About Marie Maupin

  • Like most Maupin researchers / family members, including Dorothy Maupin Shaffett, I had believed that Gabriel's wife was a Marie Spencer, daughter of Lord John Spencer, and that Diana Spencer (Lady Di) was probably a descendant of hers.
  • Over the years, I corresponded with Dorothy, received her Maupin newsletters, and bought her book. In 1985 she received proof that Marie was not English but a French Huguenot, whose surname was not SPENCER but HERSENT [Erssen / Hersan (French pronunciations of Hersent)].
  • The four children born to Gabriel and Marie in Amsterdam were baptized at the Walloon Church. Names at baptism: Madelaine, Claude, Marie, Sara Caterine [Also known later as: Madeline, Claude, Mary, Sara Catherine]
  • [source: letter from the Director of Municipal Archives in Amsterdam in 1985 to Dorothy Maupin Shaffett, printed on page 39 of her book, "The Story of Gabriel and Marie Maupin: Huguenot Refugees to Virginia in 1700" (1st printing, 1993; 2nd printing, 1994) This book is available in print online and was digitized in 2007. It is also available in libraries (see for locations)]
