Pierre was a Huguenot minister, raising his daughter the same. He was either serving his religion in Ste. Mere Eglise or Ste. Marie du Mont. The two are less than 10 miles apart near the northern coast of Normandy in the Manche Department (or district).
He is said to have fled France after St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre in 1570. As you will hear in attached video,"Huguenots and the French Reformation," in Paris alone over 25,000 Huguenots were murdered by Catholics.
