Title: Re: Perdue Family Pedigree (sic) Perdew
Post by: Mike Canter on March 11, 2005, 11:15:16 AM
Perdew Family History
(This is my Gram Canter?s family)

The name Perdew, (which is also spelled Perdue, Perdieu, Purdue, Pardoe etc, etc.) is first seen in recorded entries in 1237 in England. However, as most European names, it is highly likely that the name originated with the Norsemen as did most of the other members of the white race. The name is associated with the family who invented the ?bell? and the design ?fleur de lis?. It was also associated with the people who ?had a right to bear arms?.

There are are at least two theories as to how the Perdue family arrived here in the USA..and I will tell you both. First let me say this??there are those who say the Perdues were among the first Hugenots and those who say there were NO Hugenots in the Perdue line?I?ll let you decide. I think it is obvious to all that the name as spelled Perdieu?is of French origin?by way of the Norsemen of  very early times. As in a lot of cases families moved from the mainland of Europe to the British Isles for tolerance of their beliefs and then on to America for what they thought would be complete freedom to do as they please. HA !!

The first version is the romantic one and probably close to the truth until the family arrives in England . The second version is not so glamorous, but is probably what happens after the England arrival.

Version I

Pierre Perdeux ( born circa 1583 ) was a native of Angers of Anjou and for many years served as advocate to the Parliament of Paris, Master of request to the Duke of Anjou, and chief magistrate of the Criminal Court of Angers.
It is believed in this version that the Perdues were Hugenots and they left France for England and Ireland before coming to America.
An elaborate manuscript compiled and emblazoned in the College of Arms containing ? Sundrie Ancient Remembrance of Arms, Genealogies, and other notes of Gentility belonging to the worshipful name and families of surname of Perduex, and that they were of like noble lineage or offspring of ? The Dutchy of Normandy?.
Pierre married Anne de Jardins ( born 1585) and they had offspring of
Rene Perdeux in 1610
Henri Perdeux in 1625
Henri was the Bell (as in ding-dong) Founder and was the progenitor of the Perdue family in America.
 He married Marie Loisson, herself a descendant of a noble French family.
With a desire to worship according to the faith of the Hugenots, he left France leaving behind considerable wealth and property, like a chateau in the country, and a mansion in what is now called Rue 3t, Honore in Paris.
He arrived in Bristol, England in 1655 and became associated with the Indies Company.
His first child , Dean was born 9/6/1656. In 1657 Henri was appointed Residant factor for the Indies Company for Martinique and moved there on the brig boat, Thistle with Capt. William Stackpool at the helm.
At Fort de France, Martinique, his 2nd son Rene was born 6/12/1658 and then a daughter, Marie 11/7/1660.
Now here is the hole in this theory?..No one knows how or why Henri moved to Maryland?..BUT it does NOT mean it didn?t happen.
SO?in Worcester, Maryland Henri?s last child, John William Perdeux, Sr. is born in 1673.
Thus starts the chain of Perdues that match the other theory from this point forward. The big difference is that this theory puts John as a person of wealth and standards immediately upon arriving. The other is quite different posing him as illiterate and an indentured servant. The truth is probably somewhere in-between.

Version Two

The first Perdieu to come to the USA was John Perdieu and most research points to him being transported here by Edmund Jennings from England along with many others as indentured servants in Maryland/Virginia?circa 1690.
This John Perdieu could not read nor write, but made sure his offspring was educated and that paid off for his descendants. His children and grandchildren became rather large property holders and owned many slaves in Henrico, Chesterfield, Giles counties of Va. and much later in Franklin County, Virginia.


From this point forward?both sides pretty much agree that the following is accurate and true to their best recollection and records.

John Perdieu fathered 3 children with Sarah Burke, they were William Uriah Sr, George and John Jr.

William Uriah Perdue, Sr married Mary Hatchet and fathered William Uriah, Jr, four unknown daughters,  Ezekiel, James, and Francis.

