At Loudun, France in the early 1600, there were many Protestants. On 30 Oct 1686 the royal family of France, who was Roman Catholic, sent a regiment of dragoons there to compell the Huguenots to recant their beleifs in John Calvin's teachings Many were killed,1500 recanted. Many Protestants, before the Missionaries of Rome arrive, had fled. Jacob, Pierre, and Mathieu Amonet were residents heads of famlies at Loudun, France in 1634. Jacob Amonet, who, with his wife and four infants, reached the colony of Virginia in 1700, is believed to be the son of Jacob Amonet of Loudun, France. He had a brother Francis Amonet who married Jeanne Crommelin whose family were linen manufacturers in St. Quentin, France. This couple escaped to England with great wealth in 1681. Jacob Amonet did not go directly to Virginia, but first settled in Holland. He served as an officer in the French Army and later in the Army of Holland where he was knighted by William, Prince of Orange. He followed the Prince into England and helped him to secure the crown. Jacob Amonet, the emigrant, and his family came to Virginia in 1700 with the French Huguenots that settled in Manakintown on the south side of the James River which later was constituted King William Parish, Henrico County, Virginia.

Here he is shown as the son of Charles Amonett, the son of Jacob Amonett, the immigrant. 3 CHARLES AMMONETT b.- 13 Oct 1758, d.- 14 Apr 1833 sp--______ _______ (unknown) 4 CREED AMMONETT sp-- MRS.
