His death in France in 1861 would explain a few things: Why the last British record we have of him is in 1859 on the occasion of his son William's baptism and also why there is no British death record for him. It also explains why, in the 1861 UK Census, wife Rebecca and son William are shown as having moved to Gretton, Northamptonshire living with Rebecca's brother John Hull - with no mention of (Hyp)polite on the record.

Well done, Joger. Your hard work does now appear to have paid off. Thank you for the slides. Is there any more info on (Hyp)polite Villette on the slide in which is mentioned? Anything about him being a tailor?

I agree with Neale1961, the only confusing thing now is the 1866 workhouse record.

Added: Someone further back in this post did say, I think, that in the 1871 Census Rebecca is stated as a "widow". Although she was not living with her brother John Hull and son William Villette at this time.

As I said in a preceding post , it is written  that he was a tailor.

Something I suppose we'll never know the answer to is why he is recorded as being single at the time of his death.

Thanks, Joger. This clarifies that the Hyppolite Villette you have found is indeed my great-great-great grandfather. Charles and Amy (Aimée) Villette - Hyppolite's brother and sister-in-law who were witnesses at his wedding to Rebecca Hull.

I honestly can't thank you enough for your hard work. :)

The death was registered by 2 persons , their relation with Hippolyte is not mentionned ( neighbours ? ) May be they did not kow that Hippolyte was married , or he did not mention that he married in England .

Why is the surname written sometimes Villet or Villette in the north ? It is written VILLET (as it is written in the south ) when they had to show a copy of their birth certificate  (for a marriage ).
It is written Villette when they did not have to show a copy of their birth certificate ( for the birth of a child ).
