@Gan Yam - thanks for your info. It certainly appears humans have always been at the very least somewhat mobile throughout the entire existence of our race - travelling long distances and moving around isn't anything new that has come about only in the last century. We tend to think of it that way - that ordinary people in centuries gone by didn't or even weren't able to move about - but we are totally wrong.

As regards a larger image to show what is under the name of the town, there is no further information.  The next piece of writing is from the next person on the list who comes from Geneva.  His writing slopes up.

What may be of interest is that the entries on the page appear to have been individually done, so that could be the actual Villette, whichever he is, who has written it.

Looking at this, for a moment, I thought that you'd finally cracked it - but the date doesn't fit. Polite/Polette (etc) Villette married Rebecca Hull in 1858 I think and also their son P William Villette was born in 1858, too.

ADDED: Other than the date, everything else fits - he's even a tailor! :/

There is no reason though that he didn't go back and forward to europe at different times so he could have been over in 1857.  It only showing that journey.

Corrected link in PM still doesn't work for some reason.
Would you be so kind as to re-send it in a fresh PM?
Thank you :)

Hyppolite VILLETTE, tailor , and I think  it could be Montreuil. (miswritten , without the i)
There are several Montreuil in France.
