Title: Le Gallez family
Post by: CarolG on Thursday 07 December 06 10:10 GMT (UK)
I have quite a good family tree for the Le Gallez family - which I would be delighted to share if anyone needs my info.

Someone has asked me about a MORNINGTON LE GALLEZ.  I do remember this family being mentioned as distant cousins, but I've no idea where they fit in.  There were two or three of them with 'odd' names.  I wonder if anyone else may have come across them.

Any information would be gratefully received.

Hi! I'm new to this forum but maybe we can help each other.
I'm searching my husbands family..Le Patourel... and his great grandfather - Joseph Eli Le Patourel (b/a 1894) was married to a Isabel Alexander Florence May Le Gallez. Unfortunately Joseph was illegitimate. I was wondering do you have any other info on them?

I have checked through all the names I have connected to my tree and I'm sorry to say I have nobody by the name of Isabel Le Gallez.  Sorry I cannot help you on this occasion.

Kind regards, Carol.

Thanks for your reply. I was told that some people used their middle name sometimes so I thought that i'd ad more info that i forgot last post the i have learnt of; the Isabel i spoke of was born about 23/1/1902 and she and Joseph (possibly called James) were married about 19/9/1918 i know they had at least one child named James Alfred b/a 1920 d 1979 married to a Edith May Duport.
Does this help?
I know it's long shot but my head hurts from the brick wall i've hit.
Thanks again.

I haven't had any luck with the names for Isabel.  However, I have found a Joseph Le Patourel who was living in Guernsey in the 1901 Census.  The family are listed as John LP (head)(age 65)...dock worker, wife Elizabeth, (age 60)...charwoman, Selina Le Patourel (age 22)...charwoman and Leonora Le Patourel (age 20),...dressmaker.   Joseph LP is grandson (age 7) and Emily granddaughter (age 2 months).  The children are named as Le Patourel, and the daughters are both listed as single?  Don't know if this helps.  I might be barking up the wrong tree entirely of course.

Know what you mean about brick walls too.....I've come across a few since I started with this hobby!

Hi CarolG,
Yes this is my husbands GGGF and the Joseph (Grandson) is his GGF and you may gather the grandson was fathered by his own GF (John) now this is where i'm stuck as Joseph married Isabel but we can't find them anywhere on the census to see if there were any other children that they had, also I can't find out who John (GGGF) parents are I think the father's name was Pierre but i have no dates. This is very annoying as I know that it all links up somehow but I can't make the connection yet.

Hope to hear from you again, Simone

Post by: CarolG on Sunday 06 May 07 12:48 BST (UK)
Simone, I have been looking through Ancestry.co.uk and found that there are lots of spelling mistakes where the names are listed.  I found one of mine under one of them.  I have tried all the combinations of the names you have given for Isabel but no luck I'm afraid.  Should I come across anything I will of course post it for you. 

Kind regards, Carol.
Title: Re: Le Gallez family
Post by: SimoneLe on Sunday 06 May 07 13:06 BST (UK)
Hi.
Yes CatOne has been helping me too and has advised me of this problem. I took her advise and i'm now seaching other spellings of Le Patourel.
Unfortuneatly i'm not subscribed to Ancestry so my searching is limited do you know if the subscription price is in pounds as i'm in Australia and would need to convert it.
Simone.
Title: Re: Le Gallez family
Post by: CarolG on Sunday 06 May 07 15:06 BST (UK)
Yes I paid in £ sterling.  I guess they would just do a conversion when you applied. 

I know the spelllings are quite off in some cases as I come from Guernsey originally and know so many of the surnames, but if you go and look at the actual census page it's there.  Are you certain the name was Isabel?  I have found a Mabel and in the handwriting that could be mistaken for Isabel.  The plot thickens lol.  Good luck with it.

