Do you have or need the Probate  record for him?

A 2nd child  here maybe ?

Hi

According to his Will, Lewis had two wives, the first also a Mary, surname looks like Wallaton/
Vallaton.

Also have you considered Louis MARTINANT from France??

ADDED  also mentions a TOUSSAINT in his Will

Can anyone find his marriage?

St George's Chapel, Mayfair
2 October 1746
Mr Louis Martimant & Mrs Mary Valenton of St Martins Westm(inste)r

All the brides on this page of the marriage register are recorded as 'Mrs' -- it doesn't indicate she was a widow.

The Mayfair Chapel was famous for 'clandestine' marriages.

Burial Index
St James Westminster
Middlesex

Mary MARTINANT buried 5th Nov 1780

Could be his first wife??

Also..

Marriage Index
St James Westminster
9th Aug 1768

TOUSSAINT James
MARTINANT Mary

So the James TOUSSAINT mentioned in the Will of Lewis MARTINNANT could have been either a son in law or a brother in law.

Have found several records of children born to a Peter Lewis MARTINANT in Westminster early 1800s.

Thank you all,I did find his will through Ancestry but parts of it was unreadable.I was told that "Martinnant" is a Huguenot name so maybe Louis Martinnant of France is my correct ancestor.
I found Peter Lewis Martinnant married to Jane Gwyllym 3 October 1799 Dover in Kent. Could you tell me how I can find out their occupations,please.I found an Apprentice indenture for Lewis,he took on board  Elizabeth Pasmore 11 March 1765 as a Milliner.My ancesters are Pinnell,Stent.Hughes and Martinnant.
Thanks again.
Maggie
