Notes for JACQUES (JACOB) REMY, SR.:

Jacques (Jacob) Remy was a French Hugenot and nobleman by birth. He fled from Hugenot persecution in France to England. He later immigrated to the Colonies in 1654 as an indentured servant of Nicholas Spencer, Esq., Secretary to the Virginia Colony in Westmoreland County during the reign of King Charles II (1606-1702). He changed his given name to Jacob on arrival in the new world. He served his indenture and worked as a free man for other people until he was able to become a landowner in that county in 1671 and married Mary Miles that same year. He became a naturalized citizen in 1680. His will is in Westmoreland County, Virginia Will Book 7, page 254 at Montross, Virginia, probated Dec. 5, 1721.

It is not known what happened to Jacques' first wife, Madelaine Marchand. There is no record of any children from that marriage. Jacques' second wife, Francoise Haldat, also started for Virginia under indenture to John Brayton in 1654, but died at sea (Original Lists of Emigrants, Vol. I--1600 to 1637; Vol. II--1662 to 1700 by John C. Hotten, 1874, p. 271, Vol. I). He married his third wife, Mary Miles, after becoming a landowner in his new homeland.

Children of JACQUES REMY and MARY MILES are:

7. i. WILLIAM6 REMY, SR., b. 1672, Westmoreland Co., Virginia, USA; d. 1738. 8. ii. JACOB REMY, JR., b. 1675, Westmoreland Co., Virginia, USA; d. 1726, Westmoreland Co., Virginia, USA.

http://www.potterflats.com/d826.html Jacob Remy was married to Francoisse Haldat (daughter of Antoine Haldat, II Signeur DE BONNET and Magdalene Marchand ).

Jacob Remy was a French Huguenot like his father, Pierre Remy, and grandparents. Francoisse Haldat's family were also Huguenots. During Jacob's childhood and after his marriage to Francoise, he experienced severe religious persecution by the Catholic government of France. Because this persecution was life threatening Jacob and his bride were forced to flee from France to England. From England, he tried to find a way to the New World where religious freedom was assured.

Because Jacob Remy had left all his worldly goods in France and could not afford passage to America, he became an indentured servant bound to Nicholas Spenser , the Secretary of the Colony of Virginia, under King Charles II . His bride Francoise also became an indentured servant and was bound to John Brayton . They departed from England in 1654. During the trip Francoise died and Jacob landed safely at Virginia in 1655.

Jacob Remy settled in Westmoreland County, Virginia. Most likley he gained his freedom when he married his master's daughter, Mary in 1671. Jacob Remy purchased 200 acres of land in Westmoreland County from William Pierce on 21 July 1671. This land was located in the Nominee Forest in Cople Parish near the Nomini River.

On 29 September 1680 Jacob traveled to James City, Virginia and stood before Sir Henry Chichley , Knight, His Majesty's Deputy Governor and Commander in Chief to obtain Virginia citizenship. He became a naturalized citizen after swearing an oath of allegience. Jacob was referred to as a subject of the French King before his allegience to England and becoming a citizen of Virginia. Jacob Remy was naturalized in 1680. The following is a copy of his naturalization papers:

THE REMY FAMILY IN FRANCE AND VIRGINIA

The ancient French family of Remi (Remy) was originally a tribe of Gaul

(Northern France and Belgium). The family was represented in French history

by Bishop Saint Remi of Rheims (437-533), Abbot Remi of Strasbourg who died

in 768, Archbishop Remi of Rouen who died in 771, the King of the Lombards

(750-800), and many other famous people. Didier Remy of this French family

was ennobled 13 Sept. 1554 and died in 1556. His son George Remy was also

ennobled. George's son Jacques Remy was born in Ivoy in the Department of

Ardennes about 1545-7. Jacques Remy became a Huguenot and was killed in

Ivoy. His son Pierre Remy who was born about 1600 was also a Huguenot and

was killed. Pierre's son Jacques Remy was born about 1630 in Picardy,

Lorraine. Jacques Remy married Francoise, daughter of Antoine Haldat II,

Seigneur de Bonnet, and Madelaine Marchand. Jacques and Francoise fled to

England because of Huguenot persecution. Jacques Remy, a huguenot refugee

and a nobleman by birth, was brought to Virginia in 1654 by Nicholas Spencer,

Esg., under the indenture system. His wife Francoise started for Virginia

under indenture to John Brayton also in 1654, but died at sea.

Jacob (his name was anglicized in Virginia) Remy served his

indenture in Westmoreland County, Virginia. Then he worked as a free man for

other people until he was able to become a landowner in that county in 1671,

and married Mary Miles that same year. Jacob died in 1721.

There are 19 know Remy Coats of Arms, most of which probably have no tie to America. 

1.Nicolas de la Ramee, who was a Huguenot assassinated on 24 Aug 1572 had a Coat of Arms. It was a silver St. Andrews Cross on a blue field. In each diagonal corner was a gold pigeon. I've seen this Coat of Arms used in reference to the descendants of Jacques/Jacob Remy.

2.Didler Remy from the Lorraine region of France, and his descendants used a Coat of Arms that had a gold field (background), with a red bar running across the center horizontally, and 2 black pigeons above the bar and one below it. Didler was ennobled in 1560.

3.Jacques Remy of Ivoy, Lorraine died in 1568. His sons, Johannes, Matthew, Jacques and Pierre were Huguenots and had to flee for their lives. It is his grandson Jacques (son of Pierre) that was indentured to Nicholas Spencer and came to Virginia in 1654. His Uncle Jacques went to Greenhausen on the Rhine (Germany?). He registered a Coat of Arms in Rotterdam.
