Notes for STEPHEN PETTUS:

Dabney-Pettuses by Mrs. P. Stacy, Va. Genealogical Hist., p. 849

Stephen Pettus (Thomas, Thomas) called himself "Stephen Pettus of Hanover" in deeds to his son s in 1745 and 1754. In 1700 he was "of Blissland Parish, New Kent" when he signed a "lease-release" deed for "Littleton" and "Utopia" in favor of his stepmother's 2nd husband, James Bray . This deed is something of a mystery, quite lengthy but not complete. The "release" was not within it when found and we do not know what price Mr. Bray paid. How it was found and a full copy is given inVa. Hist. Mag., xivi  5. It was signed also by Elizabeth and Jane Freeman and their husbands. If Mr. Bray was safeguarding his wife's title to property left her by Capt . Pettus, why did not other cousins sign?

Blissland Parish was in lower New Kent, adjoining King William. Dabneys lived in New Kent an d King William. Stephen married Mary, daughter of Capt. George Dabney of King William. His w ill, 1729, names daughter Mary Pettus, and grandson Dabney Pettus, son of Stephen Pettus." In 1720Hanover was set off from New Kent. In 1727Stephen Pettus patented extensively in western Hanover. Louisa set off from Hanover in 1742,included part of his holdings. He deeded Louisa lands to sons, Dabney, John and George. To son, Stephen he deeded or willed Hanover lands .Hanover records were burned in 1865. He seems to have had a daughter who married Terry. I n 1761 John Pettus deeded "for love" to George Terry, had on his bond Dabney Pettus, son of Stephen. But this was down in Charlotte Co. Stephen Pettus , of Hanover's sons, all left Hanover and Louisa. And, oddly, as they went elsewhere, Overton Pettuses moved into Hanover and Louisa, and are known as the Pettuses of Louisa. George Pettus (Ste. Tho. Tho) was probably the youngest of the brothers. He may have gone to Jefferson Co., which became the state of Kentucky. There in1792 a Stephen Pettus married Elizabeth, daughter of Francis Adams.

Notes for DABNEY PETTUS:

"The Overton Family," Andrew Meade of Ireland and Virginia, p. 149.

Anne Pettus, who married Joseph Eggleston, is said to have been a daughter of Dabney, or John Pettus, and his wife, Anne Overton.

There appeared in the genealogical columns of the Times Dispatch of Sept.5 and 12, 1915, a very interesting article by Mr. Wilson Miles Cary, a prominent genealogist of Baltimore, dated July 20th, 1910, he having died since that time, in regard to the Overton family, from which he was descended. This article will be found in our Meade Papers, Vol. II. It is very comprehensive and full.

Mr. Cary in his article, giving "the family of Samuel Overton, who married Miss Carr", states : "In the Virginia Land office there is record of a deed for land on 'south and north folks o f Elk Creek, 7 January,1725, to William Overton, son of Samuel Overton, sometime of New Kent county'. It was SAMUEL OVERTON'S daughter ANN OVERTON, who married JOHN PETTUS, grandson of CO LN. THOMAS PETTUS, of "Littleton, who was Councilor of State for Virginia, 1641-1660.

We see that this, contradicting our other account, states that JOHN, not Dabney, Pettus married ANN OVERTON, and that he was a grandson of COLN. THOMAS PETTUS, of "Littleton", the Councilor of 1641-1660. Mr. Cary, being a descendant and a very skillful genealogist, was probably right. And this settles two points; first that ANNE OVERTON'S husband was a grandson of COLN. THOMAS PETTUS, SR., and second that most probably his name was JOHN, and not Dabney, or possibl y he may have had both names, thus JOHN DABNEY PETTUS.

NOTES ON PETTUS, at end of P. Stacy article in Va. Hist. Genealogies

Our records state that Thomas Pettus married first Elizabeth Dabney, and second, Mourning Glen n. (How strange and weird this last name is!) The children of the first marriage are the same you named, but Dabney ismentioned first, as tho' he were the eldest. This is the way our s reads:

DABNEY PETTUS, born in Virginia, married Anne Overton of Virginia. Issue: John Pettus, Col. W illiam Pettus, Stephen Pettus, Susan Pettus, and Ann Pettus, who married Edmund Eggleston of V a. John Pettus, son of Dabney, was living in Louisia Co., Va. in 1751, and is shown by the family chart to have married Mary Minor of Virginia. The will of John Pettus, son of Dabney, dated 2nd Feb. 1770 proved in the Court of Louisa Co. 12th Nov. 1770, mentions the following issue:

Samuel Overton Pettus, a soldier in the Revolution, who married Amy Duke, and had a son Hugh , born in 1789; died in 1864 in Cumberland o. Married Barbara Price, and had a son Samuel, who fell at the battle of San Jacinto, in Mexican War, for whose services his family receive d a grant of lands in Texas. Other children were John Waters Pettus, William Overton Pettus, Thomas Waters Pettus, Anne Overton Pettus, married Clivias Duke, Mary Waters Pettus, married William Blount, Barbara Overton Pettus, married her cousin, Thomas Pettus, of Charlotte Co., Va. , son of Thomas Pettus.

