Jacques or Jacob caudebec was an early settler in the Minisink Valley. The "Minisink Valley or Minisink country" consists of the valley of the Neversink, west of the Shawangunk Mountains, and the Delaware valley, as far as the Delaware Water Gap. The first settlements of which authentic knowledge can be ascertained were made about 1690, at what was later called the Upper Neighborhood, near Cuddebackville. A few years later more families came, and the settlements stretched further down the Neversink valley, to the junction with the Delaware; in later years the valley between Huguenot and Port Jervis was known as the Lower Neighborhood. The Neversink river was then called the Machackemeck, and the valley between Cuddebackville and Port Jervis was often spoken of as Peenpack. The earliest Patents in this neighborhood were the Waghaghkemeck* Patent, Oct. 14, 1697; the Minisink Patent, Aug, 28, 1704, which confirmed the Indian deed of 1702, and several other patents of less importance, which need not be enumerated here. The Waghaghkemeck* Patent was granted to Jacob Cuddeback, Thomas Swartwout, Anthony Swartwout, Bernardus Swartwout, Jan Tys, Peter Guimar and David Jamison. The settlers in the Minisink valley were Dutch,
French Huguenots and English. .
Jacques Caudebec was born ca. 1664, in Pays de Caux, Haute-Normandie, France. He was baptized on June 1, 1664 in Bolbec, Pays de Caux (Land of Chalk), Upper-Normandy, France. Baptism took place at the Lintot Temple, Pays de Caux, Normandy, approximately 4 miles to the east of Bolbec .

He resided in the region Pays de Caux, Haute-Normandy in northern France, on the Bolbec from May 31 1664 to 1685, or, possibly in Caudebec-les-Elbuef a textile manufacturing town in the department of Seine-Inf Crieure, .
There are two communes known as "Caudebec". Caudebec-en-Caux and "Caudebec-les-Elbuef", Seine-inf-Crieure, which is located on the south side of the Seine, about 40 miles south east of Bolbec and Caudebec-en-Caux. This commune is not in the Pays de Caux (the chalk plateau north of the Seine River), but rather in Pays de Bray (the marsh land located south of the Seine River). Seine-inf-Creure was a major textile area until the emigration of the Huguenots after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, on October 22, 1685, by Louis XIV, the grandson of Henry IV. This drove an exodus of Protestants, and increased the hostility of Protestant nations bordering France. Just a few days into the following year, on 17 January 1686, King Louis XIV proudly announced that from a population of nearly 900,000 Huguenots only 1000 or so remained living France. He was quite pleased until a severe dent in the country’s income was explained to him. Holland and England began exporting Hats to France.
Lintot Temple: Lintot is a small commune is located in the Pays de Caux, between Bolbec and Caudebec-en-Caux; approximately 4 miles from Bolbec and 7 miles from Caudebec-en-Caux. This is the site of the Huguenot Protestant Temple. Dès 1578, le culte protestant est célébré à Lintot par le pasteur Vallandry, puis par les pasteurs du temple de Mont-Criquet. Caudebec-en-Caux was the site of a catholic cathederal.
French Heritage monument to Lintot...Temple closed,
Description: Ground floor masonry, floor in wood shingles or coated pan. Seating an alternating brick and Flint barn. Outbuildings in timber. Charretterie frame. In 1578 the protestant worship is celebrated in Lintot by Pastor Vallandry, and then by the pastors of the Montrcriquet temple. In 1595 the Hague, sieur de the Moissonniere stone creates a sermon in his mansion. In 1623 Lintot protestants buy 200 pounds of sieur tare a barn, that they carry on a piece of land given by the sieur de Lintot, to build a sermon in lieu of his mansion. In 1639, the Council banned the temple of Montrcriquet, destroyed in 1659. Is then built the barn a temple, called the magnificent, despite opposition from the parish priest remonstrant is located at 54 toises of the Church and its cemetery and that the said temple voice disturb the divine office. A decision of the Parliament of Normandy from 10 March 1681 condemns the temple door is walled, but the building is not destroyed. It is transformed in 1702 (date range) in logis de farm, accompanied by agricultural buildings. Carousel barn is built in the middle of the 19th century.
The surname "Cuddebec" suggests that Jacques' ancestor was born either in the tiny fortified commune Cuddebec-en-Caux, which is located about 12 miles to the southeast of Bolbec on the Seine River or possibly "Caudebec-les-Elbuef" about located 40 miles to the southeast.. Bolbec was a woolen textile center with mills and weaving houses, and Caudebec-en-Caux, at the time of the Huguenots was the felt hat center of France. Today Caudebec-en-Caux produce lace in a cottage industry, and lives off tourism. Bolbec, Caudebec-en-Caux and Caudebec-les-Elbuef were textile centers populated by Huguenot textile workers, until the exodus to Holland commencing in the 1600s. After the exodus the Textile industry of northern France collapsed.
