Great, Thank you very much for Wiggy. I thought it was written September , but the writing is so difficult to decypher that i did not dare saying so.
Ok for Jeanne Sa(i)m(p)son being François's mother, but how do you know the name of his father?

Do you have access to the documents of the Société Jersiaise? I am looking for the list of the french protestants residing in Jersey in 1750. ( from the notes at the bottom of the page here:
https://www.cairn.info/revue-etudes-theologiques-et-religieuses-2006-2-page-183.htm)

Fantastic.

Hear hear!   :D 8)

Thank you so much - so I did find the correct marriage for Francois and Elizabeth and the correct baptism for Francois.  Thanks for all this information.   

I found three possible baptisms for Elizabeth Le Feuvre but don't know which is correct.

Also thanks for that extra member of the family Jaques - that explains the gap in the dates which I had between Elizabeth and  the children born in London.  Looks as if they moved to London between second and third child.

No Jober, I don't have subs to the Jersey site.  Currently I don't have subs anywhere, as I had slowed right down in my FH searching and have only just started again.    Might have to start paying up again but as this is a side line it may not be to Jersey. 

 I am very grateful indeed for your assistance, both you and La Grande-Méthe.    :D

Those links you have given are very interesting Jober.   

 The document I attached was sent to me by RichardE on Rootschat - as he is a historian, and was writing a book about the Huguenots at the time, I am not sure where he obtained the baptism document, but I understood it to be from some source in Jersey.  :)

I found a death record on FindMyPast for Elizabeth Le Sueur Le Vavasseur dit Durrell in Jersey in  18 Jan 1810 and wonder if it might be Francois' wife, gone back to Trinity, Jersey?

Not counting on it as there seem to be lots of Le Vavasseur dit Durrell families in Jersey.

The register entry for that death reads,

Mrs Elizabeth Le Sueur, widow of Mr Francois Le Maistre was buried on the 18th day. The entry page is dated January 1810.

I have no idea where they managed to get the Le Vavasseur dit Durrell from, the entry is in French so all I can think is that the transcribers didn't know that Vve is an abbreviation for Veuve (widow). The FindMyPast source does not seem to be very accurate, I stick to Ancestry for Jersey as they have images of the original records on the site.

Thanks for that clarification La Grande-Méthe - I will rub that one out then!   ;) 

I was so unsure I hadn't added it to the tree!
