Hello Patricia,


My 5th great grandparents were Pierre Jacob Carey born abt 1706 and Marye Du Chattel born about 1714.

I have been told that Pierre (and maybe Marye)were, or descended from, French Huguenots.

Variations of the name are Carree and Carre.

Their children were apparently christened in Walloon Or Strangers Church, Canterbury Kent England.

I would love to trace them before they arrived in England, if possible and was wondering if you would mind looking for me, if you have time.

Thankyou,
Regards
Margaret :)

Margaret -

I am researching Huguenot forebears too, and have just checked out all the IGI batch numbers for marriages and baptisms in the "French" churches.

The batch for the Canterbury Walloon or Strangers Church reveals children of Pierre and Marye - some definite, with full names of both parents, and some a bit woollier but possibles.

You can find the relevant batch here:

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hughwallis/IGIBatchNumbers/CountyKent.htm#PageTitle

With my family, I came up against a brick wall around the 1750's - only to later discover that was because they did not come to England until after 1744! You may have the same situation.

May I chime in too?

I'm looking for Dure, which I am told in a letter dated 1925 was originally Duree (acute accent on the first e).  There was probably some other sort of spelling system that came before the accents were invented, whenever that was.  Do you have anything like that on the CD, Patricia?

thanks.

Hello Loo,
I have found one reference to the name Duree. No accent  ::)  but that is probably in the printing/typing mechanism.
If you get back past 1618 then he will have arrived in the British Isles before the Huguenots arrived.
 Best of luck  :)                Patricia 8)

Thank you, Patricia.  I have only just begun suspecting they were Huguenots in the last few weeks.  I never really thought about it before, but several things seem to fit.

So far I have only been able to go back as far as the censuses and the family letter will allow me, which is about 1780.  It is a small family, and they seem to all be in Devon, which is where the 1925 letter tells me they were from.  This letter also says there was just one of them who originally came from France, "a French officer", so I guess that would fit with your one entry, although I don't know when that person came to England. 

Am I right in assuming that your list is of original refugees?  Can you tell me if there is any more information on that one entry.  Is it just a list of surnames, each one accounting for one individual, or are there any forenames or other clues?  Can you tell me where this list originates?

thanks very much for your help,
Loo.

Hello Loo  :)
I have sent you a PM.
Have a look at this site. The French invasion of Fishguard, which took place in southwest Wales in 1797. This may of course be a tad too late for you, but there was an easy sea route across from South Wales to Devon.

http://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryUK/Wales-History/Fishguard.htm
See my previous post for all the details on the CD. It is a copy of two books with full details of Immigrants and their families . Every entry is indexed.
Hope this is of help to you.

Yes, I think it's a little late for my folks.  Interesting little story though!
