Your information might be a breakthrough in the genealogy of the Charles Perrault family of Virginia if only we can find proof that this Charles Perrault was identical with Charles Perrault de Sailly, with the one who had a son named Isaac by his first marriage, and with the one whose parents were Philibert Perrault and Elisabeth Gravier. I have googled these names and come across several Google Books sites on old French noble families that are unfortunately written in French. One makes reference to Philibert's son Charles settling in Angleterre (England) following the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, but unless there is something I have overlooked in all the French words, I didn't see any reference to him specifically settling in Virginia. I have purchased the book "The Huguenot Soldiers of William of Orange" which suggests that Charles Perrault de Sailly is believed to have settled at Manakintowne, but offers no proof and merely shows a couple of footnotes on where this information may be found. Had you come across primary source documentation establishing the background of Charles Perrault prior to his immigration to Virginia? If so, several of us are curious about proving our lineage back in France, and I'm also curious as to whether you descend from the Perrow family as I'm trying to trace as many descendants as I can.
