Marguerite -Thérèse de Savoye

Born before 4 September 1672, d. March 1742 daughter of Jacques de Savoye b. 1636, d. Oct 1717 and Christine du Pont b. c 1640, d. b 1686

"Genealogies include a few instances of European women marrying non- Europeans. The most striking case was that of Marguerite de Savoye, the daughter of Huguenot parents, who in 1690 married Christoffel Snyman, who, according to oral tradition, made a living from pruning vineyards. He was the son of Anthony of Bengal and a similarly non-white mother. The well-known Snyman family is descended from them". See attached document/article.
