Memoirs of a Huguenot Family
Memoirs of a Huguenot Family . Rev. James Fontaine. (1853).

Here is that classic history drawn from authentic family papers of the famous Huguenot family of Jacques Fontaine and the families of Fontaine and Maury, from whom thousands of persons now living in the United States are descended. The Memoirs concern the history of the family of De la Fontaine in France, England, Ireland, and Virginia, where Fontaine's sons and daughters mostly emigrated. The latter half of the work contains the journal of John Fontaine, 1710-1718, concerning his travels in Virginia and New York, and letters of the Rev. Peter Fontaine of Westover, Virginia; of Peter Fontaine, Jr., of RockCastle, Hanover County, Virginia; and of the Rev. James Maury of Louisa County, Virginia, who married Mary Ann Fontaine and from whom Matthew Fontaine descended. The work also includes an Appendix of nearly fifty pages of historical documents of great Huguenot interest, including translations of the Edict of Nantes and the Revocation.
