Re: The LOUISONS - part 1

Hi Merle,

No I am not a Historian. Just a Grenadian who wants to know more about how our nation and people developed. If I had the time of a Historian, I would bring all our history to everyday Grenadians who don’t have the resources to spend on knowing who we are. I don’t know about the surname Millette. If I had to guess, I would say it is not French. But that does not mean much when you look into your heritage in Grenada. After the defeat of Fedon, many Grenadians who had French associated surnames, did their best to rid themselves of them. It was a serious liability if you wanted to enjoy basic liberties enjoyed by Grenadians with non-French or French Creole sounding names. Unless you were a La Grenade. The women married men who carried surnames from the British Isles as much as they could – especially those a little better off, and who showed unquestionable loyalty to the British after their family, husbands, and sons, were defeated or executed.

But I will keep an eye on this name as I go about hunting! ;-)
