Most American Pounceys seem to have roots in the 17th and 18th centuries (going by the postings in this Forum). Most (if not all) emigrants to America in thqt period, were Protestant refugees from Britain and Europe. The Huguenots were Calvinists, regarded as "enemies of the state" by the Catholic "Ancien Regime" in France.
(I do know that many Americans are descendants of Catholics so no offence is intended by my comments. In fact some of my own ancestors are Irish Catholics)
