Re: Durrett and Duret
There are several old written Durrett histories that make statements that aren't proven.The Louis Duret (1527-1586) named professor of the Royal College in 1568 which was attached to health service of the king of France ....then the jump to Francois Parrain de Durrette born 1680...is missing a few generations !!
There was another Duret, Jacque Vincent that said he was the son of Louis Duret, MD, but when he was born in 1762, his father had been dead 200 years.
There were at least 9 early Durrett's living in Virginia by the early 1700's.Another unproven statement was the "3 brothers".We have a group of over 45 Durrett descendants who are striving for truth and proofs.We have started DNA testing on Durrett men with proven lineage to distinguish the various lines.We also compare notes and share.If interested, please e-mail me.Dinah (Durrett) Beattie
