      • ' GYSBERT THE HUGUENOT, born 1535, at Tourcoing in Flanders, was baptised in the Roman Catholic Church, but became a Protestant after the Siege of Tourcoing by the Huguenots, commonly so-called in derision after 1560, the word Huguenot signifying Confederate. Gysbert married, in 1558, the Protestant Heiress, Lady Marguerite de Ligne, and removed to Tournai in Hainault, where the public records show that he and his son Jean were residing in 1599. Gysbert's sister, Marie, married Jean de Glymes, Marquis de Berghes, Count of Valhain and Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece, a nobleman of Brabant. He was created Marquis de Berghes, 23d May, 1533, by Charles V., German-Roman Emperor (H.R.E.) - Gysbert's marriage with the Protestant Heiress and subsequent complete alliance with the Huguenots caused a serious family feud, he being the first Protestant in any branch of his family, and he was disinherited by his father. The estates passed at the death of the latter, to his sister Marie, in 1560, and upon her death, 22d May, 1567, without issue, to her aunt Marie, who, in turn, left them to another niece. Gysbert used the coat-armor of Barbancon, inherited from his mother, and the Lannoy armes of his paternal ancestors. His son ;

After the death of her first husband, Jean de Lannoy in 1604, by whom she had three children, two sons and a daughter, Marie married in 1605, her second husband, Jean Pesyn of Tournai. There were no children by this second marriage. In the History of the Town of Leiden, by Frans van Mieris, in Part I., page 323, is a most interesting account, illustrated by a map of the locality, of a home for the Congregation of the French Church, erected on the Pieters Kernhoff, by Jean Pesyn and his wife Marie de Lannoy who died 1650. Also in the Leidsche Lakenhall, a museum in Leiden, are still preserved two oil portraits of Jean Pesyn, two of his wife, Marie de Lannoy and one of her daughter by Jean de Lannoy. Marie established before 1609 a hospice, composed of twelve houses, for the persecuted Huguenots. John Robinson, the famous pastor, there took refuge with his flock in 1611, remaining until his death in 1625.
