Hello Margaret, thank you for the "follow-up". I know from this will, and i have a copy from the will of his father Stephen/Etienne.Thank you. If you are interested in his descendancy, mail me please. For the prehistory in France and the connections there was Jacky Delefontelle the source. He is (or was) in many Forums. He has a own website and has so far I know, more informations about the hugenots out of the archiv in the french hospital london - the most important archiv. To the Governour: So far I know, is he a member of a gentry family, who is since the 16. C. in (west) england. Sorry i forgot these possibilities. Unfortunately there are many Sorel(l)s. Best wishes L.
