Taylor m. Bouquet

Update: 1 September 2013

Ethel Florence TAYLOR m. Ernest Edward R. BOUQUET 1898

Ernest's father was Edward Robinson Bouquet, and thanks to other researchers, Huguenot records, I am able to make the link back to Pierre & Elizabeth.

Peter BOUQUET, Weaver, was of an age to be Peter (m. ROUSSIGNOL)'s grandfather, and of the generation of the above Peter's father - but no indications to show that was so (at November 2011). He died in 1726, and therefore was older than Peter BOUQUET married Marie CHAUVIN.

   (father: Peter BOUQUET, Schoolmaster; mother: Ann; of M.E.O.T) entry no. 8970 (Docklands Ancestors X097/286)

An Elizabeth ROUSSIGNOL was b. 11, Chr. 21, July 1723 La Patente French Huguenot, Spitalfields, London (father: Pierre ROUSSIGNOL, mother: Louisse GROLLEAU); this may, or may not, have been Peter BOUQUET's wife, in view of her age; although if 1764 was the birth of her last child it remains possible.

* In the "Docklands Ancestors" records on findmypast, the entry was:
- Thomas Robert BOUQUET b. 24 January, Chr. 17 February, 1813 St Dunstan, Stepney High Street (Father: James John of Mile End Old Town (M.E.O.T.), Gentleman, Mother: Mary Jane) (source: Docklands Ancestors, ref. X024/016). The orignal has been examined again, and the entry (Docklands Ancestors, findmypast.com) is being corrected to "James Robert BOUQUET" (7 August 2011). (Detailed Huguenot records state clearly "James Robert BOUQUET" for the same birth/baptism dates, and link him into his family.)

** No obvious birth registration for an Alexander, but this MAY have been the appropriate entry (although a nameless baby usually meant stillbirth, or death shortly after birth):
Male BOUQUET b. 1Q 1841 (Hackney 3/147)

*** Ancestry.com index: "James Mudden BOUQET"

**** Although James John & Mary Jane already had a son James, on pg. 185 of the register of "Baptisms solemnized in the Parish of Wst. Hackney in the County of Middlesex in the Year 1829" is the entry:
May 13th, No. 1475.
Child's Christian Name: James
Parents Name, Christian, Surname: John & Mary Jane BOUQUET
Abode: Wellington place, W. Hy.
Quality, Trade or Profession: Bank Clerk
By whom the Ceremony was performed: E. BUCH Rector

Hypothesis: when making notes the Rector removed the "James" from James John, and added it to the register as the child's given name, forgetting the "Philip"? (Did Huguenot Rectors, as non-conformist Ministers, tour between religious centres, making notes which were later transferred to a central register?)

***** Amelia Susanna BOUQUET Chr. 25 June 1792 [b. 26 April?] ... Father: Peter (Schoomaster), Mother: Ann

While the qualifications for a schoolmaster might also have permitted of becoming a bank clerk, and vice-versa, I have so far found other indication that a Peter BOUQUET from this group was a schoolmaster; neither have I found another Peter BOUQUET who married an Ann and might have been the schoolmaster. At the same time the Peter BOUQUET who wrote the Will below would seem not to have been poor, since Probate was in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury.

Many members of the family, born in the first half of the 19thC, give their pob as Hackney, or Stoke Newington, or Shacklewell.

1855 - "Shacklewell is a hamlet of West Hackney district, parish and Union of Hackney, in Ossulstone Hundred, and Tower division. It is about 2 miles north of Shoreditch church, in Hackney brook, and is a metropolitan district." (Post Office Directory)

Bouquet v. Robinson

This law-suit refers to the legacies by John HINDLE to both BOUQUET and ROBINSON:

1857: Court of Chancery
ROBINSON v. BOUQUET, Bill only - R16.
Clerks of Records and Writs Office: Pleadings 1853-1860 (filed 1857, added to thereafter)
Q. and R. plaintiffs (C 15/415: The National Archives, Kew)
Complaint of 5th February 1857 by Septimus ROBINSON
Relating to terms of Will of John HINDLE of Nelson Lodge, Stoke Newington, Middlesex, dated 13th March 1854
Awarded 12th February 1857 by order dated 10th February 1857
Amended 17th February by order dated 16th February 1857
Bouquet versus Robinson - online very soon

Bouquet v. Waller

A law-suit, in Chancery, which may also relate to this family, as well as to the above dispute. The death of John HINDLE resulted in the sale of property to satisfy creditors BOUQUET, WALLER. A Thomas Hindle BOUQUET was b. 1852, died 1853, and was buried in Abney Park (non-conformist) Cemetery (Thomas' birth certificate not yet obtained); Mary Hindle BOUQUET was b. 1854.
Bouquet versus Waller

Bouquet v. Farrer

Since this refers to Chancery, it seems unlikely to concern an outstanding bill: Henry Ward FARRER is listed as Wine Merchant in 1871. (I will buy the document - eventually!)
