"In 1685 more than 50,000 French Huguenot families begin emigrating following the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. Half a million people will leave for England, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, the Protestant German states, South Africa, and North America. Many countries will attract the emigrants by offering tax exemptions and transportation subsidies, the emigrants will include so many seamen that the French shipping will be hurt for generations to come, and the loss of so many craftsmen and intellectuals will leave France crippled."

Samuel Purviance b. 9/24/1728 Castle Finn, Ireland.(Tyrone?) son of Samuel Purviance and Lettice Dinsmore. He md. Susanna Schleydorn (Slidorn), 2nd. md. Catherine Stewart. He died 1780 Baltimore, Md.
He probably wasn't born in France as the mass
emig. of Huguenots from France began 43 years before he was born. I'm sure there are many Samuel Purviances.
If my information is incorrect I would like to have it corrected.
I'm a novice genealogist and only have the
records my grandfather gave me and the use of the internet.
