About Matthew Beraud

The New Bordeaux Militia was formed shortly after the arrival of the Huguenot colonists in 1764 to protect the colony from possible Cherokee attacks. The original commander was Daniel Due, but he was succeeded shortly by Jean Louis du Mesnil de St. Pierre. His Lieutenant was named Leorion, probably Pierre Leorion, and the Ensign was "Le Violette" (Mathew Béraud), who had previously served in the army of the King of France. Béraud succeeded St. Pierre after his death shortly before the Revolution.
