The Descendants of Guillaume Fouquet

The Fuqua Family in America had its origins in Colonial Virginia. The vast majority (but not all) of "Fuqua's" have descended from a single immigrant who lived in Virginia in the 1600s.

The immigrant, commonly known as Guillaume Fouquet, is widely believed to have been a French Huguenot. Sometime after his arrival in Charles City County, he married an English woman named Jane Eyre and, together, they  began a cascade of American descendants.  Click Name for more information on :
