Basic geneanet is free, only Premium is paying.

Wiggy , may I ask who is the last Le Vavasseur Dit Durell (dit means aka), or Durell (or Durel) you are certain of?
Added : and who is the last ancestor , not a sibbling.

Elizabeth Durrell, daughter of Francois and Elizabeth, married my GGGgrandfather Thomas Ransom.  I know they had two daughters.  That is all as Thpomas Ransom was a convict and sent to Australia and didn't see that family again. 

I managed to trace his two English daughters, but my family comes from a son he had in Australia, so Elizabeth Durrell born 1755 is my direct contact - but not my GGGgrandmother.

Yes I understaind Durrell is what they were 'called'.   :)

Elizabeth (le Vavasseur dit DURELL) was born before 1755 , you don't know  where .
Her father is said to be François (or Francis) Le Vavasseur (dit  Durell) and her mother Elizabeth Le Feuvre ( or le Fevre, Lefevre ,Lefebvre or Lefebure )
She married a Thomas RANSOM in London Shoreditch 1776, and died in 1836 in Bethnal Green , London. This couple had 2 girls. You suppose that Thomas is your ancestor , a convict transported to Australia.
Am I right?

Added: I have just read the Ransom file. Very interesting.

Here are some sites explaning the relation between french huguenots and Jersey

Correct - and thanks for those links.   ;)   

I have a baptism for Elizabeth from Jersey - a very battered document sent to me by Richard who was doing a lot of research into the Huguenots at the time and was a great help - (as you will have noticed Jober  ;) )  Not easy to see the date - apart from 21st April (Can't make out year)   It seems the family then moved to London where the rest of the family was born.

The births I have found on FindMyPast yesterday refer to her mother I believe.

so Elizabeth isn't really my family - I am just interested.

I decipher : Elizabeth daughter of Francis le Vavasseur ... Durell and Elizabeth Le Feuvre his wife , was baptized the 21 st Day of ...
I'm not sure about April but I cannot decipher at all the year , unfortunately.
May be the year is not written at all , it is to be found upwards , a few pages before.

What was the origin of the document ?

Francois Le Vavasseur dit Durell married Elizabeth Le Feuvre in St Helier on 8 Jan 1758. Their son Jacques was baptized in St Helier on 15 Dec 1758. His baptism record shows his godparents as Jacques Mauger (Uncle) and Jeanne Samson (Grandmother). Elizabeth was baptized in St Helier on 21 Sept 1760, her godparents were Pierre Power and Elizabeth Richardson his wife.

This would make Pierre Le Vavasseur and Jeanne Sam(p)son the parents of Francois
