MAJOR CORRECTION. BY 1550 (NOT 1650) Pierre du Monceau begins a long line at Bois Herpin. This notable family was from Gatinaise. We need to discover the relationship between Pierre du Monceau and the later Pierre Janvier Maineblanc,Viscomte de Bois-Herpin.
Pierre Janvier Viscount de Bois (b. Abt. 1620, d. Abt. 1680)
Pierre Janvier Viscount de Bois was born Abt. 1620 in Bos Herpin, France, and died Abt. 1680 in Ile de Re, France. He married Claude Marie d'Elbouf.

Family traditions and written accounts of the European origin of the Janvier family differ in numerous details. It has been said the genealogy records are filled with errors, purposeful and otherwise. Certainly there are contradictions about Pierre Janvier, whom we believe was the father of Thomas I, the "founder" of our American family. The family name Janvier was used until in 1750 when Peter Janvier legally changed his name to Peter January in Peters Township, Cumberland, Pennsylvania.
The Janvier's of France are traceable through several centuries. The usual family tradition has been that Pierre was born in Bos Herpin, France in 1620, the son of Pierre Janvier and Michelle de la Barre. One reference refers to him as Viscount de Bois Herpin, thus giving to him and his family the position accorded by his time to birth and wealth.
Most Janvier's in America have believed for generations that as a young man he visited Scotland, fell in love and married Claude Marie d'Elbouf, the daughter of a Scottish peer. This is contradicted by other information stating that her name was Claude Marie d`Beaumesuil and that she was not a Countess. In any case, she was a Scot and she was Protestant. Pierre was born Catholic but after his marriage he adopted the Reformed Religion (Huguenot). This changed respect to persecution by the French monarchy and his fortune was confiscated. He and his wife, Claude Marie, are said to be exiled from mainland France to the Isle de Re, which although belonging to France was at that time a haven for Huguenots. On the other hand, there is conflicting evidence that he may have died in Paris. Likely we will never know the true facts but the charming version that was a Viscount, married a Scottish Countess, became a Huguenot and was persecuted by the French monarchy who confiscated his fortune and that he was buried in his cellar likely will continue to be the most accepted and loved family tradition, as it has been for generations. There is one source suggesting that Pierre died childless. Almost certainly this is not true. Instead, we believe that Pierre and Claude Marie had three sons, probably born in La Flotte, Ile de Re. At separate times they fled to England and migrated to America.
There were three brothers THOMAS I, our ancestor, came in 1686, on the ship "Desire", landing in Philadelphia and moving later to New Castle, Delaware, where he became quite successful, PHILLIPE migrated to Manikintown, (Fredericksburg), Virginia and PIERRE to the Island of San Domingo, and later to Louisiana. There is a rumor that there was a daughter as well who is reported to have settled in Virginia, perhaps coming to America with Phillipe, but this has not been widely quoted.
Still another version of the Janvier-January genealogy has surfaced by the research of Donald J. Sublette, Birmingham, Michigan. He states flatly that the usually accepted story about Pierre Janvier is pure fiction. He claims that there is not the slightest evidence that such a person and the Scottish Countess ever existed. His research in La Rochelle, France (near La Flotte, Isle de Re) indicates that our immigrant, Thomas, was born in La Flotte, the grandson of Phillipe Janvier and Marie Annonnier and the son of Thomas Janvier and Susanne Mousenier. All of this is stated in a baptism certificate which also indicates that the Godparents were Abraham Jonneau and Marie Janvier (probably an aunt). Apparently we will never know the exact truth about our French ancestry. Whatever the truth may be let us let Pierre and Claude Marie rest in peace. One thing is certain: Thomas I came to America in 1686 and is the progenitor of many of we American Janviers-Januarys.
THOMAS JANVIER I, child of Pierre I and Clude D'Elbouf Janvier, was born ca 1664 in La Flotte, Ile de Re, France He married SARAH CROYSI or CROSSE DE JOURDAIN ca 1692 in New Castle, Delaware. Thomas was Christened May 12, 1669 in La Flotte, Ile de Re, France.
The Janvier family were Huguenots and three sons fled France because of religious persecution. Their property was confiscated and they were driven into exile for refusal to renounce their adherence to the Protestant faith. Thomas' father died, either in Paris or on the Isle de Re and was buried in his cellar because Christian sepulcher was forbidden to Huguenots. His mother was of the Scottish Presbyterian faith. Apparently the three sons escaped from the Isle de Re and later to England first, and then to America to enjoy religious freedom.
