New Additions to Prince William County, Virginia
|Jeannette Austin||May 22|
Pictured is Picardy, France.
The Huguenots were French Protestants who were members of the Reformed Church established in 1550 by John Calvin. The name was used as early as 1550 in court cases against dissenters from the Roman Catholic Church, called "heretics". That name was banned in the regulations of the Edict of Nantes, which Henry IV issued in 1598. Later on, the French Protestants referred to themselves as "reformees". During the early 1700s, Francis Tennille was among those French Huguenots from Picardy, France. His son, Colonel Francis Tennille, served in the Revolutionary War as a First Lieutenant in the Second Continental Georgia, Tennille Battalion.
