He made his inaugural address the following Dec. 16th.” They had from this time on many more Latin poems that Duval cited. He taught there for 25 yrs. with honor, at the Univ. of Paris and was Prof. Of Latin. (See Dictionarie Historique.) He wrote in 1621 an epic poem on the military expedition of King Louisle Taste (Just) divided into 4 books under the title of La Bourbonide. This poem precedes some stanzas to the King in French verse and followed several little pieces by Remi in Latin verse, in honor of Monsieur de Verneuil Bishop of Metz and then stanzas in French verse to Monsieur le Comte de Moret. The dramatic poem held in esteem entitled ‘Dophne Triumphus Virentitatis in five acts with chorus’, was printed in Paris in 1643. Remi dedicated this poem to Cardinal Alphonse de Richalieu, Arch Bishop of Lyons, and Grand Almoner of France. Duval in his College Royal, p. 124 says “Remi prepared these poems in 1644 and also put to press a Universal Abridged Commentary and notes on Virgil. He wrote other Latin poems which were collected and printed into two books in 1646, the year of his death. This mixed collection of well constructed Latin poems had that which caused the author to be regarded as one of the best Latin poets of his time.” Of his poems the one most highly prized was the one which he composed o the Chateau de Maisons near Saint Germain in Laye, belonging to the President of this name, entitled Maesonium. Saurel in his Antiquities de Paris, Tome 1, Book 4, p. 327 says; “All that we have of Remi are a few little Larin poems entitled Maesoniam and Nympha Palatic, of which Nicolas Bourbon, best poet of his century, esteemed so much, that he said in time Remi was the equal of the ancients.” Guillaume Colletet composed the following verse on the death of Abraham Remi, Prof. Of Oratory, poet and interpreter of the King in the Greek and Latin languages;
    If death spares the mind and the doctrine
    Remi lives yet in the temple of honor,
    And singing of the heroes glory and happiness
    His voice is the echo of the Latin muse.
    He fills yet this precious throne
    In which Turnebe and Dorat were so glorious
    He makes Longueil relive in his style supreme,
    And of this great sun exalting the Maisons

This nickname he seemed to have justified by his publishing a book in Lyons in 1595 entitled Remegii Daemonolatreia.” “Said Bexton; it would be difficult to find a monument, at the same time more horrible and shameful, and filled with more monstrous cruelty or great vengeance. He seemed to have lost his mind, which was filled with monstrous visions, and all the phantoms of mania and fear. He was a blood Inquisitor and coldly boasted of the torture which he had made these unfortunates undergo, lest he be bewitched himself. All the darkest delirium could create a horrible and unholy dreams, that vile cunningness ever imagined of black unpowerful ridiculous character, which was a continual profanation of the words of the Scripture, he used to support his actions.” He also published the Historie of Lorraine, from Nicolas to Rene II, i.e., 1474-1508. This was published at Pont a Mausson in 1617 and at Operia in 1626. He d. in Nancy in 1600.

    NICOLAS DE LA RAMEE, b. about 1440, son of Pierre Remy of Liege (221), Commoner and Notable of Liege fled from the city after its capture by Charles Le Camaraire, Duc de Burgoyne in 1468, and found refuge in the village of Cuts (Cuth), Vermandois, Picardy, France. Being destitute, as all refugees are, he found work as a collier, or coal man. His family consisted, when he left Liege, of his wife and son Jacques.

