Tennessee Branch

The Tennessee Branch is the state organization of the Huguenot Society of the Founders of Manakin in the Colony of Virginia and is composed of four chapters.
Captain Nicolas Martiau Chapter -- West Tennessee
Jean Pierre Bondurant Chapter -- Middle Tennessee
John Sevier Chapter - East Tennessee
William Witt Chapter -- East Tennessee.

We welcome prospective members and are ready to assist prospects with their genealogy and applications. Searching for your Huguenot ancestors is a fulfilling effort and membership a pride, but the lasting result is knowing that you descend from a courageous and dedicated French Huguenot.
