The Common Room / Re: Is MOUCHET a French surname ?

Six years later and i have finally found Samuel Mouchet's burial. He was buried on the 14th May 1836 at St Mark, Kennington, age 41, of Regency Place. That puts his birth abt 1795.

Also a Mary Ann Mouchet was buried there 27th May 1838 age 83 of White Hart Street. Mary must be the widow of Henry Ann Mouchet who died in 1788.

I am starting to believe that Samuel was the illigitimate son of that Mary. Also Caroline & Joseph Mouchet mentioned in this thread were possibly illigitimate children of Mary as well. (Samuel named one of his daughters Caroline).

Still looking for Samuel's baptism & marriage. It may take another six years though !

I ordered the 1852 death certificate of Sarah.

It states that she was the widow of Samuel Mouchet a Painter. She died at 43 Regency Place, White Hart Street. Sarah is living at 18 Regency Place in the 1851 census.

Can someone please lookup number 43 Regency Place in 1851 to see who was living at that address. There may be a family connection there.

Hello Andy

Thank you for the information you have provided.

My grandad's name was George Richard Sturges born 1912 at Garlinge. He lived at the children's home at Manston which is where Fleet Farm was.

Perhaps your family might recognize his name seeing as he was a friend of R J Fasham or another member of your family as stated on the back of the photo.

I am glad i was able to confirm to you that your Josiah was the same man.

Thanks for the further info on Josiah and his family. Very interesting. I often wondered why Josiah was born in America.

Yes Josiah was in the workhouse in the 1901 census. My Eliza also died in the Workhouse in London 1906.

It makes you wonder if they knew eachother both lived in London or kept in touch after the bigamy case ?

Hello alexnlp

Yes, Josiah Mercer (a Tailor) born America who is living with his brother William in Barnacle is the same Josiah who married my Eliza Bolton nee Bushell. He is indeed living in London in later censuses. Same as my Eliza.

I have the marriage record of Eliza & Josiah. They married at St Peter & Paul, Aston, Warwickshire, and Josiah states that he is a bachelor age 21 a Tailor from Duddeston. He names his father as Joseph Mercer a Tailor. This matches the 1841 census info.

I have found some newspaper reports of the case. They state that the 2nd husband was Josiah Mercer. None of them state Josiah's age or profession etc. I have not read any court record's of the case if they exist ?

I have not been able to trace the 1st husband (My 3x G Grandfather) William Bolton after the 1851 census.

Interestingly my Eliza is known as Eliza Bolton alias Mercer on a record i have found dated 1897 !

Hello Stigs

Your info on Thomas Stiggers confirms that there must of been two Joseph Mouchet/Mouchat's living in Lambeth at the same time. The burial in 1848 must of been the other Joseph Mouchat and not your Joseph who married Harriet King. I don't know when your Joseph died. I can't find your Joseph & Harriet on the 1851 census either.

I am not sure how your Joseph is related to my Mouchet family. Your Joseph & Harriet and their children are living with my Mouchet family in the 1841 census. My Mouchet family in that census are mother Sarah and her three children Sarah, Henry, Caroline. Mother Sarah was born about 1792 in Cripplegate, London. Father Samuel Mouchet is not on that census. I presume he died before 1841.

I have not found a baptism, marriage or burial for father Samuel so far. I have not got any further back from him in the Mouchet line. I do however believe that our Mouchet's are related to Henry Ann Mouchet mentioned in a previous message in this thread. Henry Ann Mouchet's family came from Colombier, Neuchatel, Switzerland.

I would like to see those Mouchat birth certificates. I will send you a personal message with my email address.

Hello Valda

Sarah & Caroline's brother Henry marries Sophia Coleman on the 17th May 1846 in Kennington. He also names his father as Samuel. I found that marriage on the Family Search website index.

I have not got Samuel's wife Sarah's death certificate. That is an excellent idea. She died in 1852. I will definately order that now.

I have that Joseph Mouchet as an older sibling of my Sarah at the moment.

There is a Joseph Mouchat buried in 1848 Lambeth age 41. If this is him then his mother Sarah would of been about 15 when she had him.

There is also a Joseph Mouchat who was a witness to the marriage of Caroline Sarah Robberds (daughter of Caroline Mouchet) in 1840 Lambeth. His signature and spelling are different to the Joseph Mouchet who married Harriet King though.
