"The Crocketts were the descendants of Monsieur de la Croquetagne, captain in the Royal Guard of the king of France, Louis XIV. As a Huguenot, he or his descendants eventually fled France in the 17th Century and migrated to Ireland."

This book, The French in Texas: History, Migration, Culture edited by Fran├žois Lagarde discusses that Davy Crockett did not know he was of French descent. It discusses that his grandparents, the keeper of family lore, were killed, murdered by Creek Indians. Genealogist traced the family line back to the Huguenot Colony of New Rochelle, New York, across the Atlantic to Ireland, then crossing the Channel to France. Crockett's forefather, Antoine de Sassure Peronnette de Crocketagne who served as second command of the household guard of King Louis the XIV. In 1669, he married Louis de Saix, a cousin of Marquis de Layfayette. The couple converted to Prostestantism and found themselves outside the law of 1685 when King Louis XIV revoked the Edict of Nantes, which granted tolerance to French Protestants. This revocation gave them and others 20 days to leave the country or be killed.
