In Response To: Re: [PUERTO RICO] Vazquez ()
I am totally baffled with certain broadly used terms such as "passing" or worse yet the misconception all Europeans in the Southeast were English/Irish. As mentioned there is a significant "Creole/creole" (not a fan of those terms either) imprint in Virginia and the Carolinas.
The Robert family were Huguenots from France. Some migrated to Wales, others went to to Switzerland before arriving in Charleston. There were numerous plantations in the Southeast. Guaranteed you can draw a solid line to Hispaniola, Louisiana and Canada - before 1800. You may want to study the migration of mixed-race, free people of color in Spanish and French speaking West Indies between 1800-1840. Further direction can be provided if needed.
