Hi,

In the 1676 French record, the family name is written LARCHIER. I think that the mother's family name is PROUST.

It's tricky to read the name, but I have the mother as Judith Groust.

Thanks David, but I don't think these are my Larchers.

I'm looking for a Philip and Mary Larcher, living in the Shoreditch area around 1781-1785

Hello

........



The second couple Josue and Esther, I cannot find a marriage for, but they had two children at least, Moise Larcher, baptised at Crispin Street, Spitalfields, East London 1701 and a daughter Esther Larcher baptised at West Street Church, Westminster, West London 1708. This is exactly the same baptimal pattern as Jacques son, Abraham. Further evidence of a link, Josue also stood as a witness to a marriage in the Leicester Fields church in 1793 same time Jacques was using it . Josue was certainly originally from Poitou too. He was a Merchant Distiller, and was admitted into the French Hospital London, where he died 1777. He gives the info he was the son of a Phillip Larcher of La Mothe, Poitou. Phillipe his father must have been in London too as he also died in the hospital 35 years earlier, 1743, aged 69. Phillipe was described as a member of the Huguenot congregation at Wandsworth, which I think is very significant and will come back to later.



The entries for the surname then seem to dry up in the French records.



Sorry, having just joined and reading the Larcher posts from the start I am a bit late with this comment, but here goes.....

There must be a second Phillipe either hidden in community or back in France because despite Josue saying his father was Phillipe it couldn’t have been the Phillipe that married Marie Broussard. Josue was having Moise and Esther around the same time as the 27yr old Philippe was marrying Marie. I always assumed the Phillipe who died in 1743 was the husband of Marie.

Also not sure why you think the Larcher line dries up in French records? There are trees back to 1500.
