Re: Joachim Philip - Family man and Rebel with a cause.

Thank you Peter St. Paul for the scans of historical documents.

The Clozier family gained notoriety for having children with their female slaves, not that other white planters weren't doing it but the amount the Clozier (white) brothers fathered was scandalous. They were closely related to other plantation families of French origin such as Passee, Dafaur and Dumont.
It appeared that some French families gave their sons differed surnames
look at Sir Pierre Francois Laurent and his brother Jean Francois Laurent-Haurealt or, Louis Lejeune and his brother Louis Julien Lejeune-Dugue.

Chantimelle in St. Patrick is named after Louis Francois Clozier de Chantimelle -he owned Chantimelle Estate.

Francois Charles Marie Clozier de St. Marie was the son of Philippe Charles Clozier and nephew of Charles Francois Clozier D'arcueil.

Could you email me please.