Source; Huguenot Soc. Of America Library, 2 West 45th St., New York City. Count N. de la Ramee is said to have gone into the coal busiess for the reason that Cuts at that time was surrounded by woods and there was little land open to cultivation. It was a very small hamlet, very old and situated in the oriental limit of the Dept. of Oise, a very short distance from Noyons, the country of John Calvin the great Protestant theologian (1509-64), which probably had some influence on the career of Pierre de la Ramee, grandson of the Count. JACQUES was b. in 1470. He m. Jeanne Charpentier, b. in Cuts about 1510. Jacques left the coal trade and became a farmer and cultivated with great trouble. He d. and his widow was left with 2 sons and a daughter. These children were raised in the rude school of poverty, sometimes being hardly able to find food and warmth in their home. But one of these sons who was b. in the first year of the reign of Francois I (1515) was to make his name famous in all Europe. Children 2811* PIERRE DE LA RAMEE (Latin Ramus), b. Cuts, Picardy in 1515 of a noble family which had fallen to such poverty that his father and mother had to earn a living by working in the fields. He worked his way through the College of Navarre, got a teaching position and in 1551 by order of Henri II was given the Chair of Philosophy in the College of Navarre. He adopted Protestantism and became a follower of Calvin in 1561. After many trials and tribulations he was assassinated on St. Bartholomew’s Day Aug. 26, 1571. No children known. See later. 2812 FRANCOISE, sister of Pierre, b. in Cuts, Picardy just before 1515. She m. Noel Gaudefroy, laborer of Paris and lived with her father and mother. Children ALEXANDRE 2813 GUILLAIME was a cook in Paris. Mentioned in an estate settlement of Noel Gaudefroy, of Paris along with his wife Francoise de la Ramee Gaudefroy, having received an equity in the house of Septeuil in Mentes, dated June 6, 1542. Children - a son LA RAMEE, b. 1570, a son of Guillaume de la Ramee and a citizen of Paris, pretended to have been brought up secretly in the home of a Britain gentleman there miles from Nantes. This person was a pretender to the throne of France, almost forgotten by historians; about 24 years old who called himself the natural son of Charles IX, and who under this pretense went to Reims and demanded to be crowned King of L’Cloiles who went to see him during his trial said “When he was arrested they found a red scarf in his pocket, about which President Riant interrogated him.” he said “The scarf was to show that he was a good man and an honest Catholic, and a fierce enemy of the Huguenots of whom he would kill as many as he could and prosecute them until death.” The President demanded of him on what authority he pretended to make these executions and he replied that “as the son of King Charles, his father, who had begun St. Barthelemy, which he would finish, God granting it, to regain possession of his kingdom, which they had stolen from him, and with several other designs that he held along with certain revelations that he said he had received from an angel.” He was also accused of having made an attempt on the life of Henri IV. When his Majesty heard this story he laughed, added Astoile, and said “That he had come to late, as it was necessary for them to hurry away while La Ramee was in Dieppe.” LaRamee was hanged in the Place de Grieve in Paris March 8, 1596. _______________________________________________________________________________ PIERRE DE LA RAMEE (2811) 2811 PIERRE DE LA RAMEE (Also ramus-Rameau-La Ramee and Pierre de la Verure), said to be the wisest humanist of the 16th century and the first French philosopher before Descartes, was born of poor but noble parents in 1515 at Cuth, Village of Vermandois, Picardy, son of a gentleman of Liege, who fled from Liege after its capture in 1468, and took refuge at Cuts. His mother raised him carefully, and saw to his education in the local schools. His father was a farmer and both he and the mother worked in the fields. I his early years he was said to be a profligate, but gave his mind to science and a thousand little things. He was scarcely 8 years old when drawn by an irresistible desire to learn he set foot along on a trip to Paris. He was twice driven back by hunger and his maternal uncle, names Charpentier, brother of his mother, who was a carpenter in Paris, touched by his perseverance, consented to keep him, even though his only means were his daily wages. Ramee, trained early to think of his needs, at the age of 12 took a place as domestic of a rich scholar in the College of Navarre. Thus assured of his living, he registered at the Academy of Paris in 1527 and followed the course assiduously. He waited on his master in daytime and studied at night, given himself about 3 hours for sleep. At this rate he gained rapidly in his studies until at the age of 21 he received his Master’s Degree, after having upheld for an entire day with such skill and dexterity a thesis, against the theories of Aristotle. His judges whoever saw only in his thesis that “nothing that Aristotle advanced was true”, and thought it was an ingenious paradox. In this they were mistaken for he devoted his life to defend his assertions against Aristotle. Ramus was very clever, a good dialectician, a great mathematician, and of good morals. In his teaching he contributed much to the reestablishment of the sciences and influenced minds to make new researches instead of stopping at the philosophy of Aristotle. His Degree entitled him to teach the Liberal