About Rene Julian

Birth: Jul. 4, 1669, France Death: 1745 Winchester Frederick County Virginia, USA

Husband of Mary Margaret Scotlay Bullock (daughter of Stephen Bullock and Patience Paynter/Painter)

"Rene is said to have been a giant in stature with red hair, a quick temper, and an indomitable will, a Presbyterian of the strictest form who particularly disliked the Quaker Testimony against war and slavery. Rene Julien was born in France in 1669, was a Huguenot who fought at the Battle of the Boyne in Ireland in 1690 and came to America about 1700. Family tradition has him stopping at the island of Bermuda where he married Mary Bullock. He was a soldier in his youth and was in the army of James II in the English Revolution of 1688. For reasons of preference, he is said to have deserted to the standard of King William along with many others. For his services to King William, he was given a grant of land on the Mississippi River (another source says it was the James River District in what is now Maryland). His grown children were not inclined to go to what was then a savage region and they persuaded him to buy land. He went first to the shores of the Carolina, and loosing two sons there, he moved to the more healthy region on the Eastern shore of Chesapeake Bay. (There was a colony of French families on the Santee River in South Carolina who began to migrate about 1712, due to the unhealthy climate. Rene's family may well have been among them.)
