George Champaigne - He served aboard the frigate South Carolina. A.A.1880A; Moss, page 161. In Lewis's work, Neptune's Militia, page 141, he is cited as a "French sailor (Matelot vol. de Lux.).
According to Moss's work, Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution, his name is as recorded above, not Champayne or Shampayne.
Francois Mutain - He served aboard the frigate South Carolina under John Joyner. A.A.5422D; Moss, page 715. In Lewis's work, Neptune's Militia, page 159, he is cited as a "French sailor".
These two should be added to the post dated "04/16/2015" that dealt with several foreign individuals who received money from the state of South Carolina for their services on board the frigate South Carolina. That post contains the names of fourteen men, all of foreign extraction, who served on board the frigate. This information is recorded in Revill, page 386. A statement directly below the names of these fourteen men indicates that there were originally sixteen other individuals who also made "...Demands for their wages on board said Frigate, and for whom Jas. Johns Esq. or Rob't Cosam was agent or Att'y..." The statement concludes with the brief notation that "...no claims have been rendered to the Office".
The first man cited above is rather unique in that he, George Champaigne, is cited as having been a "French sailor" as well as a member of the"Matelot vol. de Lux." he is one of those individuals who was a part of the "Voluntaires du Luxembourg", the French Army unit that served as the marines, on board the frigate South Carolina for her first voyage from the Texel, Holland to Philadelphia, PA between August 1781 and May 1782. Only a very few individuals from this unit filed a claim against the state of South Carolina and, even then, probably through the auspices of an attorney or other legally recognized agent.
The second individual, Francois Mutain, is cited as simply a "French sailor". There were a number of these French-born seamen who filed claims against the state of South Carolina for services rendered on board the frigate South Carolina. In the Revill source, page 386, fourteen are cited by name and sixteen others are directly alluded to. There may have been others as well. Again, as with the individual mentioned above, this man probably utilized the services of an attorney or agent to make his case.
