About Louis de Reynaud

Louis DE REYNAUD(5) (206)(4) (2) was born between 1630 and 1640 in Chaillot, Paris, France. He died in London, , England. He has Ancestral File number 157D-D4M. Parents: General Louis DE REYNAUD and Frances D'Hamel DE DOUVRIN.

He was married to Anne DE LA CROIX about 1660 in France.

Children were: Francis REYNAUD, Marie REYNAUD, Sarah REYNAUD, Lewis RENO.

A bounty award from the English crown dated September 8, 1687 reads "To severall ye intended for ye West Indies" ... "To Lewis Reynaud of Angoumois, his wife and eight children for tools and others necessaries things to go to Virginia" granted 8 pounds; and "To Nichlos Hayward notary for ye passage to Virginia of Lewis Reynaud, Anne his wife, Francis, Lewis, Mary and Sara Reynaud their children, and Benjamin Reynaud, Mary his wife, Marianne and Mary their children, and John de la Chaumette" granted 33 pounds. And "To Lewis Reynaud and his family for supply" granted 2 pounds.

On March 25, 1688, effective March 31, 1688, denization was granted to Lewis Reynaud, Ann his wife, and Lewis and Sara their children, and also to Benjamin Reynaud and Mary his wife. The omission from this Letter of Denization of six children of Lewis Reynaud and two children of Benjamin Reynaud who were mentioned in the Bounty Papers might be explained by the possibility that these children were over 21 years of age when the denization was granted (The Reno Family, by William L. Reno, Jr.; Huguenot Society of London Publ., Quarto Series, Vol. XVIII - Letters of Denization and Acts of Naturalization for Aliens in England and Ireland, 1603-1700, pp. 204-209).

The following confirmation of Louis' letter of Denization by Nicholas Hayward is found in Stafford County records for October 2-3, 1688 (Stafford County Court Records 1686-1693/4, p.95, Virginia State Library, microfilm 7a). A similar letter was found for his brother Benjamin: "I Nicholas Hayward Notary and Tabellion Publick dwelling in London Admitted and Sworne doe hereby Certifie and attest unto all whom it may concern that I have seen and perused certain Letters Patent of Denization Granted by our Soveraigne Lord King James ye second under ye broad seal of England Dated ye 31 day of March in ye fourth year of his said Majestys Reign wherein amongst others is inserted ye name of Lewis Reynaud, Anne his wife, Lewis and Sarah their children who though born beyond seas are made his Majestys Leige Subjects and to be held reputed and taken as born in this Kingdom of England and may as such purchase buy sell and dispose of lands tenements and hereditaments in this Kingdom or any other of his Majestys dominions as freely peaceably and Entirely as any Subject born in this Kingdom and if ye said Lewis Reynaud Anne his wife and Lewis and Sarah their children by virtue of ye said Letters Patent are to pay Customs and Duties for their goods only as natives doe or ought to doe and to Enjoy all Liberties Privileges and Franchises of Subjects born in this Kingdom without any disturbance Impediment or molestation as by said Patent relacon being thereunto had may more at large appear of all which act being required of me ye said Notary I have Granted these presents to serve and avail ye said Lewis Reynaud Anne his wife Lewis and Sarah their children in tyme and place convenient. London ye 5th of April 1688. In testimonium Veritatis Signo meo Manual Solito signavi et tabellionatus mei Sigillum apposui Rogatus. [signed]

Nicholas Hayward, Notary Public." Recorded in ye County Court Records of Stafford this 2nd day of October 1688 per me, James Hearse Dept. Cl. Curr Staffd.

On the same page of Stafford County records Lewis and Benjamin record the brands that they will use for their livestock.

The greatest influx of Huguenots to Virginia occurred later, in 1700, when four ships brought French Huguenots to Manakin Town in Virginia. Among the names arriving at that colony was Lewis and Benjamin's other brother, Pierre: "Pierre Reynaud, landed at the James River on September 20, 1700, from the ship 'Peter & Anthony', Danial Pearrey, Capt.". This was the second of three ships carrying Huguenots to Manakin Town in 1700. The Peter & Anthony carried 170 passengers and took 13 weeks to cross the Atlantic. It is known that Pierre Reynaud returned to Europe where he eventually died, and he probably made more than one trip to Virginia.

