Hi Amandine,
Thank you for your reply to my message. I also am not always notified of replies to my postings, so I have to go back and check. Thanks for confirming that the name was Havoué and the name of the street was Trézel. I was surprised to find that this street runs parallel to rue Lacroix where the Coutard /Hurard families lived and that if the numbering hasn't changed the 2 addresses 40 Lacroix and 8 Docteur Heulin would appear to back onto each other. I'll try to verify this using Google Earth. I was never looking for the Coutard / Mawle marriage in France because I knew that they were married in Soho, London in 1872. I was rather looking for their descendants of whom there seem to be very few. They had 5 children of whom 2 had died;confirmed by Maria Elizabeth Hurard on the 1911 census. The eldest child, Blanche Anna died at rue lacroix in 1884, aged 11. The other must have been Alice Désirée whose birth in 1875 you uncovered for me. No further mention of her. The only son, Louis Ernest Aimé seems to have been born in new York about 1874,married Margaret Gosling in 1906 had a daughter Vera in 1908. I don't know when or where Louis died, but Margaret was already a widow when she died in Connecticut in 1957. Their daughter, Vera seems to have never married as she died with her maiden name in Fresno, California in 1988. The 3rd Coutard daughter, Louise Maude born in rue Lacroix in 1876 married my granddad's cousin,her 2nd cousin, Arthur Barber Mawle in Hastings in 1901. They had no children and emigrated to the US in 1907. Louise died in Jacksonville, Florida in 1944. Arthur subsequently returned to England and married again. The youngest daughter, Maria Alice who was born in rue Lacroix in 1881 married Michel Henri Massonat sometime between 1901 and 1906 when they were living in Alberta, Canada. Henry, as he was known was a jeweller born in the 3rd arr., Paris in 1879. I haven't found any children born to them. Alice, as she was known was present at the death of her mother, Maria Elizabeth Hurard in Hastings in 1925. Alice died in Kent in 1941 and her will left everything to Frank Richard Beney.So it looks like I'll find no living descendants but who knows - maybe someone has info and photos of these people. Thanks again for all your help. As i've said before - you're a superstar!! Cheers, Dave
