I can't make anything more of it yet,but the following must be more than coincidence:-

Following ShaunJ's second snippet,I have found a Matilda Dewalle in Blandford Street in 1851

HO 107/1488/467/8

In Alien Arrivals in 1846 there is an Emmanuel Van de Walle,described as a Belgian gent

In the 1837 reference for Lacolombe Hue he is travelling from Antwerp to Soho(later departures are from Cherbourg?)

Could be back to the drawing board,that Matilda may prove to be Matilda Deaville born 1831 to George and Charlotte in Leek,Staffs!

Still checking all Alien Arrivals for Hue. Many do not give a first name. Thank you for interpreting 16 Oct 1837 as Antwerp to Soho - I'd found it more or less illegible! On that one he signs as 'L. Hue' without umlaut.

For 17 Sep 1847 a Saturne Hue sails from Boulogne to Dover. Signed 'Hue'.

For 17 Jul 1948 Lacolombe sails from Boulogne to Dover and there is no signature.

For 19 Jul 1948 no departure port is given, he arrives at Dover. He signs as 'Lacolombe Hue' with umlaut.

Sure I've seen a fourth signature somewhere (just 'L. Hue') but for the life of me I can't remember where!

Possibly his passport was issued in northern France.

BTW: I've used Ancestry for some years now, but have just taken out a month's sub to FindMyPast after reading some posts upthread and using FamilySearch. FindMyPast finds Therese Hue in 1851 census and Westminster Rates data but Ancestry doesn't. However, I'm finding FindMyPast very clunky to use and it doesn't find any records for people I know full well existed and have dates for. Do you have any tips for using FindMyPast, please - what am I doing wrong?

The other record is under Sacolombe,I think.You may not be doing anything wrong,,different datasbase compilers read the originals and transcribe them differently-some of the handwriting is particularly difficult!

Adele (~1839/40?) and Mary (b. ~1844) might be worth a second look. I do not think that the records found for them in Manche are the right family - that Francois was a farmer at marriage, and the 1853 death is a different man I think (different wife) ( archives.manche.fr for the original civil records).

Also if "Mary" in 1851 and "Marie" in 1871 are the same, where is she in 1861?

The problem is that so many French records have not been indexed.

in the UK:
Adele Hue m. 1858 to Francois Ranvaud
she gives her birthplace as "Normandy" in 1861 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M7GS-H63 - I don't have access to the full) and 1911, but just France otherwise.
sister "Mary" could be the Marie/Maria Hue m. 1872 Westminster.  I think to Henri Jean:
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X3P7-P5B

Not sure what happened to Marie or her family after 1881 - they may have returned to France.

Also possibly relevant.
An E. Hue-Lacolombe ran some sort of boarding house at 108  rue de la Pépinière (8e Paris) between at least 1862 and 1864.   (http://gallica.bnf.fr/ ).  Not all the directories are up.
In 1861 "Huetlacombe" at the same address.
Not there in 1860.
