Notes for NICHOLAS DEVEAUX:

From excerpts of Betty Mann's book "Devore/DeVore Families" :

1. Genealogy of the DeVeaux Family (1885) (Thomas F. DeVoe)

2. New York Genealogical and Biographical Record Vol. 110 pg. 101

3.LDS Microfiche-1984 NY

4.LDS Microfiche-1984 NJ

NICHOLAS DE VEAUX, his wife, Marie, their oldest child, Abraham, ans C1. DANIEL DE VEAUX/DE VOE/ DEVOOR, his younger brother, "came in the company with several other French refugee families, many of whom had, at an earlier period, fled to Manheim, Germany. When this place (Manheim) was invaded by Louis XVI, the family of NICHOLAS and others escaped to England. In 1674, they accompanied Sir Edmund Andros, the second Governor of New York, across the ocean.

" In 1675, NICHOLAS was found in the 'Night Watch', in Ha(a)rlem, having been called upon by the govenor to assist in protecting the inhabitants against the attack from Indians. Two years after, he was again enrolled by the Governor to assist in cutting 5,000 trees to erect a 'Palisade Wall' on the line of the present 'Wall Street' (New York), to guard against an expected attack of the Indians. This fact gave this prominent business street its name.

"NICHOLAS had previously obtained some land at Ha(a)rlem, as he was taxed for property therein 1677. He remained here but for a few years, when he removed to New Jersey, where he and his wife joined the church at Bergen in 1679. It appeared afterwards, that several of his wife's relatives had moved to Hackensack, which induced him to change his residence to that place. Here they erected 'The French Church', near where still remains 'The Old French Burying-ground', in which he and his first wife were buried.

" When NICHOLAS arrived in Ha(a)rlem, he found that A1. DAVID DU FOUR/DEVOOR, was already there. The surnames of each being so much alike, they probably came to the conclusion that they were kinsmen. This no doubt led to DAVID DU FOUR changing the letter 'F' in his name to 'V', and afterwards his generations altered it to DeVoor/DeVore and DeVoe".

[note : NICHOLAS' descendants used DeVaux and DeVoe]

[ NICHOLAS : born at Picardy on Walloon soil in France, a native of Festuber, country of Artois]

Notes for JACOB DEVEAUX:

Notes from Betty Mann's book of "Devore/DeVore Families :

1- Genealogy of the DeVeaux Family - (1885) Thomas F DeVoe

"JACOB was probably the youngest brother of NICHOLAS, DANIEL and FREDERICK, and was the only a child at the time of the escape from France to Man(a)heim. He remained with his parents at Man(n)heim after his brothers had left and probably became employed with business as soon as he was old enough. His parents preferred to remain there, as they no doubt had some hope that a change of the Government of France would take place before their deaths, and then they would return and again take possession of their property and home. These hopes were destroyed when the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, in 1685, took place, which was followed by their deaths.

"JACOB remained in Man(n)heim only long enough to settle his parent's affairs, as no doubt, the favorable account of the New World given him by his brothers, led him to quit Man(n)heim and soon after, he was found in Ha(a)rlem, New York. In 1705, he was living in the town of Westchester, a few miles from his brother C2 FREDERICK DE VEAUX's plantations.

"JACOB, however, made a short residence here, as he found the climate too cold, as did other Refugees who had settled in the neighborhood; so they concluded to go South, where great encouragement and kind treatment was promised to all French Refugees by the Governor of South Carolina. He (JACOB) had previously married Caroline Hunt in the town of Westchester and supposed to have at least one child, when he left that part of the country for the South, about the year 1708. Having considerable means, he was able to select a large and fine tract of land in the Beaufort District of South Carolina, when he became highly esteemed, holding positions of prominence both in the province and Church."

[Mr. DeVoe mentions only 2 sons who were eventually returned to New York/New Jersey area. There were DeVeaux in South Carolina in 1900. B. Mann]
