This link states Jean Gaston d'Orléans, Duke of Valois (17 August 1650 – 10 August 1652) died in infancy.

So this Jean is not a son of Gaston Jean Baptiste. Disconnecting parents and changing his spouses name to Agnes Unknown.


Gaston, Jean "The Huguenot", "Jean Gaston was born in France,

probably about the year 1600.

Notes by Eugene Thomas 8/29/2017:!topic/soc.genealogy.medieval/TjHG...

Ines de Navarre, daughter of Philippe of Navarre (count of Evreux, king of Navarre), married Gaston Pheobus (1331-1391), count of Foix, in 1349; they became estranged after some years and she returned to live with her brother, then king of Navarre, and died in 1396. Their only son, Gaston de Foix, viscount of Bearn, was imprisoned and (accidentally, it is said) killed by his own father in 1381, as a result of an intrigue between Navarre and Foix; you can read about it in Jean Froissart's _Chronicles_, in the Penguin abridgement and translation, pp. 263-274. This younger Gaston was married but purportedly died childless. They are in Schwennicke's Europaische Stammtafeln 3:146.

It is possible that this genealogy was mixed with John Jean Gaston and Agnes. Agnes' last name is unknown in most links.

That is what I am changing Agnes' last name to unknown as she cannot be identified.

John Baptiste Gaston was born on c. 1600 in France to Unknown Gaston and Olive MNU Gaston. John Baptiste married Agnes Navarre on 1620 in Scotland and had 3 children: Alexander Gaston, John Gaston, and William Gaston. He passed away on 1689.

John Baptiste Gaston is my 9th great grandfather.

Notes from Re: Renti de Foix Posted by: Mark King Date: May 16, 2001 at 09:58:12 In Reply to: Re: Renti de Foix by Brett Ankrom 1302 of 2105

Gaston IV,count of Foix,viscount of Bearn,begat Gaston,prince of Viana, who begat Catherine de Foix who aside from being Queen of Navarre was also the countess of Foix and Viscountess of Bearn. She passed the titles along to her son Henri,who passed them along to his daughter, Jeanne D'Albret. Roger Bernard III,Count of Foix, married the heiress of Bearn around 1300 and their son became the count of Foix and viscount of Bearn. Renti de Foix was supposedly the father of the Duke of Orleans,according to an Irish preacher,Hugh Gaston, who was trying to recall family history.

Renti de Foix has no parents since he didn't exist. Ducs d'Orleans 1344: Philippe de Valois 1392-1407 Louis I d'Orleans 1407: Charles d'Orleans Louis II d'Orleans 1519-1536: Henri d'Angouleme 1536-1540: Charles d'Angouleme 1549-1550: Louis d'Angouleme 1550-1560: Charles IX d'Angouleme 1560-1566: Henri III d'Angouleme Nicolas de Bourbon 1626: Gaston d'Orleans 1661-1701: Philippe I d'Orleans 1701-1723: Philippe II d'Orleans 1723-1752: Louis d'Orleans 1752-1785: Louis-Philippe I d'Orleans 1785-1793: Louis-Philippe II d'Orleans 1793-1830: Louis-Philippe III d'Orleans 1830 Ferdinand-Philippe d'Orleans 1869 Philippe d'Orleans Francois d'OrleansJacques d'Orleans The title Duc of Orleans was typically given to second sons of the royal French family. The de Foixs were not successors to the duchy of Orleans.

Notes from Hugh Gaston,quoted in the Rosborough book, says the Duke of Navarre,Count de Renti of Foix,and his son the Duke of Orleans came to Scotland. Count de Renti of Foix dies and the duke married a Scottish woman and had either Jean Gaston or his sons. Of course Navarre was a Kingdom,not a duchy.

Notes from

The Bourbon Kings of France and Navarre were also the counts of Foix. The French Republic absorbed Navarre Basse, Foix,and Bearn. The annual gift that the Andorrans gave to the Count of Foix was picked up by Napolean and following presidents of France until 1993. Every year the Andorrans gave so many poultry,hams,cheeses etc. to the count.

