  • Notes 
    • It is believed that the Maxey family is of French Huguenot descent.



      The Huguenots began with John Calvin a protestant leader following after Luther. Converts to the teachings of John Calvin became known as Huguenots.



      The Edict of Nantes in 1685 by King Henry IV granted Huguenots some toleration; however, King Louis XIV revoked this edict causing many of the Huguenots to flee from France with many finally settling in the English “New World”, specifically Virginia.
