||Bef 10 Oct 1655
- A younger son, became a Huguenot, and was deprived of his nobility in consequence. His elder brother, Louis, who remained a Catholic, is designated as Seigneur de Fontaines, lieutenant-general of the Armies of the King. He was in 1663 made Marquis de Giuvi.
Chretien du Bois was dead on October 10, 1655, when his son Louis was married at Mannheim. Chretien also had a daughter Anne (Wicres baptismal record). Chretien settled on lands at Wicres about 10 miles southwest of Lille where his farm is still pointed out. He was probably born about 1590. He is described as a gentleman of the family of du Bois, Seigneurs de Beaufermez and de Bourse.
The Rev. W. Twyman Williams, Minister of the College Church, Hampden-Sydney, Virginia, suggested as a result of his research that CHRETIEN possibly had at least two additional sons, possibly ANTOINE and ISAAC, who were older than the children of whom the DBFA has definite records.
From FTM: parents of Chretian are Wallerand DuBois (b abt 1560, d. 1600-1651) of Wicres France, and Madeleine De Croix (b. abt. 1560, d. 1599-1655) m. 1583 in Wicres France.
From FTM: child 5 is Antoine, M, b. 1616-1641
