Jersey deaths lookup
« on: Thursday 07 July 16 14:08 BST (UK) »
Hi.  I am trying to discover where my great great grandfather died. His name was Alphonse Lecomte, born in France (possibly in Baynes, Calvados) about 1839. He disappears from the French Census    records after 1876  but I have not been able to find a death for him in the French records. In 1881 his widow and son were living in Jersey so I am wondering if he possibly died there. Any help would be much appreciated.

What are the names of his widow and son and which parish are they living in?

Hello. The widow is listed with her maiden name. She was Victoire Francoise. Her son was Aimable Le Comte. They were living in the parish of St Owen in 1881.
