt 


Chap. I. from Mons. Dupuy of 7 bushels and one-half 
for rent of the glebe." His name appears in 
the tax list from 1710 to 1738. In the Bap- 
tismal Register, the children of Bartholomew 
Dupuy are recorded many times as sponsors 
in the ordinance of Baptism, and of his 27 
grandchildren, no less than 21 are recorded as 
having been baptized in infancy and no doubt 
they were all baptized, but they were not 
recorded. This indicates the activity of them 
all in religious life. The last time the name 
of his wife appears in any document, known to 
the writer, is as a sponsor in the baptism, 
associated with her husband, of her grand- 
daughter, Marye Levilain, October 27, 1731. 
In the transfer of real estate of the old pro- 
genitor to his son Peter, in 1737, her name is 
not signed to the deed, and it may be safely 
concluded that she had passed away, and that 
after her death the father spent the remnant 
of his days, having disposed of his real estate, 
with his children, or some one of them. Hence 

Death, her presence at the death scene, portrayed in 
the "Story of a Huguenot ^s Sword," cannot 
be true, and no doubt Mr. Cooke confused it 
with what occurred later. The old progeni- 
tor died about April, 1743, as his will was pro- 

Sword. bated on May 17 of that year. His sword 
was long treasured as an heir-loom by his 
descendants from his grandson John Bar- 
tholomew. It was worn in the Revolution by 
Capt. James Dupuy, a great-grandson, of 
Nottoway Coimty, Va., who replaced the old 
worn out scabbard, by one which he picked 
up on the battle field of Gruilford, N. C. The 
Sword was apparently of the French rapier 
pattern, which began to be manufactured 
about 1650, and was used chiefly for thrust- 


ing. The blade was straight, about three feet c hap. i. 
in length, and triangular in shape throughout, 
somewhat like the modern bayonet; at the 
hilt it was very strong, but rapidly di- 
minished in thickness for about eight inches, 
when it became comparatively slender. This 
construction combined perfect poise with 
lightness, and great strength, and made the 
weapon very effective in the hands of a 
skilled swordsman. When Captain James 
Bupuy was on his death bed, relates Dr. 
Foote, he said to his grandson. Dr. John 
James Dupuy, son of Dr. William Jones 
Dupuy: ''Take my old sword there, make use 
of it in a good cause only; it has never been 
drawn in a bad one. Fight for your country 
and your faith; so God shall bless you.'^ In 
the civil war, during a raid of Federal troops 
near Petersburg, Va., the sword was lost at Loss of 
the burning of the residence of Mrs. Julian s^°^^- 
Ruf&n, in whose charge it had been left by its 
last owner. Dr. J. J. Dupuy (her son-in-law), 
of Prince George County, who served in the 
C. S. A., and was obliged to wear a sword of 
modern pattern. Whether the sword was 
burned in the house, or carried off by the 
Federal troops, is still questioned by descend- 
ants of that branch. Some hold strongly to 
the latter view, and believe it might yet be 
recovered, if advertised extensively through- 
out the North.

The following letter was written by Jolm c hap. n . 
Dupuy of Kentucky. He was born in King 
William Parish, Va., March 17, 1738, and was 
a son of John James Dupuy, and a Baptist 
minister. He moved to Kentucky in 1784. 
It is probably addressed to Dr. William Jones 
Dupuy, born 1792, a descendant of Peter 
Dupuy, who lived in Dinwiddle County, Va., 
as it was found among the papers of his 
brother, Joseph Dupuy, and a copy forwarded 
to the author by Judge James A. Dupuy, son 
of Joseph Dupuy. 

30th January 1814. 
Brother William: I received your friendly let- 1814. 
ter and the Minutes of Several Associations and better of 


thank you for them. I have taken notice of your john 
request to give you what information I could con- Dupuy. 
cerning the Emigration of the French refugees, 
which I shall take pleasure in doing and recording 
the noble deeds of my Ancestors who left their 
countrv, not fearing the wrath of the King "but 
endured as seeing Him who is invisible." 

My grandfather's name was Bartholomew Du- 
puy, he was born in France about the year 1650 
or 1653. At the age of 18 enlisted in the French 
army as a Common Soldier, served 14 years and 
in that time arose to the command of Lieutenant 
and was often sent out on recruiting business and 
had Captain's pay. He fought 14 battles in Flan- 
ders besides skirmishes and duels and the Lord 
preserved him through all. Their manner of fight- 
ing was as follows: — Once a year they fought a 
pitched battle in Flanders with 100,000 men on 
each side and fought three days successively. The 
first day the armies fired at each other the whole 
day and at night slept on the ground. The second 
and third days passed the same way until 11 o'clk 
a. m. of the third, when they laid down their guns, 


C hap. I I. drew their swords and ran to meet each other and 

Letter off aught hand to hand till the armies were so thinned 

^^^•J^'^'that one or the other of them gave way. You may 

know that the carnage was exceeding great. 

At the expiration of 14 years my grandfather left 
the army and went home to pass a retired life. He 
had money enough to settle himself comfortably, 
bought a vineyard for fifty pounds and married a 

In 1685 his most Christian Majesty, Louis XIV, 
revoked the Edict of Nantes which afforded tolera- 
tion to the Protestants. His Majesty would have 
no heretics in his dominions, all his subjects must 
be Christians and every person must be a Roman 
Catholic or die. Inquisitors were appointed to go 
from house to house, to enquire whether people 
would turn — if they refused they were immediately 
apprehended, and if they continued impenitent 
were forthwith put to death. The manner of the 
death of some of them was as follows : — A cask 
was armed with short nails driven through the 
staves, and the culprit or rather the victim was imt 
in the cask, headed, and rolled to and fro to punish 
him for his obstinacy, till they had tortured him 
sufflcientlv for his rebellion, when the cask wag 
rolled into the river and let go adrift. Another 
mode was this — they had pinchers to pluck out 
the finger nails and the toe-nails in order to make 
them say, "I will turn," and if the culprit contin- 
ued obstinate one of his arms were broken and a 
pail of coal water poured on it to increase the pain 
and after an hour the other arm was treated in like 
manner and then the legs. After a lapse of four 
hours a red hot iron was put to the breast which 
gave the finishing stroke. Sometimes they used 
the iron-boot to press the leg with screws to compel 
them to say, "I will turn," and sometimes they 
would pardon them and sometimes put them to 
death instantly, unless they should apostatize. 
Some were burned and some were drowned. Thus 


you see "The tender mercies of the wicked are Chap, i i. 

