This snippet of information may or may not be related but I find it interesting how Dequetteville Terrace (Adelaide) was named and the connection to a Mrs Robin.
The name appears as "Dequeteville" on a plan of the subdivision of Kent Town lodged in the General Registry Office (no. 226 of 1854) by the subdividers, Henry Ayers and James Robin. The latter was born in Guernsey, Channel Isles in 1817 and his mother was a daughter of Rev John de Quetteville, the first Wesleyan Minister in the Channel Isles.

An obituary of Mrs James Robin is in the Observer,
