  • Notes 
    • "Francois de Marets, or de Mares, as his name appears, was born about the year 1555. At Norwich he was a Lieutenant of the Walloon Militia,a body to which the colonists were entitled. He probably lived the last years of his life at London, where most of his children are found registered in the French Church.
      Francois de Mares married twice. His first wife, Elisabeth Herbecq, died between 1601 and 1604. On December 24, 1604, he remarried at Norwich with Phebe du Rieu.
      Of the first marriage there were five, of the second, six children.Only the last child of the first and all the children of the second marriage were baptized in the Walloon Church of Norwich.
      On September 10, 1605, Francois de Mares transferred for himself and for his minor children, named Jacques, Jean, Elisabeth, Anna and Esther, represented by their guardians, Nicolas De Mares and Philip Carlier, to Jean de Mares, son of Nicolas, residing in the Land of Cambray, the fief of Cauroit, near Cambray, inherited by him from hi sfather, Jacques de Mares, in 1604. Witnesses to this transaction were Nicolas de Mares and Louis de Mares, brothers." Early Genealogical Record, pg. xx, para.'s 7-9.
