French Ancestors
« on: Sunday 07 January 18 04:56 GMT (UK) »
I have recently discovered my 4x great grand fathers father was Francis Feveyear b.1730. His parents were Robert Fevrier and Sarah Kerridge, they married on 3rd Oct 1718. I have found that Robert's father was Francios Fevrier b.23rd Nov 1660 in Brandonvillers,Marne, Champagne-Ardenne, France.
I would love it if anyone could find out more for me as I have hit a brick wall and would love to know more.
I thank you in advance and look forward to seeing any results.

Have you been online and verified these dates?

If so, you can expand your date searches and pickup siblings and otherfamily events.

Sorry to disappoint you, but the entry in the on line register definitely says the child baptised on 23 November is FrançoisE, daughter of Anthoine Febvrier and Anthoinette Vavray  (AD51 on line 2E 89/1 BMS 1574-1791 Brandonvilliers image 55/427). Where did you get your information from?  Looks like you could be on the right track though and you are so lucky the registers have survived all the wars in that part of France.
