Christian Ladner was an integral part of the La Garenne Clan on Mississippi’s Gulf Coast, but is not known to have Romani origin. He arrived as a convicted tobacco smuggler, age 20, from Switzerland aboard the Marie in 1719; see Conrad, First Families, 1:53, for the Marie’s roll. Ladner’s wife is said to have been Marie Barbe Bounel, about whom nothing is known. His son Nicolas (sometimes called Nicolas Christianne) married the one-quarter Amerindian daughter of the French and Panis Marguerite Boudreau at Pascagoula. Offspring of both marriages would intermarry extensively with the La Garenne Clan. For the identity of Ladner’s wife, see Our Lady Parish (Mobile), Baptismal Book 1:51, “Letdener.” For the son’s wife, see Brother Jerome LePré, “Origin of Marianne St. Martin Paquet Ladner,” Mississippi Coast Historical Society [Journal] 26 (October 1990): 86– 99.
