Notes

[17] Abbadie: James Abbadie, D.D., was a native of Nay, in Bearn; born in 1654, and died in London in 1727; was Dean of Killaloe in Ireland.

[18] Barré: A Protestant family of Pont-Gibau, near Rochelle, several members of which settled in Ireland. Peter Barré m. Miss Raboteau, also a refugee; he was an Alderman of Dublin, and carried on a large business as a linen-draper. His son Isaac was Adjutant-General of the British Forces, under Wolfe, at Quebec. In 1776 Colonel Barré was made Vice-Treasurer of Ireland and Privy Councillor; he died in 1802.

[19] Bayley: This Huguenot name is derived from Philippe de Bailleux, a French refugee, who settled in the neighbourhood of Thorney Abbey, circa 1656. Since then the name has assumed the following forms: Balieu, Balieul, Bayly, Bailly, and Bayley.

[20] Belcastel: Pierre Belcastel de Montvaillant was a refugee officer from Languedoc, who entered the service of William of Orange. After the death of La Caillemotte at the Boyne, he was made Colonel of the regiment; he took a prominent part in the Irish campaigns of 1690 and 1691.

[21] Beranger: A branch of the Huguenot family of this name settled in Ireland, and another in Holland, but both dwindled in numbers until, in 1750, they became reduced to two—one the only surviving son of the Dutch refugee, and the other the only surviving daughter of the Irish refugee. The Dutchman, Gabriel Beranger, then came over to Dublin and married his Irish cousin; but, she dying without issue, the widower next married a Miss Stayer, also of French descent. Beranger was employed by an Antiquarian Society, in Dublin, under Burton, Conyngham, and Vallancy, to travel through Ireland, in company with the celebrated Italian architect, Signor Bigari, and describe and draw the various antiquities of Ireland. He died in St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin, in 1817, and was interred in the French burying-ground there.

[22] Blaquiere: John de Blaquiére took refuge in England in 1685. He m. Mary Elizabeth de Varennes, the daughter of a refugee, by whom he had issue. One of his sons settled at Lisburn, where his sister m. John Crommelin, son of Louis. The fifth son John held various public offices; he was made a Baronet in 1784, and in 1800 raised to the Peerage as Lord de Blaquiére, of Ardkill, in Ireland.

[23] Boileau: Charles, son of Jacques Boileau (fifth Baron, counsellor of Nismes, born in 1657), served in the English Army as captain of infantry; afterwards settled as a wine merchant in Dublin, where he died. His son Simeon, was succeeded by Solomon Boileau, who had sons, from the eldest of whom who was named Simeon Peter, was descended Major-General Boileau; and from the fifth son John Peter was descended Sir John Boileau, Bart.

[24] Bouherau: Elias Bouherau, M.D., D.D., settled in Dublin, where he was appointed librarian to Marsh’s (now known as St. Patrick’s) Library. One of his sons, John, entered into Holy Orders, and another became “Town-Major” of Dublin: This Town-Major, Bouherau, changed his name to Borough; from him the late Sir Edward Borough, Bart., of Coolock, County Dublin, was descended.

[25] Brocas: The Very Rev. Theophilus Brocas, D.D., was a scion of this family, which held numerous lordships in the South of France, mostly in the neighbourhood of Bordeaux. He escaped from France at the Revocation, and having taken Holy Orders, was appointed by the Crown to the Deanery of Killala, and the Vicarage of St. Anne’s, Dublin. For his valuable services in promoting the arts and manufactures of Ireland, he was presented with the freedom of the city of Dublin; he died in 1766, and was interred in St. Anne’s Churchyard, Dublin. His only son and heir was the Rev. John Brocas, D.D., Dean of St. Anne’s, Rector of Monkstown, and Chaplain of the military chapel at Irishtown, Ringsend. He died in 1806, and left issue, the Rev. Theophilus Brocas, rector of Strabane, in the diocese of Derry; and an only sister Georgina, who, in 1804, married Robert Lindesay, Esq., captain of the Louth Militia. The Rev. Theophilus Brocas dying without issue, this family became extinct in the male line, but survives in the female line, in the Lindesay family of Glenview, county Wicklow.

[26] Burges: A member of this family, Válery, or Valerièn de Burgeois, came to England with one of the earliest bodies of immigrants, and settled at Canterbury; and births, deaths, and marriages of members of the family appear in the registers of the Huguenot church there, from the year 1592 downwards. In the middle of the last century, the name, from successive intermarriages, became almost unrecognisable as of Huguenot origin, and was then changed to Burgess; but the pedigree of the family has since then been clearly traced back to the Burgeois family of Picardy, who were seigneurs of Gamache and d’Oye, and of de la Fossé.

[27] Cambon: A refugee French officer, who commanded one of the Huguenot regiments raised in London in 1689, fought at the Boyne and at Athlone, and died in 1693.

