My family are as follows: I have also done ancestry and Ftdna. Welcome your help, discoveries, hints and ideas.

Louis Poucle (1766 - 1820) = m = Anne Coutanche (1768-?)

Hi Murray

There is a reference at Jersey Archive to a criminal case involving Louis Poucle in the late 1700's. You will need a subscription to view it (and a knowledge of French).

There are 51 references to Pouclee.
