Marte (Martain) Sublett was a relation of a Huguenot emigrant (1540-1790).

Marte Martain is shown in various descendent reports for the Sublett family. Her parents are considered the immigrant generation. Apparently records have been found showing Marte to have been christened 21 JAN 1682, Sedan, Ardennes, France. The specific reference seems not to be named.

Sublett family research reports show that she married Pierre Louis Soblet their marriage occurring 1714 - 1722 in Henrico County, Virginia. Her death and burial is estimated 1745 in Cumberland Co. VA.

Children born to Marte and Pierre Louis Sublett include their son Benjamin Sublett

Martha was mentioned on a memorial with a death date of 1755.[1]


Sublett family reports don't show Marte's mother as Marie Archambeau. She isn't shown with brothers or sisters. The reports show Jean Martain as her father.

The death of Marte's father is sometimes given 1739 Goochland Co. VA. There is a will 1739 Goochland Co. VA for John Martin. It is easy for Jean to become John and the surviving wife Martha is an easy Americanization as well. But, there is no child, Marte or Martha named in the 1739 will. Therefore children that are mentioned in the will must be allocated to a different John Martin - not to be merged in WikiTree. Besides the lack of Marte, the "different" John Martin can be distinguished because he was not married to Marie Archambeau.
