Commissioned Painting of Peter & Anthony on Display with Prints Available at Annual Meeting

Our ancestor, Pierre Prevol (Prevot), was a passenger on the Peter & Anthony according to the passenger list certified by the ship’s Commander:

I, Daniel Perreau, Commander of ye above said Vessel, Certified that ye French Refugees--were Embarqued in London in my said Ship, for which said Passengers I have received full freight for their passage in London to Virginia and have given receipt in England for the same. James Towne, in Virginia ye 20th of Sept'r, 1700.

The Prevatt(e) Historical Society commissioned this rendering of the Peter & Anthony by artist Holly Diehl, a former resident of Tidewater, Virginia, who now lives and paints seascapes in Wilmington and Holden Beach, North Carolina. Replica items of this painting will be available at our annual meeting.

Huguenots Church Placard in Manakintowne, VA

Le 7ème PHS National était Exceptionnel

To say that the National Meeting at the Mannakin Episcopal Church was outstanding would be an understatement. It was truly exceptional in every sense of the word. Dr. Ann Woodlief, past National Librarian of the Huguenot Society of the Founders of Manakin in the Colony of Virginia (HSFMCV), and Bryan Godfrey, Assistant Librarian of HSFMCV, gave tours of the old Huguenot Church and Headquarters of Huguenot Society of Manakin.

Dr. Woodlief was also our morning guest speaker. After lunch, Dr. Don Marsh, U.S. Navy Veteran, Doctor of Pharmacy, and researcher of the Civil War and Civil War medicine, presented a slide show on the innovative technologies that came out of the Civil War. The day ended with a Banquet prizes were handed out. The next National Meeting will be in 2022. Please keep in mind, there is an annual meeting every year that is just as enlightening and gives members and their guests a chance to “Know Your Roots and Find Your Branches”
