The Tennilles of Georgia

The Tennilles are supposed to have left France, probably Picardy, at the time of the persecutions of the Protestant after the Edict of Nantes in that country. One branch going to Holland or Denmark and another, that from which the Georgia family springs is thought to have emigrated either to Scotland or to the Isle of Man removing thence to Ireland from whence at least one member came to Virginia and settled in Prince William County.
