      ‘Although the Flora family has generally been considered German,
      it isbelieved that earlier they were French. The pioneer,
      Joseph J. Flure waslisted as a Huguenot. This name was applied
      to French Lutherans by amonk in the course of one of his sermons
      because it was customary for theFrench Protestants to congregate
      around the palace of King Hugo duringthe evening. The various
      spellings, such as Fleury, Flury, Fleuri, usedinterchangeably in
      early records confirm this French origin. You willnow find the
      following spellings in some communities; Flohr, Florey,Fleury
      and Flori. The more common spellings are Flory and Flora.



      The massacre of St. Bartholomew, which took place in France on
      August 24,1572, resulted in the murder of fifty thousand
      Protestants and thebeginning of the migrating of Huguenots to
      Palatinate, Germany andsurrounding states. Tradition also
      records that as a result of thispersecution, some of the Fleurys
      also migrated from northeastern Franceinto Palatinate, Germany.
      In 1618, the Thirty Years War began in Germanybetween the
      Catholics and the Protestants. These religious wars andsevere
      persecutions are very likely what caused the Flora?s to migrate
      toAmerica.



      In 1733, the ship Hope made its journey to America in three
      stages. Thefirst part was down the Rhine to Rotterdam. The
      second, from Rotterdamto some English port, probably Cowes, on
      Isle of Wight, where the shipwas provisioned and clearance
      papers were obtained. The third wascrossing the Atlantic. The

      ship arrived in Philadelphia on August 28, 1733. Passage costs
      were from$27.00 to $90.00 per person.



      According to the passenger list A for the ship Hope and other
      records,Joseph J. Flure and his wife, Mary, and seven children
      arrived in Americaon August 28, 1733.
