About Antoine Gardiol, SV/PROG

Fled to Geneva with wife, Marguerite Perrotette, and three children and died en route to the Cape, 1688 Daughter Marguerite Gardiol born 2 October 1670 in La Coste, Provence, France

Gardiols in Boucher

Despite some variations in the spelling of names in different registers, it is evident that Antoine Gardiol, his wife Marguerite Perrotette and their children Jean, Susanne and Marguerite found a first haven in Amsterdam, joining the Walloon church there on December 28, 1687. Their stay was a brief one. On July 18 of the following year they are recorded as having left that congregation to emigrate to the Cape of Good Hope. They would seem to have embarked on the Wapen van Alkmaar and perhaps in the course of an arduous voyage Antoine died. His wife’s health may also have been affected, as we find her listed after her arrival as a sickly widow.

The Gardiols, as the name of Jean Gardiol’s farm at the Cape indicates, came from Lacoste to the north of the Luberon range.

  • Susanne Gardiolle’s birth is also known to have taken place there, doubtless before 1669.
  • Her sister Marguerite was born on October 2, 1670 and her christening is recorded in the Merindol registers eight days later.
  • Jean Gardiol was born at Lacoste on December 14, 1674 and was baptized at Merindol on January 8 of the following year.

The Merindol records contain the names of many Gardiols from Lacoste and from the villages of Joucas and Murs to the north, on the edge of the Vaucluse plateau. On February 11, 1683 a Pierre Gardiol of Lacoste marriedMarie Malian of the same village at the Merindol temple
