My father and mother came from Ireland.
My father’s progenitors emigrated from France after the revocation of the Edicts of Nantes.” The first progenitor of whom he wrote was Robert (Andre) Pickon (sic), born ca 1644, who held an obscure diplomatic post at the court of Henry the IV of France. A Protestant of the Presbyterian faith, he presumably went to France from Scotland in 1661 during the time Charles II of England attempted to restore Catholicism in that country. Therefore, when the Edict of Nantes was revoked on October 1685, and the persecution of Protestants became intense, he and his French wife, Esther Jane (Benoit) Bonneau, fled to Scotland by way of La Rochelle, France. It is not known how long he stayed in Scotland, but at the end of the seventeenth century he was living in Limerick, Ireland, where he is believed to be buried. It is presumed that his sons were born in France. They were Andrew, John, Robert, and William.this is the genealogy of William and his descendants.
