MARRIAGE OF CHARLES (de) BELIN AND SARAH SPRATT 1830
« on: Wednesday 15 February 17 12:58 GMT (UK) »
Many years during my research I was given this "Messervy Transcript" of my ancestor's marriage at St Helier, Jersey - "Charles de Belin Esq native of Dublin and living in Valognes, Department of La Manche, Kingdom of France and Miss Sarah Spratt of the parish of St Martin Salisbury were married on the 28th day of June, 1830, by me Rich Mayne (or Hayne) - Curate"

Unfortunately, I don't have the details of how I received the transcript, but was wondering is it possible to actually obtain a copy or view the original? I have no doubt this my 3 x great grandfather and his second wife, however, I just need to confirm 2 details.

1) is his surname "de Belin" or "Belin"? This is the first record I've seen his name spelt "de Belin", this spelling then being continued on by his son and descendants, to present day.

2) is "Native of Dublin" correctly transcribed? All evidence I have is that he was either born in France or Channel Islands - "Dublin" has come out of nowhere!

Thank you

AVM228 - Thanks very much for obtaining that information.

Hmmm, looks as though "Native of Dublin" it is then - don't know where that came from? I presume "Native of" only means born there, not necessarily lived there? He was certainly French through and through, as was his son.

I did check Ancestry, and couldn't find it. Will have to go back for a more thorough look this time.

Regards

AVM228 - just tried Ancestry again for the marriage, and got it first go. Easy to search under "Sarah Spratt", than the French name of "Charles de Belin" - Ancestry doesn't like hyphenated surnames.

Thanks again.