Arts, so he opened a public course in the College of Mans where he won many friends. He with two other established themselves I the College of L’Ave Marie, wher novel methods of teaching attracted a large following, Ramus combined the study of oratory with philosophy, for the first time, leaning to the rules of logic other than to antiquity, so that the pupils of the University of Paris heard for the first time that the authority of reason was above all even Aristotle. These efforts for reform did not please the fanatical followers of Aristotle, so when Ramus dared attack their idol Aristotle, with an energy sometimes unjust, violent protestations were raised against him. Finally the Rector had the two published books of Ramus censored by the faculty, and as a result Ramus was denounced before Parliament as an enemy of religion. Francois I then took the controversy before his Council, and had Ramus appear before them and defend himself. His Judges rendered a verdict March 1, 1544 in which the books were said to be full of lies, misstatements and falsehoods. Francois I sanctioned the sentence and Ramus’ two books were condemned and he was forbidden to teach philosophy. Thus overwhelmed by adversity and limited to teaching oratory and mathematics, he waited and hoped for better times, which came sooner than he dared hope. In 1545 fleeing from an epidemic of Plaque which scourged Paris he went to visit his mother and sister Francoise. While there the position of Principal of the College of Presles in paris was offered to him. By consent of the King, Ramus accepted this proposal as most advantageous in spite of the opposition of the Sorbonne. Under his direction this school which had been poor and little frequented became in a short time most flourishing. Pupils flocked to him from all parts in spite of the rigid discipline Ramus imposed. Although he restricted his teaching to rhetoric, his enemies still jealous conspired against him, particularly the famous Jacques Charpentier at the head of the Sorbonne, who tried to ruin the college of Presles by all sots of vexations and to torment professors and pupils. Charpentier tried to exclude pupils of Presles college from credits in the University, but the Assembly of philosophers reestablished the rights of the pupils. Indignant by these bickerings the Cardinal of Lorraine, who had become a staunch friend of Ramus while both were pupils at the University, and who remained his zealous friend until he turned Protestant, asked King Henry II to create a 12th chair in the Royal College in favor of Ramus. The King granted this request and Ramus was appointed Professor Royal of Oratory and Philosophy about Aug. 15, 1551. He opened his course with such dignity and force the following month and his fame soon spread throughout Europe, while at Court he acquired a reputation which served him well in later adversity. His enemies did not dare openly to attack the Lecturer for the King so did their best to run down the other teachers of the College of Presles. In his routine of moderation, which he had promised to follow, he patiently refused to reply to his tormentors, so that most subsided except Prof. Charpentier who alone remained vicious, until the wars of religion, he found way to do away with this man of whom he was so jealous. Until 1561 Ramus remained at least exteriorly a Catholic, although openly accused of being a Protestant by his enemies. It is said that after the Edict of Jan. 1561 he had broken or taken away the images of the chapel of his college. However his autobiographer M. Waddington affirms that all he did was to give his pupils religious freedom, of which the majority were Huguenots. The persecution to which he was continually subjected, under pretext that he was Lutheran, forced him to leave Paris after this famous Edict of Parliament, and hide at Fontainebleau under the protection of The Queen Catherine de Medici. His enemies discovered this and he had to escape by sudden flight. He went to the Chateau de Vincennes which he soon had to leave. He wandered around Paris in various disguises until the Peace was concluded, when he returned to his Royal Chair of Philosophy, which Charpentier claimed he owed, not to merit but to Des Guises and the Jesuits. During this period of hiding his library was pillaged. In 1557 the civil war began again and he again had to leave Paris. This time he threw himself into the arms of the Huguenots and was in their army at the battle of Saint Derris. Peace was again signed and he returned to Paris but seeing another storm brewing, he asked Charles IX for a safe conduct to visit in other lands. With this, after a trip full of danger, he arrived at Strassburg, where he was received with open arms. From Strassburg he went to Basle in 1568, and then to Geneva. The Protestant professors did not like him there, so he journeyed to Jurlich and then to Heidelberg, where he was retained by the Palatine Elector to take the chair of philosophy made vacant by the death of Strigelius. While here he received many offers; from the King of Poland, the King of Hungary and others but he refused them because he wanted to return to France. He left Heidelberg at the beginning of 1570 to visit Frankfort, Nuremberg and Augsberg, and on the way learned that negotiations for peace in France had been begun. He started home, but as peace was not yet concluded he gave a course at Geneva. The University of Bologne offered him the chair of Romulus Amascus with salary of 1000 ducats, but his love for his own country made him refuse the brilliant offer. An epidemic