Robert [Beauchamp] Coat of Arms

Coats of Arms from Ireland and around the World by Eddie Geoghegan




Between centuries sixteen and eighteen, thousands of French Protestants or Huguenots were forced to flee their country to escape religious persecution by the Roman Catholic Church with government approval and encouragement. Many 'Wars of Religion' were fought and many lives were lost. Many of earliest known Roberts family ancestors were among these emigrants that fled across the border into Switzerland and later to America.

The extent of our current knowledge base for the Roberts Family Tree begins with Jehan Robert in the 1400's, in the town of Le Locle, Neufchatel, Switzerland. Included are seven generations of direct descendants of Jehan Robert leading up to the Reverend Pierre Robert. In 1686 Pierre became the first of our ancestors to leave Switzerland and lead his family to America to begin a new life. This information indicates that our Roberts family ancestors were already in Switzerland many years prior to the "Wars of Religion" in France (1562-1598).

South Carolina's recorded history begins in the mid 1500s, when Europeans first arrived, though the area had been inhabited long before then. The Cherokee Nation was prominent in the area at the time that Europeans first arrived. Even though the French and Spanish were attracted to the coast of South Carolina in the 16th century, it was the English who established the first sustained European settlement, near present-day Charleston.

The earliest Robert family members established their homes primarily in the Beaufort District and Berkeley County South Carolina areas and various other French and British settlements in the state. Future generations saw migrations to many parts of the country with a large representation in Florida and other southern states. The first indication of the name change (Robert to Roberts) occurs in the mid 1700's with the family of John Robert.

Notes for Daniel Robert:
Daniel Robert and Marie Petremand are my biological maternal 9th great grandparents.

The following is from "Our Family Circle," by Annie Elizabeth Miller, 1957 (the majority also included in "Three Pioneer Rapides Families" and "General Leroy Augustus Stafford," both by George Mason Graham Stafford):

"Daniel ROBERT was born at Basle, Switzerland, in 1625, married Marie Petremand, and located at St. Imier, Switzerland, where, in 1656, their son Pierre ROBERT was born. The early ROBERT ancestors are supposed to have gone from France to Wales, then to have returned to France, later joining the persecuted Protestant refugees who settled in Switzerland. It appears from the Welsh motto on the coat of arms that Daniel ROBERT's ancestor must have lived for awhile in Wales and received knighthood during that period of allegiance to the Welsh ruler. The descendants of Christopher ROBERT (founder of Robert College in Constantinople) claim the same coat of arms used by Rev. Pierre ROBERT's descendants, which indicates that Christopher, also, was from the line of Daniel ROBERT and Marie PETREMAND. In the main Library of NYC is a book written by a ROBERT descendant, and in the book claim is made that ROBERTs were found in Wales at a very early period, but the name was then spelled RHOBERT.

Pierre ROBERT, (son of Daniel and Marie), married Jeanne BRAYE (later called BRAYER), and they, with their 11-year-old son, Pierre Jr., emigrated with the colony of French Huguenots which landed at Beaufort, then moved further north and settled at Santee, St. James Parish, called French Santee to distinguish it from the English Santee, St. Stephens Parish, both of which settlements were on the south side of the Santee river, about sixty miles above Charleston, South Carolina USA.

Rev. Pierre ROBERT, son of Daniel and Marie ROBERT of Basle, Switzerland (French Huguenots) was born at St. Imier, Switzerland, in 1656, died at Santee, SC, 1715 and was buried in that locality, but the exact place of the grave is not known to the present generation. Married in 1674, Jeanne BRAYE, daughter of Jehu and Susanne BRAYE, of Basle, Switzerland. Jeanne was b. Basle, died at Santee, SC in 1717."

Child of Daniel Robert and Marie Petremand is:
+ 9 i. Pierre "Minister" Robert, born February 03, 1656 in Bern, Saint Imier, SWITZERLAND; died Abt. 1715 in French Santee Jamestown, Berkley County, South Carolina USA.

Generation No. 7


9. Pierre "Minister" Robert (Daniel6, Pierre5, Daniel4, Guillame "William Robert"3, Humbert2, Jehan1) was born February 03, 1656 in Bern, Saint Imier, SWITZERLAND, and died Abt. 1715 in French Santee Jamestown, Berkley County, South Carolina USA. He married Jeanne "Jean" Braye 1674 in Basle, Basleland, SWITZERLAND. She was born Abt. 1660 in Basle, Basleland, SWITZERLAND, and died 1717 in French Santee Jamestown, Berkley County, South Carolina USA.

