I have a Madelaine Parcot who married John H Badeau the son of Eli Badeau, a Huguenot from France.
I think that Pierre Parcot and Francoise Jandron or Gendron were her parents.
Pierre was born in Marrenes, Saintogne, France about 1665. His father, another Pierre, was a Huguenot and they had to flee from France to England with some other families, among them the Jandron or Gendron family.
By 1671 they were living in London where Pierre the father was known as an “Ancien of the Temple” in Soho which means they had joined the Reformed French Church which was in Threadneedle Street at that time.
The younger Pierre married Francoise Jandron and they came to New York and lived in New Rochelle. They are listed in the Census of Sept 1698 "List of the Inhabitants of New Rochelle"
In the 1710 Census they are listed as Peter Parcot 45, Francoise Gendron his wife 37.
Their children were mentioned in Pierre's will dated 30 May 1730: Anna Maria wife of Pierre Bonnet, Magdalina wife of Jean Badeau, Jeanne and Hester, and a son Jean, and grandsons Pierre Perott and Pierre Badeau.
I'm not sure when the other children were born but the youngest "Hester" (Ester) was baptised in the Reformed French Church in New York 1 April 1711.
Pierre left a house and 64 acres in New Rochelle to his wife. The Parcot farm was near the Badeau farm and the area is now Highland Park, NY.
Parcot is one of the 151 family names on the Huguenot monument in Hudson Park in New Rochelle, NY erected to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the founding of New Rochelle. The plaque was placed later in 1935.
Does anyone have any more info on this Parcot family ?
