MORAN (MORAND) Family

First Generation

1. HENRY1 MORAN (MORAND)(20527) birth date unknown.

He married ELIZABETH MARIE LAVEQUE.(20528) (Additional notes for ELIZABETH MARIE LAVEQUE(20529)) ELIZABETH became the mother of ANNE MORAND in La Rochelle, Charente-Maritime, Poitou-Charentes, France, 3 Aug 1646.(20530) In an introductory note on p 7 by the author, Samuel R Durand:

"In April 1970 and again in June 1971, I visited La Rochelle, France, and searched through many volumes of the original handwritten records of the Huguenot Church. These records are in the city record office. "In a volume entitled 'Registre des Baptemes fait au Temple de la Ville Neuve depuis l'Janvier 1660 jusqu'au 13 Juin 1666' on page 195, I found what appears to be a record of the baptism and birth of Dr. John Durand. It reads 'Le Dimanche 18 Janvier 1665 on ete Baptiser par Monsieru De Landcharacts, Jean, fils de Jean Durand et d'Anne Morand, - P. Gustave Gombauld, M: Francois Mater. Il es ne le 26 Decembre dernier.' No other record is to be found between the years 1650 and 1675 in the 'Registres de la Religion Pretendre Reformee de cette ville de La Rochelle' of any other baptism of a child by the name Jean Durand. "Since this baptismal record gives the names of Jean Durand's father and mother, I searched in earlier volumes for their baptismal records. The 'Registre de Baptismes Novembre 1632 jusque'an Juillet 1638' revealed, on page 78 for 1635, a baptismal record for 'Jehan fils de Jehan Durand et d'Elizabet Arnaud demeurant a St. Martin, Isle de Re, - P: Francis Jehan Antguum, marriane: M. Isobel Durand. Il est ne le 12 du mois aout 1635.' in this same register there is recorded, on page 44, the baptism on June 11, 1634, of another son named Jehan to these same parents who lived in St. Martin, a town on the Isle de Re, a large island just off the coast near La Rochelle, France. It would appear that this first son named Jehan died, and a second son, born August 12, 1635, and also named Jehan, lived and became the father of Dr. John Durand. No other Jean or Jehan Durands were found in the Huguenot church records between 1625 and 1645. "A possible record of the baptism and birth of Dr. John Durand's mother is recorded in Book N:38 entitled 'Baptemes Juillet 1643 jusqu'en Decembre 1648' on page 223, which reads in the records for 1646: 'Anne fille de Henry Moran et de Elizabeth Marie - P: Elie Giraudet, M: Anne Deny. Elle est nee le 3d aout dernier." In another record for another child, the names of her parents are recorded as "Henry Morand, marchant, et Elizabeth Marie Laveque.'"

HENRY became the father of ANNE MORAND in La Rochelle, Charente-Maritime, Poitou-Charentes, France, 3 Aug 1646.(20531) In an introductory note on p 7 by the author, Samuel R Durand:
