ID Number: I464

Father: Henri GUERIN

Notes


Daniel Gueran,26 sa femme and 4 enfans, - 6
Daniel Guerin (Gueran) came to VA with his wife, 2 sons and 2 daughters. (Huguenot Emigration to VA. p. 447). Sailed from Blackwall, ENG, 5 Dec 1700 on Le Nasseau. (Cabell, Priscilla Harriss, "The French Lands", Turff & Twigg, Vol 1, p. 238, n.9, Richmond, VA)


Daniel's patent, # 739, was not within the French lands. He witnessed numerous deed and wills and farmed the glebe land briefly (Woodlief, Ann, "Martin Family: The Huguenot Emigrant Generation"). He died intestate, and his estate was inventoried in full detail, by order of the Goochland Co. Court, 26 Nov 1730. This patent #739 was issued 1732, either posthumously to his son Daniel II or to his father Henri. The land was sold in 1735 by Daniel II's daughter Francoise shortly before her 25th birthday. Deed Book 2, p. 70, Cumberland Co. VA.


" The Guerin family settled in Anjou, France between 1520-1550. Daniel Guerin, his wife, and four children came to VA in 1700 on the Nassau from Saintogne, St. Nazaire, France, west of Nantes. His patent (#739) was not within the French lands. He witnessed numerous deeds and wills and farmed the glebe land briefly."


Saintonge was an old French province located just south of the city of La Rochelle, itself located in the small province of Aunis. A town or village named St. Nazaire was located at the exteme northwest end of the province of Saintonge, on the south bank and near of the mouth of the Seugne River, and very near Port des Barques, Soubise and La Rochelle. There is no doubt whatsoever that this is the town referred to as the home of Daniel Guerin, and not the town St.Nazaire which is located west of Nantes, in Bretagne.


Daniel Guérin probably came from St. Nazaire, Saintonge province, France. Baird, D.D., Charles W., "History of the Huguenot Emigration to America," Vol. II, pp. 17-18, n. 4 (Regional Publishing Company, Baltimore, 1966); Brock, R. A., "Huguenot Emigration to Virginia," p. 32, n. 26.


According to Baird, Mathurin Guerin and François Guerin, natives of St. Nazaire in Saintonge and sons of Pierre Guerin and Jeanne Billebaud, settled in South Carolina and are listed in the Liste des François et Suisses réfugiez en Caroline, etc.


Saintonge (Xaintonge), now in the department of Charente-Inférieure, was a province on the Atlantic Coast and the northeast bank of the Gironde River, bounded on the north by the province of Aunis (La Rochelle), on the south by the province of Guyenne (Bordeaux), and on the east by the province of Angoumois (Angoulème). The town of St. Nazaire was located at the exteme northwest end of the province of Saintonge, on the south bank and near of the mouth of the Seugne River, and very near Port des Barques, Soubise and La Rochelle. (It should not be confused with the town of St. Nazaire, near La Baule and west of Nantes, in the province of Bretagne. However, what is the significance of the name of Guerande, a town located just west of St.Nazaire and north of La Baule, and about 50 miles west of Nantes?)


Daniel Guerin(1/5/1663 Saintonge, France-1721 VA) and Marie L'Orange.


Marie was the daughter of Francis L'Orange, granddaughter of Jean L'Orange, and great-granddaughter of Sir Velas Orange, according to William Pullin, Guerrant Family of Virginia (at Virginia Historical Society).


Children:
Pierre (Peter) (1697 France-1750 Cumberland Co VA), m. Magdelene Trabue
(1715-) ca. 1732.
Jean, b. France
Daniel, b. 1721, m. Francoise L'Orange
Jane

White Slaves: From: Molinric@aol.com
Brian, Yes, there were indeed White Slaves. My GrGrGrGrGr Grandfather, Charles Springer, was a student in London, England, 1619 A.D., when he was knocked in the head, bound hand and foot, thrown in the hold of a ship, and sent to America, where he was sold as a slave.
His family, in Switzerland, believed him to be dead, for 5 years. He won his freedom, as ALL slaves did at that time, after 5 years. He went on to be one of the founders of Wilmington, Deleware. All of this is fact, not conjecture, and with some study of the Deleware connection, is readily provable.
My point is this; although there were in fact a great deal more Black slaves than White, the Black folks do not have a lock on the title of Ex-Slaves. (as if there are ANY ex-slaves alive today, Black or white)
I can document Native American Slavery, Irish Slavery, Chinese Slavery, etc. etc.
Slavery was, and is, an Abomination. I would challenge those who are screaming for Reperations to BUY THE FREEDOM OF THOSE IN BONDAGE IN AFRICA TODAY. Same Slaves, same Slavers (Arab), different day.
Rick Myrtue, in Missouri

White Slaves: From: merrill@clicksouth.net


Absolutely, Sir. I, too, am descended from White slaves. My 9th great grandfather, William Durgy, was an Irish soldier captured in battle against Lord Oliver Cromwell's English troops and "sentenced" to slavery on a Barbados sugar plantation. He served 7 years of his "sentence" before being freed by King Charles II. In fact, the Irish slaves in the Barbados were treated viciously, much more so than the Negro slaves by accounts. Another 9th great grandfather, George Darling, was a Scottish soldier who was also captured in battle against Lord Oliver Cromwell's English troops and "sentenced" to slavery. He served 8 years in an iron smelting factory in Massachusetts.


In the spirit of this conversation, I have a request for the list:
"OTHER" SLAVE DESCENDANTS:


If you have genealogical information that shows you have slave ancestors who were not Black, please share the info with the list. I think it would be quite interesting to see how many of us are being berated about Southern American slavery (of Black slaves only of course) when we are ourselves descendants of non-Black American slaves.
