54 From the New Zealand Book Council


Du Fresne, Yvonne (1929 - 2011) was a fiction writer whose works, set in the Danish-French Huguenot community, are among the finest literary examinations of non-British European cultures in New Zealand.

Born in Takaka, du Fresne moved to the North Island at age three and was brought up in the Danish-French Huguenot settlement of the Manawatu. Her writing shows a strong affinity with the regions landscape.

Du Fresne trained as a teacher in Christchurch, qualifying in classroom music and voice teaching, and specialised in teaching music. As a teacher, she has worked in Primary Schools, at Wellington Teachers' College, and at the Correspondence School, for which she was also a drama scriptwriter. Three radio plays have been broadcast on National Radio, ?The Spring?, ?The Ship?, ?A Little Talk About Our Winter District?.

Her collection of short fiction, Farvel and other stories (1980) won the PEN Best First Book Award and was read over the radio as ?Astrid of the Limberlost?. At this time du Fresne travelled to writers conferences at Aarhus and Kiel Universities on a travel award from the Danish Ministry of Culture.

This debut was followed by a novel, The Book of Ester (1982), and a collection of linked stories The Growing of Astrid Westergaard (1985). Astrid Westergaard features the same Danish New Zealand protagonist as Farvel and was also adapted for radio.

Both collections, writes Nina Nola in the Oxford Companion to New Zealand Literature ?attempt to establish a connection between the non-British European migrants and Maori.? The Womens Press published a selection of the stories as The Bear from the North (1989) with the subtitle ?Tales of a New Zealand Childhood?.

The Book of Ester also has a Hugenot protagonist, whom critics described as a grown up Astrid Westergaard. After the death of her Danish husband, Ester traces the course her forbears took to arrive in New Zealand, and finds consolation in the arms of a fellow Dane.

Frederique (1987) is deeply engaged with European history and the mythical world of Danish folklore. While visiting Denmark in 1980, du Fresne discovered an entry in her family records about a young woman - the Frederique of the title - who was wounded during the assassination of her parents by French Catholic agents in 1723. This story was the seed for the novel, set in 19th century New Zealand.

In Motherland (1996), Astrid Westergaard, returns to Denmark and has a reunion with her Danish relatives. ?As romance flourishes,? writes Janet Wilson in NZ Listener, ?du Fresne brings into suggestive parallel the deeper exploration of Astrids psyche that love urges with the rediscovery of her roots in Jutland.?

?Interweaving Astrid's story with an underlying enquiry about nationality, and brilliantly controlling the surface elements of mystery and romance, she has written more than a moving and believable story.?

Over her publishing career Yvonne du Fresne received a number of literary awards and scholarships in New Zealand and Denmark. After winning the best first book award for Farvel, she was twice runner-up in the New Zealand Book Awards for The Growing of Astrid Westergaard and The Book of Ester.

While on a Writers Residence at Aarhus University Jutland, Denmark in 1999, du Fresne established future writers residencies for New Zealand writers at that university .

In reviewing Motherland in New Zealand Books, Heather Murray could as easily be describing du Fresne's oeuvre when she writes: ?[Y]es, it is a story of coming to terms with one's heritage but du Fresne avoids the pitfalls of the well done-over topic. She writes so beautifully and puts such a new edge on it all, that the reader finds everything to enjoy.?

Yvonne du Fresne passed away in Wellington on the 13 March 2011, aged 81.

69 In 1637 Pierre Devantie was born in La Gourge in the landscape La Lau. It?s now in Northern France. At that time in history, the area was part of Spanish Netherland. The whole area is also called Paybas, and it extends into Belgium.

Pierre was a farmer. A couple of the things he grew are 2 of the new crops, that came from America, namely Tobacco and Potatoes. I assume that they were industrious and talented. If you read the history books, this is the impression you get. The Huguenots were considered some of the best farmers in this century in France.