Thomas came to America in 1686, leaving Plymouth, England on the ship "Disire" as a servant to Mr. Francis Rawles. He arrived in Philadelphia on June 23, 1686 and was listed on the ships roster as "Thomas Janviers alias January". He moved to New Castle, Delaware in 1695.
Among the earlier settlers in the new world, Thomas could find understanding of the plight that drove him from France and the company of men and women who could speak his native language. It is reported that he was so bitter about the treatment of his family in France that he considered changing his French name to its English equivalent, "January". However, he is recorded in his lifetime only a few times as January, but many of his descendants who remained in Delaware, and some who spread over the country, kept the original family name, Janvier.
In 1695 Thomas married Sarah Jardine Crosse, the daughter of Dr. John des Jardine (also Jourdain) of Cecil, Maryland, who died in 1677. He was naturalized in Maryland, June 6, 1674 as a Protestant alien (Huguenot). He apparently died in New Castle, Delaware and his estate was probated there. Her stepfather was William Croisis (Cross or Crosse in some English deeds). Following her mother's second marriage Sarah was sometimes known as "Sarah Crosse". !Sarah's mother was Mary Tayne, daughter of Isaac Tayne alias Lapier. Sarah inherited from her grandfather Tayne`s estate the major share of a dwelling and garden on the Strand, a site of the present Presbyterian Manse. Here at No. 20 the Strand, Thomas and Sarah may have lived. The original house or one that replaced was destroyed by the New Castle fire in 1824. In any case the present Manse was presented to the Presbyterian Church in 1885 by Samuel Cooper, a descendent of the Janvier family. In 1707 Thomas Janvier and John Brewster sold to the church the lot on which the Presbyterian Church now stands, which was built in that year. On the original deed Thomas Janvier's name appears as one of the three signers for the church. Thomas and Sarah are believed to have been buried in the churchyard but their graves have been lost, although the graves of their sons' Thomas, Jr. and Francis are there. !His earliest interest was in woodworking. Later he became a miller with bolting mills and a merchant with diversified interests in maritime commerce and real estate. In 1703, in connection with a re-survey of 1701, Thomas is shown to own considerable land between Second and Fourth Streets bounded on the north by the present Chestnut Street.
Thomas was naturalized as a citizen of William Penn's Province of Pennsylvania by Governor William Markhan, February 21, 1695. (Penn archives L - first series - 1,118.) However, before this Thomas had renounced his loyalty to France and given it to Queen Anne shortly after she came to the throne of England. The London Notary, "Tabellion Public of Royal Authority", testified that "Letters Patent of Denigration, granted by our Sovereign Lady, Queen Anne," included Thomas Janvier, who although born beyond the seas, is made her Majesty's Leige Subject and is to be held reputed and taken as Subject born in this Kingdom of England and may, as such, purchase, buy, sell and dispose of lands, tenements and hereditaments in this Kingdom or in any other of Her Majesty's Dominions. (Deed book B, 1,272, New Castle Company, dated 1703, recorded August 23, 1704.) In the original Provincial manuscript, there appears the signature of Thomas Janvier upon a proclamation of King George II, which is dated New Castle, Delaware, September 4, 1727. He is also listed as a Judge. (Colonial Records of Penn., Vol. 6, pages 74-84).
Thomas and his sons learned crafts to support themselves in early New Castle. It was required by William Penn that every child in his province, irrespective of the means of his parents, be taught a trade or craft by which he could support himself and benefit the community.
Thomas Janvier January`s name has been placed on The American Immigrant Wall of Honor at The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc., officially certifying that he came to the United States of America from France.
In 1707, Thomas and Sarah conveyed part of their home lot at its Market Place end to the Presbyterian Church, and their neighbor, John Brewster, gave an adjoining piece of land. Church was built in 1707-8, New Castle Deed Book 1-40-1707.
Thomas Alibone Janvier Journal, 1869: "Deed from William Penn granting to Thomas Janvier a water lot, on condition that within seven years erect a wharf thereon and in consideration of the yearly payment of "one half bushel of merchantable wheat." The lot is in Mr. Janvier's possession and is used as a coal wharf.
Thomas was a "miller" with interests in bolting mills, and a merchant with diversified interest in maritime commerce and real estate. His earlier career was in woodworking and two of his sons, Isaac and John, followed in his footsteps.
Sarah Javier died in 1776 in New Castle, Delaware. Thomas I died ca 1728 in New Castle, Delaware. Both are buried in the Presbyterian Church Cemetery, New Castle, Delaware.

