About Christoffe du Breuil
Jean Antoine du Breuil was born on May 15, 1728 in Manikintown, Virginia. He was the son of the emigrant Christoffe du Breuil and Marianne. Christoffe had emigrated from France to England and then to Manikintown, Virginia which had been set aside by the Virginian government for the use of the French Huguenots. Christoffe died either a month before or a month after the birth of his son Jean Antoine. Marianne married a fellow Huguenot named either Labairira (Lubarier) or Subrais (Subrier). (Note: Since the letters "L" and "S" are involved, it is possible that Labairira is correct.). It is not known how long after that she lived. Some writers state that she had sons and daughters by this gentleman, but apparently they have never been proven.