One thing that had great influence, on the future, for the Huguenot families. Was that King Louis 14, had been taught to hate the Reformed. When he took absolutely power in France in 1661, he did everything possible to prevent the Reformed to operate and live. He persecuted Huguenots with death, banishment to galleys (slave ships) or deprived them of everything they owned.
The Devantie Family probably also felt a lot of that, they could avoid persecution if they became Catholic or fled to neighboring countries. The latter did the Devantier family fairly quickly after Louis came to absolutely power in 1661.

They fled to Friesenheim located in The Principality Palatinate in Germany. Here they were welcomed with open arms. The prince knew that they were good farmers and the reformed refugees, got many privileges, which made it possible for them to start a new life. Our family continued as tobacco and potato growers. The Devantier family got some good years here.
In the 1680s disaster struck again. Principality Palatinate got a new prince. After pressure from France the prince became a Catholic. And he began to pursue the Reformed. He demanded that they should transfer their properties to the state.
At that time, the Reformed had been so long in the land, that they had good farms. And now the Livelihood disappeared for the Huguenots, Also for the Devantier family. They fled the country in 1689.
This time they fled further east to the Duchy Brandenburg (north of Berlin). Here they were welcomed with open arms. There came over 20,000 refugees to Brandenburg. Here they were granted large areas of land, which was devastated by wars and epidemics. The area was called Uckermarck, located between The Baltic Sea and Berlin. The Reformed started a dozen colonies, which quickly became real villages. Many of the names still exists including Battin, Bergholz, Klein and Gross-Ziethen, Gramzow and Woddow.
The Devantier family moved to Woddow, where they started all over again with farming. Again it was tobacco and potato, which was the primary crop
All this persecution and fleeing are too much for Pierre Devantier. I can easily imagine that he was tired and worn out now; He dies in 1692 only about 55 years old. It looks like, it?s the 4. Child (Isaac Devantier) that takes over the farm over the farm in Woddow. The next generation was ready to take over..
Devantier, Pierre (I148)
70 In 2012, I visit New Zealand in November and December. I had the chance to meet relatives down under. One of them was Ralph Dearlove, also a keen family historian. He is a descendant of Abraham Honore and therefor also a Devantier descendant. Abraham Honore went to New Zealand and back in Denmark he left siblings and parents. When I was down under Ralph asked me if I could take a look at one of Abraham Honore's siblings. Her name was Marie Honore. The reason for Ralph's interest was her dead year. It was 1848. In that year Denmark were in war with Germany. So Ralph had speculated whether her much too early death, had something to do with that.

Back in Denmark I was in for a surprise. After a look in the reformed Church book for the year 1848, I found the entry for Marie Honore and the death date (May 30 1848) we knew, was OK. But there were added more information. It turned out that she was wounded in a bombing on May 8. That was new for me, I had never heard about a bombing of Fredericia May 8 1848. I had always thought the big battle about Fredericia was in 1849. So it was back to the history books..

After a little searching and reading, I learned that it was good enough. But it all turns out to be something different, than I thought. I mentioned earlier that we were in war with Germany, It's not absolutely true. The war from 1848-1850 was more or less a civil war. The Duchies of Slesvig-Holsten was under the Danish king. And in early 1848 they tried to separate from Denmark. After some negation war broke out. In the beginning Denmark lost several battles and was more or less on the run. The soldiers from Slesvig/Holstein with help from Prussia discovered that the soldiers had left Fredericia, and the night of May 2-3. They occupied the City and hoisted a German Flag. That was too much for the Danish Navy and on May 8 they arrived outside Fredericia with 6 cannon boats. They started bombarding the Prussian troops and they retaliated with their guns. And a battle started....
As it is with wars, it's not only the soldiers who suffered losses. Manny of the Danish Cannon balls hit civilian houses and places in Fredericia, with several casualties among civilians.
Back to Marie Honore, so it was not, as I had believed, the Germans that wounded her. . No not at all, she was hit by a Danish cannonball or whatever, they used. And later she died of her wounds.
Another thing happened that day, which affected the Reformed congregation in . The Gunpowder Tower together with the fortress burned or blew up; it meant that, when the Danish soldiers came back to Fredericia after May 25. The Reformed Church was confiscated and used as ammunitions depot for the rest of the 3-year war.
Sometimes a little question gives a long answer.
