The ancient French family of Remi (Remy) was originally a tribe of Gaul
(Northern France and Belgium). The family was represented in French history
by Bishop Saint Remi of Rheims (437-533), Abbot Remi of Strasbourg who died
in 768, Archbishop Remi of Rouen who died in 771, the King of the Lombards
(750-800), and many other famous people. Didier Remy of this French family
was ennobled 13 Sept. 1554 and died in 1556. His son George Remy was also
ennobled. George's son Jacques Remy was born in Ivoy in the Department of
Ardennes about 1545-7. Jacques Remy became a Huguenot and was killed in
Ivoy. His son Pierre Remy who was born about 1600 was also a Huguenot and
was killed. Pierre's son Jacques Remy was born about 1630 in Picardy,
Lorraine. Jacques Remy married Francoise, daughter of Antoine Haldat II,
Seigneur de Bonnet, and Madelaine Marchand. Jacques and Francoise fled to
England because of Huguenot persecution. Jacques Remy, a huguenot refugee
and a nobleman by birth, was brought to Virginia in 1654 by Nicholas Spencer,
Esg., under the indenture system. His wife Francoise started for Virginia
under indenture to John Brayton also in 1654, but died at sea.
Jacob (his name was anglicized in Virginia) Remy served his
indenture in Westmoreland County, Virginia. Then he worked as a free man for
other people until he was able to become a landowner in that county in 1671,
and married Mary Miles that same year. Jacob died in 1721.
