Hocquard - Esther
« on: Monday 07 November 11 01:42 GMT (UK) »
Hi. Would it be possible for someone do a lookup for me for the parent details for Esther Hocquard Baptised 1713 at Trinity, not sure of the Month or day. Esther married Amice Hubert on 5 June 1734.
Thanks so much ;)

The only Esther Hocquard baptisms in the Trinity register are,

1) 20/7/1707 Ester, daughter of Renau, godparents Ch Bisson and Ester Gruchy his wife
2) 7/2/1719 Ester, daughter of Mathieu, godparents NicolasCabot and Ester Nicolle

Looking at some of the baptisms of Esther and Amice's children this one springs out,

21/2/1740 Esther, daughter of Amice Hubert and Esther Hocquard, godparents RENAULT Hocquard and Eliz Gruchy, his wife.

There are also 2 Amice Hubert baptisms
1) 5/3/1703 Amice, son of Amice, godparents Clem Hubert and Susanne Vaudin his wife - just checked burials, this one died 6/3/1703
2) 14/5/1709 Amyce, son of Amyce, godparents Amyce Maret and Eliz Hemmelin his wife

The marriage you have is correct.

Esther Hocquard, widow of Amice was buried 23/5/1774

Hi Jerseylilly thank you so much for your reply. Renault and Elizabeth were the two I also thought could have been Esthers parents since they are the godparents of one of her children and were Hocquard's. I did also wounder if Renault may have been her brother? Were there any siblings for Esther that might help to confirm? I think Renault's mother may have been Esther le Masurier so this may be were the name Esther came from. Thank you so much Lisa
