MARRIAGE*circa 1851 Charity Peacock married Moses Holland, son of James B. Holland Jr. and Charity Barefoot, circa 1851.2 
Death*before 1860 She died before 1860 She does not appear on the 1860 census.3 
Name Variation  Charity Peacock was also known as Mattie Elizabeth Peacock Apparently Mattie Elizabeth Peacock married Moses Holland although there is no record of their marriage in Pulaski County. Moses and Mattie are listed as parents of Sarah who married Edward Parker. Sarah's death certificate says she was born April 5, 1853 and died June 14, 1931. 
CENSUS1850*1850 She appeared on the CENSUS in 1850 at Pulaski, GA; A Charity Peacock lives next door to John Holland father of John Jasper Holland. In her household is Elizabeth Holland (age 25 or 45) with three teen age children. Directly under Charity's name is a child age 6 named Nancy who appears to belong to Charity. I suspect that if Elizabeth Holland is indeed 45 she is sister of one of the original immigrants. 
Married Namecirca 1851  As of circa 1851,her married name was Holland.2

Birth*1650 Reynier Piat was born in 1650. 
MARRIAGE*1677 He married Elizabeth Sheffield in 1677 Rene and Elizabeth Sheffield are believed to have had two other children, names unknown, between Samuel and the last child, Jane (Joan). (Monnette) From FIRST SETTLERS OF PISCATAWAY AND WOODBRIDGE; (p.225) by Monnette; the following paragraph is copied: "The PYATTS or PIATTS or PIATS (the name is variously spelled) are probably of French origin. In "A Catalogue of ye names of ye Inhabitants of ye Towne of Piscataway," in the old 'Town Book', entered there about 1690, is found that of 'La Fflower, alias Reni Piat'. And in a list of the Freeholders, of about the same date, 'Laflore alias renipate'; and in another list, of a little later date, 'La Flower alias Rene Piat'. It would seem that he first resided in Woodbridge, where in 1677 he was granted a license to marry Elizabeth Sheffield of Flushing, Long Island, NY. Immediately after their marriage, they moved to nearby Piscataway; joined the Baptist Church; and there their children, Jacob Thomas James and Joan, were born (Piscataway Town Records).
The children of Thomas usually used the spelling "Pyatt". Those of Jacob used both "Pyatt" and "Piatt". The last known child, Jane/Joan may have been born on the property purchased from Miles Forster.1 
Death*1705 He died in 1705. 
Biographycirca 1670  Circa 1670 Rene Piatt aka Reni, Regnier, Reyneer, aka Thomas Fleurison, aka Renatus Fleurisson aka Renipiat aka Thomas La Fleur born c1652 in France (probably near Dauphine in the Rhone Region). The Piatts were Huguenots and with their friends, the Pauls, engaged in the making of silk and the operation of vineyards. Certain it is that they were people of substance, members of the nobility who prospered under the beneficial rule of Henri IV, King of France and Navarre. It was this monarch who issued the famous Edict of Nantes in 1598, giving to the French Protestants equal political rights with the Catholic majority as well as freedom of worship. Also, theY were people of principle. For when Louis XIV, who regretably shared neither the wisdom not the tolerance of the last Henry, revoked the Edict in 1685, with the swiftness and cruelty of a whip's lash, the Piatts did not hesitate. The revocation came at the time of great financial stress, the inevitable result of the extravagant and selfish policies of a monarch who ruled solely to gratify his own luxurious tastes. The common people and the lesser nobles were reduced to a condition of want unknown before even to the Europe of that day. At such times, a wealthy minority can expect little generosity from a hard-pressed majority from whom all restraint of law and decency has been removed.

The Huguenot Piatts were forced to choose one of three courses of action: They could renounce their faith and by becoming Catholics, retain their wealth and position; they could submit to intolerable persecution and pillage; they could flee to a more tolerant land. To a people of principal and spirit, only the third course was possible. We know that the party of fleeing Huguenots included one or more members of the Paul family. The fugitive went first to Holland, and from the Netherlands to America by way of England. Rene married December 13, 1677 in Woodbridge, New Jersey, Elizabeth Sheffield born c1654 of Flushing, New York, on December 13, 1677 in Woodbridge, Middlesex, New Jersey. In 1680, Rene bought 55 acres from Jabez Hendricks at Piscataway, New Jersey. In 1688 Rene was granted a Letter Patent of Denization (naturalization) issued from England. In 1694, he purchased 250 acres along Cheesequake Creek from Miles Forster. Rene' died Oct 1705 in Piscataway, Middlesex, New Jersey, at which time Elizabeth was still living. After Rene's death in 1705, Elizabeth was granted administation of his estate by Lord Cornbury at Perth Amboy: "Perth Amboy October ye 16th 1705 - There appeared before me Edward Viscount Cornbury Captaine Generall & Governor in Chief in and over her majestys provinces of New Jersey New Yorke etc Elizabeth Peatt widdow of Reyneer Peatt commonly known by the name of LeFlure late of the Towne of Piscattaway Deceased and praying for administration of the Goods Chattles and Creditts of the Said Deceased itt was Granted Accordingly She being duly Sworne upon the holy Evangelists of Almighty God faithfully to administer the Said estate and to returne an inventory thereof Accordingly." This document was signed "Cornbury".1 
Anecdote*circa 1672  Circa 1672 Rene Piatt aka Reni, Regnier, Reyneer, aka Thomas Fleurison, aka Renatus Fleurisson aka Renipiat aka Thomas La Fleur born c1652 in France (probably near Dauphine in the Rhone Region). The Piatts were Huguenots and with their friends, the Pauls, engaged in the making of silk and the operation of vineyards. Certain it is that they were people of substance, members of the nobility who prospered under the beneficial rule of Henri IV, King of France and Navarre.( Note from MVW - for graphic story of this struggle see the movie "Queen Margot" made in 1994) It was this monarch who issued the famous Edict of Nantes in 1598, giving to the French Protestants equal political rights with the Catholic majority as well as freedom of worship. Also, the were people of principle. For when Louis XIV, who regretably shared neither the wisdom not the tolerance of the last Henry, revoked the Edict in 1685, with the swiftness and cruelty of a whip's lash, the Piatts did not hesitate.

LANDCONTRA*1680 He purchased land in 1680 Reynier bought 55 acres from Jabez Hendricks at Piscataway in 1680, and 250 acres from Miles Forster along Cheesequake Creek in 1694. Reynier or Reni probably came from France via Holland or England. In 1688 he was granted a Letter patent of Denization (naturalization) issued from England.
