Registers of the French Church of Portarlington 1694-1816
« on: Tuesday 08 April 14 11:41 BST (UK) »
The Registers of the French Church of Portarlington 1694-1816 are available in CD form from Archive CD Books Ireland Ltd.
http://www.archivecdbooks.ie/acatalog/Huguenot_Records.html

I see from Claire Santry's blog from 2011 that they are also available on FindMyPastIreland.
http://irish-genealogy-news.blogspot.ie/2011/09/more-huguenot-registers-released.html

I am trying to trace my Cobbe ancestry in Co.Laois.  The earliest verified ancestor is my 3rd great grandmother Anne Cobbe.  I found no marriage, so I don't know her maiden name.  She was buried in Coolbanagher in 1884.  That much is verified.

Her husband Charles appears to have been buried in 1861, which is before state registration, so I am relying on the church burial records, which I cannot verify.  But it looks right.

Then I found another Charles and Anne Cobbe in the Coolbanagher records, buried in 1846 and 1840 respectively.  They could possibly be 4th great grandparents, but of course, wholly unverified.

All of these people would have been born between 1758-1798.  I would have hoped to possibly find them in the Huguenot registers mentioned above, and would buy the CD if I thought they were in there.  But a cursory search on Findmypast shows no mention at all.

I suppose the French Church Registers are not a complete register of Huguenots in Laois?  Were there more, who do not appear in the registers?  Or are there more in the registers who are not on Findmypast?  I am clutching at straws looking back so far for family records, but maybe someone else has seen these registers, or is familiar with the likelihood of tracing Huguenot ancestors so far back.  Many thanks for any comments or opinions.

Pardon me, I only get to check in very occasionally.  Pressure of work.  Many thanks for all the responses.

In that last list, Charles Cobbe of Bellegrove interests me.  He appears to have been a 'cottier' and/or a 'porter.'  However, he is mentioned with two different wives' names, Elizabeth and Anne.  I am sure he is the same Charles, and she may be the same wife, but I wonder?  I assume the 1801 baptism is a transcription error, more likely 1807?

The earliest semi-verified Charles Cobbe I have died in 1861, age 63, from Killimy in Emo.  Charles would have been born circa 1798, and if he were the eldest (there were at least three, maybe four generations of Charles Cobbe) then this would kind of tie in with your given baptisms of 1803, 1805, 1807(?) and 1810 for the 2nd-5th children.  However, I have a DNA connection with the line of a William Cobbe, born circa 1782, who I figured, on DNA evidence, to be an elder brother of Charles, so that confuses things greatly.

An earlier burial appears in the Coolbanagher records of Charles Cobbe in 1846, age 88, from what I read as 'Killinatogher.'  This I now figure most likely to be Kilmalogue.  Is this the Charles Cobbe from Belleville, I ask myself?  But Belleville is quite a distance from Kilmalogue, and Kilmalogue I would have thought was Portarlington rather than Coolbanagher.  Maybe Kilmalogue is wrong.

It's all very sketchy.  Would anyone have any opinions on it all?  Where did those 1803-1812 baptisms come from, the RCB library?

Many thanks.

Those records came from a book titled-
Portarlington 1800-1850 by John Stocks Powell

The combined registers of Portarlington, Lea and Ballykean 1800-1850
also the English Church.
