Isaac LeFevre
Birth: 1667, France
Death: unknown
Virginia, USA

Isaac LeFevre was born in France and fled to England after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. He and his family sailed from Gravesend England on the ship "Peter & Anthony" (Galley of London) to Mankakin, Virginia in the spring of 1700 and landed at Jamestown, July 1700.

In 1700, he and his wife are named in the "List of Meal" at Falling Creek Mill, "Ye Refugees to receive one bushel per head of meal monthly as settled in and about King Williamtowne," From Tax records, Isaace LeFevre was born in France in 1667 and died in Virginia 1720/24.

The register of the Church of the French Refugees gives the name of his wife as Magdelaine. The census of King William Parish of 1714 proves they had one sone and three daughters.

He was elected instructor of Philosophy and Mathematics in William and Mary College and served one year. He resigned after some difficulty with the Governor anf faculty in regard to studies.

In 1724, he seems to have been a resident of Jamestown near the capitol of Williamsburg. The reference to the Royal Governor summoning him to pass upon the work of the surveyors shows that he resided near the capitol. He patented 68 acres on October 31, 1716.

1. Abram LeFevre (m. Catherine MNU)