cruel." Letter of 

One day the Priest came to my grandfather's ^^• 
house with six men. He drew (his sword) and Dupuy. 
told them to stand off. The Priest told him that 1814. 
he must be taken and if need be he could get more 
men. My grandfather told him that he wanted only 
a little time to consider and take advice and then 
he would surrender himself. The Priest said that 
his request was reasonable and that he would 
grant it cheerfully, so they parted good friends. 
Immediately my grandfather went across the street 
to a tailor's shop and told the tailor to make a suit 
of men's clothes for his wife, to have them done in 
six hours and keep the secret. At midnight the 
clothes were done. She put them on and passed for 
his Servitor. They immediately started, my 
grandfather wearing his military dress and sword 
and passed for a captain of the army, he having 
often traveled the country in that garb on the re- 
cruiting service. They traveled either 14 or 18 
days before they got out of France, were stopped 
every day to give an account of themselves, for 
there were guards at every crossing place ; but they 
escaped by his saying that he was the King's offi- 
cer. He had many narrow escapes but at last got 
over the line and sat down and sang the praises of 
God in the 40th Psalm. 

Germany rejoiced to see their Protestant breth- 
ren who had escaped out of the jaws of the lion and 
mourned that so many were massacred. It fired 
the souls of the protestants; their ministers were 
burning and shining lights; the praises of the Re- 
deemer resounded through the land as it did in 
Virginia in the time of the great revival. Thou- 
sands escaped by one strategy or other and thou- 
sands were put to the most barbarous deaths. 

The refugees remained in Germany about 14 
years. By this time the King of England in order 
to strengthen his Kingdom, made encouraging pro- 
posals for them to repair to England. Numbers 


Chap. II . accepted and went. After they had been there two 
Letter of years the King of England issued a proclamation 
j^hn *^ ^^^ ^^^^ ^® would go to settle the new country 
Dupuy. called Virginia (after the Virgin Queen) that he 
1814. would pay their passage, give them as much land 
as they might want, find them provisions for one 
year and arms and ammunition to defend them- 
selves from the Indians, that they should enjoy 
what religion they pleased, take in w^hat minister 
they pleased and expel him when they pleased, that 
they should have a parish to themselves and not be 
under the control of the government in respect to 
their parochial affairs, which privilege they enjoy 
to this day. 

In the year 1700 great numbers of Huguenots 
landed in America, some on James River and some 
on the Rappahannock. They selected as their 
place of residence the Manikintown, an old deserted 
village of the Manikin Indians and settled on the 
banks of the river. Each settler took a small strip 
of land running from the river to the foot of the 
hill. As well as I recollect the settlement ex- 
tended about 4 miles along the river. There the 
Huguenots built a house for the worship of God, 
in the centre of the settlement, here they had wor- 
ship twice a day on the Sabbath, conducting the 
service after the manner of the Germans. Such 
sweet singing I have never heard since. They kept 
up worship in their families three times a day. 
They fixed the bounds of their parish and called it 
King William parish after the name of the King. 
There was no settlement nearer than Richmond- 
town, yet the Indians never hurt them. The Lord 
said "touch not my anointed and do my prophets 
no harm." 

There was no mill nearer than Falling Creek, 20 
miles distant and they had no horses but were 
obliged to carry their corn on their backs to the 
mill. When their children were grown up they had 
not land enough, they wrote to the King to request 
the grant of more land. He ordered ten thousand 


acres more to be laid off and joined to their parish chap. ii. 

Thus I have given you a narrative of what my 
father told me, to the best of my recollection. If 
anything in it will answer your purpose, I shall 
think myself well paid for my trouble. You must 
sort it as we do our frost-bitten corn. I have not 
corrected nor transcribed it. "The works of the 
Lord are great, sought out of all who take pleasure 
in them." Let children's children rehearse the 
great works of the Lord and the next age prolong 
His praise. 

I am, dear brother, yours, 

John Dupuy.

From tlie foregoing quotations many deduc- C hap. n . 
tions may be made. A few of them will be 

Peter Cliastain, John Chastain, and 
Stephen Chastain, whose names are quoted chas- 
from the *' General List of Families of the *^^°^' 
Parish/^ were near of kin. They are rec- 
orded in the Vestry Book as Church Wardens 
and vestrymen. The wife of Peter Chastain 
was Anne Sublett, who died in Manakintown, 
April 3, 1723. It was probably a son of his 
who married a daughter of Bartholomew 
Dupuy. The wife of John Chastain was 
named Marianne. The wife of Stephen 
Chastain, sen., was named Martha, who died 
in Manakintown, Va., December 24, 1725, 
aged about fifty-two or fifty-three years. 

Of the four registered Sublett families, 
Abraham, sen., was the father of the other sutietts. 
three. The Vestry Book registers them also 
as vestrymen. It was a descendant of Louis 
Sublett who married a descendant of Bar- 
tholomew Dupuy. 

Anthony Trabue was a church Warden and 
Vestryman in the Parish, as the old Vestry Trabue. 
Book shows, from December, 1707 to Septem- 
ber 30, 1723. His name no where appears 
later than last date. The name of his son, 
Anthony, appears in the official documents 
many years later. 

It was a son of Anthony Trabue who mar- 
ried Olympia Dupuy, granddaughter of 
Bartholomew Dupuy. 

