LAURENT BRUNO TROMBLY
From the book "A History of the Town of Chazy, Clinton
County, New York"
compiled by Nell J.B. Sullivan and David K.Martin. pub. 1970.
"...Although they are not listed here in the 1790 census, the Tromblys
are said to have settled in Chazy as early as 1786.* [Footnote says "It
seems more likely that they arrived here after 1790 rather than
before."} Laurent Bruno Trombly, the first of the name, was born at
Bay St. Paulnear Quebec on August 15th 1735. He served in the American Army
during the Revolution and was a pensioner and a recipient of bounty land
for his services. After the war, he returned to Canada and later, with
his wife and children, paddled in a canoe up the Richelieu River and
Lake Champlain as far as Chazy. He settled on a little point just south
of the site of Sax's stone store at the Landing, where he built a one
room log cabin. As long ago as 1898 there was no trace left of this
house. The assessment of 1798 credits him with 100 acres and a log house
next to Chandonet. The two Framboise families and Ayott were also his
neighbors. During the Indian Summer season there were also Indians who
camped on Wool's Point, Robarge's Point, and where Sam Rice now lives.
Bruno Trombly made the acquaintance of the Indians and hunted and fished
with them for many years. He died in Chazy in 1821. He had at least 11
children: John Baptist baptized August 13th 1776, Louis born January
1778, Olive baptized December 31st 1778, Bruno baptized June 14th 1779,
Francis baptized August 27th 1780, Jerome born 1782, Andrew Bruno born
1783, George born c. 1784, Antoine baptized September 12th 1784,
Lousette born 1788 and Joseph born 1789. Several of his sons served
during the War of 1812."
JOHN BAPTIST TROMBLY married in 1803 Jane Marney, daughter of
Lewis Marney of Rouses Point, where they lived for two years before returning to Chazy. At Chazy he built a two room log cabin and about 1827 a stone house next to it. The stone house was a refuge for many of the defeated Canadian soldiers during the Patroit's War of 1837. John B. Trombly died on December 5th 1848. His children were: Antoine, Bruno, Louis, Josette, Lawrence, Amelia, Adeline, Mary, Julia, Jacob, and Edward. Trombly Bay was named for this family.
