Veness Family

Rob Venus:

Hi Carole,

The story goes that Nicholas and his brothers Robert and Thomas rowed across in a little boat from Normandy and landed at Rye. They were Hugenots and fleeing persecution in France. So maybe there are still some records to be had in France if Hugenot records still exist.
I have Nicholas marrying Jane Wade (1562-1597), but two of Nicholas's children, Thomas and Henry seemed to have been born in 1600, after Jane's death. So, perhaps he married again to the Katherine you mentioned. I don't have a date of death for Nicholas, so he could have survived Jane by a few years.

Hope this helps,

Rob

Hi Heidi,

I think De Venoix became anglicised quite quickly after Nicholas and his brothers came to Rye.

Some of the descendants moved to the Deptford area of London with Isaac (1727-1803) around the 1760's and the name then to change to VENUS.

Which is my surname now!

Hi Stuart,

I too am sorry for butting into an ongoing conversation, but I am also stuck on Nicholas De Venoix (1562) married to Jane Wade and father of James (1594-1689)
and their other children - William, Alice, John, Charles, Ann and Thomas.
Any further information you can give would be appreciated. Best Regards, Rob
