Notes for Jacque Hennot
Jacques de Hennot; married Jeanne Doyé, daughter of Antoine Doyé, Bailiff and Receiver of Gommegines, and Rose Dugardin, daughter of Alard Dugardin and Jeanne Roger.  Jacques was mentioned as a son of the late Jehan Henne and Isabel Guaille, in a 19 March 1549 deed of sale filed in the Archives of Valenciennes.  He was alderman of Valenciennes in 1560, 1561, 1566, and Treize Homme in 1577 ("Magistrates of the City of Valenciennes," MSS, 550-767).
Jacques Hennot, late lieutenant of the military guard of Valenciennes, surrendered twice at Tournai, the first time with Guy de Bres, (the celebrated Huguenot preacher executed there in 1567), the second time after the death of the latter.  He was then taken under guard toward Lisle, but escaped through the intervention of a band of Huguenot horsemen, after which escape all trace of him was lost by the authorities.  He was pursued by order of Theodore Cresia, commandant of the Italian Cavalry under the Duke of Alva, who gave instructions to capture the body of Jacques Hennot wherever he might be found, promising an honorable sum to any one who should deliver him dead, or a double amount if the said Hennot should be delivered alive.  Record of those orders are found in the "Confiscations et ordonnances concernant les troubles survenus a la fin du VXI Siècle" in the Royal Archives at Brussells, where also is found the decree confiscating all the lands and goods of Jacques Hennot, and branding him as an outlaw.
The next trace of him is in the documents of the British Museum relating to the religious wars of Flanders. There among the names of refugees is found that of Jacques Hennot, late lieutenant of the military guard at Valenciennes.  This Jacques Hennot settled in an English province about 1598.