John Le^ilain in the List of Families was 
the father of John, Jr. Both were vestrymen, Leviiain. 
and are also mentioned as sponsors in the 
Register of Baptisms. It was John, Jr. who 


C hap. II . married a daughter of Bartholomew Dupuy, 
and John James Dupuy also married his 
It appears from the Baptismal Register that 
Francis Francis Dupuy was in close fellowship with 
Dupuy. ^-j^g family of Bartholomew Dupuy, and may 
have been near of kin to him; but his is regis- 
tered as a different family, having a wife and 
daughter. The Register shows the following 
issue from him and his wife, Mary: a son, 
bom August 21, 1732, and a daughter, Judith, 
born October 8, 1734 (See Register nos. 15, 
20). His name is recorded in the Vestry 
Book, in the first ''List of Tithable persons,'* 
in the year 1710, and the last time it appears 
in such lists is in the year 1731. In the year 
1736, "The Widow Dupuy" is registered 
among the Tithable persons, and in the Bap- 
tismal Register, August 15th, of the same 
year a black, named Tobie, is recorded to his 
wife. This is pretty conclusive evidence that 
Francis Dupuy died between October 8, 1734, 
and August 15, 1736, for there is no other way 
to account for a "widow Dupuy." The 
author has been unable to find the least trace 
of any of his descendants except his two 
children, and he is under the impression that 
the family was delicate and that there is no 
living progeny; or if any they cannot be 

The General List of Families, it will be 

Sons of observed, assigns to Bartholomew Dupuy 

^omew"*^^'6e "garcons" and two "filles." This is 

Dupuy. the only authority worthy of serious notice, 

which assigns to the old progenitor three 

sons apparently. Mrs. Stovall's Pictorial 

Tree (1861) gives him three sons only, and 

makes the mistake of naming John Bartholo- 


mew as one of them, whom the will of the old C hap. i l 
progenitor proves to have been his grandson, sons of 
thereby confirming the tradition among the^^^g^^" 
descendants of John Bartholomew. Dr. Dupuy. 
Brock and others have followed in the wake 
of Mrs. Stovall, denying to the progenitor any 
daughters at all, until the author some years 
ago affirmed it, and in his letters to friends 
gave their names. It is well known that the 
oldest pictorial trees gave the progenitor only 
two children, Peter and John James and no 
daughters. As this volume will prove con- 
clusively that the General List is correct in 
assigning him two daughters, what about 
the assignment of three ^'garcons'"? Did the 
old progenitor really have three sons, and if 
so what were their names ? Because the List 
is correct in the number of his daughters, it 
does not follow that he had also three sons, for 
the French word "garcon'^ is of wider signi- 
fication than ''filles," and might include any 
males who made their homes in those families. 
One thing is very certain, if the progenitor 
had three sons, there is not a single Dupuy 
mentioned in any of the official documents of 
Kltig William Parish that can be designated 
as his third son. Every Dupuy in all the 
documents are clearly accounted for, and 
there is not one named, who could possibly 
have been the third son of the old progenitor. 
Mrs. Major, in her clear cut statements, every 
one of which are proven to be true, names 
only two sons, Peter and John James, and the 
Will of Bartholomew Dupuy confirms her 
statement. The author, therefore, is forced 
to one of three conclusions on the subject, viz: 
1st, That the third "garcon" was a male, but 
not a son, living with the family; 2d, That, if 


C hap. II . a son, lie died, and no mention of his name is 
to be found anywhere; or 3d, That the entry 
is an error. He is thoroughly convinced that 
Bartholomew Dupuy never had but the two 
sons, Peter and John James, to survive him, 
and he seriously doubts if he ever had a third 
As to the names of the two daughters of the 
Daugh- progenitor, and whom they married, any one 
BaV4oi- "^^o will read carefully the entries of the Bap- 
omew tismal Register, and observe the association 
Dupuy. q£ names at the baptism of the progenitor's 
grandchildren, and especially the fact that at 
only two of their baptisms, and on no other 
occasions throughout the whole register, do 
Bartholomew Dupuy and his wife appear as 
sponsors, except at the baptism of the first 
child respectively of Stephen Chastain and 
his wife Martha, and of John Levilain and 
his wife Philippa, must infer that those 
women must have been his daughters (See 
entries, Nos. 5, 13). It was in this way, that 
the author years ago arrived at the inference 
that Martha, who married Stephen Chastain, 
and Philippa, who married John Levilain, Jr., 
were the daughters of the old progenitor. 
Some years later, this inference was greatly 
strengthened by the reception of the state- 
ment of Mrs. Susanna Major, but the question 
was only recently put beyond the slightest 
doubt, when the author found the wills of 
Martha Chastain and of the old progenitor. 

It may be safely said therefore, that from 
the deductions made from the documents 
recorded, we are able to start the descendants 
of Bartholomew Dupuy off correctly, even to 
his grandchildren, whose names and dates of 
births in nearly every instance are recorded. 


And if those, who attempt to write genealogy, c hap. i i. 
would compile it from official documents and Daugh- 
well authenticated statements, instead ot-^^^^^J^^ 
from mere presumption, genealogies would be omew 
more accurate, and people would have more ^"P"y- 
confidence in them. 

The science of genealogy is founded on 
common-sense and facts, without which a 
genealogy is virtually worthless. 



Ancestry of Bartholomew Dupuy. 

Chap. III. The Pedigree of Bartholomew Dupuy which 

Ancestry follows is claimed by its author to have been 

th culled from French authorities. It was com- 

omew piled specially for this work, by Mr. Henry 

Dupuy. Dudley Teetor, M. A., genealogist, of New 


I. In 1033, the Emperor Conrad conquered, at 
the head of his army, the baronies of Aries and 
Bourgogne in France. 

Raphael DuPuy, in Latin, Podio, "grand Cham- 
bellan de I'empire," followed him. He was one of 
the Governors which that Emperor appointed over 
his new possessions. After which, the descend- 
ants of Raphael Dupuy became possessed of many 
estates in Languedoc and Dauphine. 

The Tomb of Raphael DuPuy was opened in 
1610 by order of M. Le Comte de la Roche, "Gou- 
veneur de Romans en Dauphine." The corpse was 
found extended upon a marble table; his spurs 
upon one side, his sword upon the other, and upon 
his head a helmet of lead containing the following 
inscription upon a copper plate: — "Raphael de 
Podio, General de la Cavalerie Romaine, et Grand 
Chambellan de I'Empire Romaine." 

It is said that the "House of Du Puy en Dau- 
phine" possesses a gold medal granted to this Ra- 
phael Du Puy, upon one side of which is written : — 
"Raphael de Podio, grand chambellan de FEmpire 
Romaine Sons I'Empereur, Auguste, Christ reg- 
nant en chair." Raphael was succeeded by his son : 

II. Husjues DuPuy 1st., Seigneur de Pereina, 
dApifer & de Rocheport. He went to the Crusades, 
with three of his children, and his wife Deurard de 
Poisseu, in 1096. He founded the Abbey dAigue- 
belle, Order of Saint Bernard, was one of the Gen- 
erals of "Godefroi de Bouillon," and for his bravery 


C hap. II I. was .panted the "Souverainete la ville d' Acres." 