Notes for Pierre "Minister" Robert:
Pierre Robert and Jeanne Brayne are my biological maternal 8th great grandparents. Their religion is listed as French Huguenot.

In the register at the old Huguenot Church in Basel, Switzerland is the record of his ordination on 19 Feb 1682, and also the baptism of his son Pierre, Jr in 1675. He came to SC in 1686 with his wife and son and a colony of French Huguenots which landed in Beaufort, SC then moved farther north to Santee, St. James Parish, called French Santee to distinguish it from English Santee, St. Stephen's Parish. These were on the south side of Santee, about 60 miles above Charleston, SC. From time of landing in 1686 until 1710, Pierre Robert was minister to the colony, and is supposed to have been the first Huguenot minister in the whole of South Carolina.

Pierre Robert is the son of Daniel Robert and wife Marie Petremand (b:c1645). Daniel and family first moved to France then to Switzerland about 1650 to escape religious persecution. Daniel Robert was born Abt. 1630 near Aberystwyth, Wales and died 1680 in Switzerland. He was the son of William Robert (b:c1598) and unknown wife of Wales.

Pierre Robert was born in Switzerland after his family fled from France. He was baptized and ordained a minister there as reflected in records of the Huguenot Church in Basle. He came to the North American Carolina's in 1686 with his wife and son.

1655 The Rev. Pierre Robert was baptized 30 Dec 1655.

1674 He graduated at St Etienne as a physican; attended the University of Basil, 1862 ordained on 19 Feb. 1682. He was a pastor of a Waldensian church in the Piedmont Valley in Switzerland. It is claimed that the Waldenses were the ancestors of the present day Baptists.

1886 He immigrated to South Carolinia and served as the first minister of the Huguenot ( later the Anglican, now Episcopal ) church at St. James Parish, SC, continuing his ministry until prior to 1 Jan. 1710. He was the first Huguenot minister in America. He was the first rector of St. James Anglican Church, although it is unclear whether he was ordained as such since there was no Anglican Bishop in America at the time.

Source: Narrative by William G. Wray 1997
Records in Basle, Switerland, verifies his ordination.
"Ce Dimanche, 19, Fevrier, 1682, le St. Pierre Robert de St. Imie a recul' imposition des mains."

Pierre Robert arrived in South Carolinis in 1686 with Captain Philip Gendron and settled in St. James Parish, on the Santee. He was the first French minister to preach in Carolinia and served until his death.

The first Huguenot church built in Charleston is still standing in a good state of preservation at this day (1946) even though it is more than two centuries old. On one of its inner walls may be seen a tablet placed there by some of the descendants of Pierre Robert with this inscription (Pasteur Pierre Robert - French Santee, So. Carolinia - 1656 - 1715." )

Notes for Jean "John" Robert:
Jean "John" Robert and Elizabeth Margaret Dixon are my biological maternal 7th great grandparents.

"John" is the English version of Jean.

He was a member of Pon Pon Chapel on the Pon Pon River in Colleton Co, SC. His religion was French Huguenot. He left a will located in the SC Archives : Charleston Wills, Vol. 8, pp 435-436. His known children are: Thomas, Ann, John, Mary and Abraham. His probable children are: Owen, Mariah and Eli.

The French Santee were in Berkley County in a town called Jamestown. Jamestown is known for its rich heritage as the first French Huguenot settlement on the Santee River beginning in 1685. Jamestown has enjoyed a colorful history. The town was established in 1705 several miles down river from its present location. The area now known as Jamestown was not incorporated until 1957. The town hall is located on S.C. Hwy. 41 in Jamestown. The French Huguenots were a peaceful, industrious people, serving God faithfully in a wilderness. They gained wealth by marketing indigo, rice and naval stores (turpentine and pitch). The region around the Jamestown settlement became what was known as French Santee. None of the original 13 colonies received a stronger infusion of Huguenot blood, faith and valor than South Carolina. (www.berkley.sc.us/~bcounty/Berkleymunicipalities.htm)
