Oops, they're my 4th great grandparents. Their descendants in my line were Francis Berteau of Twillingate, Newfoundland, his son Albert, his son Frédéric (my grandfather). Was Jean a sea captain or military captain? I assume sea captain.
Thank you, Carol

Hi Carol,

Looks like we are the same status.Jean was a sea captain.Francis was sent here, Nfld, from Jersey to look after business interests on the south coast in a place called the Jersey rooms and later moved to Twillingate where he was a magistrate.He is my great,great grandfather.Here is where we diverge.I decended from his son Francis Cyrus,and my Grandmother,Enid.The Berteau name is gone here ,but there are some cousins etc with other names.I have some old things from them,paintings etc,I assume (the paintings)  are from Thomas.The old house of Francis still stands in Twillingate and believe it or not some of the interior decoration is stiil there.I saw it several years ago.What country do you live in?
 Bob.

Hi Bob, I'm familiar with Francis C. and Enid. Yes, I've seen pics of Twillingate, but didn't know it still had some furnishings. Very cool. I have one painting Thomas did of the Fisher Girl. A duplicate is hanging in the Jersey museum. I'm in California. I've only come across two cousins on the Berteau side and not through Ancestry DNA. You may know of one of them because I think she was a  Francis C. descendant. Please send a private message if you'd like to correspond further.
Thanks!
