Isabella: also spelled Elliche, Illiche, Liche, Iche, & Eche in Huguenot Church records.

Here is a portion from an address given to the present day homeowner's association at Calmes neck:

Arrival of the Calmes family

My family legend is that my ancestor had invited from Williamsburg ( note from Margot - Burrell is talking about the wrong ancestor. In fact Marquis was brought to extablish the Vineyard but by an earlier ancestor) a Marquis de Calmes, a French Huguenot, to set out a vineyard for him in the 1790s after my ancestor had moved up here. In fact, that couldn't be true because we later learned someone had dug up a tombstone just across the river were the Sites live, opposite the end of your Neck. The tombstone was that of Winifred Calmes, who died in 1751. So the Calmes family was not brought here 50 years later as the Marquis de Calmes; they were here well before my family arrived. What we now believe is that there was a Huguenot refugee named Marquis Calmes I, who came into Stafford County near Fredericksburg at the beginning of the 18th century.5

"History of Our Ancestor - Marquis de la Calmes"
A Huguenot nobleman (If he was a nobleman it was rather a low level one. The family appears to have been city administrators in France) was born in France in 1705 Note from Margot: SLB is wrong here. Family left France and lived in England before moving to Virginia. Marquis was born in Safford County Virginia.) died1751. In 1726 (note from Margot - he returned to France for education so this 1726 date is likely the time he returned to his native land of Virginia) he left his native country and came to Virginia giving up his titles and great estates to seek a home in a land of freedom. Soon after his arrival he married an English lady in Williamsburg, Miss Winifred Waller of distinguished parentage, possessed of noble qualities of mind and rare virtue. He removed to the Shenandoah Valley and consequently became one of the early settlers. His home was in Clark County near the Shenandoah river, where he acquired by grant of Lord Fairfax a large tract of land. In 1743 he was appointed by Hon. William Gooch his majesties Lieut Governor and Commander in Chief of the colony and dominion of Virginia, under the seal of the colony, appointing Marquis Calmes one of the original thirteen justices that constituted the first court of Frederick County, Clark being a part of Frederick. He served with distinction attaining rank of Major in the Indian war. Throughout he bravely defended his Country. He died in 1781 and was buried on his "The Vine Yard Plantation." On a horizontal slab of granite, which is the oldest monument in the cemetery adjoining "Old Chapel" appears following inscription.
Here lies the body of Winifred wife of Major Marquis Calmes. They were joined in wedlock twenty-six years and had six children. (There follows a list of children whose dates have been incorporated to this database.)

Here is a bit of bio from an address given to the Calmes Neck Homeowner's association.
Marquis Calmes II

Marquis Calmes II was born in 1705 and worked his way up from Fredericksburg, obviously lived at Mannassa Gap, the mountain above Front Royal, because that used to be called Calmes Gap (note from Margot - the gap more likely named for his father.) He arrived and was one of the first circuit judges in Winchester in the early 1750s, and bought one of the first lots there (lot 16) from Col. James Wood, who plotted Winchester when it was incorporated. In 1747, he bought from Lord Fairfax 500 acres at Calmes Neck.

He was one of the earliest settlers, because there was hardly anyone here in the valley up to the 1730s. And he prospered. He was a judge in Winchester, and had one of the four "chairs" as they called them. A chair was a two-wheeled carriage. He was in distinguished company, because the only others were Lord Fairfax and Joyce Hite, the other big landowner in the west part of the Valley, and Col. James Wood.