Kind regards, Carol.
Title: Re: Le Gallez family
Post by: SimoneLe on Sunday 06 May 07 15:38 BST (UK)
lol yes i think the plot has turned into lumpy custard ;D
I got that full name of Isabel from my husbands uncle who is still in Guernsey and the Prialux Libary confirm the marrage which was at the Town Church 19/9/1918 mind you Joseph's mum used her middle name Rachel on some of the forms maybe Isabel did too.

Post by: SimoneLe on Sunday 13 May 07 11:23 BST (UK)
I wish to advise all that read this post that no discredit or disrespect to any families mentioned in this post was intentionally meant.
Upon learning new information I realised that the afore mentioned fathering of Joseph Le Patourel by his grandfather Jean (John) Le Patourel was wrong and I should not have posted that information unless I was 100% certain.
Sorry for any anguish caused.
Simone.

Hi CarolG

I am new to researching the Le Gallez tree as I am doing it on behalf of a friend whose maiden name is Le Gallez.

Could you tell me if you have a George Maurice Le Gallez (my friends father) born 1936 St Peter Port Guernsey in your tree and if you do, could you tell me what other information you have on this family.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Jan

Maurice's dad was called William.  Would be so cool if we were related as my family is very small.

Hi Everybody!
I have been researching my family tree for many years and was pleased and surprized to find the Le Gallez listing. I am hoping that someone can help me with my Le Gallee, Le Gallie, Le Gallais, etc. family. I have found so many different spellings of the name!
I am also seeking info about the Le Vallee family of Alderney. Rachel Le Vallee b 1807 Alderney was the daughter of Paul LeVallee and Marie Herivel. My families emigrated to Canada.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Jan, I haven't been on here for some considerable time, but have been playing around with my tree recently and came across your question.

I do have George Maurice Le Gallez b 1936 in my tree and have recently made contact with his son Christopher Le Gallez who has been working on his tree.  There was another brother Harold who I knew very well as I was growing up.  There were two girls Ada Anne and Phyliss May, but I don't know anything about them.

George Maurice's father was George Henry and he was my grandmother's nephew.  George Henry's father was Harold James Le Gallez - gran's brother.  He was a sailor in the Royal Navy. 

This part of the family was descended from James George Le Gallez - his father was James Henry Le Gallez.

Hope this little bit of info helps you in your search.  If I can help any more, please let me know.
Regards, Carol

yes - but apparently I'm not allowed to post those details on this website, so I guess I need to pursue a different route of enquiry.

Thanks for your response anyway.

I think my grandfather was one of Isabel's sons. I'm not sure if he was Joseph's son as I believe she was married more than once, but I thought she gave all her kids her maiden name. My dad believe's that we should be Le Patourel, but we're Le Gallez because of this. My grand father was Stanley, my father Stephen James. My grandmother is still alive and may be able to shed some light?

Hi All,

I am new to the forum but am researching the Le Gallez family as part of my ancestry...

*Please note this information is a little vague as I haven't updated this resource for some time. The jpeg file attached has more accurate lineage information (hopefully you can read it).

Le GALLEZ      Esther

b. abt 1813      Guernsey, Channel Islands

d. 8/4/1875      Prospect, South Australia

m. approx. 1833      Guernsey, Channel Islands.

EDWARDS      George
   *Became a cordwainer, i.e. a cutter of leather   uppers – a shoe maker

b. 15/1/1814      Parish of Charles, Plymouth,         Devonshire, England

d. 23/4/1872      Adelaide, South Australia

   *George and Esther arrived in South Australia,   on the sailing ship Moffat on 19/12/1839.

My Le Gallez line also contains the following families: Queripal, Herival and Gore and all seem to be from Guernsey...

Before I go trolling through Census records and alike - does anyone have any information on these families? If you are part of these families I can provide you with information regarding their descendants in South Australia :)

Thanks

George Edwards and Esther Le Gallez would be my 4th great grandparents.
So I'm another south Australian product of the same family.
I'd appreciate any information you have so I can compare notes. The family tree is only a recent hobby for me, my uncle has oodles of information however he is taking pleasure watching my frustration.
Cheers.