[28] Carle: Peter Carle, a native of Valleraugue in the Cevennes: born in 1666, and died in London in 1730. He entered the Corps of Engineers in the army of William III., and fought at the Boyne; afterwards accompanying the army through all its campaigns in the Low Countries. He devoted his after-life to the improvement of agriculture, on which subject he wrote and published many useful works.

[29] Champagné: Robillard de Champagné, a noble family in Saintonge, several of whom took refuge in England and Ireland. The children of Josias de Robillard, chevalier of Champagné, under charge of their mother, escaped from La Rochelle, concealed in empty wine casks, and arrived safe at Plymouth, England. Their father went into Holland and took service with the Prince of Orange; on his way to join his regiment, he died at Belfast Madame de Champagné settled at Portarlington with her family. One of Chamnagné’s sons, Josias, was an ensign in La Melonniere’s regiment of French infantry, and fought at the Boyne; he afterwards became Major in the 14th Foot.

[30] Chenevix: A distinguished Lorraine family, which became dispersed at the Revocation. The Rev. Philip Chenevix fled into England, and the family afterwards settled in Ireland. Philip’s son entered the King’s Guards, of which he became Colonel; and his grandson became Bishop of Killaloe in 1745, and afterwards of Waterford and Lismore. The late Protestant Archbishop of Dublin, Richard Chenevix Trench, was his great-grandson by the mother’s side.—See La Tranche, p. 458, ante.

[31] Dargent: A refugee family from Sancerre, some members of which settled in England and Ireland at the Revocation. Two of them served as officers in the Guards of William III. The name has been changed to Dargan.

[32] De la Cherois: Descendants of this Huguenot family still survive in the North of Ireland.

[33] De Laval: Vicomte de Laval possessed estates in Picardy, but at the Revocation took refuge in Ireland, settling at Portarlington. Descendants of the family are still to be met with in Ireland.

[34] De Lavalade: Several members of this family settled in Lisburn, in the North of Ireland.

[35] Des Vœux: Vinchon des Vœux, second son of De Bacquencourt, took refuge in

Dublin, where he became minister of the French church. In conjunction with the Rev. Peter Droz, he commenced about 1742 the publication of the first literary journal which appeared in Ireland. He afterwards removed to Portarlington.

[36] D’Olier: Bertrand Olier was “capitoul” of Toulouse as early as 1364. Edward Olier was made Marquis of Nointel in 1656; his third son eventually settled in Dublin (with the freedom of which he was presented in 1697), and assumed the name D’Olier: it was after his grandson, Jeremiah, that “D’Olier” street was so named.

[37] Drelincourt: Peter, son of Charles Drelincourt, came to England, where he entered the English Church, and eventually became Dean of Armagh.

[38] Du Bédat: The head of this family was the Marquis Du Bedat; some of whose descendants are now living in Ireland.

[39] Dubourdieu: A noble family of Bearn. Isaac Dubourdieu was for some time minister of the Savoy Church, London. His grandson was the last pastor of the French Church at Lisburn; he was afterwards rector of Annahilt, in Ireland.

[40] Dury: Paul Dury was an eminent officer of engineers, who entered the service of William III., and afterwards passed into the service of the Elector of Hesse. Two of his sons served in the English army: the elder of whom, who belonged to the regiment of La Melloniére, was killed at the Boyne.

[41] Gaussen: There were several branches of the family in France. David Gaussen, who took refuge in Ireland in 1685, belonged to Lunel in Languedoc; descendants of his are still living at Antrim, Belfast, and Dublin. The Gaussens who settled in England were also from Languedoc.

[42] Geneste: Louis Geneste took service under the Prince of Orange, and fought at the Battle of the Boyne, in the regiment of Lord Lifford. After the pacification of Ireland, Geneste settled at Lisburn, and left behind him two sons and a daughter.

[43] Gosset: A Huguenot family, originally from Normandy, which first settled in Jersey, whence some of the younger branches passed over into England. Among the members of the elder branch of the family was Matthew, for many years Vicomte of Jersey, who died in 1842; Major-General Sir William Gosset, who held the office of Under-Secretary of State for Ireland, was some time M.P. for Truro, and for several years Sergeant-at-arms to the English House of Commons, and who died in 1848.

[44] Gually: Peter Gualy, son of the Sieur de la Gineste, of Rourgue, fled into England at the Revocation, with his wife, and three children—Paul, Francis, and Margaret. Paul entered the English army; and Francis also entered the army, and eventually settled at Dublin, where some of his descendants survive.

[45] Guillot: Several members of this family emigrated to Holland at the Revocation, and received from the Prince of Orange commissions in his Navy. Their descendants settled in Lisburn, in Ireland.

[46] Guyon: William de Guyon de Geis, son of the Sieur de Pampelona, fled into Holland at the Revocation; and took service under William of Orange, in which he lost an arm. William III. gave him a retiring pension, when Guyon settled at Portarlington, and there died in 1740.
