Huguenot Family Genealogy Forum
Thank you!! You are correct about the 3 Philemon's --as you can see from the "corrections" I was posting these very late at night!! The Farrow-Waters Gen. pub. in 1970's was close at hand & I used it when writing the post and the book refers to Philemon I mar. Sarah Bordroyne & Philemon II mar. Mary Berry, which you have corrected as they should be: Philemon II & III.
I'm glad to know the French source of Bordroyne. I checked the Manakin Town (VA) Huguenot website and they said a 4th ship was headed for Stafford Co., VA, but that the name of the ship and the passenger list was lost in a fire. It also quoted Col. George Mason who said that the French had been ill with the "Flux" and most had gone to MD. He also reported the death of Col. William Fitzhugh and said he was a great friend to the French. From memory -- I think Fitzhugh d. circa 1700. I know that Fitzhugh had planned to sponsor a group of Huguenots -- so they did go Stafford but did not flourish and records are gone. Do you think the Waters could also be Huguenot? I have seen charts with Waters mar. to a Ludwell -- is that also incorrect? Thanks for your thoroughness!! Patillo <email@example.com>