Notes from

Hugh Gaston. One of nine children of William and Mary Gaston of Cloughwater,Ballymena, a preacher and author of a bible concordance, He first went to Pennsylvania,then to South Carolina where he lived with his brother John until his death around 1766,I think. He left his family behind in Antrim. This legend of a royal lineage was perpetuated by his family history that he gave his brothers and sisters. The Rosborough branch saved it and pulished it privately. In the 1930's someone published and copywrited a book: Reid,Gaston, Simonton...that repeated the Duke of Nemours nonsense. And a Ms. Goldwire who wrote one of the two pamphlets claimed to have seen a tree from a Gaston in Woodruff,S.C. that supported this assertion.

Re: Duke of Tuscany Posted by: Patrick Gaston Date: April 25, 2001 at 11:02:09 In Reply to: Re: Duke of Tuscany by Alex Kerr 1273 of 2105

......As for the Jean (Baptiste) Gaston de Foix de Tuscany d'Orleans mess, my best guess is that one of those early researchers discovered Gaston Phoebus (de Foix) in a history book. Phoebus was something of a renaissance man and wrote a number of treatises which have come down to us. He was married to Agnes de Navarre, also a literary type, whose most famous poem has to do with a chastity belt! But I digress ... Other researchers probably discovered Phoebus' collateral descendant, Gaston de Foix (1489-1512) the French boy general who died heroically at the siege of Ravenna during the Italian Wars. Over the years >both< of these Gastons became identified with ...our... Jean, which is why we have genealogies showing Jean the Huguenot married to a woman who died 200 years before he was born. There may have been a Jean Gaston who married a woman named Agnes in Scotland, but it was most certainly not Agnes of Navarre. With respect to those genealogies which purport to trace Jean the Huguenot back to Gaston de Foix (usually with a dotted line in place of the missing two or three generations), I have never seen any evidence in support of this link. Indeed, all the royal genealogical sites are in agreement that the Italian Thunderbolt, who died at age 22, had no children. Then there are those who claim that Jean the Huguenot was, in reality, Gaston d'Orleans, brother and rival of Louis XIII of France. The holes in this theory have been thoroughly examined in the threads mentioned above and I won't repeat those comments except to point out that Gaston d'Orleans died peacefully at his chateau in Blois in 1660, and his children are well-documented. One of his daughters did, indeed, marry into Italian nobility, which may be the source of the ...Duke of Tuscany... legends. But this was in the mid-to-late 1600s, when ...our... Gastons already were populating County Antrim. As Mitch Eickmann has pointed out, much of this confusion likely arose from the failure to recognize that ...Gaston... can be either a first name or a last name. In the case of Phoebus, de Foix and d'Orleans, it seems to have been a first name. In fact, according to statistics compiled by Gerard Gaston the >>family<< name of Gaston is comparatively rare, even in France. This could be a blessing in disguise, as it helps limit the search. Russ Perry has asked that we post our theories on the Gaston line of descent from the earliest known Gaston to Jean the Huguenot. I am unable to do so because I have no idea of Jean's ancestry, or whether ...Jean... even existed. According to French genealogist Frederic Deleuze, there was a prominent Gaston family in the town of Mauvezin at the turn of the 17th century, and this family had at least one member named Jean, who I believe, was sort of a town councillor. These Gastons probably were Huguenots, as Mauvezin was known as ...little Geneva... and the future Henri IV visited there frequently in his protestant days. So the Mauvezin clan looks promising, but there are other French Gaston families as well. On the Scottish side, we do have a flesh-and-blood George Gawstoun who suddenly appears in the Edinburgh parish registers in 1596 as a grown man. There are no Gastons (or any soundex equivalent) in the Scots records prior to this date. George is identified in the records as a ...cordwainer... or leatherworker. He had a number of children, notably William (born 1596) and Johne (born 1599). The mother of William and Johne was Helene Bennet. Evidently Helene died about 1610 and George subsequently married a Jeane Young, with whom he had more children. By 1610 the family name is being spelled Gastoun, and by 1680 it's Gaston. This information comes from the General Register Office of Scotland ( Now George may well be a red herring, but it's a fact that he and his family are the >only< Gastons/Gawstouns who are on record as being in the right place (Scotland) at the right time (1600). And there are those two sons, William and Johne -- no mention of an Alexander. And Johne was born in 1599, pretty close to ...our... Jean/John's traditional birthdate of 1600. Intriguing, to say the least, but certainly not definitive.