AncestryAncient writers call him Hugues de Podio, "tres 

0^ excellent guerrier." He left four sons : — 1. Alle- 

omew*iTi^ii> (who follows) ; 2. Rodolp'he, to whom Gode- 

Dupuy. froi de Bouillon gave many "lands on the other side 

of the river of Jordan," and who was killed "au 

combat de la vallee de Ran"; 3. Romaine DuPuy, 

who died in the principalities which Godefroi had 

given him; 4. Raymond DuPuy, Second Rector, or 

Grandmaster of the order of St. John de Jerusalem. 

IIT. Alleman 1st. DuPuy, Chevalier, was a man 
of valour like his brothers, and was in battle on 
many occasions in 1115. He left two sons, Guil- 
laume, who founded the house of DuPuy en Berri, 

lY. Hugues DuPuy, 2nd., Chevalier, Seigneur de 
Pereins, Rochefort, Apifer and Montbrun. He 
went to the Crusades in 1140, with Ame III. Comte

The Importance of Family Records. 

Many do not jealously guard family 
Family TGcords. All ought to do It, for they are 
Registers jjjipQP^ant not Only in determining blood- 
^ Keit^^-elationsMp, family property, class privileges 
and national history, but also the origin of 
one who may become famous. We at once 
want to know who such an one is; what are 
his belongings; who are his ancestors.

was applied to for the pedigree of a young 
descendant, who had been elected to a pro- 
fessorship in a State University, and it was 
furnished. The idea is true, no man is a dis- 
tinct and separate individual. We are all 
products. We all belong to the past. Those 
who have been live over again in their 
children. Hence, in a man^s biography, his 
ancestors are always recorded. The author 
also received letters from some families, who 
are probably lineal descendants of Bartholo- 
mew Dupuy, but, having lost their pedigree, 
they could not be connected with him. So 
every one should endeavor to preserve a com- 
plete and accurate pedigree, which will be use- 
ful, and some day may become eloquent in 
lessons to his posterity. 

The author has strenuously aimed at accu- 
racy and completeness in compiling the 
genealogy, but has been too dependent on 


C hap. ii Lprecarioiis sources to attest for it, as a whole, 
more than reasonable correctness. 

The sources have been ancestrial trees, 
printed genealogies, which have been partly 
corrected, and mainly family registers fur- 
nished by living descendants. Had all tha 
descendants responded, to whom the author 
wrote, the result would have been more com- 
plete and satisfactory. More than a quarter 
of a century has been spent in gathering all 
the data. The descendants from Martha 
Dupuy are quoted mostly and rearranged from 
the "Virginia Historical Collection, vol. v., 
New Series." 

Starting with a name in the Index, the line- 
age may be traced, by following the head lines 
and reference pages, and by observing that 
from a certain ancestor, the children of suc- 
cessive families are enumerated by different 
numbers; thus, I, i, (i), 1, (1); while each 
generation is marked with a superior number 
from the old progenitor. 

A great diversity of spelling proper names 
will be observed.

at an English University, and a man of reputation, 
(Son of John and Dorothea (Mason) Rolfe, b. Oct. 
17, 15(32 ; m. Sept. 24, 1582, who had other children 
— Eustace (twin), Edward, and Henry, who was a

Company; Son of Eustace and Joanna (Jener) 
Rolfe, m. May 27, 1560, descendant of a family, resi- 
dent for centuries in the county of Norfolk, Eng- 
land), married in England, and sailed for Virginia 
in May, 1609. The ship in which he came over was 
wrecked on the Bermudas, and there a daughter 
was born named Bermuda. They reached Virginia 
in May, 1610, and Rolfe's wife had either died at 
the Bermudas or only lived a short while after 
reaching Virginia. About Apr. 1, 1614, he married 
secondly, in the old Burton church, Williamsburg, 
Va., a few miles from Jamestown, the princess, 
Pocahontas, born in 1595, daughter of Powhatan, 
the noblest and most powerful of the Indian Chiefs 
of North America; She had been lured aboard an 
English vessel, in April, 1612, and held as hostage 
for the return of several white persons and some 
stolen property, and had been baptized in the Pro- 
testant faith, April, 1613, in the Jamestown church, 
by the name of Rebecca, but her original name was 
Matoax, which the Indians carefully concealed from 
the English, and changed to Pocahontas, out of 
superstitious fear, lest the knowledge of her true 
name might bring her hurt. In 1616, Rolfe and 
Pocahontas went to England where their only child,

Dupuy. about to set sail for their return to Virginia, Poca- 
hontas died and was buried in the chancel of St. 
Mary's church, Gravesend, Mar. 21, 1617. Rolfe 
left his infant son at Plymouth under the care of 
Sir Lewis Stukeley, but afterwards he was trans- 
ferred to his uncle, Henry Rolfe, of London, with 
whom he remained until manhood. John Rolfe 
married thirdly, about 1620, Jane, daughter of 
Capt. William Pierce, of Virginia, and had a daugh- 
ter, Elizabeth, born 1620. At different times he 
was Secretary and Recorder General of the Colony 
and a member of the council, and is spoken of by 
all the early writers who mention him as an honest 
and worthy gentleman. He died in March 1622. 
His son, Thomas, after reaching manhood, under 
his uncle Henry in London, came to Virginia ; was 
permitted by the governor in 1641 to visit his 
Indian relatives, his aunt Cleopatre and Kinsman, 
Opechancanough ; was a lieutenant in 1646 ; and be- 
tween 1646-63 patented a number of tracts of land, 
and became a man of wealth. He married Miss 
Poytress (doubtless a daughter of Francis Poy- 
tress), and through him are the descendants of 
Pocahontas. Their only child, Jane Rolfe, married 
Col. Robert Boiling, of Kippax, Prince George; 
Their only child, Major John Boiling, married Miss 
Kennon ; They had one son and five daughters ; the