of Plague drove him from Geneva, and he went to Lorraine where he gave a few lessons. The Peace of Saint Germain was then signed and he returned to his beloved Paris. He found the College of Presles taken over by his enemies and the Order of Oct. 8 forbade any person not a Catholic to teach or be a school principal. Ramus then demanded help from the Kind and Queen mother, who had never ceased to show him kindness, and he received for his long service the title and salary of a Professor and a Principal, they even gave him the right to name his successor at the college of Presles. From this time he reentered his college and occupied himself wholly with literary work. He also began the study of theology and tried to introduce some reforms in procedure resulting in censure by the National Synod. Of Nismes. He during his life published some 62 works in Latin on philosophy and allied subjects. Ramus was a large handsome man, headstrong, with black beard and hair, large forehead, aquiline nose, bright black eyes, his face pale and brown. His mouth sometimes severe, sometimes smiling, was graceful, his voice grave and soft, his manners simple and severe, his clothes the same, but this simplicity did not exclude elegance and distinction. He treated himself harshly, lying on straw, up before daybreak, spending the entire day reading, writing, meditating, and eating the simplest diet. He had a strong soul and a noble character, coming to the help of needy but worthy students, refusing to sell his work. He remembered his early poverty and raised at his own expense poor children who seemed worthy scholars. He showed great love for country and family, his mother especially, whom he visited often with rich presents. He was generous to his only sister Francoise and took care of his uncle, who had helped him to his old age. His faults were an irritable humor, and excessive obstinacy, and a too great love for contradiction, which joined with circumspection and extreme presumption, in time brought about his destruction. Monsieur Francks said; (Academy of Moral and Political Science, Aug.-Sep. 1855) “ramus was one of the most fearless reformers of the 16th century, preparing the way for Science, and the new literature to be born a century later, by calling the human spirit to new hopes, new ideas of progress and liberty, to compose in short the foundation of the human spirit. Ramus had other calls on our gratitude for studying the master pieces of antiquity renewing literature, introducing along with Latin into colleges the study of Greek, and composing Grammars which were praised a century later, Books of Rhetoric, Logic, Arithmetic, Algebra and Geometry, which were translated and used in all the universities in Europe.” According to Tenneman, his principal merit was to provoke a reaction against the ancient methods of teaching philosophy, which had been used since the Middle Ages, under blind faith in Aristotle. However if he had given no other service than to revindicate the rights of reason and freedom of liberty to think not only in France but in all Europe, his part of glory would still be beautiful. It was in these peaceful pursuits that a horrible death surprised him. He had just refused to go to Poland because he did not want to sell his eloquence when the Massacre of St. Bartholemy occurred. On Tuesday Aug. 24, 1572 this frightful drama took place. Assassins directed by Charpentier forced an entrance into the College of Presles, discovered Ramus in a closet of his working room where he had retired for death in meditation and prayer. He was pierced by wounds and while still living was thrown from the fifth window into the garden. One saw his entrails leaving his body during the fall. Charpentiers pupils spread these on the street and also dragged the body through the street, while beating it with whips, by the feet, in scorn for his professions, and finally threw his body into the seine. Thus ended the life of one of natures great noblemen, whose life was filled with zeal for the good of humanity. PIERRE DE LA RAMEE dit Ramus. Last Will and Testament. ====================
    “In the name of God the Father, the Son, and Holy Ghost. I, Pierre de la Ramee, Professor Royal of the Academy of Paris, sane of body and of mind, but thinking of the fragility of life and of all the misfortunes of a trip that undertakes to visit the most celebrated academies of foreign countries, I dispose and order my will as follows: I recommend my soul to God who made it, praying him to be admitted into Heaven in the Communion of the Saints. I give back my body to earth from where it has come, until the day of judgment. In my yearly income of seven hundred pounds at the city hall of Paris, I will of them five hundred for the yearly salary of a professor of mathematics who, in the space of three years shall teach in the Royal College arithmetic, music, geometry, optics, mechanic, geography, and astronomy, not according to man’s opinion, but according to reason and truth. I name and establish as a professor for the first three years, Frederic Reisner, in order that he finish the works we have begun together, especially in optics and astronomy. If, during this time, he has accomplished the task that I have confided in him to following the method exposed in the “Proeme de mathematique” I shall continue his title for three more years. At the end of this time, or even after the first three years, if he does not conform to my wish, I wish that the royal professors proceed to a new choice in the following manner. of Lyons, and Grand Almoner of France.

