Terreblanque in Boucher

The older Jean Amiel was married to Anne Terreblanque (Terre- blanche), a patronymic which suggests a connection with a settler who arrived rather later than Mathieu Amiel, evidently towards the end of the seventeenth century. The Cape colonist Etienne Terreblanche - the surname is elsewhere always Terreblanque - is stated to have come from Toulon. There were indeed Calvinists in the naval port, many of them, according to Fermaud’s analysis of the composition of the reformed community there, single men. John Locke, who visited the town in April 1676, speaks of eight Calvinist families in Toulon. Male members of the reformed church were chiefly employed in the dockyard and it was to the civilities of one of them, the engineer Rodolphe Gedeon-Corneille, that Locke was indebted during his stay. There were also representatives of the Protestant lesser nobility at Toulon, as well as several Dutchmen, whose presence may in part have been due to the relative proximity of the principality of Orange. It may be added that several marriages were contracted with girls from Orange.

But if the surname Terreblanque has not been encountered in Toulon, it was not unknown at nearby Sollies-Pont, north-east of the port towards Le Luc. This was the strongest Calvinist community in the district, numbering not less than ninety persons in 1679, several of them in the merchant class. Here lived the weaver Louis Terreblanque and his wife Catherine, a member of the Meissonnier family, well established at Sollies and Le Luc. Charles Meissonnier was a cloth merchant at Le Luc, Henri a merchant of Sollies and Anne the wife of Louis Blin, active in the lace trade in the latter town. The registers of Le Luc record the baptisms of two children of Louis Terreblanque and Catherine Meissonnier (Meissonniere): Anne, on March 25, 1674, and Etienne, christened on May 25, 1670. The latter may well be the Cape refugee, who perhaps settled later at Toulon. Etienne Terreblanque (Terreblanche) has not been identified in the United Provinces, but an Isabeau Terreblanque from Provence joined the Walloon church in Amsterdam on December 28, 1687, where her name is coupled with those of a Jean Jourdan and a Jean Gardeau (Gardiol). Isabeau died in Amsterdam and was buried there on January 20, 1696.234 Her death could perhaps be linked with the departure of Etienne for the Cape of Good Hope. • M. Boucher.M (1981).