      Louis and and his wife, Anne de la Croix, are known to have attended the baptism of Anne Flauhaut at Canterbury on September 22, 1695 (The Reno Family, William L. Reno; Hug. Society Publ. Vol. 5). They may have remained in England after this time, as no further record of them in the colonies can be found. However, their son Lewis remained in Virginia and is the direct ancestor of thousands of Renos and Reneaus.

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

Side Note: William L. Reno's 1975 manuscript and his published articles incorrectly showed this Lewis Reno as the son of Pierre Reynaud. Dr. Reno was unaware of the Stafford County records for Lewis and Benjamin Reynaud at the time, but court documents from the Thomas Stamps lawsuit in 1752 indicated that Lewis Reno was a naturalized citizen based on documents dated October 2, 1688, and Dr. Reno assumed that this Lewis Reno was Pierre Reynaud's son based on the following argument: "This date closely coincides with the Date (October 10, 1688) on which the Letter of Denization issued to his father, Peter Reynaud, was inscribed on the Patent Roll which was, of course, its effective date. The slight difference in dates was probably due to a clerical error in the many transcriptions which this court record has undergone; it probably said October 20, 1688, instead of October 2, 1688. If this be true, then October 20, 1688 would, under the New Style Calendar adopted in 1751, have been the equivalent of October 10, 1688 under the Old Style Calendar and would have precisely coincided with the date of the Letter of Denization."]

Pierre Reynaud, the third son of General Louis Reynaud, was born in 1632, and entered the military service of the Duc de Crequy

who was appointed military Governor of Paris in 1676. He married Sarah Regnaut of Artois and fathered four children before he and

his wife left France for England. Pierre (Peter) Reynaud probably went to England between 1685 and 1687 with his brothers Louis and

Benjamin. His wife Sarah and their children probably joined him in the spring of 1688, having left France by the normal channels

which required emigrants to abjure Protestantism and take mass as Catholics. Sherman Reno says that Sarah Regnaut had an older

brother, Michel Regnaut, who apparently preceded Peter and Sarah to England. On August 19, 1688, Peter Reynaud and his family

were granted a Letter of Denization (Huguenot Society of London Publications, Quarto Series, Vol. XVIII. "Letters of Denization and

Acts of Naturalization for Aliens in England and Ireland, 1603-1700", p. 210-214). See The Colonial Genealogist, Vol. IV, No. 4,

Spring 1972, p. 226: "August 19, 1688. Denization to severall persons, Our will and pleasure is, that you prepare A Bill for our Royall

Signature, to passe our Greate Seale, for the making of -- Peter Reynaud; Sarah, his wife; Peter; Lewis; Esther; and Marque-Frances,

their children; being all alien borne free denizens of this our Kingdome of England. And that they and every one of them have and

enjoy all rights, privileges and immunityes as other French made free denizens, do now enjoy. Provided that they live and continue

with their familys within our Kingdome, or elsewhere within our Dominions. And the sayd Denization to be forthwith passed under the

Great Seale, without any fees or charges whatsoever, to be payd by the sayd persons in the passing thereof. And for so doing, this shall

be your warrant. Given at Windsor the 19th day of August, 1688. To our Attorney or Solicitor Generall. James II, Rex" (S.P. Dom.

Car. 11, Entry Book 67, 1688 August 19, Patent Roll Oct. 10, 1688, P.R. 4, james II, part 10; Historical Mss., Commission Reports;

Huguenot Society of London, Reports, Vol. 18; List of Naturalizations and Denizations in England and Ireland, 1600-1700.) By the

Act of 1708, all prior prerogative denizations were converted into parliamentary naturalizations, retrospectively [Blackstone], and

repeal of this Act in 1711 did not disturb the validity of these naturalizations which had already vested under the previous Act.

