2 Antoine Desasure (or Dessaussure) Perronette de Crockertagn'e b. July 10, 1643 South of France He was a French Huguenot. He married Louise de Saix. According to tradition, he was said to have been one of the most handsome young men in the south of France. He was an excellent horseman and devoted to his calling. He gained the attention of King Louis XIV by his fine personal appearance and love of duty. The king was eager to retain h im in his service and to plae him as second in command of the household guards. In 1664, at the age of 21, he was given a commission in the household troops of Louis X1V. While in this position, he met many of the nobility and amog them was the beautiful Louise de Saix, whom he married in 1669. (The mother of Marquis de Lafayette was a cousin of Louise de Saix). After marrying Louise, he resigned his commission in order to establish a home of his own. He became commercial agent for th Maurys and Fontaines, who had a monopoly on the wine and salt trade in the south of France. It was through the influmce of the sainted Mathew Maury that he was converted to the Protestant faith.

More on Samuel Crockett
Samuel Crockettb. 1695 in Ireland Married at about the age of 45 to Esther Thompson who was approximately 20 years younger. ( See traditional story below)
Samuel Crockett was born about 1695 in Ireland He immigrated to America about 1715 and was married to Esther Thompson, daughter of Rev. John Thompson. Tradition has it that when Samuel, about 20 years old was aboard the ship that brought him to America, he met Reverend John Thompson who was also a passenger. Samuel told Reverend Thompson that he would wait for his daughter, Esther, to grow up and then marry her if the Reverend would give permission. Reverend Thompson laughingly gave his consent, never dreaming the young man would wait. Esther was 45 years old when Samuel died and he is referred to as an 'old man' in 1749. His will was dated Dec. 11, 1749 and probated May 22, 1750. He died in late December 1749 or early 1750 and referred to as an 'old man.
In some tradition, John Crockett is said to be the husband of Esther Thompson, but there are certain recorded facts that seem to disprove this and indicate her husband's name was Samuel. Esther's daughter, Ann Agnes Crockett, married John Montgomery and in John Montgomery's will, he appoints Robert, John and Samuel Crockett, "sons of Samuel Crockett," as his executors. Esther married William Sayers after Samuel's death and William Sayers, in a settlement of the estate of Col. James Patton, acted on behalf of the 'children of Samuel Crockett.", who were his underage step children. Esther Thompson-Crockett-Sayers died Nov. 19, 1770 . Another Crockett-Thompson-Montgomery connection is the marriage of John Crockett, son of Samuel Crockett and Esther Thompson, who married Elizabeth Montgomery. Some believe she is the sister of Captain John Montgomery, others think she is the daughter of Capt John Montgomery's eldest brother, Robert Montgomery. From the dates of her birth compared to her husband's (John Crockett) birth year and her children, the date of her birth would be the date of birth attributed to Elizabeth Montgomery, the daughter of James Montgomery and Ann Thompson. I am not sure of who her parents were, but feel like they must be related to Rev. John Thompson, whose daughter, Esther, married John Crockett's father, Samuel Crockett. The daughter of Rev. John Thompson, whose name was Ann, however, married Francis Thornton IV.