Chap. III. At that election, though ardently supported by a

of the county, he was defeated, under the influence 
of the plea that the ofiices of Virginia, since the 
foundation of the government, had been in the 
hands of the gentlemen of the "old regime," who 
had reaped the emoluments of office, and it was 
time for others to share therein. The ability, zeal, 
and fidelity, with which he discharged the duties of 
the office, during his long incumbency, were never 
called in que.stion. He possessed social qualities of

of Anthony and Magdalene (Flournoy, died, Hen-

France, escaped to Holland, 1687, and emigrated 
to England, thence to America, and settled in 
King William Parish, Va., in 1701, where he died, 
Jan., 1724, aged about fifty-six or seven years, leav- 
ing five children — Anthony, Jacob, John James, 
Judith and Magdalene. "Antoine (Anthony) Tra- 
bue, a native of Montauban, aged about 19, of good 
size, fine carriage, dark complexion — having a scar 
under his left eye, has always professed the Re- 
formed Religion, in which his parents raised him, 
and has never committed any offense that has come 
to our knowledge, other than what the violence of 
the late horrible persecutions justified, which per- 
secutions God has had the kindness to stop, and 
for which he has given us reparation. We com- 
mend him to the care of Divine Providence, and to 
a cordial reception from our Brethren. Done at 
Lausanne this 15th of September, A. D., 1687." 
( Signed by the church pastors of Montauban, Lau- 
signarque, Dauphiny, Lausanne, and Beam, and 
original sheepskin parchment forwarded to Mr. A. 
E. D. Trabue of Hannibal, Mo., by Mr. Macon Tra-

his escape from France is given in a "Memoran-

Daniel Trabue: "I understand that my grand-

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 on, they left their 
horses and cart, and made their escape to an Eng- 
lish ship, which took them on board, and they went 
to England, leaving their estates, native country, 
relatives, and everything, for the sake of Jesus who 
died for them." (Kichmond Standard, May 10-19, 
1879, by R. A. Brock, Esq., Sec. Va. Hist'l Society). 
Other family tradition states that he went first to 
Holland and thence to England. In the Virginia

Dupuy. V. Kev. John^Dupuy ; The old "Dupuy's Meeting 
House," a Baptist church, located in the Eastern 
part of Powhatan Co., Va., took its name from this 
man, who, during the time that its pastor. Rev. 
David Tinsley, was seized by the hand of persecu- 
tion and incarcerated in the Chesterfield prison, 
was so stirred up at the forlorn condition of the 
church that he began first as an exhorter, and af- 
terwards entered the ministry. A few years later, 
when Mr. Tinsley gave up the charge, the church 
chose John Dupuy for its pastor, whose ministra- 
tions were blessed with a revival, in which were 
large accessions to the membership. He moved to 
Kentucky, and became a member of Clear Creek 
church, Woodford Co., in 1784. In 1801, he moved 
to Oldham Co., Ky., and joined the church at Pat- 
ton's creek; Later, he settled in Shelbyville, Ky., 
but by request of the members of the Patton's 
creek church, he retained his membership therein 
until his death : Author of letter beginning p. 163 ;

He commanded the first company raised in Shelby 
Co., Ky., and rendered valuable service in Wayne's 
Expedition. Soon afterwards he was elected to the 
State Legislature, and in 1799 was a member of the 
constitutional convention, afterwards a member of 
the State Senate. In 1811, he was the first from 
Kentucky to join Harrison, serving as aide-de-camp, 
and fell in the front of battle, leading bravely the 
charge to victory. As Soldier, Citizen and public 
Servant, no man was more beloved, and no man's 
death was more lamented in Kentucky. Owen

Levilain. Eng., and the Progenitor of the Woodson family in 
the United States, and who, as a Surgeon, with his 
wife, whom he married in Dorsetshire, emigrated to 
America, in 1619, in the ship "George ;" In 1623, he 
was listed as Surgeon of the "Flour De Hundred" 
colony in Virginia; In 1644, he was killed in sight 
of his house by Indians, who had called him out 
apparently to see the sick; After killing him, they 
then attacked his home, which was defended by his 
wife and a shoemaker, named Ligon; The door of 
the house was securely bolted, and during the at- 
tack, his two little sons, John and Robert, were 
thrust into the potato hole under the floor for pro- 
tection, { hence they were afterwards known as the 
"Potato-hole" Woodsons) ; Mrs. Woodson burned a 
feather bed in the fire place to suffocate and prevent 
those who sought entrance down the chimney, and 
loaded the guns so Ligon could keep up rapid and 
constant firing; Nine Indians were killed, and the 
rest sneaked away, possibly wounded. The gun 
which did the most effectual work is still possessed 
by a Woodson of Prince Edward Co. Va.] . .Below

Pride of Ancestry Is Not Vanity. 

Each name in the Genealogy represents ac hap. i v. 
line of ancestors which stretches far back into 
the past, and of their numerous posterity it 
can be most truly affirmed that the noble 
characteristics of honesty, truth, virtue and 
piety have eminently predominated and 
adorned their lives. 

It is thought by some that pride of ancestry 
is the height of folly. But such persons gen- 
erally have no ancestors of whom they might 
be proud. Hence they are not revered. And 
when a man does not know who his grand- 
parents were, naturally enough he does not 
care what they were. But blood in man will 
tell as well as blood in horses. It is strange, 
that, when a man wishes to buy a horse, even 
a pig, or puppy, he will inquire into the breed- 
ing, yet, when a man and woman want to 
marry, the blood of the parties cuts no figure 
whatever. People are more careful now-a- 
days for the blood of the stock on their farms 
than they are for the blood in their homes. 
How strange! If high breeding, by the uner- 
ring laws of nature, will improve the blood of 
the lower animals, why should it not improve 
that of man also? The blood of the Hugue- 
nots will bear testimony on this subject. 

