About Gabriel Gustave de Crocketagne, II

http://www.geni.com/surnames/de-croquetagne

first child, Gabriel Gustave de Crocketagne' II, was born at Bordeaux, France, Oct. 12, 1672. In that same year, the Bishop of Lyons, through the King, issued the edict ordering all heretics (Huguenots) to leave the south of France within twenty days. Antoine, with his wife and infant son, fled across the English Channel (old Solon Channel) and remained in England for a short time, but as the hatred for the Huguenots grew stronger, they fled to Ireland, and, eager to lose their French identity, changed their name to CROCKETT. They resided at Bantry Bay, Ireland.
