Hello Julie

I can't do anything until next Wed at the earliest and as the date is too early for formal registration the only hope is if he was baptized.
I'll get back to you

Hi Louise
I have been and looked at the marriage entry for Georgina Fox - these are the details.

20th October 1937
Marcel Louis Bérézay, aged 24, bachelor, occupation barman, born in St Helier, living in St Helier, father Eugene Nicolas Bérézay, gardener

Georgina Edith Fox, aged 20, spinster, born St Helier, living St Helier, father Henry John Fox, plasterer.

Witnesses E N Bérézay and N R Bérézay

I forget to make a note of the church but it was almost certainly St Thomas's as that was the French church. I'll make sure next time I'm there if you want to know.

All the best

Pam

Hi Pam

Thanks for that I am pretty sure that is her as almost all the details match, though I was supprised that both the witnesses were Berezay's and that one was not her family. If you could check the church please that would be a great help.

Thanks again

Louise

Unfortunately they do not hold any Jewish records at the Archive. I looked through all the parish records for that time and could not find him anywhere. In fact the only Samuel I found was this baptism,
10/3/1834 in the parish of St Lawrence, Harriet Sophia daughter of Susan May and David Samuel, if he was born in 1811 she might just be his daughter.

Hi Pam

Could you please try to find a record of the birth of John Picot b1822 on Jersey. I'm afraid I don't know any more.

Hello Grahame

Your only hope is if he was baptized, even then it could be in any of the 12 parishes, and Picot is a very common name over here.
Have you tried to pinpoint him in any of the Jersey censuses?
Does this one look likely?
1851
Name: John Picot
Age: 29
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1822
Relation: Head
Spouse's Name: Mary
Gender: Male
Where born: St Saviour, Jersey, Channel Islands
Civil Parish or Township: St Saviour
County/Island: Jersey
Country: Channel Islands
Street address: View Image
Condition as to marriage: View Image
Occupation: View Image
Disability: View Image
Registration district: Jersey
ED, institution, or vessel: 1
Household schedule number: 176
Household Members:

Hello Louise

I re-checked the marriage entry and they did marry at St Thomas's Church, Val Plaisant, St Helier. The church is still the main Catholic church in the island.
Witnesses were both his family.

Marcel's birth is registered in St Helier between Sept 1910 and July 1912, probably nearer July 1912 as it's on page 99, I can check the full entry if you want me to do any digging into his background.

Regards

Pam

If you could check Marcel's background that would be great.

Hello Grahame

This is the only one I could find that came anywhere close.

19/5/1822 St Saviour
Jean Picot son of Jean Picot and Anne Le Geyt
godparents - the father and Jeanne Picot, his sister.

All the best

Thanks for trying. Problem I have is that he moved to Kent before the children were born I think so I can't pinpoint him. His wife was a Mary but she was Irish and I don't know if they married in Jersey or England. Perhaps I'll look for a marriage.

Thanks again

Hi Pam

Its me again.
My George and Ellen Salmon lived at 76 Bath Street, St Helier. According to Google this address is now an Indian restaurant. Is there any way of finding out what it was before this. There has been talk of my Salmons owning a hotel???
Any help would be appreciated once again

regards

Hello Gina
I think there is a system in place at the Archive that can trace house history - I've never used it but I can see if I can find someone to give me a quick tutorial :)
The other possibility may be to look in the Almanac and Rate lists

Hi Gina
Just back from a quick trip to the Archive.
George William bought the property in 1963 and in 1964 it was the Belmont Café, from 1965 until 1973 (when Ellen died) it went upmarket and became the Restorante Belmonte.
There is no indication that it was ever a hotel or guest house and to be honest it's not really in the right part of town for that.

Gina Report 18 Sep 2008 16:02

Many thanks for that info Pam. Perhaps the 'hotel' in question was actually the cafe/restaurant.

thanks again
