Please does ANYONE on here research this person please?

I have found out from Jersey archives that Theodore was in prison on Jersey Channel Islands 13 times! This was for theft, assault and burglary from 1869 - 1878. He was then deported to Borstal in the UK I have found him in the 1881 census there.

I have the court records from the Jersey archives which are on French but I am having them transcribed into English.

I also have the copies of the newspaper reports which I got from Jersey library.

Thanks for looking at this.

Hoping to here from you soon.

Hello Diane, really the only way for you to find out is to use the Search facility above and see if anyone else has him in their trees and then make contact.

Thank you very much for that.

No problem Diane. If there's anything specific that we can help you with, though, do please give details and we'll give it a shot!
