--------------------------------------
E. L. Goodwin's Ancestry and History writes:
(Pg 4) The facts of his life, as far as known, are these: - In the year 1694 England was at war with France, and "English trade", says Green, was all but ruined by French privateers". In that year a French vessel of this character was wrecked in Buzzards Bay, and the officers and crew, being made prisoners, were sent overland to Boston. Among the rest was Dr. Francis Le Baron, by birth a Frenchman, by religion a Huguenot, by Profession a Surgeon. On their way to Boston they stopped overnight, with their captors, at Plymouth, where Dr. Le Baron "was quartered at the house of William Barnes, near the green". "It so happened that a lady of the town had, on the day of his arrival, suffered a severe compound fracture of the leg" (as we would say: - our northern cousins call it a limb,) "which the surgeons in charge were about to amputate. Dr. Le Baron, hearing of the case, asked permission to make an examination and afterwards saved the limb." The good citizens of Plymouth, struck with such surpassing evidence of his skill, secured his pardon and persuaded him to stop among them and practice his profession, which, with the consent of Lieut. Gov. Stoughton, he did; - living there the rest of his days. The year after his arrival he married Mary Wilder , daughter of Edward Wilder of Hingham, and had three sons, James, Lazarus, and Francis. He died in 1704, and his tombstone is still standing in the old graveyard on Burial Hill.

So much is known, but nothing of his ancestry, station, or history before coming to America. It may be remembered, however, that the Edict of Nantes, which had protected the civil and religious liberties of the French Protestants, had been revoked by Louis XIV but nine years before. Under the persecution of the Huguenots which followed, "children were deprived of the rights of inheritance and forcibly shut up in Convents". Thus families, not only of the middle classes, but of the nobles, were broken up and scattered. To stop the wholesale emigration which followed "The professors of the reformed religion were forbidden to leave France, and in order to prevent their making their escape the outposts and frontiers were strictly guarded". So, though hundreds of thousands did find in self-expatriation a remedy for the evils which oppressed them, in spite of the imperial police, many more must have found it impossible to escape. These facts may account for Le Baron's choice of a life of freedom on the high seas, with its attendant adventure, even if he were of noble birth, which family tradition would seem to maintain. They may also serve to explain his readiness to renounce his allegiance to his native country, and cast in his lot among the rude but hospitable folk of Plymouth.

Mrs. Austin (nee Goodwin) makes him the hero of quite a clever novel, "A Nameless Nobleman", (Boston, J. R. Osgood & Co.). The authoress is descended from Dr. Le Baron through both father and mother and may have preserved some family traditions in her story. But if tradition suffers at her hand as does fact it is little to be relied upon. Her failure to follow the true line of events of his life excites the ire of her old friend Judge Davis, who writes me the "The existence of Francis Le Baron is about the only historical fact contained in the book. Nearly everything else is a sad perversion of history, and one which only a modern female scribbler, of whom there are too many I think, would have been guilty of." His wife was a Hingham lady, and there is not the slightest reason for supposing that either of her parents were other than Puritans. He himself was a Huguenot, and not a Catholic, and after settling in Plymouth he never left America. Long before Mrs. Austin makes him return he was dead, and his widow had married Return Waite. My evidence that he was a Huguenot is conclusive". It is thus given in his book on Plymouth. His grandchild, Elizabeth" (d. of Lazarus Le Baron, b. 1745.) who married Ammi Rubama Robbins of Norfolk Conn: was often heard by her grandchild, Mrs. James Humphreys of Brooklyn, now living, to say that he was a Huguenot".

But the notion that he was a Roman Catholic needs no refutation when one remembers the temper and the tenets of the Puritans, by whom he was urged to settle in Plymouth. The men who banished Roger Williams and Mrs. Hutchinson for their religious opinions, who hanged Quakers and burnt witches, would have made short work of a French Papist. It is noticeable that the new charter granted the colonists but two years before his arrival, 1692, guaranteed liberty of conscience to all, "with the exception of the Papists".

After his marriage Dr. Le Baron bought a lot near the centre of the town, and built a house, part of which is thought to be still standing. Of his sons James, the eldest settled in Middleboro' and married Martha Benson, by whom he had 9 children. Francis, the youngest married Sarah Bartlett and had 5 children. She was sister of the wife of his brother Lazarus.

Doctor Lazarus Le Baron , the second son, was born in 1698 and died in 1773.

--------------------------------------
E.L. Goodwin's Ancestry and History writes:
- (Pg 5) Doctor Lazarus Le Baron, ....., was born in 1698 and died in 1773. He acquired considerable property, and it is of record that he was a slave holder, as were many of his fellow citizens of Plymouth.

He married, in 1720, Lydia Bartlett . She was a daughter of Joseph Bartlett and Lydia Griswold , grand-daughter of Joseph Bartlett and Hannah Fallowell ; great-grand-daughter of Robert Bartlett who came in the "Ann" to Plymouth in 1623, and married his fellow passenger, Mary Warren , whose father, Richard Warren , came in the Mayflower. The Bartletts and Warrens were very prominent families in the early days of Plymouth, and many of them rose to more than local distinction.

Dr. Lazarus LeBaron and Lydia his first wife, had 7 children: - Lazarus, Joseph, Lydia, (m Nath. Goodwin,) Mary, (m. William Bradford of Bristol R.I., Lawyer, Doctor, and Governor of his state. They had 8 children of whom two m. De Wolfs and on, Mary, m. Henry Goodwin, son of Benjamin.) Hannah , (m. Benj. Goodwin) Teresa, and Bartlett. He married again, 1743, Lydia (Bradford) widow of ElKanah Cushman, and had 7 children more; - Isaac, Elizabeth (m. Ammi Ruhama Robbins.) Samuel, Francis, William, Priscilla (m. Abraham Hammatt,) and Margaret. His grandchildren numbered 80 or more. His grave is still to be seen on Burial Hill, Plymouth; where sleep the bodies of scores of our ancestors.

Through the kindness of Cousin Daniel Goodwin, I have a copy of the second Dr. Le Baron's Will; which, had it been that of a Virginian, would have delighted the soul of old Bishop Meade. It is worth giving, literatim.
