About Rev. John Mariner

  • Past and current members have joined the Huguenot Society of America by right of descent from the following Huguenot ancestors who qualify under the constitution of the Society: Mariner, Rev. John.
  • "John Mariner, born 1644, whose descendants intermarried with the Dyer, Davis, and Roberts families, was of Gloucester, Massachusetts in 1708. It is probable he came to Boston with a number of French Protestants in 1687." (1)
  • " John Marin, or Mariner, was a poor minister who had felt the full effects of the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, in 1685 ; yet, as the preacher Saurin said, "A thousand dreadful blows were struck at our afflicted churches before that which destroyed them." The pastors of the Reformed Church, as soon as the Revocation was registered, on October 22, were allowed fifteen days for their departure from the kingdom ; in addition, every cunning device was used to prevent their crossing the border within that time. They were allowed to take neither wife nor children, and forbidden to carry their movables or to dispose of their estates. Yet hundreds of pastors escaped, and were joined by their families in England, Ireland, or America, though stripped of all their worldly possessions. " (2)

  2. Historical note as to John LeMariner - French Huguenot via Boston (1644-1713) is critical due to the accession of King Louis IV, who by RC advice revoked the Edict of Nantes of King Henri IV - which had tolerated french Protestantism (Henri IV was a Hugenot, Duc d'Orleans who became the French King and converted to Roman Catholicism) ... Boston was then, with Cromwell's Protectorate a critical Protestant camp -especially for the Puritan Calvinism akin to the Hugenot Calvinism.
