Anne was born in 1675. Anne Soblet ... She passed away in 1723. [1]

The Soblet family fled France in 1686 because of Huguenot persecution. They first sought refuge in Protestant Germany, later in Holland, then England, before setting sail for America in 1700.

Anne arrived in Jameston, Virginia in October 1700 on the Peter and Anthony with her mother and two other siblings. Her father and two siblings had arrived earlier on July 12, 1700, on the first of four ships carrying Huguenot refugees, the Mary and Ann. [2]

Anne was the second wife of Dr. Pierre Chastain (who was also a Huguenot refugee, arriving with Anne's father in Virginia on the Mary and Ann).
