and Allied Families(Johnson, Swinford, Monroe, Riegal, Williams)

 

By Richard L. Tolman, Ph. D.

     In the course of a genealogical study of history, a pervasive and recurring theme is the vigorous, sometimes brutal persecution of non-Catholics by Catholic true-believers. It is a major motivation for the move of families from one location to another. This essay concerns one of these Protestant families that fled France after revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685 that had protected to some degree Protestants in France (called Huguenots). Those that fled to America first had to proceed to England in order to obtain permission for the move to America. After their residence in England for a time King William sent in 1699 a group of over 500 Huguenots under the leadership of the Marquis de la Muce to Gloucester County, Virginia (from the recording of children’s births in Abington Parish); this group included Jean deJarnat.1,2

     DeJarnat implies that the family belonged to the French nobility. The family of Jean de Jarno/Jarnaud/Jarneot occupied a fortress near Poitiers as early as 1454 and acquired land in La Seguiniere (near Cholet between Nantes and La Rochelle) at that time.3

     This Huguenot immigrant Jean deJarnatt married a Mary Mumford, a Virginian of Gloucester County in 1703 and raised a large family.4 There is no record of Jean ever leaving Gloucester County; his widow moved to Prince Edward County to live with her dau Elizabeth after his death.5 The oldest son Elias had many descendants.6 Little is known of the second son John; he is not known to have issue. Little is also known of the life of the third child, a daughter Mary.7 The fourth child Daniel has not received a lot of genealogical attention; he and his descendants are the subject of this essay. Daniel Sr. died in Nottaway Parish in Prince Edward County; his children included a son Daniel Jr. who was an itinerant carpenter—he married late eventually settling in eastern Kentucky as one of the first pioneers. The other (younger) children of Jean and Mary DeJarnatt were Elizabeth,8 Joseph9,10,11,12 (settled Caroline County, Virginia) and Ellenor13 (settled Prince Edward County); they are well studied and all three had many descendants. The Frost genealogy (note 1) is most comprehensive genealogical source for all children of Jean and Mary.

     Some histories or family trees14 have an additional child ‘Mumford’ for Jean and Mary, some say born abt 170015 others 1723—there is no actual birth record. It strains credulity that if the DeJarnats had a child out of wedlock in 1700, Mary Mumford would hardly have named him Mumford Mumford. A son Mumford b. 1723 cannot be ruled out, but no sources are available to substantiate his birth/baptism. A more reasonable explanation is put forth in the Torrance history16 of the Dejarnett family published in the William and Mary Quarterly. This history cites (p. 146) the Virginia Land Patents 1623-1774 where a Mumford Dejarnett was granted 400 acres in Amelia County on Mountain Creek; this is the only citation naming a Mumford DeJarnette. This is further clarified in the 1754 will of Daniel Dejarnett (1713-1754, a son of Jean and Mary Dejarnett) of Nottaway Parish, Prince Edward County devising to son Mumford 400 acres on Mountain Creek and an another parcel of 400 acres to his brother Daniel (Jr.) along with smith’s tools. The only argument against this explanation is that Mumford would only have been abt 5 yrs old at the time the patent was granted.17 This author has found no other evidence of a Mumford DeJarnat born in the 1700-1725 time period in the record.
