A French Huguenot Legacy

  • From the Knights Templar to serving in the militia under George Washington, the Huguenots have been keepers of the faith, fighters of freedom, and left their mark on history. The Huguenots were massacred in France in the 17th Century when the Royals declared, "one king, one law, one religion." Fleeing for their lives, and for the right to worship as Protestants, many walked away from lives of nobility.  Jacques Guyon settled on Staten Island; Louis Guion settled first on Guion's Neck in Mamaroneck, then New Rochelle, NY.  Follow their journeys and the lives of their descendants in a true French-American saga.  375 pages / $19.95 / Genealogy appendix /published 2011/ 2nd ed 2018
