About André Laurent

Not much is known about Jean Laurent (1643-1681) and his wife, Elizabeth Manigault (1647-1700) except that they were from France. Only one son is known, and his name was Andre. Andre Laurent (1667-1715), son of Jean and Elizabeth Laurent, married Maria Lucas (1669-1716). Andre was born in La Rochelle, France, and was the first of the name to come to America. He and his wife, Maria, with their five children migrated to South Carolina in 1716. The family landed at Charleston with other Huguenots. The name changed with this generation to Laurens. Jean/John Samuel Laurens was one of their five children and was also born in La Rochelle, France.
