Thanks, Alex Glendinning <> for responding to my query;
appreciate you taking the time. You found:
>David Terry (1798-1876) married Mary Le Marchand (1800-1870)
>They married in St Helier 4.1.1829 both of the parish
So this must not be the David & Mary who had a child in Gaspe in 1820
.......blows holes right thru' my 'story' doesn't it?.......unless they
had married before a JP prior to clergy arriving in Gaspe c.
1819.....but if that were the case they could have church married at the
time of their daughter's baptism.......methinks 'my' David's wife Mary
must not be this Mary Le Marchand .....unless of course this David's
parents were a David & Elizabeth......
You also kindly provided:
>In the 1851 Census Mary J Terry [born in Gaspe in
>abt. 1821]is living in the household of her uncle & aunt:
My 'story' isn't coming together as simply as I'd hoped....but does that
ever happen???? :>) Raises the question was she living w/ an aunt b/c
her parents were deceased.... or is there a David & Mary also on the
>..the St Helier Marriage indices 1797-1824 & 1824-1837 ..... shows Hugh Godfray marrying Marie Elizabeth Terry 6.4.1820.
Indice might be too late for a marriage between a David Terry &
Elisabeth ??? but .....leads me to wonder if Marie Elizabeth's parents
might have been 'my' David & Elizabeth....but then I'd have to ask why
was Marie Eliz in Jersey in 1820 when 'my' David & Elizabeth were in
Ah well, guess the Gaspe David Terry couples will have to remain a
mystery........but thanks so much Alex for your time & the info you
provided ....as we say, a negative answer is still an answer..... :>)
