                         Lord Steward over the household of Charles,

               Antoine DuBois, b. ca. 1560, became the Kings' Councilor
                               and Royal Ambassador to the Netherlands.
                Pierre (Peter) DuBois, b. ca. 1590/1600

The above Pierre (Peter) DuBose, b. ca. 1590/1600 married ca. 1620 Frances
Olliver de Lienville (or Lenville), from one of the old Baronial families in
Normandy. The record shows 3 sons of this couple: John, Louis, and Chretian. Of
these our Ancestor is Louis DuBose, b. ca. 1630 and who m. ca. 1650/55 Anne.
These appear on the "List of French and Swiss Refuguees in the Province of
Carolina who wish to be Naturalized English" in 1695-1696, as parents of Isaac
DuBose who had emigrated to Carolina about 1685/6 with his wife Suzanne
Couillandeau DuBose. Isaac listed himself as from Dieppe, Normandy. Since
history records Normandy as a stronghold of the Huguenots and feeling ran high,
it is easy to understand why this family left France and came to the new
country. It is also easy to understand why so many of the DuBose family took
such an active part in the American Revolutionary War, later. They were the
grandchildren of the emigrant. Isaac DuBose was b. ca. 1660, married ca. 1680 to
Suzanne Couillandeau and had eight children: ANTOINE; ELIZABETH; ISAAC; DANIEL;

The above Louis DuBose, son of Pierre DuBosc, is not to be confused with the
Louis DuBois, son of Chretien DuBois of Wicres, hamlet La Baree, near Lille, in
Flanders who, with his wife Catherine emigrated to New York, and settled in
Kingston for a time, before moving to New Paltz, N. Y., when they received that
land Grant. That is a different family, though probably related. See "Huguenot
Emigration to America" by Baird, Vol. 1, p. 87 for that line. Also in same Vol.
1, Chapter 7, p. 80, Note 2, shows Louis and Anne, parents of Isaac DuBose. See
also "History of the DuBose Family" by Israel J. McKenzie.

It is believed that the family names of DuBois, DuBose, Dubusk, DuBosk etc.,
were all originally DuBois of early origin, in France. Various spellings occur
in all records of the State of South Carolina, and Georgia. In the early history
of France, all of the sons of one man may bear a different name entirely. Also
if he owned land and sold it, the name went with it. Confusion in names has made
the search in very early records difficult, incomplete, and uncertain. Since the
earliest records in South Carolina show "Dubose" it is used herein throughout.
