Hi Mandy,
I have a lot of information about James Jacques Dague, Benjamin Tull and Peter Dauge (who I noticed you had also asked about). It is too much to submit here, so if you don't mind, I will email it to you. What is your husband's connection? And, what information do you already have?

I do have a fair bit of information, but you know how it is, more is always appreciated! Also I'd like to verify what I have with someone else.
I'll start with Peter Dauge. b.~1692 d. 09 NOV 1778 Lt. Col. in 10th North Carolina Regt. in the Revolutionary War.
Married before 1727 to Susanah Tull.
Susanah Tull b.~1695 p. Currituck Co., NC Her father was Benjamin Tull, mother Susanah Tull.
Benjamin Tull willed land to his grandaughter Susanah Dauge, daughter of Peter Dauge and Susanah Tull.
Peter's father was James Jacque Dauge b.~1660 p.France, possibly Narbone, Languedoc Province. He captained a ship from Normandy in the early 1600's and recieved a grant for acreage in NC 20 OCT 1689. He was the Father of 9 (I do have their names and husbands for the women, will post if you want.)
James Jaque Dauge's father was Pier or Pierre Dauge, a Huguenot.
James Jacque was married to Mary Bonney, whose parents were Richard Bonney (1640-1708) and Mary Shipp.
James Jacque died APR 1719 Currituck Co., NC.
I have several alternate spellings for Dauge. James Jacque Dauge would be my husband's 9th Great Grandfather on his mother's side.

I am very interested in the family of James Jacques Dague. The line I am working on comes through Richard to Benjamin to Elias to his son Tully who became Dozier. I would love to know something of the family in France. I will be grateful for any help. Nancy

Since posting the above message, I have found the following corrections. I am always looking for more, so if you have anything to add to this, please do.

1. Capt. James Jacques Dague (b. abt 1660 in Saintonge, France) came to Princess Anne Co., VA. Supposedly, he was a sea captain who transported people to America.
James Dauge first appears in Virginia records in a court case in Lower Norfolk County dated 15 March 1687/8. He complains to the court that a neighbor, James Sherwood, "for not helping to clear the highways and make a bridge over a cypress swamp". This evidently involves the mandatory labor levied by highway committees on affected property owners, a common colonial practice. James Sherwood and his wife Grace (later accused of witchcraft) were living in present-day Princess Anne County ("Grace Sherwood, the Virginia Witch" William & Mary Quarterly, 1894, vol.3#2,pp.96-7).
1691-1696: He was a member of the Princess Ann County Court. The records show that he was very active in the local government.
1696: He married Mary Bonney, daughter of his next door neighbor, Richard Bonney. Between 1700-1710, he and Mary had 9 children: Jacquelin, John, Richard, James Jr., William, Mary, Macina, Peter and Nowdina.
1699: His signature appears on a declaration made by the Princess Anne Co. Militia swearing allegiance to the new sovereigns William and Mary.
1704: He paid rent on 784 acres in Princess Anne Co.
1713: he bought 1,025 acres in Currituck Co., NC
1714: He was Sheriff of Currituck Co.
1716: He received patents on land in Currituck Co.
April 13, 1719: Will written
Sept. 2, 1719: Will probated in Princess Anne Co., although it is said that he died in Currituck Co.
This surname varied from Dague > Dauge > Douge > Doudge > Dozier. The last four still in use in Princess Anne Co. VA & Currituck Co., NC

2. Leonard Dozier arrived at a French Huguenot settlement in Nansemond Co., VA area. It seemed that his descendants were mostly between there and Westmoreland Co. And, for the most part, kept the Dozier name. I do not have additional information for this group.

3. Jacques Dugue was a French Huguenot who settled in South Carolina. His wife was Elizabet Dupuy and they had three children: Pierre, Isaac & Elizabeth. Their children were born in France.
If your French is better than mine, maybe you can read these excerpts from the Huguenot Society of SC list of French & Swiss Inhabitants of SC. I can read enough to know that these people were not in VA.

PIERRE DUGUÉ, Isaac Dugué, son frère, et Élizabeth Dugué, leur sæur,
néz à Bésance en Bery, enfans de Jacques Dugué et d'Élizabet Dupuy.

ABRAHAM FLEURY, De la Pleine, né à Tours, fils de
Charles Fleury, et de Madeleine Soupzmain.
Marianne Fleury, sa fille, veuve de Jacques Dugué, née
à Paris, et Marianne Dugué, fille du défunct Jacques
Dugué, et du dit Marianne Fleury, née en Caroline

I have found trees that have:
1. Capt. James Dague married to Elizabeth Dupuy and Marianne Fleury, with children by each of them. Not so, he was only married to Mary Bonney and their children were all born in VA.
2. Leonard Dozier listed as James’ brother and both of them married to Elizabeth Dupuy. Not so, Elizabeth Dupuy lived in SC and married Jacques Dugue.

I hope this will be of some help to some one.

Hi Larry,
I am also tracing the D'Auge/Douge/Dozier line. I would greatly appreciate any information you are willing to give, especially early information in France. If I can contribute anything, I would be glad to do so. Thanks!
