Joe,I believe the part of our lineage that you are looking fo is that of:
Mathieu Jacques Noblett b.1628 d.1653
m(1648) Maria le Clerce
1. Marie Noblett b.1648 d. 1698, expelled from France, accused of Treason
2. Gabrielle Noblett b.1649 d.1703, migrated to England
m(1669) Catherine Bertrand, one son - Peter
Peter Noblett b.1671 d.1719, removed to Ireland 1694
m(1698) Marie Godfrey, 4 children
*note: Irish so-journ of Peter Noblett constituted a period of less than 30 years before his 4 sons migrated to English Colonies in America.During that brief period on the Emerald Isle, in NO WAY labels the Noblitt family forebears as being Irishmen.The ancestral heritage of their Norman-French lineage remained unbroken during an extended period of 650 years.
These are the four sons of Dublin, Ireland who joined with a group of Quakers destined for America.Sailing aboard the ship, Guerrier, they disbarked at Grandy's Point located on Cape May below Philadelphia.Their arrival date was recorded as Dec. 1721.(see Pennyslvania Magazine of History, XVI (1791).
Peter Noblett's 4 sons:
John Noblett b.1699, d.1748, m(1732) Anne Brereton
Richard Noblett b.1701, d.1764, m(1724) Jane Holden
Francis Noblett b.1703 d.? - no other data given on Francis
William Noblit b.1704 d.1777, m(1736) Mary Parkes
(apparently William is the one who changed the spelling to Noblit)
William was the youngest brother migrating to America.
He & Mary Parkes had 5 surviving children
Joseph b.1736, d.1777, French/Indian War Veteran
John b.1737, d.1783, m(1760) Eliz___, 4 children
Anne - no data
Margaret - no data
William b.1742, d.1817, never married
Samuel b.1744, d.1832, Revolutionary War Veteran
Let me know if the above helps.