Re: Jean Gaston, ...The Huguenot... Posted by: Patrick Gaston Date: February 26, 2001 at 09:49:21 In Reply to: Re: Jean Gaston, ...The Huguenot... by Kay A. Burnside 1131 of 2172 I would be most interested in seeing any documentation confirming that Jean Gaston, reputed patriarch of the American Gastons, was in fact Gaston-Jean-Baptiste (1608-1660), brother of Louis XIII of France, Duke of Anjou and later of Orleans. This legend has persisted for a century or more, and I have seen no evidence to support it although that certainly doesn't mean it isn't true. The problem is that Gaston d'Orleans' life is extremely well documented -- including his marriages to Marie de Bourbon in 1626 and Marguerite of Lorraine in 1632. He died in his chateau at Blois, France, in 1660 and his memoirs were published posthumously in 1683. His known children (including illegitimate ones) are listed as:By Marie de Bourbon (first wife) -- 1. Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans, Duchesse de Montpensier (1627-1693) By Marie Porcher (mistress) -- 2. Marie batarde d'Orleans (born 1631) By Louise-Roger de La Marbeliere (mistress) -- 3. Jean Louis batarde d'Orleans (1638-1692) By Marguerite of Lorraine (second wife) -- 4. Marguerite Louise d'Orleans, Mademoiselle d'Orleans (1645-1721) 5. Elisabeth d'Orleans,Mademoiselle d'Alencon (1646-1696) 6. Francoise Madeleine d'Orleans, Mademoiselle de Valois (1648-1664) 7. Jean Gaston d'Orleans (1650-1652) 8. Marie Anne d'Orleans, Mademoiselle de Chartres (1652-1695) Many researchers, myself included, find it difficult to believe that Orleans had time, between the plots, schemes and intrigues for which he was infamous, to secretly slip into Scotland ca. 1630-40, dally with yet another woman and sire three undocumented sons. (He was, however, exiled to the Spanish Netherlands a couple of times.) But I want to keep an open mind as the ...Gaston d'Orleans... legend is so firmly enrshrined in Gaston lore. Anything tending to confirm the legend would be greatly appreciated. Patrick Gaston

Engraving of Gaston Gaston, Duke of Orléans (24 April 1608 – 2 February 1660), was the third son of King Henry IV of France and his wife Marie de' Medici. As a son of the king, he was born a Fils de France. He later acquired the title Duke of Orléans, by which he was generally known during his adulthood. As the eldest surviving brother of King Louis XIII, he was known at court by the traditional honorific Monsieur.

Contents 1Early life 2Marriages 3Later life 4Ancestors 5See also 6References Early life Gaston Jean Baptiste was born at the Palace of Fontainebleau on 24 April 1608 and at birth was given the title of Duke of Anjou. As a child, he was raised under the supervision of the royal governess Françoise de Montglat. In 1626, at the time of his marriage to the young Marie de Bourbon, Duchess of Montpensier, he received in appanage (with their respective titles) the duchies of Orléans[1] and Chartres, and the county of Blois.[2] He had nominal command of the army which besieged La Rochelle in 1628,[3][4] having already entered upon a course of political intrigue that would occupy the remainder of his life. He was the heir presumptive to the throne of France from the death of his brother Nicolas Henri in 1611 until the birth of his elder brother's first son in 1638.

On two occasions, he had to leave France for conspiring against the government of his brother and his Prime Minister Cardinal Richelieu. After waging an unsuccessful war in Languedoc leading to the Battle of Castelnaudary in 1632, he took refuge in Flanders. Reconciled with his brother Louis XIII, he plotted against Richelieu in 1635, fled from the country again, and then submitted to the King and the Cardinal.

