Garrett is said to have come from France in 1685 after Louis XIV revoked the Edict of Nantes, an edict issued by Henry IV of France in 1598, granting religious freedom and political equalityto the Huguenots. This revocation was a sentence of civil death on them all, it crushed more than half the commercial and manufacturing industry of the kingdom.

Garret was a teacher in France in 1685 when the protestants found it necessary to flee from the county due to the revoking of the Edict of Nantes, which gave political equality to the protestants and the catholics. With Peter Froman and others he fled to Germany and settled along the Rhine River near Heidelburg and Strassburg.

The descendants of Garret, Peter Froman, and Henry Speers came together in America in 1738 and intermarried several times.