The passenger lists of the ships which brought French Huguenots to Manakin Town in Virginia in 1700 contain only one name

under any variation of Reno: "Pierre Reynaud, landed at the James River on September 20, 1700, from the ship 'Peter & Anthony',

Danial Pearrey, Capt.". It is known that Marque-Frances Reynaud married Capt. Peter de la Billiere on Feb. 21, 1708 at St. Bennet's

Church in London, and moved to Ireland where the couple had six children (Registers of Ste. Mary's and St. Patrick's French churches

in Dublin, Ireland; Wm. L. Reno). Esther Reynaud, another daughter of Peter Reynaud, appears to have married Captain Benjamin

Malide and moved to Ireland, where a son David Samuel Malide was born on March 10, 1710 (Wm. L. Reno 1975). Peter Reynaud

died in Dublin on September 11, 1718 at the age of 86, and was buried there (Huguenot Soc. of London Publ., Quarto Series, Vol. VII,

Registers of the French Conformed Churches of St. Patrick and St. Mary, Dublin, p. 219). It thus appears that if he was the Pierre

Reynaud listed on the ship Peter & Anthony, that he returned to Ireland before his death in 1718. Nothing is known about his son

Lewis who is listed in the letter of Denization, and it is possible that the Pierre Reynaud that came to Manakin Town was from another

family, and that this Pierre Reynaud and his family never went to the colonies.

Children of PIERRE REYNAUD and SARAH REGNAUT are:

5. i. Esther3 Reynaud, b. Bet. 1668 - 1687.

ii. Peter Reynaud, b. Bet. 1668 - 1687, Paris, France.

Notes for Peter Reynaud:

Probably was the Peter Reynaud who took passage to the James River in the Colony of Virginia with other Huguenot settlers of

Manakin Town on the ship Peter and Anthony which landed there on 20 September 1700. Large movement of abt. 500 French

Huguenots from England to Virginia sent in four vessels to the James River at Manakin Town, 20 miles above the Falls of the James

River and northwest of the present site of Richmond. An Act of Naturalization was issued in 1707 for "Peter Lewis Reynaud

(Regneau), son of Peter Reynaud by Sarah, his wife, born at Paris in France" (Huguenot Society of London Publ., Quarto Series, Letters

of Denization and Acts of Naturalization for Aliens in England and Ireland, 1701-1800, p. 57, Naturalization Act of 1707; Wm. L. Reno

1975).

iii. Marque Francoise Reynaud, b. Bet. 1668 - 1687; m. Peter de la Billiere, February 21, 1707/08, St. Bennet's, Upper Thames Street,

London, England.

iv. Lewis Reynaud, b. Bet. 1668 - 1687. -------------------- [Steve Fancy research] According to the book "Landmarks of Old Prince William" by Fairfax Harrison (1924) and an article by Dollye M. Elliott in the Colonial Genealogist 9(2);58-62, many of the Huguenots who came to the Northern Neck of Virginia did so under a business venture by Nicholas Hayward, who made speculative investments in the English colonies from Virginia to Hudson Bay. Nicholas' brother Samuel Hayward was the Clerk of Stafford County, Virginia, and Hayward, George Brent, Robert Bristow and Richard Foot, four English businessmen, had secured a 30,000-acre proprietorship between Cedar Run and Broad Run in the Northern Neck of Virginia from Lord Culpeper that was originally intended as a colony for Huguenot and Catholic refugees from England. French expatriates in London were sought out by businessmen with land holdings in the colornies of Virginia and Carolina who offered promises and provisions to entice the Huguenots to settle there (including Letters of Denization, and bounty payments to the settlers). Thus, Nicholas Hayward essentially recruited Louis and Benjamin Reynaud and their families to settle on these proprietary lands in the Northern Neck of Virginia.