(Video) The Notorious Kidnapping of John Paul Getty III

Soon afterwards, the same process repeated itself. Orléans conspired with the marquis de Cinq-Mars to attempt Richelieu's assassination, and then deserted his unfortunate accomplice (1642). In 1643, upon the death of Louis XIII, Gaston became Lieutenant-General of the Kingdom, and fought against Spain on the northern frontiers of France. He was created duc d'Alençon in 1646. During the wars of the Fronde (1648–1653), he demonstrated no particular loyalty to the crown and passed with great facility from one side to the other.

Marriages Gaston first married on 6 August 1626, at Nantes to Marie de Bourbon, Duchess of Montpensier, daughter and heiress of Henri de Bourbon, Duke of Montpensier.[5] They had a daughter, Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans, Duchess of Montpensier (29 May 1627 – 5 April 1693), called Mademoiselle de Montpensier, but later being best known as the Grande Mademoiselle.

Marie de Bourbon died six days after giving birth (4 June 1627), leaving her daughter the last of the line of the Montpensier line of the House of Bourbon.

While taking refuge from the wrath of Cardinal Richelieu in Lorraine, Gaston fell in love at first sight with Marguerite of Lorraine, the sister of Charles IV, Duke of Lorraine. But as France and Lorraine were then enemies, he was refused the king's permission to marry a sister of its duke. Nonetheless, Gaston fled again to Lorraine and, in a secret ceremony in the presence of her family at Nancy during the night of 2 – 3 January 1632, Gaston took the princess Marguerite as his wife. Because he had not obtained the prior permission of his elder brother, the king – one of his many acts of defiance – the couple could not appear at the French court and the marriage was kept secret.

But in November of that year, Henri II, Duke of Montmorency, on his way to the scaffold, betrayed Gaston, his former co-conspirator, and Louis XIII and Richelieu learnt of the elopement. The king had his brother's marriage declared null and void by the Parlement of Paris in September 1634 and, despite the protest of Pope Urban VIII,[6] the Assembly of the French clergy held in September 1635 that a prince du sang could enter matrimony only with permission of the king – consistent with French sovereignty and custom. Although Marguerite and Gaston had re-celebrated their marriage before the Archbishop of Malines, a French emissary persuaded the Pope not to protest the matter publicly, and Gaston formally accepted the annulment of his marriage. It was not until Louis XIII was on his deathbed in May 1643 that he accepted his brother's plea for forgiveness and authorized his marriage to Marguerite, whereupon the couple undertook nuptials for the third time in July 1643 before the Archbishop of Paris at Meudon, and the Duke and Duchess of Orléans were finally received at court.

By right of her marriage, Marguerite became known as Madame at court. After the death of his mother in 1642, Gaston was bequeathed the Luxembourg Palace, which became the couple's Parisian residence under the name Palais Orléans once they were restored to royal favour. They also sojourned at the Château de Blois, in the Loire Valley, where their first child was born in 1645.

Marguerite and Gaston d'Orléans had five children, of whom three daughters survived into adulthood:

Marguerite Louise d'Orléans (28 July 1645 – 17 September 1721) married Cosimo III de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany and had issue-but line died out. Élisabeth Marguerite d'Orléans (26 December 1646 – 17 March 1696) married Louis Joseph of Lorraine, Duke of Guise and had issue-but line died out. Françoise Madeleine d'Orléans (13 October 1648 – 14 January 1664) married Charles Emmanuel II, Duke of Savoy but died childless. Jean Gaston d'Orléans, Duke of Valois (17 August 1650 – 10 August 1652) died in infancy. Marie Anne d'Orléans (9 November 1652 – 17 August 1656) died in infancy. Gaston had an illegitimate daughter by Marie Porcher:[citation needed]

Marie bâtarde d'Orléans (1 January 1631, Paris – ?). He also had an illegitimate son by Louise-Roger de La Marbelière:

Later life Arms of Gaston dOrleans.svg After the death of Gaston's brother Louis XIII in 1643, his nephew Philippe, brother of the new king Louis XIV, became the new Monsieur. To differentiate the older Monsieur from the younger, Gaston, the uncle, was called Le Grand Monsieur and Philippe, the nephew, was called Le Petit Monsieur.

After the Fronde, Gaston was exiled by Cardinal Mazarin to Blois in 1652, and remained there until his death. All of his Orléans titles then went to his nephew, now the only Monsieur.
