LE VAVASSEUR/DURRELL in Jersey
« on: Saturday 24 November 18 23:42 GMT (UK) »
I am wondering if I can get any further back on this Huguenot branch of my family.

So far I have got to Jersey and some Huguenot ancestors who went to Jersey to carry on their trade of ?weaving.

This thread has a little more information but not much.  It is really about daughter Elizabeth's family in England.

https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.ph p?topic=456497.msg3210044#msg3210044

The names I am looking for are Francois Le VAVASSEUR  /dit DURRELL who married  (I presume) Elizabeth Le FEUVRE sometime before 1755 I think - al least their daughter Elizabeth was born then and all other children I have listed come after her.

Children in the family are
Elizabeth  1755 - Married 1778 Thomas RANSOM, Shoreditch England -  died 1836 Bethnal green
Marie 1763,
Francois Thomas 1764
Margueritte 1769
Pierre Henry 1770
Jean 1773
Jeanne 1780

I would love to be able to go back to the births, marriage and deaths of Francois and Elizabeth.   (parents of this tribe.)   Maybe in France, or maybe in Jersey.

Also  - there is a long gap between Elizabeth and the next recorded child.   :-\

The later children were all Baptised in the French Huguenot church in Threadneedle Street  London.  Would the move to England account for the gap in children -  maybe?

I haven't had to look in Europe before so am not sure where/how to start.  Any pointers gratefully received.

Just found what might be Francois Le Vavasseur's birth 1738, and marriage, both in Jersey, so will ask for this thread to be moved to UK maybe.

Marriage in St Helier, Jersey  1758 could well explain the gap in the births!!

Hi Garstonite

What year did they leave France?   . . . . .  No idea. I just believe they were Huguenots. Francois and Elizabeth's children were baptised in the French Huguenot church in London, and Madeleine, granddaughter, applied for admission to the Huguenot Hospital in London in the 1800s.

I think I may have found Francois' birth in St Helier in 1738,

- and I may have found Elizabeth's birth, also in St Helier.   
I don't know how to decide between them - one is daughter of Pierre and Jeanne  born 1737 - both names used for her children,
and the other possibility is born 1736 daughter of Henry - also used for one of her children. ( think I have them round the right way)

There seem to be lots of Le Vavasseur dit Durrell in St Helier, and lots of Le Feuvres also, so I am clutching at anything for the time being.

Thanks for your links and interest - cannot see anything really ringing bells yet, but still looking.
