Hi everyone has anyone or does anyone have any information to hand on the St Jean family from Canterbury Kent?
I am tracing my family tree and have traced them to Hugunot descent, and they were in Canterbury Kent, then they moved to Spitalfields London, and many stayed in London and are still in and around London today - although they are known as St John.
I am at 1641 ish -I have Nicaise St Jean whom had several children although no Mother to be found yet.. I would like to know his family or to trace it further back -I beleive they lived in UK from early 1500's -
They were in the Walloon and Strangers church Canterbury, Kent, UK.
I am even looking at the 'other' Matthias Senchon whom married Sarah unknown, as he was a shoemaker... and his son was a cordwinder..to see if there is a link there..could Mathias be Nicaise's brother?both names are hebrew which were names chosen by Huguenots.. in english they would be Nicholas and Matthew. I may be barking up the wrong tree, but to find Nicaise's familyhis father and mother would be good.
