1. Elias NAUDAIN1 was born in 1655 in France. He married Jahel ARNAUD in 1676. He died circa 1685 in England.   He was a pilot or shipmaster. They lived in La Tremblade, a little seaport on the west coast of France about thirty miles south of La Rochelle. They and all but about six families of La Tremblade were Huguenots. In 1681 Louis XIV seized their temple, made it a Roman Catholic church, and tried to force the citizens of La Tremblade to convert to catholicism. Instead, Elie (as the French spelled it) obtained from Charles II of England letters patent for naturalization, which were issued at Whitehall on 17 Nov 1681 and which described him as a ship's master. In early 1682 the family escaped by ship to Southampton and traveled to London, where they were naturalized on 8 Mar 1682. The last record of him was his attendance at a baptismal service in Threadneadle Street Church on 26 Apr 1685, and he is believed to have died that year or early in 1686.

Jahel ARNAUD2 came to America about 1686, probably within a year after the death of her first husband, Elias NAUDAIN, and was one of the first colonists of Narragansett. There she met Jacob RATIER and married him on 18 Mar 1689 in Narragansett Colony, Rhode Island.. They moved to New York City when the Narragansett Colony disbanded. They and Arnauld were naturalized by parliamentary act on 8 May 1697, and on 12 Nov 1697 Governor Fletcher of New York granted letters of denization to Arnauld NAUDAIN. She is believed to have lived with her son, Elias, in Delaware after Jacob died in late 1702 to have died there in 1720 or 1721. She was born in France. She died circa 1720 in Delaware.

After his father's death he immigrated to Rhode Island in about 1686 and moved with her and her second husband, Jacob RATIER, to New York City in 1691, when the Narragansett Colony disbanded. Apparently he became a mariner, as had his father and his stepfather. He was in Delaware by 1717 and he and Lydia probably moved there in 1715 or 1716, soon after their marriage. Elias bought and sold several tracts of land, and the deeds sometimes described his as a resident of Appoquinimink Hundred, Delaware and sometimes as of St. Georges Hundred, Delaware, and they usually described him as a mariner. In 1735 he acquired farmland known as the "old Naudain homestead," which was located near Taylor's Bridge in Appoquinimink Hundred, and which, except for the period 1816-1827, remained in his descendants' hands into the 20th Century. He has been described as "a man of high character and of prominence in the community" and sat in the first synod of the Presbyterian Church in America.

He was a man of singular excellence and purity of character. . . . He was a man of most courteous and agreeable manners, the natural outgrowth of a true and manly heart, a Christian and an elder in the Presbyterian Church. His name should long be cherished as one of the worthiest of the sons of the ancient Delaware State."

Son Corbit's account appears at pages 65-66 of Ruth Bennett's Naudain Family of Delaware: "In 1836, our father, who then lived in a little hipped roof house that stood nearly opposite to the entrance to the land that led down to Bishop Scott's house, put his family, consisting of himself, my mother and two children, into a wagon, that in after years and in the far West would have been called a 'Prairie Schooner', and started for what was then, indeed, the far West, Hamilton, Ohio, where mother had relatives. When they reached Hillsboro, fifty or sixty miles short of their destination, as the crow flies, mother's health became such that going farther seemed impossible. Father went to work at once on a farm for alan Trimble. Before the summer was over, he was persuaded to buy a little farm about seven miles away, where he went to work to hew himself out a home in what was literally and truly the big timber country of Southern Ohio. There we were all born, excepting the two born in Delaware, and there he ended his days. Things there were very primitive. I have reason to think he was much respected. While I was only eight years old when he passed away, still I can recollect that he had a class in Sunday School, was sometimes class leader and was a visitor to our Day School; hence, I conclude, a Director." He was a Whig and a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. She died two days after his death.

He also remembered that "Grandfather Naudain taught school in a log cabin called Shilo just across the San Saba River from Pecan Grove, in 1870 or 1871. A strange man one day rode up to the school and told the teacher that old Lucy Sucia had killed an Indian about daylight that morning about three miles away. The teacher turned out school and took us over to see the dead Indian. When we got there Sucia had drug the body to the river bank with oxen and had rolled him off of the bluff. The Indian had been killed at Lucy Sucia's house and had had nothing to shoot with. Later on we found his cave, his bow and arrow, and a part of a hog which he had eaten on."280,281,282

103. Kellie Loop, Rice, Tex., miscellaneous papers, pp. 25, 28. Miss Loop collected family data for decades, probably from the 1930s to the 1970s. Some of it is in her handwriting, and much of it appears to have been written by others and sent to her, but very little of it contains source attribution. Occasionally there are inconsistencies within the papers. The papers are now in the possession of Roger Bartlett, Austin, Tex., who assigned the page numbers for ease of reference.