It is not foolish arrogance, therefore, to 
assert that the descendants of Bartholomew 
Dupuy have a pride of ancestry which is cher- 
ished, since it has come to them by the natural 


Chapjv.iaw of descent. They know not only whence 
What they have come, but also both who and what. 
Owes t? More noble blood never settled American soil 
^^^ than that which circulated through the veins 
no?s^" of the Huguenots, whose sterling worth helped 
to lay the firm corner stones of the great re- 
public and to establish the grand institutions 
of the land. Their influence in moulding the 
character of the American people has been out 
of all porportion to the extent of their immi- 
gration. The prominence of Huguenot names 
in the rolls of patriots, statesmen, lawyers, 
philanthropists, ministers of the Gospel, phy- 
sicians, editors, educators — men of note in 
every calling in the United States — is too no- 
ticeable and significant to allow the statement 
to be questioned. Moulded, as the Huguenots 
were, in the furnace of persecution, they taught 
their offspring to endure hardness, to develop 
the mental powers, and to build character on 
industry, truth, honesty, virtue and religious 
belief, from which they were not to swerve. 
These piinciples have clung to their descend- 
ants, in their dispersion over the country, and 
may be easily recognized in the living genera- 
tions from Bartholomew Dupuy. The land 
allotted to the Huguenots in King William's 
Dis- Parish held his descendants only so long as it 
^^^of°° i^et the requii'ements of their life. As their 
Descend- children and grand children grew up, other 
^°*^* and distant parts of the country enticed their 
industry, and they went forth to replenish the 
earth. They first settled homes in the coun- 
ties of Chestifield, Dinwiddle, Nottoway, 
Amelia, Goochland, Cumberland, Bucking- 
ham, Prince Edward, Charlotte, Pittsylvania, 
Franklin, Bedford, and Amherst; and near the 


close of the 18tli century, they began to lannchCh.^Piiv. 
out to distant states, until now these descend- 
ants are dispersed throughout all the states, 
South and West, and many of them away up 
North. This is actual information gathered 
in compiling the genealogy. And it may be 
safely estimated that thousands of the old pro- 
genitor's descendants are not recorded in the 
genealogy. Many of them have actually lost 
their pedigree, and only know by tradition 
that they descended from him, while the ad- 
dresses of others who have preserved it were 
unknown to the author, or who take no inter- 
est in the subject. 

Those who were pioneers of the new country 
to which they emigrated endured great hard- 
ships in felling forests, building themselves 
homes, and accumulating estates ; and some of 
them passed through thrilling scenes with the 
Indians, which would fill an interesting vol- 
ume of fascinating adventures, and undaring 
bravery, if they were collated and published. 

None of the descendants have accumulated 
immense fortunes. They seem to have been 
content with a state of sufficiency, and to have 
been governed in their dealings with their 
fellow men by the spirit to live and to let live. 
The writer has never learned of a single lineal 
descendant, who by his own efforts became a 
millionaire. This is remarkable, when we 
think of their thousands and the opportuni- 
ties afforded to amass fortunes, while others 
around them did it. Doubtless it must be 
accounted for on the ground that they had not 
inherited a grasping spirit, but rather prin- 
ciples which forbade the love of money. 


C hap. I V. In every war, in which the United States 
has been engaged, these descendants have 
taken an active part. Their inheritance of 
valour from their old progenitor, and the re- 
membrance of his patriotism and bravery, 
have always revived whenever the tocsin of 
war has been sounded, and they have ever 
been found in the forefront and thickest of 

Reyoiu- battles. In the war of the Revolution, as far 
^^^^' as information can now be gathered almost 
every one who was eligible to arms, shoul- 
dered his musket and fought to liberate his 
country from British rule. The preservation 
of relics, cherished as heir-looms of that war, 
still found among the living descendants, tes- 
tifies of their patriotism and love to their 

Wars of country. In the war of 1812, many of them 

1846. i^esponded to the call for troops, and went far 

north to defend that border land; and in the 

Mexican War they went to the far South to 

Civil defend that border. In the great Civil War 


^^' it certainly would be hard to find in the East, 
the name of a descendant, who was eligible 
at all to arms, who had not enlisted and taken 
an active part, until killed in battle, or the 
cause was lost to the South. Many of them 
enlisted while under age, and fought to the 
end, yielding at last with hearts of bitterness 
to the inevitable. As the overwhelming ma- 
jority of them resided in the South, they cast 
their lot with the Confederacy, and in losing 
their cause, many of them lost all of their 
available property, and in an impoverished 
condition had to begin life or business from 
the start. Then it was that those principles 
which had sustained the Huguenots in their 
severe ordeals revived to rescue them from 


their impoverished condition; and by energyc hap. iv . 
and frugal industry they soon found them- 
selves on rising ground again. Some of the 
descendants who lived in the West were on the 
Federal side. In these wars many of them 
held honorable positions, as ofi&cers in the 
ranks, on the staffs of Generals, and a few of 
them became generals of forces. 

In the late Spanish- American War, a liberal Spanish- 
number of the younger descendants volun-^"^,"^*" 
teered, and remained in the U. S. A., until 
they were honorably discharged with their 
commands; some of them reached Cuba and 
the Philippine Islands, and were engaged in 

Like the Huguenots of France, the descend- 
ants of Bartholomew Dupuy have been com- sodai 
posed mostly of the better classes of society .^*^°'^''^2- 
Wherever they have gone, they have main- 
tained the respect and esteem of the commun- 
ity in which they lived, and have moved in the 
upper grade of society. Great changes take 
place in a people in one century, but in the 
case of these descendants, more than three 
centuries have not availed to change the high 
and noble character, which from the first 
marked their ancestors. The explanation 
may be found both in their family govern- 
ment and in the principles which they have 

Education has been one of their chief char- Educa- 
acteristics. In many successive generations, tion. 
on different lines of descent, the men have 
been College bred, and the women have been 
educated at the best female schools of their 
day. All professions and avocations of life, — 
law, medicine, preaching, professorships and 


C hap, iv .presidencies of Colleges, editing of secular and 
religious papers, and the writing of books of 
diversified literature, — have been followed. 
The two which certainly have predominated 

Medicine are medicine and law. In these two profes- 
Law. sions, there have been some able men in many 
lines of descent, and they have commanded 
large and lucrative practice in large cities, 
standing in the front of their professions. 
Others have graced legislative and senatorial 
halls, and still others have presided with dig- 
nity and ability on county, mimicipal, district, 
and State benches of Justice. All lines of 
Lines busiuess — banking, merchandise, manufac- 

Business.tnres, mechanics, commerce, farming, teach- 
ing, offices of county and state — have been 
followed and made a success by many of these 

Beginning with the grand children of Bar- 

Ministry.tholomew Dupuy, we have the Ministry of the 
Gospel represented, and every generation 
since has been adorned with that profession, 
in the various denominations. In the South- 
ern Presbyterian Church there are now six 
living ministers through the descent of Peter, 
and others in the Northern Church; while 
facts indicate that the Ministry in the Baptist 
and Christian denominations is far better rep- 
resented in the line of descent through John 
James. Martha and Philippa, the daughters, 
have also furnished their quota. 

