I'm a descendant of John & Margaret's daughter Sarah Matilda born 1824/5 IOW Norwood. I have the details of their children if anyone needs them

I've emailed the Mairie at Verdun to find out how I can trace the marriage of 1810. I however had the surname NAEL found on the IOW birth record of her children. Others though on Curious Fox have the surname Noel.

I don't know if Dave Parkman replied or not - I am descended from John parkman & Marguerite Noel's daughter Sarah Matilda & have found out a lot about Verdun & the navy at that time through various e-books & web sites. If you are still interested then please get in touch. I am also in touch with Dave Parkman.

JOhn Parkman, born portsea 1783 was a master mate on the HMS Magnificent in 1804 and was on duty blockading the French port of Brest, Brittany. They hit an unchartered rock most of the crew were rescued by HMS Pickle but in the storm the boat that John Parkman was in was pushed ashore and he was then marched from Brest to Verdun where he stayed until May 1814 when he returned to UK.

In 1810 he married Marguerite Noel( a french seamstress) in Verdun. When he returned to England he asked permission to visit friends on the Isle of Wight and there he stayed to have his family. At this point in time I do not know if they had any children in France that remained in France.

His parents were John Parkman & Ann Keverne married in Falmouth 1779

They lived on the Isle of wight Hampshire, Tinkers lane when they returned to England. His Father was John Parkman and he married Ann Keverne in 1799, Falmouth. I don't know any more back beyond that date until I can confirm exactly who her parents were. several Ann Keverne's were born within a similar timespan, all in St Keverne, Cornwall - See Cannon Diggers transcripts on the St Keverne web site.

Do you have Ann Parkman's brothers & sisters? I take it this is Ann Parkman born circa 1827. Have you tried the Isle of Wight Family history society site as they have online BMD index from 1837 onwards - searchable by mothers maiden name & father's surname. The 1841 & 1851 census list the family details.
