There are eight relatives. Around 1118, a French knight named Hugues de Payens established a military order called the Poor Knights of the Temple of King Solomon with the help of eight relatives and acquaintances (later known as the Knights Templar). The order was approved by Pope Callistus II.
The Knights Templar were an armed religious military order founded in Jerusalem around 1119 by Hugues de Payens. The order was granted a charter by Henry II, king of England, and it expanded quickly into Europe. It was one of the first military orders; its role was to protect pilgrims to Jerusalem and trade goods going to Egypt. The order is also noted for having arrested and interrogated prisoners during wartime. After initial successes, the Knights were defeated at the Battle of Hattin in 1187 and most of their property was confiscated. Some members escaped to France, where they started anew, but most were executed or forced to surrender. In 1314, after years of inactivity, the last commander of the order was beheaded on Charles IV's orders.
The Knights Templar were unique among medieval military orders in that they took vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience before being admitted into the order. These vows later formed the basis for the monastic movement within Christianity. The order had exclusive rights to trade along the Mediterranean coast from Italy to Algeria. They built fortifications to protect their trade routes and prisons to hold slaves.

David Winans II. Family members (eldest, first sibling)-(b. 1872) Mary Elizabeth Winans (1874-1948), John Henry Winans III (1876-1947).
He was born on August 4th, 1872 in Mount Airy, North Carolina. His father was a minister for the Methodist Church and his mother was a devout Christian woman who taught school before having children. The family moved to Raleigh when David was still a boy so he could attend the public schools there. He worked during the day while studying music at night. At age 21, he went to New York City where he became an organist and choir director for several churches. In 1900, he married Clara Louise McElroy; they had two children together before divorcing in 1919. He then married another woman named Grace Lee Williams in 1920 and they had one child together.
David Winans II started working with the Georgia Railroad in 1890 when he was only 19 years old. He played many instruments including the piano, organ, and violin. He was also a singer who had a very powerful voice. In 1916, he toured with the Jimmie Rodgers Orchestra as their lead vocalist.
As a result, many common English surnames (e.g., Andrieu/Andrews, Boulanger/Baker, Barbier/Barber, Delacroix/Cross, Reynard/Fox, Le Cerf/Hart, LeBlancs/White) have Huguenot origins. My surname originates in the Languedoc area, when a particular David Bosanquet emigrated in 1685. He was born around 1655 and died in 1708. So my ancestor John David Bosanquet was probably his son.
Other common English surnames that originate with the Huguenots include Aubry/Aubrey, Bazin/Bynum, Beaume/Beech, Boivin/Boone, Cossigny/Cosson, Danjou/Danehy, D'Autremont/O'Donnell, Duvallier/Dewell, Falconet/Fenton, Fougere/Foger, Gendron/Gannon, Jaudon/Johson, Joie/Joyce, Laborde/Lacey, Lantaigne/Langland, Le Moyne/Moyer, Olivier/Owen, Paillet/Peck, Rohan/Roe, Saunois/Sowse, Tiphaine/Tighe, and Vigneau/Vinegar.
The most famous family of Huguenots is no doubt that of the Calvinists known as the House of Valois-Angoulême.
