Lookup Please Marriage in London - Nicholas CARON 1750s?
« on: Sunday 18 October 20 06:54 BST (UK) »
Seeking please an entry of marriage between the following people:

Nicholas CARON (or possible Le CARON due to Huguenot descent). Born Bolbec, Normandy, France c. 1731, to Sara (possibly Sarah) EMERSON. DOB unknown.

The couple settled down to live around the Threadneedle Street area of London. Their first child Louis Guillaume was born in 1759.

Thank you cheers, Rob

Only items found so far on ancestry

Paying for apprentices 23 March 1763  address Old Artillery Grounds- Weaver app Grace Cooke
 and on 27 June 1763 same address apprentice Elizabeth Nightingale.

Sarah Carron buried 5 October 1774 age 56 address Petticoat Lane at Christ Church Spitalfields
if this is your Sarah then she had the children late in life with Louis 1759 she would have been about 40.

Is it possible she had been married before and was a widow when she married the non conformist records giving her maiden name.

London Lives 1680-1810

Nicholas Caron of Lamb Street Spitalfields, Linen Draper and Hosier posted bail for Henry Dearn charges with assault September 1769.

Carpenters Company Minute Books
2 May 1780 William Caron son of Nicholas Caron Linen Draper and Hosier of Christ Church Spitalfields apprentice as a carpenter to John Scott

The index makes it look like his name is Scott William Caron you can enlarge it and it reads as above.

Notes
Do you have the still birth of Nicholas Caron buried 24 August 1762 at Christ Church Spitalfields.
Address of Artillery Grounds
The address matches the 2 apprentice records of 1763

Thanks Amondg,

This is wonderful information on Nicholas Caron's family. No, I was not aware of Nicholas Caron's (junior) death in 1762. Not sure about the Scott William Caron reference. Is Artillery Grounds a house address or rather a group of houses?

Cheers,
Rob

It is interesting that the IGI shows a Sarah Caron christened at Christ Church Spitalfields in 1734 but this would mean that she was about 40 in 1774! So maybe not my Sarah but very tempting to question whether the age given was accurate? Rob

She would not have been Sarah Caron in 1734 she would be Sarah Emerson

Old Artillery Grounds are an area in Spitalfields ref: Wikipedia there are photo's and a more lengthy description.

Huguenot Church
Louis Caron born 29 April 1759
Nicholas William born 28 December 1763
William born 10 March 1766
ADDED
Sara born 12 August 1774
Jean Emerson born 17 March 1776 (aka John)

Christ Church Spitalfields
Still born child Nicholas Caron buried 24 August 1762

William Caron son of Nicholas was apprenticed as a Carpenter to John Scott 2 May 1780 he would have been 14 the usual age to begin an apprenticeship.

Hi almondg yes of course she would have been baptised an Emerson!

Thanks for the information on Artillery Grounds too.

Cheers