Like many descendants of Pierre Janvier, I grew up hearing that we came from an aristocratic French family. My mother and her sister also insisted that we had a connection to Mary Queen of Scots but no one knew where the connection was. I have recently spent more time on this question and have found some things of interest on the internet. As with all things on the internet, please use the following information with caution.
The d’Elbeuf family (sometimes also written as d’Elbeouf) is an old family in France. The Duchy of Elbeuf was formed in 1581 from the Marquisate of Elb Baronnies of Routot, Quatremare, Beaumesnil and Lordships of Groslay, Conches and Cruqueboeuf, Heuse and Cleon. (I have no more info on that and it would need to be investigated). This house has a connection to the House of Lorraine. According to page 14 of the 39 page paper (worldroots.com/brigitte/royal/kent/claudelorrainesdesc.htm and prepared by a professional genealogist) on the descendants of Claude de Lorraine, Duc (Duke) de Guise, Claude Marie d’Elbeuf married about 1605 Pierre Janvier du Maine-Blanc, Seigneur de Bois-Herpin. Seigneur means “Sir” in English. This is the first time that I have seen du Maine-Blanc attached to Pierre Janvier’s name and I will talk about that later. Claude Marie d’Elbeuf had two brothers: Rene d’Elbeuf and Charles d’Elbeuf, Chevalier (Knight) de Beaumesnil who died after 1675. Claude Marie d’Elbeuf has also been referred to on one site as Lady of Beaumesnil. (For your information, Beaumesnil is a town in France. I think it around Roen but I have yet to find it on the map).
According to this same paper, Claude Marie d’Elbeuf and her brothers are the legitimate children of Rene, batard d”Elbeuf ,Seigneur de Beaumesnil and Isabelle de Lormeau. Batard means “bastard” and his illegitimate birth certainly takes this branch of the family off the “noble” tree. The father of Rene, batard d’Elbeuf, was Rene de Lorraine, Marquis d’Elbeuf and Marguerite Chretien. Rene de Lorraine’s wife was Louise de Rieux.
The father of Rene de Lorraine was Claude de Lorraine, Duc (Duke) de Guise (1496-1513).and Antoinette de Bourbon. Of course all you history buffs out there are familiar with these names. Please take a look at this paper and decide for yourself if it could be true. While looking at that paper I saw a connection to Mary Queen of Scots: Claude Marie d’Elbeuf’s grandfather, Rene de Lorraine, had an older sister named Marie de Lorraine (aka Marie de Guise- Mary of Guise) She married (2nd marriage) James V, King of Scots and their daughter was Mary Stewart, Queen of Scots (1542-1587). If I figure this out right the connection would be that Claude Marie d’Elbeuf would be Mary Queen of Scots first cousin once removed and illegitimate (because Claude Marie d’Elbeuf’s father, Rene, was illegitimate). This brings to mind the movie “Elizabeth I” with Cate Blanchett . and the interesting (although I am not sure if it is historically correct) French characters in Scotland of the De Guise family. I know that there are some more interesting things about the De Guise family in Scottish history.
According to the Dictionnaire Des Fiefs published in 1862 in Paris(582 pages) (copy on google books online) the dates of the various fiefs/titles connected to the January and d’Elbeuf family are:
Page 28: Beaumesnil, S (Normandie); de Lorraine, 1458 (S means “Sir”)
Page 26: Poirie (le), S (Bretagne) 1650. Bretagne is Brittany. The mother of Isabelle de Lormeau was Claude de Poirier but I am only guessing at a connection with the above title.
Pages 354-357) Motte (simply too many to list and I do not know which one our Janvier family was connected with)
Page 304: Maineblanc, S. Janvier, 1700
Page 166:Elbeuf, M. (Marquis) (Normandie-Normandy)- D’Harcourt-de Rieux ; D.P. en nov. 1581 en sa faveur).
Page 51: Boisherpin, V (Viscount) (Ille –de-France). Janvier, 1700
It seems as if the titles of Viscount de Boisherpin and Sir du Maineblanc were granted (?) in the year 1700 which is after the time that our Pierre January emigrated to the US. I am quite confused by all of this. Since I do not read French very well I do not know if the dates mentioned are the original dates of the titles or maybe it means some change. My great grandmother referred to him as Pierre Janvier, Viscount de Bois Herpin de la Motte. I have seen on a French genealogy site that there are many Janvier de la Motte listed and also a Janvier du Maineblanc. This one states that a Claude Marie d’Elbeuf is the widow of Janvier du Maineblanc. She describes the Janvier du Maineblanc family crest. It is written in French and I will get it translated next week. I believe that the Janvier de la Motte families(I think they were from Brittany) and Janvier du Maineblanc are connected families. I have not found any real information about a Maineblanc except it bears the same name as a nice chateau that is now a bed and breakfast or mini-hotel; however I have no idea if it has any connection at all to the Janvier family long ago. There is actually a place in France called Bois-Herpin. It is a very small place (3.9 square miles)- south of Paris (closest large town-Fontainebleau) and, therefore, not in the general area of Roen where it seems the family lived earlier and only had 57 inhabitants in 1999. It is located in the department of Essonne (region of Ile-de-France) and belongs to Mereville Township and the Borough of Etampes. There is also a town called Elbeuf. It is outside Roen if I am not mistaken. The area around Roen (Chateau de Joinville) is also the location of the births of Claude de Lorraine and Rene de Lorrain. I have also see a declaration signed by a Pierre Janvier in Roen in 1640 (I believe). I have misplaced it at the moment but when I find it, I will post it. I think that the Janvier family must have come from the Roen area before they lived on the Ile de Re.

