I am tracing my family in Brittany in the area of Saint Malo in the middle ages: Leroy, and LeJuiff. They were nobles. Many Jews fleeing Portugal and Spain bought titles in this area of France and converted.
The National Library of France has documents about them which I would like to get copies of:
32905, f.82: "The ennobles of the provinces of Brittany from 1400 until 1688." Collection composed by d'Hozier
NAF 22356, f.125: "the annoblis of the province of Brittany since 1400."
I believe that the Leroy line is not Jewish but became Calvinist in the 1500's.
Olive LeJuiff married Jehan Leroy, Sieur de la Mettrye, in the 1540s. I am trying to trace her family back to find out if and when they converted to Christianity and where they came from.
Olive's parents were Jean LeJuiff, 1500-1555, and Guyonne Derrien (Derien?) (Derian?), 1503-1558.
Any assistance you could provide in copying pages of these works containing information about Leroy or LeJuiff or Derien would be appreciated.
