Susanna  Gratto was a daughter of Jean George Gretteaux (b. 1717)of the Principaute de Montbeliard,

an independent principality situated northwest of Switzerland. Before it became a province of France in

1793 it was the only francophone Lutheran country in the world. In Europe these Protestants were known

as Huguenots. They were persecuted by the Catholics in neighbouring countries and many left the

principality for other lands. In the mid 18th century, the Government of Nova Scotia invited thousands of

these "Foreign Protestants" to settle in the province. George Gratteaux, his wife and 3 children were

among the hundreds from Montbeliard who traveled down the Rhine to Rotterdam where they boarded

ships for Nova Scotia in 1752. They sailed on the "Sally" bound for Lunenburg. 

The voyage was long and arduous. George's wife died at sea. He married shortly after landing in Nova

Scotia and fathered at least 4 more children, including James. In time the family name was changed to

Gratto. The family spoke French with a German brogue and early censuses list them as being of Swiss origin.

Today, the Grattos are honoured among the founding settlers of Lunenburg. Written by Rachel Falldien.
