Védrines Family Who Stayed in France

The father of all Vidrines in Louisiana – Jean Baptiste Lapaise De Védrines – had three brothers and three sisters who remained in France. While information about the three girls is scant, a little more is known about the three boys. The oldest son, Pierre De Védrines inherited the family property while the other two of his brothers became Benedictine Monks. One was his older brother, François De Védrines and the other was his younger brother, Guillaume De Védrines.
