Since I found that Samuel Lafon reference in 1758 in Lunenburg Co., Virginia, I checked the International IGI.I was very interested to find the following information:
SAMUELLE LE FIN christened 07 Sept 1600 Threadneedle Street, French Huguenot, London, England. Son of JERY LE FIN.
Now I know that the "Lafon" Huguenots sometimes spelled their name (or it was misspelled) on French Huguenot church records as "Le Fin" or "La Fin", etc.
Hmmm......This is just a wild thought, but......Could "JERY LE FIN" be "JERY LAFON or LAFOON?"Could his actual name be JEREMIAH LAFON/LAFOON?Nathaniel Laf(f)oon named a son "JEREMIAH LAFFOON".Could this be where the name comes from?????Could Jery Le Fin be the father of Samuel, Nathaniel, and Matthew?Just throwing this out there for thought.
