About Jean Soblet

In 1681 he was in Corsey.

Info on this line comes from John Sims,, 26 July, 1999

Philbert Soblet and Jean Soblet, both from Beaumont, moved to Sedan in the mid Seventeenth Century, where they both raised large families. Descendants of Philbert Soblet would eventually move to Germany and the Netherlands. Among the children of Jean Soblet and his wife Judith Lombard were Jean Soblet, born in 1644, and Abraham Soblet, who was born December 4, 1648, in Sedan. On March 31, 1675, Abraham Soblet married Susanne Briant in Sedan. There they had several children, including Anne Soblet, who was baptized October 22, 1675. By 1681, Abraham Soblet moved his family to Mannheim, Germany, to escape the increasing persecution against Huguenots in France.

In 1661, Louis XIV, an ardent Catholic, had assumed the throne of France. He increased the violent oppression of the Huguenots, finally revoking the Edict of Nantes on October 22, 1685. He exiled all Protestant clergy from France and the military attacked and destroyed most remaining Protestant churches. While Huguenot followers were forbidden from leaving France, many did manage to escape to neighboring countries more sympathetic to the Reformist movement, including Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. Those who remained in France were either imprisoned or killed, or forced to convert to Catholicism.
