Roots of the du Bois family

Classification: Query
Surnames: du Bois
My family originates from the southern Flanders, Belgium, which centuries ago belonged to France. We can backtrack the origin to approx. 1520. I have found two brothers du Bois, Jacques and Louis, born in 1626 and 1627 in Wicres, County of Artois, France, and their father Chrétien. The brothers, Huguenots, emigrated to Ulster, New York.
Wicres is located in what is still today France, but not very far from where my ancesters originate. I am trying to find out if these two branches were at one point related.
Can anybody help ?
