Goldham, Peter Wilson. (p.14) Baltimore: Genealogical Pub. Co., 1992

May 1705 -- Abraham Moulin was naturalized by the Virginia Legislature.

Kinship to Author: 9th Great-grandfather Notes from Dorothy Lewis: Abraham and his wife Rachel Broret arrived on the ship "Mary and Ann", at Jamestown, Virginia, 12 aug 1700, going to Manakin Towne with the Marquis de Muse colony. He later moved to Perquimons county, North Carolina, where he bought 200 acres (8 Apr 1701), on Narrows of Perquimons river for 10 Pounds from Mr. Sam Chritchinton. Deed Book B. witness to a deed 19 oct 1716, his name is spelled Mullen but signed Moulin. He lived on north side Beavers Cove Swamp. They had 6 sons. Either the Moulins brought money with then from Mannikan Towne, or theyprospered after coming to North Carolina, for we fine Abraham's Grandson Joseph, son of Isaac, on the first tax list of North Carolina in 1790 with 32 slaves. Since all the slaves were not taxable, this was evidentally only a part of his holdings. Joseph Moulin lived at "Brickhouse Plantation", on Little River. A brick house was something unusual inthose days. His children married into prominent families of the County. The deeds of Perquimons County show that he was a large land holderand a man of wealth. His grandfather, Joseph Sutton, was a Justice ofthe Precinct Court in 1706. May have died in Perquimans Co.

The names of 3 of the 5 ships which trasported Huguenots were 'Peter and Anthony,' 'Nassau' and 'Mary Ann.' The 'Mary Ann' was the first ship to arrive in Virginia (at the mouth of the James River).

He and his bride Rachel joined the large company of French Huguenots who sailed from Gravesend during the summer destined for Virginia. Their leaders were the Huguenot nobleman, the Marquis Oliver de la Muse and his assistant Charles de Sailly. The "Mary and Ann" reached James city, 12 August 1700, bearing the colonistsof what was to become the noted Huguenot of Manakintowne. Most of this company was made up of Protestants who had fled from France followingthe Revocation of the Edict of Nantes by Louis XIV in October of 1685. Abraham remained in Virginia until about 1708 when he first purchased land in Perquimans County, North Carolina. His descendants in America are in lineage from his three sons by Rachel, those being: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, all born in Manakin, Virginia, between 1700 and 1706. Pat Mullen Eddins

Abraham and his wife are listed on the roles of passengers of the "Mary and Ann," a ship provided by the King of England for French Huguenot refugees. Debarked on July 31 1700 at Jamestown, Virginia.

Abraham Mullins was born in 1655 in France. He died in 1730 in Albermarie county, Virginia. He married Rachel Broret on Dec 27 1699 in London, England. Ambraham Moulin and his wife Rachel Broret came over to America on the ship " Mary and Ann." They landed in Virginia on August 12, 1700. Due to the dangers of the Indians the captain thought it wise to have them moved inland about 20 miles. The ship log records read," Jaques Broret, femme et deux enfants Ambraham Moulin et sa femme.

[Manakintown Huguenot Ship Lists In 1700 and 1701, five ships brought Huguenot refugees from London to Virginia. No ship lists have been found for two of the ships, The Galley of London (came 1700) and The William and Elizabeth (came 1701), neither of which sent passengers directly to Manakintown. Ship List: The Mary and Ann This ship arrived at Jamestown on July 31, 1700, and many of the passengers proceeded by small boats to land recently vacated by the Monacan Indians which they named Manakin Town. The captain was Captain George Haves. It arrived at Hampton on 23 July 1700 with 118 men, 59 wives and girls and 38 children after a 13 week voyage.
