where the Larchers have been discussed.

Rootschatter richarde1979 posted an image of the register showing the birth of Philippe Larcher 15 May 1676, son of Jacques Larcher and Judith Groust.

The difficulty has been tracking the Larchers through the 1700s when some records were lost. (particularly with the number of Andrew Jacques and John Larchers who crop up.  The general consensus in 2013 seemed to be that a probable line could be established for the Larchers, but that this could not be proved for certain due to lost records.

richarde1979 did amazing work piecing together surviving church records and linking them to records from the French Hospital, but I still have only a provisional tree supported by fragments of hard evidence.

I have been looking for Rebecca (Judith) (MARTLEY?) on church registers and transcripts on various freesites - but no success yet.

All the best
Philip

Andrew Larcher definitely had several children with Rebecca.  Their marriage is still proving elusive, as is her birth.  But I have come up with a new idea.  Rebecca's surname has been transcribed as MARTLEY, but on the certificate of Thomas Mark Larcher's birth I believe it looks more like HARTLY.  (The shape of the letter M in the document is different).

To avoid duplication, there are other Larcher threads for this line:

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=687877.msg6183906#msg6183906
concentrating on finding birth and marriage for Rebecca Judith Martley(Hartley?)

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=91844.msg4804466#msg4804466
concentrating on the Larcher line back to Poitou (thread started in 2007 with lots of information)

This is my tree with regards to the French Huguenots, I'm going back from my Great grandmother.

ALICE JESSIE KIGHT BORN 1876
Her mother
MARY ANN WATLEY Born 1841 Whitechapel   married Francis Kight
Her mother
HARRIET LARCHER Born 1811 Shoreditch      marriedThomas Watley
Her father
ANDREW LARCHER Born 1777 Shoreditch  married Rebecca Judith Martley ?
His father
JOHN LARCHER  Born 1740 Wandsworth  married  Anne Richards ?
His father
ANDREW LARCHER born 1713 Wandsworth  married  Anne Field ?
His father
PHILLIPE LARCHER Born 1676 in Poitou Charentes  married  Marie Brossard ?
His father
JAQUES LARCHER Born abt 1650 in Poitou Charentes  married Judith Groust ?

Can someone have a look at this and tell me if I have this right please?

Also I'm pretty sure about the men as have looked at records etc for them but I am unsure about the women that they married, particularly the ones with the question marks by.

Thanks in advance.

Karen
