Lacolombe Hue, French national
« on: Tuesday 31 March 15 21:46 BST (UK) »
I believe he may be my illegitimate great grandmother's biological father. She was Frances Hue b.1840 in Lee, Kent. Her mother Mary Solman later married a Philip Sayers. Her father was not named on her birth cert, but Frances names him on her marriage cert. as Lachome(sic) Hue (deceased). So far the only records found that might pertain to him have been found in the Aliens Arrival database showing a Lacolombe Hue travelling frequently between France and UK in 1830s and 40s. Can anyone please advise me as to where I might find out more about him?

Thank you in anticipation.

May be just a coincidence but FamilySearch has two entries for a Lacolombe Hue.  They are in the collection of Westminster Rate Books for the years 1850 and 1851.  Address given as Blandford Street but no image available nor further details.

The images are available with a subscription at FindMyPast.

They contain little in the way of genealogical information but he was paying rates at 15 Blandford Street, St Marylebone.

In the 1851 census Theresa Hues born France is enumerated as living there with Josh Glenier and Julia Galway.

In 1861 Thirsa Hue has moved on to 43 Somerset Street, she claims to be married and has a son Emmanuel and is running the address as a lodging house.

There seems a possibility that he appears mistranscribed on one major database as Lacolombe Hire working as a valet/butler in Portland Place,given as born 1815,France

Good find Roger, ties up nicely with the snippet of marriage cert posted on the other topic and he is still in the same registration/census area

Ancestry has him as Lacolcombe Keri

Thank you all so much for taking the trouble to find all this out for me. As you say, it ties up with the info on Frances' marriage certificate. I was interested to find out that the certificate was amended a few weeks after the marriage and her maiden name changed to Sayers (her step-father's name) and noted as an inadvertent error. I wonder what/who prompted this?

I've not before heard of Family Search so that's another avenue which will allow me to continue the search.

Again, thank you everyone.

It could be coincidence but in the 1851 census there is also a Mary Hue aged 7 at a Catholic School in the Marylebone area.Further in the 1871 census there is a Marie Hue of similar age staying as a sister in law with her sister Adele Ramand.It seems to me that these could be the children of,interestingly, a Francois Hue

https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3Ahue~%20%2Bbirth_place%3Afrance~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1820-1850~%20%2Bfather_givenname%3Afrancois~%20%2Bmother_givenname%3Aeugenie~%20%2Bmother_surname%3Aleclerc~

There are no instances of a Christian name Lacolombe given on Family Search other than the subject of this enquiry.As  Francois is given as from Cherbourg,Manche perhaps he channel hopped and used the name Lacolombe("the dove"?).

Regards
Roger

Yes, I agree, Roger, he could turn out to be a Francois. However, on the Alien Arrivals db he's shown to be in possession of a passport and signs himself as Lacolombe Hue. Wouldn't his details have been recorded as shown in his passport, but Lacolombe could be a middle name? So far unable to find Therese Hue in the 1851 census on Ancestry as suggested upthread. Now searching for some indication of his date of death - between 1851 and 1863.
