About Antoine Desaure Crocketagne

France to England to Ireland

By tradition he was one of the handsomest men in southern France. He drew the personal attention of the King, Louis, by his fine personal appearance and love of duty. The King was eager to retain him in his service and to place him second in command of the household guards. He was given this commission in 1664 when he was 21. It was there that he met, among many of the nobility, the beautiful Louise de Sais in 1669. He then resigned his commission as second in command of the King's household guards, in order to establish a home of his own. It was through the influence of the Maury family who he was working as a commercial agent in the wine and salt trade of Southern France that he was converted to the Protestant faith. It was ordered in 1672 that all heretics, Huguenots, leave the south of France within twenty days. Antoine, with his wife and infant son, Gabriel, fled across the English Channel and remained in England for a short time but shortly fled to Ireland. To escape their French identity they changed their name to Crockett.

From Kentucky Antebellum Portraiture", Edna T. Whitley, Nat. Soc. of Colonial Dames of Amer. in the Commonwealth of Ky., 1956, and "Genealogies of Kentucky Families", Genealogical Publishing Co., Baltimore, 1981 From "Genealogies..":

"In 1664 the father of Anthony" (Antoine) .. "obtained for him a position in the household of troops of Louis XIV. His fine personal appearance, splendid horsemanship and his devotion to duty drew at once the attention of the king, who was anxious to retain him in his service and to place him as second in command of the Household Guards." ...

--------------------

The Crockett family derived their name from Monsieur de la Croquetagne, a Captain in the Royal Guard of French King Louis XIV. The family converted to Protestantism, and, as Huguenots, fled France in the 17th century, settling in the north of Ireland.

-------------------- The Crocketagne family moved from France to Ireland due to religious persection. Antoine and his wife lived there for the remainder of their lives. Their oldest son was born in France; his remaining children were born in Ireland. There is no record of what happened to the oldest son. The remainder of his children are believed to have all immigrated to the United States.

("Eire" is Ireland.) -------------------- A Genealogical History of the Montgomery's and Their Descendants by David B Montgomery, 1903:

The first record we have of this family dates back and prior to 1643. Gabriel Gustave Crocketagni lived at that time in the south of France. His son, Antoine Peronnett de Crocketagni, was born at Montauban, France, 10 Jul 1643. In 1664, Gabriel Crocketagni, obtained for his son, a position in the house of Louis XIV. Antoine was one of the handsomest young men in the south of France, an excellent horseman, and devoted to his calling. By his fine appearance and love of duty, he drew the personal attention of the king, who was anxious to retain him in his service and made him second in command of the household guards.

The family was originally Catholic, but was converted to Protestantism (French Huguenots). In 1669, Antoine was married to Louise de Saix (through this marriage, the Crocketts are connected to the Marquis de LaFayette, his mother having been a Miss De Saix - Louise's cousin). Soon after their marriage, he resigned his commission and removed to Bordeaux, where he entered the merchants' service of the Fontaines and Maurys who had the monopoly of the wine and salt trade in the south of France.

Antoine's first child, Gabriel Gustave, was born at Bordeaux on 12 Oct 1672. In that year, the Bishop of Lyons, through the king, ordered all heretics (Huguenots) to leave the south of France within 20 days. They took up their abode in Ireland near Bantry Bay, where the following children were born to them (and they changed their surname to Crockett):

James/20 Nov 1674 Joseph Louis/9 Jan 1676 Robert Watkins/18 Jul 1678 Louise de Saix/15 Mar 1680 Mary Frances/20 Feb 1682 Elizabeth/13 Apr 1685

His parents were Gabriel Gustave de Crocketagne and Mademoiselle de Saix of France.
