      Hi....copied your e-mail down and couldn't add a post em so thought I'd write you direct

      Bartholomew Durrett, I descend from this man. He was either born in France or England.

      You show him the son of John

      A general concensus seems to believe that Paul Parrain de Duret (born in France) was the father of Francis Parrain de Duret (who both naturalized in England in 1702). and his other children were Bartholomew, John, William, or Richard. If Paul was the father of Francis and Francis had to be 21 to naturalize, then he would have been born around 1681 and Paul ca 1660. Paul and Francis were Huguenots that fled France and went to England. It has been rumored that 3 brothers came to America and all descendants came from them, but I have my doubts that there weren't more of them.

      1711 Paul Duuerratt paid 1 titheable (per Va Mag 11k, pg 269-304) and he is also listed as being owed for one days labor. in 1712 "mde duuerrat (his or her) negro is listed on the tithables for the year 1712, the handwriting was so bad that it wasn't clear if it was Paul or his wife. This was either listed in Manakintown records of King William Parish Vestry Books as reported in the Va Magazine.

      Hope I've shed some light on the subject. (hard to shed light without the whole picture)

      There were several Francis, and at least 3 Richards, 2 Johns, but only 1 Bartholomew.

      There is definately a relationship between Bart and John, but I don't think it was father/son.
      John and his wife Mary dec 1739 ack deeds of lease and release to Barthw Durratt (caroline order book). 1737/38 Bart purchased 268 A in Hanover on Priddy's Creek, Richard his son purchased July 1738 next to Bart. So if he had a son that was at least 21 in 1738 then he was married in 1716 (ca) and he would have been born around 1696 (likely born in England)

      I have several Bartholomew descendants in a group trying to pinpoint early records and records in England at the french churchs. Bottom line is we just don't know exactly! but we do think Bartholomew and Francis were brothers and sons of Paul.

      clear as mud isn't it!
