    3. Thanks for the notification. My interests are: DETURK/DETURCK: France, Germany, Pennsylvania-US DEHARCOURT: France, London-UK, New York-US, Pennsylvania-US Email is anne.hartley at gmail dot com Wondering if anyone else is being spammed by someone named Jon Wicken? His name shows up on old posts I have saved, and he's a persistent, abusive spammer using different ISPs, probably through a VPN. I've reported him every time I get spammed, but he keeps coming back, like an unwanted fungus.

    2. Lynne
    3. Hello out there! The end of RootsWeb lists is just around the corner. If you want to make sure anyone reading the archives in future can find you, be sure to post your interests (surnames in all caps; first names, dates, and locations if you chose) and your munged email address to the RootsWeb lists to which you subscribe before 29 February. There are now hundreds of lists/groups on Groups.io that have moved from RootsWeb. You can search for a group at https://groups.io/ and then click on "Find or Create a Group." Many RootsWeb admins have added the word "RootsWeb" to the descriptions of their new groups, so if your first attempt doesn't find the right group, trying adding the keyword RootsWeb to your search. There's also a group just to announce new family research lists, RootsWeb Announce. Search the messages there to find a group. It's been a pleasure administering this list. I hope to see many of you on Groups.io or on the Ancestry/RootsWeb message boards. Take care and best of luck with your research.

    2. Hi Chris, Hope you are well! If you are still active in this area - please see my post from December 2019 - searching for the Laurence/Laurens family from Rouen - what is the best way to access the Quevilly data - as most of their children and marriages seem to have been celebrated there? With many thanks Jonathan

    1. [HWE] Laurens family of Rouen
    2. I am researching my wife's family descended from the Laurens of Rouen (spelt variously Laurence, Lawrence (In england). We have records on Ancestry that go back to Thomas 1583-1653 (born and died in Rouen), and his eldest son Marc, who was naturalised English in 1660. Other sons, Pierre also moved to London (St Stephen Walbrook) while the third son THomas stayed in Rouen. Many baptismal and marriage records at the Temple of Queville, but also at French and City of London Churches. The Laurens family married various other Huguenot and Walloon protestants - Delau, Bulteel, Du Quesne, but does not appear to have survived as a family name descending from this line of drapers in Rouen. I'd be interested to know of other research, in particular whether the emigration was economic or religious - the fact that father and younger brother stayed suggests the former. Marc's son Benjamin (1663-1745) spend time working for Samuel Bulteel in Porto, with other Laurens family, and married Elizabeth Bulteel in 1719. Any insights into merchant life in 17th century also welcome (i have research from Pedro de Brito which is excellent and can share). Many thanks Jonathan

    1. [HWE] early ancestors in Kent
    2. tamiwell
    3. Hello everyone : ) I’m new to the list. I’m trying to track down the origins of my family line with the surname DUBESSIS/DUBESSES which seems to have become DEVESON. They lived between Canterbury and Sandwich in Kent and seem to have originated (in the parish records) in STAPLE Kent. The earliest ancestor I know of was JOHN DUBESSES who would have been born most likely in the 1520’s. He first appears baptising children from 1550 in Staple in Kent. Another researcher at some stage in the past seems to have passed on to a few people (who have their trees on ancestry) that John married an AGNES BORDEN in 1548. I can’t find proof of that anywhere though but there is a death for an Agnes in Staple in 1570 and she must have been his first wife, as he re marries to a Luce/Lucie, has 3 more children with her and they both die in 1584. He leaves a will mentioning his children born prior to the marriage with Luce, so I’m thinking that the marriage to Agnes Borden is likely correct but I don’t know where it could have been found. I wondered if perhaps there were some Church records for the Huguenot/Walloon immigrants to England somewhere and whether it’s there... I was told that the most likely origin of the Dubesses family was Belgium but I would love to discover more about that. I had thought that most of the immigration occurred later than when the family appear in the Church records though? I know that there were Davison/Davyson people living in the general area in the very early 1500s but I’m not sure if they are connected or not as my earliest ancestors definitely went by Dubessis/Dubesses first it seems often with ‘alias Davison’ or similar and then just Deveson (with alternate spellings) eventually. I’m not familiar with the history of the Huguenot/Walloon immigration around this time and have no idea how to go about discovering this marriage and any more information that might be out there on the family. My mother has done the DNA test and it showed 5% German so that may possibly have come from this line as she was mostly Irish and Southern English otherwise. Any advice would be great and much appreciated! Thank you, Tam Sent from Mail for Windows 10