I think that the Janvier family must have come from the Roen area before they lived on the Ile de Re.

After reading about the history of Bois-Herpin, which had rights established in a charter of Philip l confirmed by his son Louis Vl, there is mention of one Pierre Janvier in 1603 and again a Pierre Janvier attending a wedding in 1679. Unless he lived to be over 100, our first Pierre, who married Claude Marie d'Elbeuf must have had a son Pierre, who married Michelle de la Barre and attended the wedding at La Foret-Saint-Croix. It appears that the younger Pierre had no children.

I want to expound on the family of Claude Marie d'Elbeuf. She was a cousin of the Duc du Guise, who led the charge for the French Crown against the Huguenots at La Rochelle and the Ile de Rhe between 1622 and 1629. History tells us that War was a "family affair" in the early 17th century. It is VERY probable that Pierre Janvier, a lessor noble and cousin to the Duc Du Guise would be expected to serve with the Duc during this time.

Our family lore has told us that Pierre Janvier was originally a Catholic who married a woman with Huguenot sympathies. This would have been very dangerous, since the Duc du Guise and his family were notorius for their hatred of Protestants.

Furthermore, in the French State papers of 1628, we find a Captain Thomas Annonier at La Rochelle defending the city against the Huguenots. Philippe Janvier married a Marie Annonier circa 1638 and named a son Thomas. It appears that there may have been many families who strattled a thin line between mainting their alliances to nobility and France while sympathizing with the Huguenots. More to follow!!

