Mary Ann Johnson

red mail Lecand Izard in Hertfordshire. Daniel possibly son of Louis and Ann?
Hello have had great help with this line already so thought to post here again and see what there is about these people. Okay basically my ancestor was a Daniel Le Cand who married a Sara Izard (sometimes spelt in later records as Isard/ Yzat/ Izzard/ Easard/ Hazard) in 1767 at All Saints Hertfordshire; witnesses Jno Crawley and Mary King. Sara cannot write and her signature is Mary Izzard with her mark (the Mary Izard is probably a typo by the registrar due to Mary King as the witness, as such a typo happened in another marriage also in my tree). My own ancestor by them was Charlotte Lecand baptised 1777 Spitalfields, London (Artillery Lane to be exact). Daniel also had children called Ann (1769) and Louis (1773) and there WAS a married Huguenot couple in Hertfordshire called Louis and Ann Le Cand/ Lecand. However that Huguenot couple in Hertfordshire, although older than Daniel Le Cand and Sara Izard Le Cand dont seem to have any dates attached to them so its hard to be certain; yes, they are older but they could easily be only a bit older and thus not a real possibility. Daniel died in either December 1808 or January 1809- his death registered January 1809- and according to the age given on his death 1739/1740 is when he should start appearing in records such as a baptism or whatever. His children are listed below; all were baptised at the artillery lane Huguenot church in Spitalfields, London. Noting how early Ann and Louis are it does seem that the Ann and Louis married couple in Hertfordshire could be correct but again dont have any dates in them  Ann Lecand 1769 Sara Lecand 17711798 Louis Lecand 1773 William (Guillaume) Lecand 1775 Charlotte Lecand (my ancestor, would marry Joseph Harwood and my ancestor through them was Louis Thomas Lecand Harwood). 17771853 Elizabeth Jeanne Lecand 17791832 Jeanne Lecand 17811781 Benjamin Louis Lecand 17831863 Marie Lecand 1785 Henriette Lecand 1788
Was your birth name McMILLAN?Were you adopted in 1949/50/51 Are you a male? Was your birth mother McMILLAN also?Did she come from Newcastle upon Tyne? Do you have any information about where you were adopted from?Could it have been St ALBANS or near to there? If the above COULD be you then please get in touch via Curious Fox as there maybe a strong biological connection.Thank you

red mail Richard Crouch (Crowch) of Hertfordshire
Looking for the parents of Richard Crouch (Crowch) of Hertfordshire. He came to America in Jan 1726 as an Indentured Servant recruited in London and settled in Henrico County latter Goochland County, Virginia, USA. His indenture period was four years and he purchased 150 acres of land almost immediately after his indenture was over. As he had to be at least 21 years of age to buy land it is thought he was born by or before 1709. There was also a Mary Crouch in Goochland, Virginia at this time and it is not known if she was related to the Richard Crouch that I'm interested in.
Mary WILMOT née POTTER 1786
Mary WILMOT was convicted of larceny at Elstree on 3 May 1810 (Easter Sessions Class HO27 Piece 6, Page 94 Larceny) and deported to Australia leaving England 21 January 1811 on "Friends". She gave birth to Elizabeth during the voyage - the ship arrived October 1811. On 30 March 1813 in Windsor, NSW, she married Daniel BROWN. He, too, arrived in NSW 18th January 1812 on the "Guildford" as a convict. On 16 February 1822 a request was made on behalf of Daniel BROWN for Richard POTTER ("his wife's brother") to be released to his employ. This is proof that Mary WILMOT was, indeed, Mary POTTER. There is a suggestion that her previous husband was William WILMOT but I am seeking evidence of this if anyone can help. Joan
