The Jersey link to Feuvrier interests me, though the birth of my distant relative was in Paris, the family were clock makers who oddly originate nr. Switzerland.

Redroger, I'm so sorry, I was wrong. It's a long time since I've been on that branch of the tree & I'm afraid the name isn't Feuvrier; I was thinking of Le Fevre.

There's a nice genealogical word list here which might help some.
http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/RG/Guide/WLFrench.ASP

[..........]

The 1859 and before records are up but just as indexes (I think they do intend to put the actual records up eventually but I can't find the page again where they were talking about timescales).

https://www.familysearch.org/
 does have a possible baptism for Louis Alfred Cuquemelle, bap. St-Sulpice, Paris in 1828 and various indexed records for his family.  If this is him, his parents' marriage is indexed as in Saint-Germain-En-Laye - very close to Paris (wikipedia describes it as being part of the "western suburbs" of the city) but officially part of Yvelines department, so the records are at http://www.yvelines.fr/archives/archives/accueilbase.htm

I always forget about familysearch.org! Thank you for reminding me & thanks for the other links.

Thanks anyway, Le Fevre is not uncommon in England, in parts of Yorkshire unfortunately to the bearers it is pronounced as Fever.

Victoria Cuquemelle is also an ancestor of mine so I was really pleased to come across this conversation! Thanks to the advice on here I've been able to make much more progress than I would have done otherwise!

Janine - I've had some luck tracing Louis Alfred Cuquemelle's family but have hit a brick wall with Reine Warnier. I would love to know if you got any further tracing her background?

Many thanks

Karen

Just a question to which I should know the answer, How far back do the French records go as I have possible Hugenots in my tree in the 18th century and earlier?

Date of first record epends on location.
Civil records start around 1793 (early years are sometimes a bit dodgy). Before that you have parish records.
Catholic church records, for the parishes I'm interested in the Vendee department, vary in starting dates - 1650, 1688, occasionally going back to the late 1500s. (often there will be damage/gaps, of course). There is one for which the early records seem to have been lost leaving that line hanging around in the mid-1700s.
Protestant records they also have online - earliest 1636. Depending on the location again - there may be some areas for which you go back before 1600 (but probably not far before).

On the side of Reine Warnier, an important document to locate would be the marriage to Louis Alfred Cuquemelle.
I did find a possible birth - Reine Warnier, 21 April 1841 - in the Paris documents, but this is part of the "reconstructed" records so no further info on the index than that (there should be more info but not online, I think).

Many thanks indeed. My possible Hugenot ancestors "Moule" were in  Cambridgeshire in the 18th century, so if they were Hugenot it's sometime back.
