About Jean Michael Mauze

Jean Michael Mauzy

  • Born: 1647, France
  • Marriage: Elizabeth Blanchard on 5 Feb 1672/73 in Mauze, France

children:

  • John Henry Mauzy+
  • Michael Mauzy, Junior
  • Peter Mauzy

Michael Mauze and children, Michael Jr, Peter, John and Isabel, were naturalized at the English Court at White Hall by Royal Letters December 16, 1687 and again on January 5, 1688. This is the only entry in all the Huguenot records of England and Ireland referring to Michael Mauze' and his children.

The Mauzey-Mauzy family is of French origin and is an outgrowth of the name Mauze' (Moze). It played an important part in the religious troubles which swept across France during the 16th and 17th centuries and was represented, as it is today, by vigorous protestant ministers. The family resided chiefly in an area bounded on the north by Loudun, on the east by Poitiers, and on the south and west by the coastal cities of Rochefort and LaRochelle.

The focal point was the village of Mauze (Moze) Sur Le Mignon in Aunis, about twenty miles east of LaRochelle. Here the medieval Mauze castle is still standing in excellent condition.

The name Mauze is believed to have been derived from the Arabian word "Mauz", meaning plantain tree and was probably adopted during the crusades to the Holy Land. In France, it was written Mauze and Moze, and passed on to England, Holland and Ireland, Scotland and America as Mauzey and Mauzy as well as Mauze and Moze. The correct pronunciation in MO-ze, the acdnt being on the first syllable, the last syllable spoken in a soft rapid manner.

In various land grants, wills and other documents of colonial America the name was frequently recorded as Mozee, Mozie, Mozey. The Mauzy variation developed by the substitution of a y for an e and the Mauzy variant was adopted by the addition of a y to the Mauze, a common method of anglicizing certain French names ending with e. Moze was simply the other way of spelling and pronouncing Mauze.

During the period between 1681 and 1724, at the time of the Repeal of the Edict of Nantes, no less than ten Mauze (Moze) families left France and appeared in the British Isles for naturalization as English citizens. Representatives of four of these families remained in England, two went to Dublin, Ireland, one to Scotland, and 3 are believed to have come to America.


Michael Mauzey (Mauze') fled religious persecution about the time of the Revoction of the Edict of Nantes in 1685 in France; he and his 4 children were naturalized as English citizens at the English Court at White Hall by Royal Letters on 12/16/1687. Michael was born in LaRochelle, France and died in England.
