Appendices Appendix A. Descendants of Nicolas FRANÇOIS Note: It is far beyond the scope of this book to include a complete listing of all the FRANÇOIS RICHARD descendants in the Americas and Italy beginning circa 1700. The principal focus of this Descendants List is on the American side of the family from about 1700 until about 1900. While every attempt was made to be as inclusive and accurate as possible, the following list is undoubtedly incomplete.

First Generation As explained on page 9, the first documented reference to this FRANÇOIS/RICHARD family was in 1314. This list, however, begins with the oldest known direct ancestor of the FRANÇOIS/RICHARD family. 1. Nicolas FRANÇOIS Nicolas FRANÇOIS was a cutler in St. Sebastien Parish, Nancy, Lorraine, France. 1 Nicolas FRANÇOIS and Marie Ann ALLIÉ had the following children: *2 i. Sir François FRANÇOIS, born about 1680. 3 ii. Sir Antoine FRANÇOIS, born about 1680, Nancy, Lorraine, France * Although François and Antoine were definitely related, I have no proof that they were brothers. They might have been cousins. I have listed them as brothers due to the following facts: both François and Antoine married women named ALLIÉ (probably sisters); the names of the godparents of the children of François and Antoine demonstrate that they were very closely relate; and François signed as witness at Antoine’s wedding. In 1651, a François FRANÇOIS was mayor of the village of Vitrimont, just outside Lunéville. 2

I have included him in this family, though I don't know if it is correct. His baptism entry lists Sir François FRANÇOIS as his father, but I don't know for sure if THIS François FRANÇOIS is his father. Godfather was Mr. Joseph Seublet, marquis de Lenoncourt, colonel d'un regiment de cavalerie dans les troupes du Roi T.- C. Godmother was Miss Charlotte Gabrielle Seublet de Mercheberg, fille d'honneur de S.A.R. (Her Royal Highness) Madame la Chanoinesse d'Epinal.4 ii.

All family notes cite Goose Creek as the birthplace of John Charles Sr. I have not been able to find proof of this, but there’s no reason to believe he was born elsewhere. His baptismal entry from St. Augustine does not record his place of birth. His family was apparently living in Goose Creek when Francis I bought land there in 1793. [See Bibliography for S.C.