Notes for JOHN PETTUS:

Dabney Pettuses by P. Stacy, p. 857.

John Pettus (D., T., T.) called himself John Pettus sr. of Lunenburg inhis will, dated June , 1781, and proved in October. Named wife Sarah; son, John; daughters Elizabeth Ragland, Mar y Palmer, Sarah, and Susanna. His wife's will, 1798, named son, John, and daughters, Elizabeth Ragland, Mary Palmer and Sarah Pettus. Named sons-in-law, John Ragland, Karm (or Karom Bayne , and John Pettus, now the husband of my daughter, Sarah." and named granddaughter, Fanny Bayne. Evidently Susannah had married and died. Marriage bonds say Fanny Bayne married, 1804, John Smithson. And marriage bonds says Sarah Pettus married, 1785, John Pettus, with John Pettus, surety. The surety, of course was Sarah's brother. The groom was either their first cousin, son of Thomas, of New Kent and Amelia, or "John Pettus of St. Martin's, Louisa: (S., T., T. ) who had come to Charlotte about 1764.

Children of CONSTANT D'AUBIGNE and JEANNE CARDILLAC are:

i. FRANCOIS D'AUBIGNE (MADAME13 DE MAINTENON), m. (1) LOUIS XIV; m. (2) PAUL SCARRON.

Notes for FRANCOIS D'AUBIGNE (MADAME DE MAINTENON):

1 AUTH Huguenot converted to Catholicism

She would create a very fashionable school for girls at St.Cyr.  Madame de Maintenon is memorable as an educator and was responsible for the improvement of the moral tones of the Court . The Marchioness of Maintenon, la marquise de Maintenon, nee Francoise d'Aubigne, was born in the prison of  Niort on November 24 1635. To all intent, she was an orphan. Her father w a s Const ant d'Aubigne, seigneur  d'Aubigny et de Surimeau. Her Mother was Jeanne de Cardilhac.  She had chosen to stay with her husband in prison. Constant was in prison for counterfitting , but he was also a murderer. Before Francoise, Constant and Jeanne had two sons: Constant, born i n 1628, died  accidentally in 1646. Charles, born in 1634, died in 1703

Francoise's Grand-Father was Theodore Agrippa d'Aubigne(1552-1630),a soldier, historian and poet, Calvinistic, whose life, filled with dangers and adventures in the Huguenot cause under Henri IV, ended in exile at Geneva and died a hero. He is remembered for his Histoire Universelle and Histoire Secrete who were officially burned and he also wrote Les Aventures du baron de Foeneste and Les Tragiques, poemes satiriques

Her Father was persecuted for his Huguenot sympathies. In spite of her Protestant heritage she was baptized a Catholic.

When Constant came out of prison, sure of getting the post of Governor for La Martinique , he brings there all his family. Alas, the job is already taken. After two years he abandons them and goes to La Rochelle. The family spent some years in Martinique, but when they hear of Constant's death, Francoise and her Mother returned to France. They lived there in great poverty. At twelve, the girl and her two brothers were educated by a Protestant aunt, but the Mother of her God Mother, Madame de Neuillant, gets special permission from the Queen Anne d' Autriche to kidnap the child from this Calvinistic (Huguenot) home. At that point, Francoise  is used as a servant, herding the turkeys. Eventually she is taken to the Ursulines  Convent in Niort, until sixteen, but she still has not really adopted the Catholic faith so she is put in another convent, in Paris, where she decides to convert to get her freedom and becomes very devout.

She is still 16 years old when her Godmother decides to marry her and chooses a man 25 ye a r s older, with serious rheumatism.

He is a poet, Paul SCARRON 1610-1660, a French Realistic Novelist and burlesque playwright remembered for Roman comique. His Nouvelles magi-comiques supplied Moliere, Beaumarchais and Sedaine with characters, plots, and titles.

He holds a "salon" in their home. There we can see:Benserade,Marigny, Mortemart, Villarceaux,la marquise de Sbbvignbb.

Through his position she became a figure in the literary and intellectual  world of Paris , being a fine writer herself. In 1660 he died leaving her with some debts and again she found herself penniless, but the Queen-Mother continued to his widow the poet's pension. Later Mme de Montespan official mistress of the King at the time, obtained a pension for her.

In 1669 starts a real saga: Mme de Montespan is pregnant with her first child from the K i n g , Louis XIV dit le Roi Soleil (the Sun King). Mme de Maintenon is hired to secretly concea l this first child, waiting at the birthing, then hiding the child in small house in Paris , so that the Marquis de Montespan is unable to have the child to legitimize him. When the second child arrives, the same thing is required from Francoise, but he is kept in another house , out of Paris. When again Mme de Montespan is with child, the King decides to install the governess (Mme deMaintenon) and all his bastards (6) at Vaugirard. In 1673,when the Queen died, the King legitimized his children from Madame de  Montespan and Francoise was able to go to the Chateau de Versailles.

