About Valentine Sevier (Xavier), I

Valentine Xavier was born in 1678 in Navarre, France. Because of the political persicution at this in France he Immigrated to England and changed his last name to Sevier and became a Protestant. He met Mary Smith in London, England and they were married August 6th, 1708. They had two son's; Valentine Sevier and William Sevier. Valentine Sevier is Dale's Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great Grandfather.


(3) Valentine, (Don DE XAVIER) was born in 1678 in Navarre, France, and on Aug 6,

1708 in Parish Of St. Giles, Cripringate, London, England, married (4) Mary SMITH who

was born in 1685 in Parish Of St. Giles, Crippingate, London, England.


Sevier is the English version of the name Xavier. The Sevier/Xaviers were originally from Navarre.* Among early members (but not direct ancestors) of the Sevier family is St. Francis Xavier. Two generations later, the Xavier/Sevier family turned Protestant (Huguenot) and after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, 1685, the family was forced to leave France. One brother,Valentine Sevier, went to London, then America: another brother, Richard Sevier, went to St. Petersburg, Russia. It is said there are Seviers in Russia to this day, but for obvious reasons that branch of the family has been difficult to trace. This much family history seems necessary as background to the following. *For those interested, see SEVIER FAMILY HISTORY, with collected letters of Gen. John Sevier, First Gov. of Tennessee, by Cora Bales Sevier and Nancy Sevier Madden, Washington DC 1961, published by Cora B.Sevier, second printing 1982.)
