About Susanne Soblet

The second ship, the Peter and Anthony, arrived in Jamestown in October 1700; included on that ship were Abraham's wife, Susanne Soblet, and their three remaining children.

According to The Sublett (Soblet) Family of Manakintown, King William Parish, Virginia (Compiled by Cameron Allen) 50th Anniversary edition from 2013 on page 129 it lists the children of Jacques Susanne (Gerard) Brian as including Suzanne Briant, wife of Abraham Soblet. I do not have permission to edit the parents of this profile at this time so i can not remove his relationship with Daniel Brian who looks to actually be her brother.

According to the book 'A supplement to the Genealogy of the descendants of John Hester of Fleming County, Kentucky', the painstaking location (England, France, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, 1972) work of Donald J. Sublette has found the following: "Abraham's wife was Susanne Brian, b. Jan. 23, 1660, daughter of Daniel Brian, a locksmith, and Rachel (Beguin) Brian. In 1679 this Daniel and Rachel (Beguin) Brian transferred their Huguenot church membership from Sedan, France to the Threadneedle Huguenot Church in London. The Sedan, France records list the following 4 children for Abraham and Susanne (Brian) Sublet: 1. Anne Soblet, bapt. Sedan, Oct. 27, 1675. On page 365 in listing the children of Abraham we find an Anne b. ca 1684 who m. Pierre Chastain. She d. April 3, 1723 2. Jean Soblet, bapt. April 29, 1677. d. Apr. 26, 1678. 3. Jacob Soblet, bapt. Sept 14, 1678. This may be the Jacques Soblet b. 1689 which is listed on p. 365. 4. Jean, b. Mar.10, 1680; d. Oct. 17, 1680.

On page 365 of the 1972 Hester genealogy there is the following listing for children of Abraham and Susanne (Brian) Soblet: 1. Pierre-Louis Soblet, b ca 1686. 2. Jacques Soblet, b. ca 1689. Could this be the Jacob named above? He died in 1741/42. 3. Anne Soblet, b. ca 1684, d. Apr. 3, 1723; m. Pierre Chastain. 4. Abraham Soblet, b. ca 1694; d. before 1720 5. Robert Soblet b. Apr. 20, 1698 in London; d. probably before Nov. 10, 1701. For more information on Pierre-Louis Soblet born ca 1686 see No. 2574 in the 1972 Hester Genealogy."
