This first reference gives a fuller name

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FR6G-VJD

Perhaps this is his death in 1853?

There is/was a family using the surnames Hue de La Colombe or Hue La Colombe
It seems an unusual first name (Colombe does appear occasionally in French records as a girl's name).

In the Aliens Arrival database, when he's travelling back and forth, is there any indication of which port he normally travelled from? It may be possible to track down who would hold his passport records. (I believe it depends on where it was issued, I know the Gironde archives have some online).

In April 1850 he rented out the house  at 15 Blandford Street, Portman Square to a Charles Harvey at 40 per annum for use as a loan and investment society office. Harvey turned out to be a swindler named Charles Stanley, alias Dixon. Lacolombe Hue gave evidence on this at Bow Street court in May 1850. See London Daily News 18 May 1850, page 6, final column.

There is a death of a Francois Hue aged 58 in 1870 in the Pancras registration district.This could be a fit for the father of Marie and Adele,but would rule him out(?)as being synonymous with Lacolombe who is given as deceased on an earlier marriage certificate.

In the Morning Post 26 September 1850 "Une jeune francaise" is advertising (in French) for a position as a governess. Mdlle "MD" was living with her mother "Chez Mme Hue, 15 Blandford Street".

The "u" in Hue is written with a trema (2 dots over it like an umlaut). That also appears on the 1848 Alien Arrivals signature.

Goodness, such a lot of info in less than 24 hours - thank you all!

It'll take me a while to sort it all out but I think it is confirmed that his first name must be Lacolombe (it's not a nickname) and that 15 Blandford Street, W1, was his residence - at least he paid the rates for 1850/51. Still looking for a date of death. What are the Gironde archives?

Wendy

The departmental archives of Gironde (the department where Bordeaux is)
Their online search has various indexes including some passport records:
http://gael.gironde.fr/

There are some for "Hue" (easiest way - go to Recherche dans les passeports and search in "text libre" box). However, this only covers passports issued in Gironde.

If he had a passport, it could have been issued in one of the coastal departments (depending where he sailed from - that's why I asked) - or in his home location.  It might give us a home town for him if we could turn one up.