    3. Hi Shane There's mention of Huguenots in Surrey at <https://www.exodus2013.co.uk/tag/huguenot/>, although in Richmond, about 30 miles from Farnham. If you haven't done so already, you might try posting to the Eng-Surrey list, too. See <https://mailinglists.rootsweb.com/listindexes/details?list_name=eng-surrey> for information and subscription instructions. Before you begin what might be a wild goose chase, best to determine exactly where your ancestors lived and go from there.

    2. Shane Tarry
    3. Margaret, There was an extended family living in Farnham in the 1600s with the last name TERRY. In addition, one of these people lived in Mortlake later in life, which I know had a Huguenot community. I have some small clues that suggest these people were Calvinists, but no hard proof.  First names in this family include: MatthewMathiasJacobMosesJudithMarieWilliamNathanielAnthonyAliceAnne I have found a Matieu, Judith and Guillaume TIERY at the Southampton church in the late 1500s, but haven't been able to connect them to this family. As far as occupations are concerned, a couple were woolen drapers. Three others became successful vintners in London. As far as I can tell, these vintners only appear in London parish churches. Any opinions on whether or not these people were French Protestants greatly appreciated.

    1. [HWE] Re: Protestant baptisms and marriages to Niort 1637-1669
    2. Dear Jon, Curious about the search for the Niort Register. Is it at all possible that the photo or photocopy of the front page was a record of the register when they looked at it? Not necessarily possessing the actual register? If it had existed, the most likely location I would think is the Centre Jean Revierre, La Couarde, Deux Sevres. I went there in June and left them info on the records we hold at the Huguenot Museum of families from the Deux Sevres who entered the congregation at Bristol and Plymouth in Quarto Series Vol 20.

    3. >From the RootsWeb home page: Update: January 23, 2018 "Great news on the progress of getting RootsWeb back online. Today, we are bringing WorldConnect, one of our most valued features, back online. As we make WorldConnect available, it will initially be in a read only state. You can now search for people and view information as you did in the past; but for now, we cannot accept new uploads or modifications to existing GEDCOM files. We expect to add this additional functionality in the coming weeks. "Also, here are answers to a few questions we’ve heard from the community: "Why is this taking so long? RootsWeb has many terabytes of data uploaded by users across its various features. The site also has hundreds of thousands of lines of code. We have been scanning the data using a variety of tools, and that takes time. We’ve also been examining the code and the underlying systems. Some code is being refurbished, and some will need to be more fully rewritten to add the layers of security needed in this day and age. We know it may be frustrating, but we are committed to returning data to you in a safe manner. "Have you found any other security problems? We haven’t found any other problems, but we want to thoroughly update systems to ensure the safety of your information. "Is Ancestry going to start charging for RootsWeb? Ancestry is not going to start charging for RootsWeb. When functionality returns to the site, you will still be able to view content for free.

    1. [HWE] The name 'Braven(d)er'
    2. Dr M M Gilchrist
    3. Hi! I'm interested in anyone else connected with the above name, which is derived from 'Brabanter' and seems to appear on the East Coast of England in late 16-17C. and which I suspect may be connected with Protestants from the Low Countries. Mine are in the Scarborough area by late 18-mid-19C, but the line is a bit confused because there's a lot of illegitimacy involved. best wishes, Marianne
