Male 1671 - 1719
Peter's father, Lord Gabrielle Jacques de Noblet, moved fro
m France to England. It is not known whether his father rem
ained there or went to Ireland, but Peter definitely reloca
ted there in 1697 to claim an estate awarded the family b
y James II. His sojourn constituted a period of less than t
hirty years before his four sons decided to migrate to th
e English Colonies in America.
nce in the Emerald Isle leads some to label the Noblet / No
blitt family forebears as being Irishmen, which is inaccura
te. The ancestral heritage of their Norman-French lineage r
emained unbroken during an extended period of 650 years. Ho
wever, some Noblets stayed on in Ireland, with descendant
s living there today; and it is to the familiy's credit tha
t Noblets remaining in Ireland have had a great history an
d maintained a respected place in Irish society.