William Uriah Jr. married  Edith Powell and fathered at least 13 children who are listed in the Perdew Tree  a little later. He settled in the far west part of Henrico County near Skinquarteron land adjacent to his father. He and a group of settlers then migrated through Wood Gap into Floyd County and on down the Little and New Rivers, settling on Wolf Creek about 1750. He owned the mill on Mill Creek in what is now the Narrows about 1755-1760.
During the Indian uprising of 1774, many settlers went to the Black River settlement in Franklin County, Va., but William Jr. stayed and served in the Montgomery County Militia during the Revolutionary War under the command of Captain John Taylor. Evidence exists that after 1785, William left Wolf Creek after a run-in with George Pearis and built a mill on the Mill branch of Bluestone Creek.
Among his 13 children was the first?Meshack born about 1750.
Meshack  , was to become a very wealthy man and fathered at least 12 children?.one wife is unknown..the one we know of is Eleanor Nellie Dillon born about 1760. Meshack served with his father, William, during the Indian uprising of 1774. His huge family farm was located south of the Blackwater River in Franklin County, Va.  Meshack was the owner of approximately 40 slaves, a lumber mill, a gristmill, and two liquor stills .There is much more about this colorful Perdue man in the bios in the big Canter History book.

After this there is not much history available. Most of the Perdues remained in Franklin County for a long time. Quite a number of the offspring did move southward into most of the deeper southern states.
Just a few decided to move north into what is now W.Va. Meshack?s son Zachariah started the move into southern W.Va and then Thomas, son of Zachariah move on into Boone County, where these families flourished as farmers and eventually miners, Isaac Sr, was one of Thomas?s children and he fathered Isaac Jr.

 Isaac Jr first married  Arminta Green and they had three children?..Lola 1895,  Letha 1897 ( Gram Canter)  and Elbert 1898. It appears as though Arminta passed away shortly after Elbert?s birth and Isaac Jr  re-married to Margaret Jane Estep and they had one child, Eliza.

This family stayed in Boone county until sometime after 1910.

In 1920 the family shows up in Kanawha County, Dunbar, W.Va?.minus Lola and Letha. We know that Letha married at 17 to Lester Canter somewhere near Cabin Creek which is in Kanawha County and it is believed that Lola married Evermont Ferrell. Eliza married an A. Garrett in Dunbar in Kanawha County. We understand that Letha was very close to Eliza and eventually Eliza moved to Florida. Elbert is shown in 1920  as married and a female, Ora, is living with them as a daughter-in-law and she is only 15. This must be one of the times that Elbert got into a fix. He probably got this young girl pregnant. I remember Gram saying that Elbert once asked her if he could come to stay with her for a he had a few problems( she said NO). It is said that Elbert ALWAYS had a few problems.

Hello, My name is Veronica Perdue. I was reseraching my name and found your story on this website and was very interested. I don't know much about my family history, I only know of my grandparent being the only Perdue's. I don't know my great grandparents they died when I was little. Anyways my grandfather's name is Albert Perdue in Chicago,Ill. I don't know his exact age but he's in his 70's maybe 60's? He has 3 sons and 1 daughter all having children of their own. I don't know anything else about him, he really doesn't like talking about the past. I really would like to know about my family history.

Isaac Perdue is the brother of James Perdue. James Perdue married the widow of Joseph Howard (Polly) and brother Isaac married Polly's daughter Luraine Howard. The War of 1812 pension papers filed for James' pension by his fourth wife Rebecca indicate that James was born in Maryland and raised in North Carolina. He and Isaac went to Georgia about 1800. It is known that a James Perdue and wife Sarah (born 1762 in Maryland) went to Guilford County, North Carolina and it is my speculation that this James and Sarah were parents of James and Isaac--no proof at this point. Further informed guess would indicate that this older James was one of the three James Perdues on the Maryland 1783 tax rolls for Worcester County. If this turns out to be correct then we still have to figure out just which Perdue was James' father.

Hi, TGlover.  I have posted the new pedigree information you provided.  I wasn't sure if Daniel and William (b1814) were brothers and if Marion and Zachary (1846 & 1848) were as well, so I posted them seperately for the time being.  If they are siblings, just let me know and I will add them to your previous pedigree.  Thanks and good luck with your research!

Hello, My name is Amy Perdue. I'm 19. My dad's name is Robert A. Perdue. He is one of 4 boys. I really don't know much about my family. My dad doesn't really know that much about the family, except ofcoruse his parents names. They all really don't talk about family stuff and never even really had family pictures up until I had my son. I'm here to learn as much about my family as possible.

GrandFathers name: Geo Perdue (I think)
Grandmothers name: Lorraine ?
Uncles names: Jim Perdue, George Perdue, Ron Perdue.

I will definatly get a lot more information when i ask my father.
But My dad was born in Germany because his father (Geo) was in the Army. So they moved around a lot. He was born Dec, 16, 1949. I was born Dec 30th, 1990.