     A bounty award from the English crown dated September 8, 1687, reads "To severall ye intended for ye West Indies" ,,, "To Lewis Reynaud of Angoumois, his wife and eight children for tools and others necessaries things to go to Virginia" granted 8 pounds; and "To Nichlos Hayward notary for ye passage to Virginia of Lewis Reynaud, Anne his wife, Francis, Lewis, Mary and Sara Reynaud their children, and Benjamin Reynaud, Mary his wife, Marianne and Mary their children, and John de la Chaumette" granted 3 pounds. And "To Lewis Reynaud and his family for supply" granted 2 pounds. 
     Research by Thala Susag (tjsusag@aol.com) on her ancestor John de la Chaumette suggests that the John de la Chaumette traveling with Lewis and Benjamin and their families may have been related to them. Jean de la Chaumette was the son of Suzanne Reynaud (born about 1582 in France; died 19 Apr 1664 in Poitou Province, France) who married Jean de la Chaumette in about 1610. Their son, John de la Chaumette was born about 1660 in Rocheouard, France and died in 1728 in Stafford Co., Virginia. He would have been 28 years old when he made the voyage to Virginia with Lewis and Benjamin Reynaud and their families. This Suzanne Reynaud could be the aunt of Lewis and Benjamin. 
     On March 25, 1688, effective March 31, 1688, denization was granted to Lewis Reynaud, Ann his wife, and Lewis and Sara their children, and also to Benjamin Reynaud and Mary his wife. The omission from this Letter of Denization of six children of Lewis Reynaud and two children of Benjamin Reynaud who were mentioned in the Bounty Papers might be explained by the possibility that these children were over 21 years of age when the denization was granted (The Reno Family, by William L. Reno, Jr.; Huguenot Society of London Publ., Quarto Series, Vol. XVIII - Letters of Denization and Acts of Naturalization for Aliens in England and Ireland, 1603-1700, pp. 204-209). 
     The following confirmation of Louis' letter of Denization by Nicholas Hayward is found in Stafford County records for October 2-3, 1688 (Stafford County Court Records 1686-1693/4, p. 95, Virginia State Library, microfilm 7a). A similar letter was found for his brother Benjamin: "I Nicholas Hayward Notary and Tabellion Publick dwelling in London Admitted and Sworne doe hereby Certifie and attest unto all whom it may concern that I have seen and perused certain Letters Patent of Denization Granted by our Soveraigne Lord King James ye second under ye broad seal of England Dated ye 31 day of March in ye fourth year of his said Majestys Reign wherein amongst others is inserted ye name of Lewis Reynaud, Anne his wife, Lewis and Sarah their children who touugh born beyond seas are made his Majestys Leige Subjects and to be held reputed and taken as born in this Kingdom of England and may as such purchase buy sell and dispose of lands tenements and hereditaments in this Kingdom or any other of his Majestys dominions are freely peaceably and Entirely as any Subject born in this Kingdom and if ye said Lewis Reynaud Anne his wife and Lewis and Sarah their children by virtue of ye said Letters Patent are to pay Customs and Duties for their goods only as natives doe or ought to doe and to Enjoy all Liberties Privileges and Franchises of Subjects born in this Kingdom without any disturbance Impediment or molestation as by said Patent relacon being thereunto had may more at large appear of all which act being required of me ye said Notary I have Granted these presents to serve and avail ye said Lewis Reynaud Anne his wife Lewis and Sarah their children in tyme and place convenient.

Recorded in ye County Court Records of Stafford this 2nd day of October 1688 per me, James Hearse Dept. Cl. CLurr Staffd. 
     Lewis and his wife, Anne de la Croix, are known to have attended the baptism of Anne Flahaut at Canterbury on September 22, 1695 (The Reno Family, William L. Reno; Huguenot Society of London Publications, Quarto Series, Vol. 5, Registre de l'Eglise de Canterbury, Parts I, II and III, which reads "1695 Sept. 22: Bapteme: Anne, fille de Charles Flahaut. Temoinage: Louis Reynaut et Anne de la Croix"). They may have remained in England after this time, as no further record of them in the colonies can be found. However, their son Lewis remained in Virginia and is the direct ancestor of thousands of Renos and Reneaus as documented in this family tree.