Notes for John Irvin January:
John January was born in Big Cove, Cumberland Co. Pennsylvania on August 29, 1767, and moved while a teen with his family to Woodford Co. Kentucky. He served in the American Revoluntary war, along with his father and three brothers. He married Susan McFarland on January 17, 1789 in Woodford Co. Kentucky. John bought land from William McConnell on Feb. 8, 1792 in Woodford Co., Kentucky.

The family left Maysville, Kentucky in 1819 for Missouri. They settled in Louisiana, Pike Co., Missouri. There is evidence of owning land across the river in Pike Co., Illinois. Not too much is known of his life in Louisiana except that he died on December 22, 1827 without a will and it took eleven years to settle his estate. There were five slaves with the estate. His son-in-law, Robert Foster was the first administrator, but was later replaced by William Campbell. Finally, in 1837 upon the orders of the Sheriff, all of his personal property was sold to the highest bidder.

Prior to leaving for Missouri, John was elected first elder of the Maysville Presbyterian Church on January 13, 1819.

Susan died on September 29, 1826. On July 16, 1827 John married Sara Block of Pulaski Co., Kentucky.

Samuel Alonzo January (b. 1792, d. Abt. 1860)
Samuel Alonzo January (son of John Irvin January and Sussanah McFarland) was born 1792 in Woodford Co., Kentucky, and died Abt. 1860 in Panola County, TX. He married Pamelia January on January 15, 1814 in Mason Co., Kentucky, daughter of Samuel January and Elizabeth Marshall.



Notes for Samuel Alonzo January:
Samuel Alonzo January, son of John Irvin January, married his first cousin, Pamelia daughter of Samuel January, when he was 15 and she was 17. They were married on January 15, 1814. There is some evidence that Samuel was in the War of 1812, but at this time he would only have been 13 years old. Stranger things have happened.

What we know for sure is that shortly after their marriage they left Maysville, Kentucky and moved to Pike Co., Illinois. His children were borth there from the years 1820-1838. They are listed in the 1830 Pike Co. census. there are deeds for numberous lots for Samuel and Pamelia across the river in downtown Lousiana, Missouri. Evidently, they came to this part of the country with his father and his family. They bought 40 acres of land in Pike Co. on May 3, 1836.

Samuel and Pamelia stayed in Pike Co. until John's Estate was finally settled in 1838, then they left for Texas, settling in Harrison Co. (now Panola Co.). The 1850 census in Panola Co. lists his children as having been born in Florida, but this is incorrect. This census also shows a child, E. K. Booker living with them. She was born in Texas in 1847. Samuel is listed as a farmer.

Judges of the Republic of Texas - 1836/1846 by Joe E. Ericson, states that from 1843 to 1846 Samuel was a Justice of the Peace in Harrison Co., Texas. Since records for 1840 for Harrison Co. have been destroyed, not much is known about these daring souls, leaving a comfortable home in Kentucky and traveling west when it was dangerous territory.

Deeds are on record in Maysville, Mason Co., Kentucky, where they sold property on December 31, 1816, and on April 8, 1822.

George G. January (b. 1825, d. Abt. 1862)
George G. January (son of Samuel Alonzo January and Pamelia January) was born 1825 in Mason Co., Kentucky, and died Abt. 1862 in Carthage, Panola Co., TX. He married Elizabeth A. Mills on Abt. 1845 in Panola Co., Texas.

Notes for George G. January:
George January came to Harrison Co. (now Panola Co.), Texas with his father and mother around 1938. The family settled around the Fairplay/Deadwood area of Panola County. Around 1845, George married Elizabeth "Lizzie" Mills, who was from Mississippi.

George was a newspaperman in the Carthage area. Around 1862, he was shot and killed. Several stories have been told about this but none have been documented as yet because records for the time in Panola County have been destroyed. The stories go like this:

He was shot because someone did not like what he wrote in the newspaper.

He was shot because someone said something about his wife and he went after him and came out on the losing end.

He was shot down in the door of his house in front of his family by a recruiter for the Confederacy because he would not join the Confederate Army.

At any rate, Lizzie packed up her children and moved to the Shelbyville area in Shelby Co., to keep her sons from taking revenge.