The marked degree in which Protestantism 

Religion, has characterized these descendants is also 
worthy of note. After the lapse of 200 years, 
the writer, in his wide correspondence to 
gather data for the genealogy, has never 
learned of a single descendant who had been, 
or is a Roman Catholic : while all the different 


Protestant denominations are most generallyc hap. iv . 
represented. In the pioneer days of the coun- 
try wherever they settled, they became active 
in building and maintaining churches, and 
wherever they now reside they are a church 
going and church supporting people. Among 
the descendants from Peter and Philippa the 
Presbyterian denomination seems to have Denomi- 
largely predominated. Among those from °^*^°°f 
John James, the Baptist and Christian denom- sented. 
inations lead in the order named. The church 
relations of the descendants from Martha is 
not so well known, but many of them were, 
and are Presbyterians. It may be safely 
affirmed that the great majority of the de- 
scendants have been, and are still Calvinists. 

These facts may be gathered from the brief 
sketches given in the genealogy. It is not in 
the province of a volume like this to enter into 
particulars, or to enlarge upon them. Suffice 
it to say, that it is very evident that what 
France lost, this country has greatly profited, 
in the immigration to it of the one Huguenot, 
Bartholomew Dupuy. Mortal mind cannot 
estimate the quiet influence for good, which 
has emanated from him and dispersed to all 
parts of the land. What a harvest it will 
make in the great gathering day! 

These facts are an heritage to the living 
descendants. History loves to trace the line- 
age of those whose lives have been heroic, 
honorable, industrious, virtuous and religious. 
And when such character descends from sire 
to son, 

"And is successively, from blood to blood, 
The right of birth," 
the pride which it begets is shorn of its 
offence, and the bequeathed legacy becomes to 


C hap. IV . the succeeding heirs a spur and stimulus to 
preserve and perpetuate untarnished their 
noble inheritance. If the blood which coursed 
through the veins of a long line of descendants 
has borne upon its tide the virtues which first 
distinguished it, and the scions of an ancestor 
give presage of characteristics which made 
him honorable, mankind, which distinguishes 
with sagacity between a counterfeit and true 
aristocracy, will bow with deference to those 
traits which seal the legitimacy of their sway. 
The longest pedigree must have a beginning, 
and if there be any glory attached to it, that 
glory must be yielded to its progenitor, who 
chalked out the way for his descendants. 
Sweet waters never flow from bitter foun- 
tains. It is the impress of progenitors which 
distinguishes their offspring and helps to 
make them what they are. The glory of a 
family does help a man through life. Men 
believe in association. A Standley is honor- 
able because he is a Standley. The Spartan 
boys were brave, not simply because their 
nerves were stronger than others, but because 
they were Spartans, and had an hereditary 
virtue descending upon them from their 

^A?to°^ family. The old theory, therefore, that men at 

gether a birth are like a sheet of white paper is not 
ThhT altogether true. They are like such a sheet 

at Birth. Written on with invisible ink, which the fire of 
circumstances makes visible, or develops a 
writing which they did not write. Who did 
write if? Their ancestors, running back 
through many generations. In other words, 
man comes into life as a seed which has in 
itself the effects of the foregoing conduct of a 
successive line of ancestors. He is not an 
original, new thing, the outcome of which is 


wholly determined by his own will. But thereC hap. iv . 
are elements born in him, which are not 
wholly casual, and which relate to foundation 
of character and go to determine moral prin- 
ciples. If it be true that face, countenance, 
and bodily form are features, every one of 
which can be traced back to some ancestor, in 
whole or in part, the same is true also of moral 
character. We are thus spelled out of the past 
existence of ancestors, on whose shoulders we 
stand. This being true, the descendants of 
Bartholomew Dupuy should cherish, guard 
and try to perpetuate that good and honorable 
name, which has been bequeathed them 
through a long line of descent. 

Their ancestors laid the foundations of char- 
acter upon which they now stand, and are 
esteemed. The honorable name, "Hugue- 
nots," was not won and earned by them, but 
was bequeathed them by their forefathers; 
and as heirs they have entered into possession 
of it, as sons of great warriors take possession 
of spoils won by the sword of their fathers. 
Should not the descendants cherish and guard 
that honorable name, as a pearl of great 
price ? How easy it is to injure it by sloth and 
sin, by intemperance and lust, by uncontrolled 
passions and neglect of mental and moral 
development! It takes years to build up an 
honorable name, and when it is inherited, 
boasted of, and yet not duly appreciated and 
guarded, it is often lost by one rash and 
ignoble act. 

"Boast not these titles of your ancestors, 
Brave youths; they're their possessions, none 

of yours. 
When your own virtues, equal' d have their 



C hap. IV . 'Twill be but fair to lean upon their fames ; 

For they are strong supporters ; but till then 

The greatest are but growing gentlemen ; 

It is a wretched thing to trust to reeds, 

Which all men do, that urge not their own deed^s 

Up to their ancestors; the river's side, 

By which you're planted, shows your fruit shall 

Hang all your rooms with one large pedigree ; 
'Tis virtue alone is true nobilitv; 
Which virtue from your father, ripe, will fall ; 
Study illustrious him, and you have all." 

There is also the heritage of religion, which 
the descendants should cherish and endeavor 
to perpetuate. The heroic endeavours of the 
ancestors to maintain their religion, and the 
cruel persecutions which they endured there- 
for should be whispered frora sire to son until 
their very sufferings are hallowed. Two 
centuries have carried their ancestors away, 
Example but whatever of religious life they cherished, 
Followed. the same is the descendants^ by inheritance. 
Were the ancestors given to repentance of sin? 
Let it awaken the descendants. Did the an- 
cestors bear tistimony to the grace which is in 
Christ alone % Let it convert the descendants. 
Did the ancestors set forth an example of 
love ? Let it mellow the descendants. Did the 
ancestors fight the good fight of faith? Let it 
animate the descendants in their conflict with 
sin. Did the ancestors persevere with pa- 
tience % Let it enthuse the descendants. Was 
the hope of the ancestors unquenchable? Let 
it enliven the descendants. All the gifts and 
all the services of the ancestors have been 
bestowed for the benefit of the descendants, 
and are at their disposal. They are theirs as 
a part of the inheritance, which they are called 


