Beware the Trebuchet!

El Castillo Javier

I am descendant from the same family as St. Francis Xavier, who lived in this castle. We've gone from counselors to the Kings of Navarre and France to Idaho Wool Farmers. Descendants from the same family were Huguenots that fled France after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. They went to London, and then on to Maryland, calling themselves Seviers, then Severes. Except the family history is all messed up. Leave it to Mormons to do a lazy job. But I have the rest of my life to figure it out, I guess.