    “The printed Lists of Immigrant taken by Masters of Vessels do not represent the true spelling of the names of at least half of the immigrants, for English Officers were not always able to spell correctly the French and German names, and wrote them down as they sounded to the English ear.” Rupp’s “30,000 Emigrants to America.” 1 JACOB REMY (name spelled variously Remy, Reamy, Rhemy, Remey, Rhamey) a French Huguenot refugee, was brought to Virginia in 1654, by Nicholas Spencer, Esq., under the Indenture System. His wife came under Indenture to John Brayton in 1654 but died on shipboard. See Page 45. 2 ABRAHAM REMY, a French Huguenot refugee, came on the ship Peter and Anthony to Virginia, landing at Jamestown Feb. 1, 1700. See Page 375. Harrison’s “Virginia”, Vol. II, p 160-1; “In 1690 King William sent a large body of French Huguenots to Va. And I 1699 he sent 600 French Huguenots to Va., under Phillip de Richebourg, who assigned them to lands on the south side of the James River, about 20 miles northeast of the present city of Richmond. This settlement was named Manniken town, from the Indian name Mannachoetan.” 3 JACOB REMY, (Rehm, Ram, Riehm, Remey, Remy) came from Germany, by was of England, to Pennsylvania on the ship Virtuous Grace, Sept. 24, 1737. He was from Alsace-Lorraine and of French extraction. Settled Berks Co., Pa. See Page 403. 31 FRANCIS REMY (Reamy), his son, came from Alsace Lorraine to Pa. In 1788. 4 KONRAD REEME (Conrad Remy, Reamy, Ramey) came from Germany via England on the ship Europa, Nov. 20, 1741. See pages 404-410. 5 MELCHOIR RHIME, brother of Conrad (Remy, Rahm, Ramey) came from German on the ship Fane, Oct. 17, 1749 to Pa. See page 404. 6 ABRAHAM ADAM REEME (Remy, Rehm, Rahm, Reamy) another brother, came from Germany to Pa in 1740. See page 404-429 7 JOHN OLIVER REMY (Ramey) a French Huguenot refugee, fled to Holland then to Nova Scotia about 1773; to New York in 1800. See page 431. 8 JOHN REMY (Remmey) came from France via England to NewYork in 1760 . New York City Records: “Will of John Reamey dated May 23, 1786, proved July 18, 1793 to sons Henry and John W. of New York City.” John W. Remmy was a Professor, and his son Prof. John W., Jr. Corresponded with Dr. Thaddeus Reamy of Cincinnati, and with Admiral George Collier Remey of Washington, D.C. about Remy family history. See Page 44. 9 NICHOLAS JOSEPH REMY (Ramey), a soldier of Napoleon, escaped from a Prison ship of Robespierre’s Commune and landed in Boston, Mass. in 1812. His home was in Lyons, France. His story fascinates the imagination. Read it. See page 436. 10 ANTON REHM (Remy) came from Innsbruck, Austria, to New York in 1816. He knew his name was spelled wrong, and had it changed by legal action to Rhame. (Still wrong). See page 442. 11 JOHANN PETER REMY and Gustav, came from Germany to Pa. In 1882. Sons of Johann Peter were Professors in Columbia University, N.Y.C. See page444 45 JACOB REMY, ORIGINAL FRENCH HUGUENOT IMMIGRANT ANCESTOR 1 (French 372421) JACOB REMY (Jacques), a French Huguenot refugee of noble birth, son of Pierre Remy (French 37242), was b. about 1630 in Picardy, Lorraine, France. He m. Francoise, dau. of Antoine Haldat II, Seigneur de Bonnet and his wife Madelaine Marchand. Fleeing from France on account of Huguenot persecution he got to England. He came to Virginia from England in 1654 under the “Indenture System”, bound to “Nicholas Spencer, Esq., who was appointed Secretary of the colony of Va., during the pleasure of the King Charles II (1606-1702) - March 2.” Original Lists of Emigrants, Vol. 1-1600 to 1637; Vol. 2-1662 to 1700, by John C. Hotten, 1874, p. 271, Vol. 1: “Fra. (Francois) Rame to Westmoreland Co., Va., by John Drayton, 1654.” His wife Francoise evidently did not survive the trip to Va., and he m. 2nd. In 1671 Mary Miles. He became a land owner in this year and was naturalized in 1680. He d. in 1721. “Westmoreland Co., Va., Court Records, Deed Book 5, p. 628; “Francis Spencer vs. Carderoy Vaughan, July 27, 1715; Deposition of Jacob Remey, that in the year 1661 he carried chains in a survey that was made on the land, which Nicholas Spencer, Esq., his then master, afterward purchased, and lived on by the aforesaid Nicholas Spencer, Esq., and one Richard Wright, etc. We find by the oaths of Mary Taylor, Mary Remey, and the aforementioned JACOB REMEY, that John Armsbys successors did live in the old field a little above where we began the survey, etc. that they (Jacob and Mary Remey) never knew the aforesaid John Armsby, but they heard and always understood that he lived there and that the land was called his, etc.” Forthergills Wills of Westmoreland Co., Va.; p. 4; “Will of John Armsby dated 1659”. Note; As John Armsby d. in 1659 and above deposition shows Jacob Remy living there in 1661, this places his importation at 1654 or before. His first wife, Francois, was imported in 1654 under Indenture to John Drayton, while Jacob was Indentured to Nicholas Spencer. Under this Indenture System large land owners and other influential men in the colonies made a contract whereby many worthy men and women were obligated to work out their passage money as servants to their “masters by indenture”. These so called Masters received from the crown 50 additional acres for each person so imported.