freely to enjoy. Their fathers before themc hap. iv . 
had a God, whom they loved, worshiped, and 
served before they were born. Shall they 
break the record and become renegades to the 
long line of faith ^s march*? Who of the de- 
scendants can be content to break the glorious 
chain, and sever the great procession of reli- 
gious life, which for more than two hundred 
years has marched down the track of time in 
a pious ancestry? These ancestors have veri- 
fied the word of God; ''One generation shall 
praise his works to another. " How beautiful I 
Shall therefore the voice of the living descen- 
ants be silent, their thought idle, and their 
heart cold and dead to the God of their 
fathers'? No. They will be influenced by the 
unfeigned faith of their ancestors, and not mar 
their good name by unbelief. We urge this as 
a special duty on the younger descendants, 
that they may not only experience the joy and 
freedom, which such a hallowed faith begets, 
but may also know what a noble heritage they 
have in their ancestry, who suffered exile 
before they would bow the knee to Rome. We 
do not wish our young kindred to become 
bigots, or to hate the Catholic Church. But 
we would have them know how much their 
ancestors had a right to their love and reli- 
gious faith, and we would have them love the 
religion of their fathers the best because it is 
their own. Protestantism is their mother 
church, and they should love it best as they 
love their own mother. They should be true to 
its religion, as long as it is true to Christ, and 
give to it the unwasted strength of their 
youth. They should endeavor to add some 
new leaves to the unfading chaplet of their an- 
cestor's religion which has marked the many 


Ch ap. IV . generations adown the track of time, that 
"The Lord shall count, when he writeth up 
the people, that this man was born there": 

"He that to ancient wreaths can bring no more 
From his own worth, dies bankrupt on the score." 

And they should also prepare their offspring 
for their legacy. The heir of a nobleman must 
be educated so as to be fitted for his position. 
The heir of a throne needs special training in 
order that he may enter upon the duties as 
well as the privileges of royalty. It would be 
useless to bequeath a library to a man who had 
no interest in literature, or to leave an art 
collection to a man of boorish tastes. The heir 
must be suited to the inheritance. We hear 
much of the acquisition of an honorable name 
and blessed religion, and some seem to act as 
though all they had to do is to talk about it. 
But what of the minors who are yet to inherit 
it? If they are not prepared to heir it, will 
they not likely mar it? And is it not true, 
that a pound of posterity is worth a ton of 
ancestry? The potent duty then of every 
descendant is not to vaunt his inheritance, but 
to prepare his offspring to honor it, b,y a life 
of moral worth and religious faith, that, as one 
generation passeth away and another cometh 
there may be no break in that line of life which 
has made Huguenot descent honorable and 
pious. The home of every lineal descendant 
should be a center, in which the conserving 
forces of truth and godliness are themselves 
conserved. A child's religious faith is, in a 
high and holy sense, to be chosen for him by 
anticipation, by those who were in Christ 
before him. Naturallv, a child's life is an in- 
quiring life. He will neither wildly tear up 


and obliterate ''the old paths, '^ nor will hec hap. iv . 
walk in them heedlessly and without inquiry. 
And what can be more charming than the hon- 
est, eager inquisitiveness of the young for 
reasons which governed the faith and life of 
his ancestors'? And specially delightful is 
such inquiry, when parents are able to return 
a good answer, and from their hearts will let 
flow, as rivers of living waters, those truths 
which made the Huguenots a religious people, 
until the heart of the offspring becomes satu- 
rated with them. We urge this as the potent 
duty of every descendant who has children. It 
is God's way of perpetuating religion. With- 
out it, religion would die out; with it a holy 
seed will be preserved in times of greatest 
declension, and to remotest posterity. Child- 
ren will ever be what parents make them, and 
the world will ever be what the family is. 

To nobly live is grand to live, 

To leave our deeds behind, 
That they, who shall become our heirs, 

Rich heritage may find. 

Parents to heirs will e'er convey 

The impress of their lives ; 
Live as they will, do as they may, 

They are their children's dies. 

The earthly life is in the blood. 

Inherited from man ; 
'Tis God of souls, who lifts the soul. 
And makes our living grand. 

God of our fathers, be the God 

Of our succeeding heirs ; 
Lift up their souls, keep pure their blood, 

And evermore be theirs.

As far as known, his great grand-father, 
Joseph Dupuy, Jr., lived in Christian Co., Ky., 
about 1806-15, as shown from official records 
in that Clerk ^s Office. In the year 1812, a 
patent of Illinois land was issued him, and 
about that time he moved to that state where 
most of his children married. Whence he 
came to Kentucky, and of what progenitor of 
Dupuys is unknown at present.

Ancestry of Mr. J. D. Dupuy, of San Antonio,Tex. 

In a letter addressed to the author, Mr. J. D. 
Dupuy says: ''As I understand, this is the 
branch of the family (Bartholomew Dupuy 's) 
to which five sisters, and five brothers, all 
now living and myself belong. I hand you 
herewith a copy of a memorandum made by 
one of my sisters while in conversation with 
our old father a short while before his death. 
This will enable you to determine whether or 
not we are of the old stock in which you are 
interested: — Our great grand father DuPuy 


was born and raised in Bordou, France; 
married there and shortly afterwards came to 
Virginia, near Richmond, and there reared his 
family, which consisted of two girls and four 
boys, named respectively, William, James, 
Joseph and David; the girls, Elizabeth and 
Deborah. Our grand-father, David DuPuy 
was born in Virginia, July 8, 1776, and went to 
Kentdcky at an early date, and married Miss 
Ellen Ross, daughter of Capt. Wm. Ross, 
whose mother was a Miss Elizabeth Hughes. 
Our grand-father lived in Christian Co., Ky. 
Raised six boys and two girls, named respec- 
tively, Alfred, David, William, Cicno, All3ert 
(my father) and Joseph, — girls, Elizabeth and 

The similarity of names would indicate that 
these two families are descendants of Barthol- 
omew Dupuy, and there are a few early 
branches from him, which if sufficiently devel- 
oped might show where they come in, but more 
accurate and full information will have to be 
presented before they can be connected. It is 
possible also that they are descended from 
other of the four Dupuy progenitors (p 91), 
who immigrated to America. There is no rea- 
son why persistant search should not perfect 
each line of descent.