-------------------- LOUIS REYNAUD - Born about 1630 and died in England:

A bounty award from the English crown dated September 8, 1687 reads "To severall ye intended for ye West Indies" ... "To Lewis Reynaud of Angoumois, his wife and eight children for tools and others necessaries things to go to Virginia" granted 8 pounds; and "To Nichlos Hayward notary for ye passage to Virginia of Lewis Reynaud, Anne his wife, Francis, Lewis, Mary and Sara Reynaud their children, and Benjamin Reynaud, Mary his wife, Marianne and Mary their children, and John de la Chaumette" granted 33 pounds. And "To Lewis Reynaud and his family for supply" granted 2 pounds.

On March 25, 1688, effective March 31, 1688, denization was granted to Lewis Reynaud, Ann his wife, and Lewis and Sara their children, and also to Benjamin Reynaud and Mary his wife. The omission from this Letter of Denization of six children of Lewis Reynaud and two children of Benjamin Reynaud who were mentioned in the Bounty Papers might be explained by the possibility that these children were over 21 years of age when the denization was granted (The Reno Family, by William L. Reno, Jr.; Huguenot Society of London Publ., Quarto Series, Vol. XVIII - Letters of Denization and Acts of Naturalization for Aliens in England and Ireland, 1603-1700, pp. 204-209).

The following confirmation of Louis' letter of Denization by Nicholas Hayward is found in Stafford County records for October 2-3, 1688 (Stafford County Court Records 1686-1693/4, p.95, Virginia State Library, microfilm 7a). A similar letter was found for his brother Benjamin: "I Nicholas Hayward Notary and Tabellion Publick dwelling in London Admitted and Sworne doe hereby Certifie and attest unto all whom it may concern that I have seen and perused certain Letters Patent of Denization Granted by our Soveraigne Lord King James ye second under ye broad seal of England Dated ye 31 day of March in ye fourth year of his said Majestys Reign wherein amongst others is inserted ye name of Lewis Reynaud, Anne his wife, Lewis and Sarah their children who though born beyond seas are made his Majestys Leige Subjects and to be held reputed and taken as born in this Kingdom of England and may as such purchase buy sell and dispose of lands tenements and hereditaments in this Kingdom or any other of his Majestys dominions as freely peaceably and Entirely as any Subject born in this Kingdom and if ye said Lewis Reynaud Anne his wife and Lewis and Sarah their children by virtue of ye said Letters Patent are to pay Customs and Duties for their goods only as natives doe or ought to doe and to Enjoy all Liberties Privileges and Franchises of Subjects born in this Kingdom without any disturbance Impediment or molestation as by said Patent relacon being thereunto had may more at large appear of all which act being required of me ye said Notary I have Granted these presents to serve and avail ye said Lewis Reynaud Anne his wife Lewis and Sarah their children in tyme and place convenient. London ye 5th of April 1688. In testimonium Veritatis Signo meo Manual Solito signavi et tabellionatus mei Sigillum apposui Rogatus. [signed]

Nicholas Hayward, Notary Public." Recorded in ye County Court Records of Stafford this 2nd day of October 1688 per me, James Hearse Dept. Cl. Curr Staffd.

On the same page of Stafford County records Lewis and Benjamin record the brands that they will use for their livestock.

The greatest influx of Huguenots to Virginia occurred later, in 1700, when four ships brought French Huguenots to Manakin Town in Virginia. Among the names arriving at that colony was Lewis and Benjamin's other brother, Pierre: "Pierre Reynaud, landed at the James River on September 20, 1700, from the ship 'Peter & Anthony', Danial Pearrey, Capt.". This was the second of three ships carrying Huguenots to Manakin Town in 1700. The Peter & Anthony carried 170 passengers and took 13 weeks to cross the Atlantic. It is known that Pierre Reynaud returned to Europe where he eventually died, and he probably made more than one trip to Virginia.

      Louis and and his wife, Anne de la Croix, are known to have attended the baptism of Anne Flauhaut at Canterbury on September 22, 1695 (The Reno Family, William L. Reno; Hug. Society Publ. Vol. 5). They may have remained in England after this time, as no further record of them in the colonies can be found. However, their son Lewis remained in Virginia and is the direct ancestor of thousands of Renos and Reneaus.
