>In 1883 a John Baptiste Poindestre - listed on the marriage register as a
"Ship's Master" - married Sarah Munro @ Paspebiac. She was the grandaughter
of Loyalists settled at Paspebiac in 1784. Neither of them appear on the
church rolls or town records again. Later family records list a son born of
this marriage - probably in Jersey. Sarah left her husband and family and
came back to Canada - so perhaps there was also another marriage for John B.
Poingdestre sometime aout 1790 or later. The child must have been raised
either by a "new" wife of John's, or by his parents or other relatives. As
late as 1910 Sarah notes on the US Census that he is still alive, but at no
time was he with her after she returned to the Atlantic Coast.
A while back I replied: John Baptise Poingdestre does not show up in any
Jersey records and presently I have no idea where to fit him in !!!
Well - this showed up today in the Jersey Archive Catalogue - John Batist
Podester!!!! of 68 The Esplanade, St Helier. A will dated 18.11.1905
I have requested the document and will let you know tomorrow if it gives us