Mme de Montespan had been the lady-in-waiting for the Queen Maria-Theresa and after she was granted a divorce from her ex-husband,,the Marquis de Montespan, she became the Official Mistress of the King. She was eventually supplanted by Mlle de Fontange. The Queen, Marie-Therese , was devoted to Mme de Maintenon and died in her arms. It was in 1684, King Louis XIV, having had great esteem for Mme de Maintenon, secretly married her. Because of her high standards , it is unlikely that Mme de Maintenon had been his mistress, though it is possible. She remained with him until his death in 1715. She was judged harshly by the Ministers of the King because of her"undue" influence on the King on matters of State, mostly religious tolerance for the many Protestants still living in France since Henri IV.

She had Mme de Guyon released after 7 years in prison (house-arrest) because of  her Quietist teachings which had been disturbing to the Pope. She had founded a famous school for the empoverished noble-born girls, St-Cyr, which provided them with an opportunity to get the education expected when they would marry at their level or beyond, and when the King died, and c a me into power, she retired in St.Cyr

Notes for CORNELIUS D'AUBIGNE:

http://www.earlyfamilies.com/Pages/mullins-family-in-europe.html

After studying the route of individual Colonial VirginiaHuguenotfamiliesfrom their dia r i e s and family and church records, Ihave toadmit thepossiblity that several of our des Mo u l i ns relativesleftFrance by thelate 1500s or very early 1600s, making their way acrosst h e b order intoGermany (probably Mannheim, which was a city of refugeforHuguenots, andwho s e c h urch had a reader named duMoulin in thattimeframe), down theRhine to Amsterdam and ac r o s s the channel toEngland.There, possibly inthe Threadneedle Street Huguenot Church, th e Mu l linsfamily came incontact with Cornelius d'Aubigne (Dabney) and werebroughtto Virgi n i a by him and by other transporter-planters ofVirginia. Atleast two Mullinsmen are mentio n e d i n connection withd'Aubigne, thisearly planter ofrecognized French Huguenot origin : ( 1 )Joh n Mullins,who was transportedby d'Aubigne (Dabney) in 1666, and (2)MatthewMullins , w h o wa s settledon "Indian lands" in Pamunkey Neck,Virginia in1699 -- lands under thecont r o l o f Cornelius d'Aubigne, whowas chargedwith handling Indianaffairs for the Crown of Eng l a nd . I donot knowwhether there is aconnection between John and Matthew, but thisfamilyhi s t o ry postulatesthat Matthew is our first recognizableanddocumentable (albeit withcircums t a n tial evidence) direct-lineancestorin Virginia. I admit herethat it is possible that Mat t h e w ofPamunkeyNeck "settled on Indianlands" came on the third Huguenot ship,whosepasse n g e r list is lost,but of whom it is said that many of themsettledsomewhere outside theMan a k i n township which had been reservedfor theFrench refugees. (SeeNell Marion Nugent's Cava l i e rs andPioneers, allthree volumes, as thesource of the information on John andMatthew M u l lins and CorneliusDabney; the Parish and Probate Records ofthe Shires ofEngland -- availa b l e through membership in ancestry.com --as sourcesfor Mullins andDabney families in Engl a n d .)

The cause of these long and hazardous journeys through areasravagedbycivil war and pl a g u e only to embark on a transatlanticsailing shiptogo to the Colonies in the wilderne s s w a s the searchforreligiousfreedom. Let us take a look at the region of France from whic h ou r desMoulins direct-line ancestors possibly came.

In 1569, a while after Calvin had fled to Geneva and a few yearsbeforetheSaint Bartholo m e w 's Day Massacre of the ProtestantsinParis,Protestants occupied half the area of Viver a i s i n Ardeche. Itisperhapssignificant that this area is located on the route of Marguer i teo fNavarre -- the Protectress of Protestants -- when she traveledfromhercourt in Nera c , t hr ough the great learning center atMontpellier,and onnorthward to Lyon. After 1572 bro u gh t t he massacrein Paris, thewholeregion was enveloped in war, plague and famine. With on l y bri efepisodesof cease-fire, not really peace, the violent protestsof thedissentersf r o m th e established church and the resultingharshsuppression by theestablishment continu e d u nti l at least 1709,when aMathieu de Moulinwas executed as a Camisard (a violent Protes t an tmovement) inVilleneuve, Viverais in the Ardeche.

2. Another possibility regarding the relationship of these twomen--Cornelius Dabney a n d J o hn Mullins -- is that two oftheprominentpreachers/teachers of the Reformation being T h eod o reAgrippad'Aubigneand Pierre du Moulin, both having connections to thecenters ofProt e st ant learning and to many of the Protestant churches,the two mentookrefuge in Englan d i n t h e late 1500s or early 1600s.Each of thefamiliescould have produced men of a later g ene rat i on whocame toVirginia.

Stephen Pettus (Thomas, Thomas) called himself "StephenPettusofHanover"in deeds to hi s s o n s in 1745 and 1754. In 1700 hewas"ofBlisslandParish, New Kent" when he signed a "lea se- r e lease"deedfor"Littleton"and "Utopia" in favor of his stepmother's 2nd husband, James B r a y .
