"Josiah DuPre can to South Carolina in 1686, bringing at least one manservant and probably numerous family. That was the year following the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes. Almost the only immigrants to the Province were Huguenouts, but they arrived in large numbers. It seems beyond a doubt that Du Prè was of this group. In 1687, he was groomsman a a Huguenot wedding in the district later knowbn as the French or Orange Quarther, and there he eventually took up the land to which his headrights entitled him,\. In 1697, "Josias DuPresen, mercht, , Josias Dupree jr. shipwright, Cornelius Dupre planter", were among the foreignProtestants naturalized by the south Carolina Assembly. However as no DuPre is in the St. Julien List of Huguenot congregations in S.C. about 1696, it is possible that the family affiliated early with the : Anglican Church or one of the English Dessenting sects."
