Possibilities (Settlers of Highgate)

"Elizabeth's" husband, John Morel probably immigrated into Highgate in 1733 before he was 7 years old. Highgate was a Georgian French settlement, Georgia was predominantly protestant so they'd most likely be Huguenots [6].
Paulina Rouviere. Her father was a sock weaver. Her mother married Steven Montford when her father died. [1]
Paulina's mother married Steven Montfort who settled in Highgate for about 5 years and together they had 3 children there. [2]
Thomas Stammer, an Improver, settled in Highgate 1737 with his wife and child. [3]
  • Elizabeth Landry: my favorite. Her family were Settlers in Highgate 1733. Her father, James was a gardiner (historian), and described as highly industrious. [4]


Surname Landry [7]: Common in Quebec

Fun with DNA

The expectation would be for the female or wife to match the trail (not necessarily me personally) of my Haplogroup H. This is getting too far back for autosomal connections, but a promising candidate would not only be in Haplogroup H, but would have a trail leading to a Global Family connection to this branch of my family. The stronger the genealogists creating those profiles, the stronger the trail.

Researched James Landry Highgate on internet

Acadian Abraham Landry (abt 1648 - 1740) with a wikitree profile.
His wife was Marie Guilbeau (abt 1683 - 1723) and she had two descendants with mtDNA
1) Roland Arsenault Haplogroup H4. [5] A distant connection with a Landry that settled in Highgate makes this a viable connection. The connection is through the Wises whose son married McElveen and a Morel's direct descendant.
